At the 2000 press junket for The Gift, Reeves discussed his friendship and on-screen chemistry with Theron.
“We get along really well. We’re friends, we know each other and stuff, but there’s something that happens when we act together that’s very different than how we are when we are together in life. It’s the oddest thing. When I watch The Devil’s Advocate, I go ‘That’s a great couple. They rock. If I saw that couple I’d say they’re f*cking hot. They’re just hot’ and I felt that again on Sweet November that even though they’re such different characters that they should be together.”
In the romantic drama Sweet November from 2001, Theron played Sara Deever, the woman who inspires a transformation in Reeves’s character, Nelson Moss, a workaholic. The film received generally negative reviews, but audiences praised the undeniable chemistry between the two leads.
Fans continue to speculate and root for Reeves and Theron, even though neither actor has addressed the rumors of an off-screen romance between them.
Charlize Theron Has Feelings For Keanu Reeves
The 47-year-old actress is known for keeping her personal life under wraps, so fans were shocked when she announced her love on Instagram in 2020. Keanu Reeves, her co-star and longtime friend, turned 56 that year, and she wrote a post in his honor.
Charlize posted a vintage photo of her and The Matrix actor cuddling at an awards show on Instagram to express her admiration for him.
“I love this handsome human so much! Happy birthday, Keanu. You’re just the best!”
That adorable birthday message not only won over their fans but also started a discussion about the possibility of a reunion in one of their film series.
Despite the hopes of their fans, a real-life romance between them is highly unlikely, given that Keanu made his relationship with painter Alexandra Grant public last year. The duo have reportedly been dating for a few years. Despite the actor’s reputation for maintaining a tight lid on his private life, their relationship appears strong.
