Keanu Reeves enjoys a stroll with girlfriend Alexandra Grant in Berlin

Keanu Reeves was the perfect gentleman as he stepped out with girlfriend Alexandra Grant in Berlin on Sunday.

The John Wick star, 56, could be seen carrying three heavy bags of shopping while strolling alongside the visual artist, 47, in the German capital.

Enjoying the crisp Autumnal afternoon, Keanu could be seen looking lovingly at Alexandra as they headed towards their car after picking up some essentials.

Keanu kept things casual as he wrapped up in a black winter coat that he wore over a matching hoodie and dark denim jeans.

The actor, who is currently filming The Matrix 4 in Berlin, covered his head with a black beanie, after shaving off his long locks for the role.

Alexandra, meanwhile, put on a casual chic display in a puffy black jacket that she slipped on over a simple t-shirt and grey leggings. 

Wearing her silver locks in a half-up hairdo, Alexandra looked relaxed as she stayed close to Keanu during the outing.

Ever since Reeves and Grant went public in November last year, there has been much speculation about when they first started dating.

Some publications said they had been romantic for only a few months but then in June, Jennifer Tilly told Page Six that they had been an item for ‘years’.

Ohio-born Grant is an artist and philanthropist, who has worked in the arts since graduating from Swarthmore College in 1994 with a BA in history and studio art.

The artist is known for her use of language and exchanges with writers as a source for imagery in her sculpture, painting, drawing, and video works.

She fostered her love for the spoken word as a child, after growing up around the world, living in Mexico, Spain and France.

Grant has exhibited at prestigious spaces around the world including Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), Galerie Gradiva in Paris and The Harris Lieberman Gallery in New York.

In 2008, Alexandra founded the philanthropic grantLOVE project which produces and sells original artworks and editions to benefit artist projects and arts non-profits.

Alexandra and Keanu have a history that goes back years, first collaborating together on a grown-up’s picture book, Ode to Happiness, in 2011.

The book was a success, sparking the poet-artist duo to create their second book together, Shadows, in 2016, with Grant photographing Reeves while he was filming John Wick.

Since then, the two have been spotted together at art galleries, book signings, posed for Vogue Spain and even travelled to Germany to work together.

Speaking of working together on their second book, Grant told W Magazine: ‘We can spend a lot of time debating. Like, A raspberry hue? And should it be darker? We can get obsessive.’

Shadows is compiled of dark silhouette images of Reeves taken by Grant and poetry written by the Matrix actor.

Grant told the Los Angeles Times of her collaborator: ‘No one can move the way he can. He’s a really extreme performer. That’s a huge piece of why those images are so interesting…

‘I knew that if I moved the camera as we danced together, as photographer and subject, we could create these wonderful optical illusions.’

In June, Alexandra was seen spending time with Keanu and his co-stars Neil Patrick Harris and Carrie-Ann Moss as they shot scenes, months after production had ground to a halt amid the novel coronavirus pandemic. 

The Matrix 4 will be released in 2021 and production began in early January with Lana Wachowski returning as co-writing and director, and while filming stopped in Berlin in March the stars were returning to the German capital in June.
