Keanu Reeves Dating Transgender Girlfriend Jamie Clayton; 'John Wick 2' News?
Despite supposedly being spotted out on a date with former Generation Um co-star Bojana Novakovic just a few weeks ago, word has it that Keanu Reeves is already head-over-heels for somebody new. According to the latest gossip news updates, the Matrix action icon is falling hard for his new transgender girlfriend, Jamie Clayton. Regardless of what is going on in the Point Blank star's personal life, Keanu Reeves's career is doing better than ever. In addition to presumably getting to further avenge the death of his wife in John Wick 2, Alex Winter--Reeves' sidekick in the Bill & Ted movies--recently revealed that they are finally close to starting work on the sequel to their characters' Bogus Journey.
Just last month, it looked to the Daily Mail like Reeves was trying to ignite a romantic spark with Jason Segal's ex-girlfriend, Bojana Novakovic. But rumor now has it that Neo has a new woman on his mind.
One source in the latest August 3 issue of Star magazine claims that ever since meeting transgender actress Jamie Clayton on the set of The Neon Demon, they haven't been able to get enough of each other:
"They're definitely smitten.
"The fact the Jamie's transgender doesn't mean a thing.
"Keanu likes her and respects her no matter what."
An eyewitness to their July 16 date at the Chateau Marmont told the tabloid that Keanu and Jamie looked every bit the loving couple on their night out:
"Jamie was acting all giddy on the way out of the restaurant when Keanu wrapped his arm around her lower back...and he went in for a kiss."
Not only has Keanu reportedly found love, the 50-year-old Hollywood icon has several major projects coming his way, as well.
Following the success of John Wick, directors Chad Stahelski and David Leitch, who have since been attached to Chris Pratt's Cowboy Ninja Viking, told Movies.com that it is not so much a question of getting the sequel greenlit as it is coming up with a plot that holds up a little bit better than the first film's:
"We're in development right now.
"It's the matter of story and how much you like the character. That's always the most important. If there's great action but you have a character that no one likes and doesn't have charisma, you're not going to watch it.
"So we want to make sure we have a story and a character that everybody loves, and then we'll dress it with action that we promise will be awesome."
According to Keanu's Bill & Ted bestie Alex Winter, they are equally close to getting started on the sequel to their Bogus Journey.
After years of trying to get their pet project made, the Battlestar Galactica actor told Yahoo! Movies that they were on the verge of getting started on production:
"We're really close. We're just about there.
"In Hollywood parlance, [that] means we'll either be shooting soon, or it's never going to happen.
"We are eager to stop talking about and actually shoot the d*mn thing."
Maybe they can even find a spot for Jamie on the new Bill & Ted movie, so Keanu will never have to be without her.© 2016 The Classical Art, All rights reserved. Do not reproduce without permission.
