Did Keanu Reeves Once Date His ‘John Wick’ Co-Star Halle Berry?
Keanu Reeves is not only one of Hollywood’s nicest guys, but one of the entertainment industry’s all-time heartthrobs as well. For decades, Reeves has heated up the screen in various roles, from his action-packed scenes in John Wick to the romantic drama of The Lake House.
Still, when it comes to his personal life, Reeves has always been a more low-key sort of guy. He rarely discusses his relationships with members of the press and doesn’t often confirm his romantic partners. However, that doesn’t stop the public from speculating, and in 2018, Reeves was linked to one of the entertainment industry’s most beautiful leading ladies.
Keanu Reeves has been linked to a few high-profile actors
Reeves first entered the movie business in the ’80s, rising to fame with his work in comedies such as Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure. By the ’90s, Reeves was a box-office draw, and fans all over the world were heavily invested in his personal life.
During the early years of his career, Reeves was linked to actors Jill Schoelen, Winona Ryder, and even director Sofia Coppola. Reeves’s longest-lasting relationship was with Jennifer Syme, whom he started dating in 1999. The two went through tragedy after their daughter, Ava, was stillborn at eight months, and they split up not long after.
After Reeves and Syme broke up, the actor became more private than ever, and even though he was rumored to have dated Claire Forlani and even Sandra Bullock, it wasn’t until recently that Reeves became bold enough to step out on the red carpet with his longtime friend, Alexandra Grant.
Keanu Reeves and Halle Berry worked together in 2018
Perhaps because Reeves is so intensely private, his fans have worked overtime speculating about his personal life — and the stunning actors that he could be involved with. In 2018, the gossip mill started churning when Halle Berry was cast in the third installment of the John Wick franchise, John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum. Berry portrayed Sofia Al-Azwar, a former assassin and good friend of John Wick.
The chemistry that Berry and Reeves shared onscreen was undeniable, and according to some reports, the two got to know each other very well offscreen as well.
Were Keanu Reeves and Halle Berry romantically involved?
A 2018 report by Life & Style Magazine claimed that Berry and Reeves started dating not long after they began filming John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum together. “Halle and Keanu are dating,” an anonymous source revealed to the publication. “They started seeing each other even before they began filming. As soon as they started getting to know each other, they realized there was something there that was stronger than a friendship.”
The source went on to claim that both Reeves and Berry were determined to keep the love affair very quiet and out of the tabloids, but went on to rave about Berry’s attraction to Reeves: “Keanu is totally Halle’s type. She likes that he’s very mysterious, introspective and down-to-earth. He’s not about the whole Hollywood spotlight thing. She finds that very attractive — and, of course, she thinks he’s super handsome.”
Ultimately, the affair, if it ever really existed at all, fizzled out, and neither performer ever confirmed that they dated to any media outlet. The idea of the two megastars together continues to intrigue fans, however.
