Young actress Jennifer Syme was 8 years younger than Reeves. The talented girl received her first serious job with famous director David Lynch, playing a minor role in one of his films.

She met Keanu in 1998, a year after her debut on the big screen. By that time, the famous actor had already lived through substantial grief: a childhood spent without a father and friends because of frequent relocations, followed by the death of a best friend. Reeves always carefully concealed the details of his personal life, and his love affair with Syme was probably the first serious one.

A year into their relationship, the happy couple was preparing for the birth of their daughter, Ava. She was supposed to come to a world with an equipped room, mountains of toys and clothes, and loving mom and dad. Unfortunately, on Christmas Eve 1999, the girl was stillborn. Reeves has been rumored to hate this holiday ever since.

The loss of their first child was a massive blow for the couple: shortly after the funeral, Jennifer and Keanu broke up. Soon after that, in April 2001, the girl passed away in a tragic car accident. She was buried next to baby Ava.

Almost two decades have passed since then, but a new woman has never appeared in Reeves’ life. The details of his relationship with Syme remain unknown.

All these years, Reeves led a modest, reserved life, donating part of his profits for the fight against leukemia. This is the problem that his sister, and probably only devoted friend, Kim, was struggling with. He doesn’t attend pompous social events, but rather plunges into work and charity. He could often be seen on the streets of Los Angeles and New York, walking without guards and other celebrity attributes.

He is always impeccably stylish. He would have always been surrounded by fans if it weren't for the immense sadness in his eyes that stops them from disturbing the actor in vain. Jennifer’s accident must have been the turning point that made him change his lifestyle so drastically.

No matter how strong or wealthy we might be, any person is capable of giving up in the face of difficulties. Usually, we start to appreciate what we had, only after it’s gone. Some eventually move on, while others remain loyal to the only real feeling for decades. Millions of people would like Reeves to be happy, but the incredible power of his love is reassuring indeed.
