From his in some of our favorite action thrillers, to his more dramatic in like Dracula, he’s a multi-talented , sure – but that’s not why the internet loves him so much. He’s also known for being one of the nicest (and least problematic) on the .

He rose to fame in a pretty unlikely franchise.

Bill & ’s Excellent Adventure (1989) told the of two slackers travelling through . It was so successful that it was followed by a sequel: Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey in 1991.

But Reeves has never stuck to just one genre.

In 1992, he starred in Gothic -romance, Bram Stoker’s Dracula – although his in this overblown movie has been pretty much universally panned.

Reeves is perhaps primarily known for his roles in action movies.

He starred in buddy-cop thriller, Point Break, in 1991, alongside Gary Busey and Patrick Swayze. It was a commercial smash and went on to garner a following.

He continued this trend in 1994’s Speed.

The suspenseful thriller told the tale of a rigged bus that would explode if it slowed down. Reeves starred alongside Sandra Bullock and Dennis Hopper, but has since shaded the by refusing to in the sequel. His ? “The movies I wanted to make were movies I wanted to see.” Ouch.

But there’s no doubting where Reeves gained most of his fame.

His role as in The  franchise is what really made into a household name. The movies are still of as touchstones within the genre.

But Reeves isn’t just an actor.

He’s also a talented and spent many years playing bass for alternative rock band, Dogstar, in the ’90s.

There are many strings to his bow.

He’s made a name for himself particularly because of his versatility, playing leading men, brooding heroes, and goofy losers with equal panache.

But aside from his professional achievements, Reeves hasn’t had such an easy life.

And that isn’t all.

It was recently revealed that Reeves gave all his profits from the sequel from  to the crew. And he didn’t even want for it, saying, “I’d rather didn’t know that. It was a private transaction. It was something I could afford to do, a worthwhile thing to do.”

Reeves has been fairly quiet on the acting scene in recent years.

But that’s all set to change in coming months as Reeves be starring in the third part of the John Wick franchise, Parabellum, out this month.

But, in spite of his fame, Reeves is known for being fairly private.

In the past, he was always less-than-eager to take part in interviews and was known by the press for being a little difficult to deal with.

Including what’s going on with him romantically.

Until , that is. Because last night, Keanu walked the red carpet at the ACMA + Film Gala, and he wasn’t alone.

Reeves made a public appearance with his -term girlfriend, Grant (who looked totally gorgeous, by the way).

Grant is a full-time visual .

Reeves and Grant have acutally collaborated on some creative projects together. This includes the 2011 “grown- book” Ode to Happiness, written by Reeves and with illustrations by Grant.

This is one of the cutest couples we’ve ever seen – and it seems the internet agrees. Images of the two being generally are cheering everybody up.
