Helen Mirren Flattered to be compared to Keanu Reeves� Date

In response to Keanu Reeves bringing a date, Alexandra Grant, to the recent LACMA Art + Film Gala, Twitter blew up with tweets mistaking Grant for veteran actress Helen Mirren. Both women were rocking silver hair and statuesque postures, as well as striking fashion. On the red carpet premiere for her new film The Good Liar, Mirren was asked if she heard about the mix-up. “I saw that, that was very flattering on me, you know, because she’s obviously lovely.”

Mirren also mentioned how she personally knows Reeves: her husband, director Taylor Hackford, worked with Reeves on the 1997 film The Devil’s Advocate. “I do know Keanu very well. He did a film with my husband and he is just the most adorable, lovely person,” Mirren said. “So she’s a luck girl and I’m sure that he’s a lucky boy.”
