The mystery woman who made Keanu Reeves beam while they were out to dinner on Monday night is a LA artist and photographer, DailyMail.com can reveal.
The 53-year-old actor was in high spirits as he left Madeo — a romantic Italian restaurant in West Hollywood — with silver-haired beauty Alexandra Grant.
The 44-year-old and Reeves have a history that goes back years, first collaborating together on a grown-up's picture book, Ode to Happiness, in 2011.
The book was a success, sparking the poet-artist duo to create their second book together, Shadows, in 2016, with Grant photographing Reeves while he was filming John Wick.
Since then, the two have been spotted together at art galleries, book signings, posed for Vogue Spain and even traveled to Germany to work together.

Speaking of working with Reeves to the LA Times, Grant said: 'No one can move the way he can. He's a really extreme performer'
According to the Fairview Park, Ohio native's website, Grant describes herself as a 'text-based artist who uses language and networks of words as the basis for her work in painting, drawing and sculpture.'
Grant has been featured at shows at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, the Contemporary Museum in Baltimore and other galleries across the country, as well as overseas.
Speaking of working together on their second book, Grant told W Magazine: 'We can spend a lot of time debating. Like, "A raspberry hue? And should it be darker?" We can get obsessive.'
Shadows is compiled of dark silhouette images of Reeves taken by Grant.
Grant told the LA Times: 'No one can move the way he can. He's a really extreme performer.
'That's a huge piece of why those images are so interesting. I knew that if I moved the camera as we danced together, as photographer and subject, we could create these wonderful optical illusions.'
The book features poetry by the Matrix actor, which accompanies the haunting images.
