Wild child in secret dates

by Richard Wallace

SCREEN pin-up Keanu Reeves has fallen for former wild child Amanda de Cadenet, it was disclosed last night.

The 30-year-old star of Speed is besotted with the British-born beauty, friends revealed.

The couple have been secretly dating since blonde Amanda, 23, split from her husband, Duran Duran guitarist John Taylor.

They were snapped together for the first time at the weekend.

Stern-faced Amanda was at the wheel as they sped off in her Mercedes after the Los Angeles premiere of the play Four Dogs and a Bone.

Keanu, who has denied rumours that he is gay, first met the former presenter of TV's The Word in London last year.

Her marriage to Brummie-born Taylor was on the rocks, and she finally blamed the split on their 12-year age gap. Amanda - mum of three-year-old daughter Atlanta - lives near Keanu in the Hollywood Hills.

"They've kept their relationship quiet," said a pal.

"They don't normally attend premieres, but it looks as if they're ready to go public. Keanu is just mad about her."

Amanda has been linked to eligible men including her ex-husband's buddy Ashley Hamilton, 20, and Jack Nicholson.

She raised eyebrows with an ultra-friendly relationship with Courtney Love - widow of Nirvana's suicide singer Kurt Cobain.
