Last weekend, Keanu Reeves and Martha Higareda were photographed together at the Beverly Wilshire hotel in Los Angeles.

Reeves, the main character of the Matrix, 42, didn’t flinch when a paparazzo caught him on film with the 23-year-old Mexican actress.

In fact, there was no reason to do so, because found out that the link between the two is nothing more than a working relationship.

Some photo agencies, Keanu Reeves blogs and celebrity sites were reporting that the two are allegedly an item, emphasizing the age difference.

“It’s absolutely false that they’re having a relationship. It was the first time they’d met, and it was because they will be working together,” Reeves’ publicist, Cheryl Maisel told us.

Higareda is a celeb in Mexico for her roles in movies such as Niñas Mal and Amar Te Duele, and in novelas on the Azteca América.
