But let’s take a look at the woman, who was the love of the Matrix star’s life until a sudden tragedy struck.

Keanu Reeves and Jennifer Syme

Keanu Reeves and his former girlfriend Jennifer Syme were together for a few years. The couple met at a party and it was love from the first side. Soon, the Matrix star bought a house where he moved in with Jennifer.

Just over a year of bliss, Syme got pregnant with the couple’s first child. Sadly, the baby was stillborn. Losing their child put a massive strain on their relationship and, eventually, they broke up, still grieving.

But Keanu had no idea that it wouldn’t be the last heartbreaking loss in his life. In 2001, Jennifer got into a car accident and passed away on the scene. She was just 28 years old.

The actor later admitted that it was incredibly difficult ‘to cope with her death.’ He had never married or had any serious relationships since then. Until Alexandra Grant stole his heart.

Keanu and Alexandra are believed to be friends for 10 years but no one knows when exactly their friendship grew into something much bigger.
