She may be taken by boyfriend Bryan Randall now, but in 1994, Sandra Bullock had the hots for Keanu Reeves (and we totally don’t blame her). The confession came about during her appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday, Dec. 20. “I think of how sweet Keanu was and how handsome he was,” the Bird Box star admitted.
Not only was the 54-year-old actress swooning at the hunky heartthrob while filming Speed back in the day, but Sandra also dished that working alongside Keanu was difficult. “It was hard for me to like, really be serious,” she explained of co-starring with the actor, also 54. “Like, he would look at me and I’d be like [giggles]. And I’d have to try to, you know [be serious].”
Even though emotions were flying high for Sandra, she admitted that The Matrix star was able to keep his composure the entire time, while also keeping her composure intact as well. “My dress sort of kept flying up,” the brunette beauty began explaining. “I said, ‘Whatever you do, just keep my dress down.’ The whole stunt he just made sure of my dress,” she gushed. “He was very sweet.”
But one thing is for sure, and it’s that Sandra never made a move on Keanu. “Never dated him,” she made clear when host Ellen DeGeneres asked if they ever got together. “There’s just something about me that I guess he didn’t like!” Sandra quipped as the 60-year-old TV host added, “He was probably intimated.” However, the Gravity star disagreed. “Not at all. There’s nothing to intimidate,” she explained. “But I think we’re probably friends for that long because we didn’t [date].”
Filming Speed wasn’t the last time that Keanu and Sandra would work together. The duo also co-starred alongside each other in the 2006 romantic drama The Lake House. However, two movies apparently just weren’t enough considering the John Wick actor dished to People in 2017 that he wanted to reunite with Sandra on the big screen.
“Oh my gosh, yeah I’ve been trying,” Keanu exclaimed. “I’ve been looking for [film projects] with Sandra — not with her, but for us.” He added, “I haven’t found anything yet. I’ve been trying!”
