At the recent premiere of the latest installment in the "John Wick" franchise, Keanu Reeves found himself caught off guard by an impassioned declaration of love. The actor was approached by a female fan who went on to propose marriage, much to the amusement of those in attendance.
Surprising Outburst from the Audience
Variety reports that the unexpected proposal was met with a humorous response from Reeves, who quipped, "Yeah, be careful what you wish for." The 58-year-old actor was also quick to address another comment from a fan about his seemingly ageless appearance, stating, "Yeah man, I age.
I really—I age. It's happening, man."
Single and in a Relationship
It may come as a surprise to some that the renowned actor has never been married. Reeves is currently in a relationship with artist Alexandra Grant and has not been publicly involved in a romantic relationship for many years.
This is due to a tragedy he suffered in the 1990s, which saw him lose his partner and the child they were expecting.
Tragic Loss in the 1990s
In the late nineties, Reeves was in a relationship with actress Jennifer Syme. In 1999, Syme became pregnant but tragically lost the baby in the eighth month of pregnancy.
This devastating loss ultimately led to the end of their relationship and, just two years later, Syme was killed in a car accident in Los Angeles.
A Wedding Ring as a Memento
Despite never having been married, Reeves is known to own a wedding ring.
In the past, he has revealed that the ring is a memento from a film he starred in, and he has kept it as a reminder of his time on set.
Chatting at the Premiere
At the premiere, Reeves took part in a chat with Variety, during which he was asked about his favorite part of the film.
He was hesitant to give too much away, but his response elicited awws from the audience. When a fan shouted a question about a sequel to his 2005 film "Constantine," Reeves simply replied, "I’m trying, man." However, when it came to discussing "John Wick" spinoffs, the actor was more cautious, giving a reportedly "tentative" no on his involvement in the Peacock series "The Continental" and the Ana de Armas film "Ballerina."
