Most fans had two questions after seeing Keanu Reeves grace the LACMA Art + Film Gala red carpet with a silver-haired mystery woman. And, is that Helen Mirren? According to Page Six, an inordinate number of Twitter users mistook Grant for the 70-something actress, but it should be noted that Grant is in her 40s. How is that mistake even possible? Reeves' rumored lady love isn't the Caligula actress.

What you need to know about Keanu Reeves and Alexandra Grant

She actually isn't even an actress at all. Grant is an artist whose work has been displayed in galleries and museums across Los Angeles, New York City and Paris. Her website states that her art "probes ideas of translation, identity, dis/location, and social responsibility" through "the use of text and language in various media — painting, drawing, sculpture, film, and photography," and she's been doing it for a long time. In an interview with LA Weekly, Grant admitted she's been an artist since she was a child, and her art includes "reading, staring into space, daydreaming, inventing symphonic-scale projects whether a chemistry experiment or growing seeds into plants, finding meaning in the patterns of bathroom tiles and cracks in the ceiling, believing in the goodness of people and love, drawing while listening to music, experiencing language as images and colors, and desiring to be solitary while doing most of the above." She's also a philanthropist who founded the grantLOVE project, which raises cash for "arts-based non-profits."
