Angelina Jolie moved to the Los Feliz neighborhood in Los Angeles after she and Brad Pitt split nearly three years ago, and one of her neighbors happens to be Keanu Reeves’ mom, Patricia. Apparently, this is all it takes to spark the rumor that something is going on between Jolie and Reeves, but could there really be any truth to the story?
A major tabloid is claiming that Jolie has set her sights on the John Wick star so she can move on from her divorce from Pitt. Reeves is reportedly the first man Jolie’s been excited about since meeting the Once Upon a Time In Hollywood star back in 2004 on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith.

When Jolie and Patricia became neighbors, Jolie allegedly saw this as her chance to get close to Reeves.
“Keanu’s really close to his mom and visits her all the time,” a supposed insider told Star. “That’s how he came to meet Ange. They found they have a lot in common, and the attraction was definitely there.”
The source also claims that Reeves has met Jolie’s six children – Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne, and Knox – and he gets along well with them. And, Patricia is apparently on board with the idea of a relationship between her son and the Oscar-winning actress because she is ready for her 54-year-old son to settle down.
Despite all of this amazing knowledge from the “insider,” Reeves’ rep says that there is absolutely no truth to the report. On top of that, the rep says that they sent Star a denial of the report before they published it.
Reeves doesn’t really have time to date anyone because he has been so busy with his career. His new movie Toy Story 4 hits theaters on June 21st and he reportedly got really into his role of Duke Caboom. Reeves wanted to know everything he could about the character, asking Pixar producers what he was like and what he is afraid of. Producer Mark Nielsen says that Reeves “wanted to dig deep into the character,” and during lunch, he came up with the idea of Caboom’s love of posing.

“He climbed on a table and was striking poses in the middle of the atrium and we thought, that is Duke Caboom!” said Nielsen.
Fans can also see Keanu Reeves in John Wick 3, which is currently in theaters. And, he is set to start filming on the Bill & Ted movie later this year.
