Up until recently, Keanu Reeves was known for some of his leading roles in the past – but he has seen a major resurgence since the success of
John Wick films. Not only has Reeves coming back to the Hollywood spotlight for his films, but he's also known as one of the nicest men in the industry. And the fact that he has remained single while seemingly wishing he had a family of his own has not gone unnoticed.
Fans would love to see Reeves date, but after a recent tabloid he was seeing Angelina Jolie, fans unleashed their real feelings. ” class=”wp-image-1157342″/>

It's no secret that Reeves has a tragic past. In the late '90s, he was in a serious relationship with actress Jennifer Syme, and they even planned to have a child together. Unfortunately, their child was a stillborn baby girl, and this seemed to create tension in their relationship, resulting in a breakup. Syme then died in a car accident after losing control of her jeep in 2000. Since then, according to Reeves' friend, the famous actor has had difficulty forming deep bonds with those close to him. "Sometimes, it's almost like he does not trust himself to have a relationship with anyone," the friend allegedly told People.
Now that everyone is well aware that Reeves is single, it seems they're pushing him to date, too. Sandra Bullock's name has been thrown out there after Reeves mentioned to Ellen DeGeneres that she once had a crush on her, and Charlize Theron has also been mentioned. It seems the latest in the rumor mill is Angelina Jolie, too. ” class=”wp-image-1157346″/>

Gossip Cop notes the tabloid Star claimed Angelina Jolie asked Keanu Reeves out. According to the report, the two met back in 2017 and found they had a lot in common with each other. "Keanu gives her butterflies! After all, he's just her type – edgy and a bit of a rogue. Plus, she thinks he's gorgeous, "he claimed. The insider then apparently remarked that Jolie got her friend to reach out to Reeves to ask him on a date that would include "an intimate dinner at her house."
Reeves' reps have completely dispelled this story, however. Gossip Cop notes Reeves' spokesperson said they sent this statement to Star: "Your story is completely false and has no basis in any truth. This event never occurred. Once again, you are manufacturing and inventing lies to increase your sales for purely financial gain. "There is also plenty of evidence to support Angelina's work on tons of her own projects and she does not have time to date either ” class=”wp-image-1157349″/>

It seems fans are quite happy that Reeves and Jolie are not really getting together. One Yahoo user said they can not stand Jolie and she lost a ton of respect for her when she started dating Brad Pitt. "After seeing the recent posts about what a gentleman Keanu Reeves is during photo-ops; I cringed when I read the title about a possible connection between him and Angelina, "they said.
And yet another person commented in the same forum," Is it weird I'm happy this is not true? I did not know either of these people personally, but I've been a fan of Keanu's since I was a kid and he just seems too good for her. "But another echoed this sentiment with," Thank god Reeves avoided that disease. He is one of the few actors left that is down to earth and treats everyone with respect. "
We're not sure if or who, Reeves will date in the future – but it seems certain that fans will react better than they made it to fake Jolie news.
