Keanu Reeves was seen giving his girlfriend Alexandra Grant a loving kiss goodbye on Sunday, as she dropped back to his Berlin hotel to continue filming The Matrix 4.
The Hollywood actor, 56, was spotted exiting his 47-year-old partner’s car in the centre of the German capital following their weekend break at her rented house.
Wearing a double layered coat with faded jeans and brown boots, Keanu leaned over to give artist and philanthropist Alexandra a kiss as she sat in the driver’s seat.
Kiss goodbye: Keanu Reeves was seen giving his girlfriend Alexandra Grant a loving kiss goodbye on Sunday, as she dropped back to his Berlin hotel to continue filming The Matrix 4
The couple chatted briefly, before they waved goodbye to one another and Alexandra returned to her rented property, where Keanu stays every weekend during breaks from filming the highly anticipated movie.
In June, Alexandra was seen spending time with Keanu and his co-stars Neil Patrick Harris and Carrie-Ann Moss as they shot scenes, months after production had ground to a halt amid the novel coronavirus pandemic.
The Matrix 4 will be released in 2021 and production began in early January with Lana Wachowski returning as co-writing and director, and while filming stopped in Berlin in March the stars were returning to the German capital in June.

Aleksandar Hemon and David Mitchell co-wrote the Matrix 4 script alongside Wachowski. Keanu is again playing Neo with Carrie-Ann back as well.
The Matrix 4 will also also feature Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, who’s best known to audiences as Black Manta in 2018’s Aquaman.

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 travelled to Germany to work together.
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 and poetry written by the Matrix actor.
Grant told the Los Angeles Times of her collaborator: ‘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 two founded publishing company X Artists’ Books in 2017, with a focus on ‘unusual collaborations’ and books that ‘don’t really have a place because they’re between genres’.
