In conclusion, no, Helen and Keanu aren't dating. In fact, the actress has been married to director Taylor Hackford for about 22 years. But she had sweet things to say about Keanu.

I do know Keanu very well. He did a film with my husband and he is just the most adorable, lovely person. So she's a lucky girl and I'm sure that he's a lucky boy.
