In case you missed it, Keanu Reeves went public with his first girlfriend in years this week. The actor was photographed on the red carpet with Alexandra Grant, a visual artist from LA, holding hands and being generally adorable.

Some fans mistook Alexandra Grant for actress Helen Mirren, not that anyone was complaining.

Helen Mirren currently stars in 'The Good Liar' opposite Ian McKellen. Being the class act she is, she didn't mind about the mix-up at all.

Speaking with Entertainment Tonight, the actress said: "I saw that [on Twitter].

"That was very flattering on me, you know, because she's obviously lovely."

"I do know Keanu very well," she continued. "He did a film with my husband [1997's 'The Devil's Advocate'] and he is just the most adorable, lovely person. So she's a lucky girl and I'm sure that he's a lucky boy."

Mirren and director Taylor Hackford are married 22 years.
