Who Has Keanu Reeves Dated?

One of the most popular, and successful leading men in Hollywood, is also one of the most private. We’re talking about the ever elusive and always intriguing Keanu Reeves. The Matrix star has found amazing success on screen, but his personal life has not always been so successful.

When it comes to Reeves dating history, it’s hard to sift through what is real, and what is only rumors. And, there are a lot of rumors for this ageless A-lister. That tends to happen when you refuse to openly share your personal life with the world. A hard feat to do in 2019. We can’t blame him for wanting his privacy, though.

Because Keanu Reeves values his privacy, and because he has been through a lot, this article will focus mostly on his confirmed relationships, and less on the rumors. 

Who has Keanu Reeves dated?

Generally known for being one of the nicest actors in Hollywood, Keanu Reeves has had several confirmed relationships. Most of his past relationships have been with other celebrities and even co-stars.

Jill Schoelen: Dated From 1986-1989

The John Wick star and Jill Schoelen met on the set of Babes in Toyland and started dating. They were together for about three years before another actor started catching her eye. She broke up with Reeves and started dating Brad Pitt. In fact, Schoelen was Brad Pitt’s first fiance. 

Sophia Coppola: Dated From 1991-1992

In 1991, Reeves reportedly met Sophia Coppola on the set of her father, Francis Ford Coppola’s movie, Bram Stoker’s Dracula. They were often photographed together, and she was regularly seen on the back of his motorcycle. Their relationship lasted about a year.

While filming the movie Speed, Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves dated briefly. Although the relationship was brief, they have remained great friends. After her very public divorce to Jesse James, Reeves reportedly help her through it.

Jennifer Syme: Dated From 1998-1999

Probably one of the most heartbreaking events in Reeves life started after meeting Jennifer Syme. According to him, he fell in love immediately after meeting in 1998. Soon after that Syme’s became pregnant. When the baby was delivered stillborn at eight months, Reeves was filming The Matrix. The couple was devastated, and within a few weeks, their relationship was over. 

To make this story even more tragic, there could be no reunion between Reeves and Syme, as she passed away after a car accident. A year and a half after losing his daughter, Ava Archer Syme-Reeves, he had to say goodbye to Jennifer too.

Claire Forlani: Dated From 2004-2006

Although Reeves and Claire Forlani dated for about two years, there are still a lot of rumors surrounding these two. One rumor is that they broke up after Reeves proposed to the Meet Joe Black actress.

He claims that never happened. Another rumor is that the two started dating again in 2008, while they were both in other relationships. The Daily Mail reported that the pair were spotted sharing a cigarette after a couple of dates in 2008. There is no confirmation that this is true.

Parker Posey: Possibly Dated in 2008

Although neither side has confirmed, either way, an onlooker at Chateau Marmont hotel said, “They were sharing a seat and sitting very, very close. They were laughing and joking and looked as though they were having a really good time. But it was probably the oddest couple I’ve ever seen!” Reported News.com.au. Posey later told the press they were discussing a role.

China Chow: Possibly Dated in 2008

Keanu Reeves and China Chow were caught swimming and playing on the beach in the French Riviera. She was also reportedly topless for at least part of the trip. Later they were photographed at a restaurant in Italy. Sounds a lot like a romantic European vacation.

Jamie Clayton: Rumors

Although Keanu Reeves has been linked to several other people, there is little proof that these rumors are true. Many “relationships” can be explained by business meetings, friendly get-togethers, or movie roles. Currently, rumors have suggested that Reeves is dating Jaime Clayton of Sense 8. Neither Reeves nor Clayton has confirmed or denied this rumor. 

Jaime Clayton is a transgendered activist and actress. If these two are dating, they’re not ready to go public. Furthermore, there would likely be more than just blurry images of them allegedly kissing because they are both very powerful and popular. It is not likely that either Reeves or Clayton could hide any relationship for long.

Right now there’s nothing to suggest that Keanu Reeves has had any serious relationships since the death of Jennifer Syme.
