Keanu Reeves Reveals Secret Crush on Sandra Bullock During 'Speed'
Reeves admitted that he had a crush on Bullock when they filmed 'Speed' together during his appearance on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' on Friday.
Keanu Reeves revealed that he had romantic feelings for Sandra Bullock when the two filmed Speed together during his appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Friday.
After DeGeneres joked that Bullock's character was originally intended to be played by her in the 1994 thriller, the host shared a montage of clips from the film that included her playing Bullock's character.
DeGeneres later shared a clip of Bullock on the talk show in 2018. During the appearance, the actress admitted that she had a crush on Reeves while they filmed the movie. "It was hard for me to really be serious because he would look at me and I'd be like," she said before she began to giggle. She added that they never dated, so there must have been something about her "that he didn't like."
When the clip concluded, Reeves said that he didn't know that Bullock had a crush on him. "She obviously didn't know that I had a crush on her, either," he said.
He explained that he didn't reveal his crush to Bullock in an attempt to remain professional. "We were working," he said.
"It was nice to go to work," he continued about working with Bullock. "She's such a wonderful person."
DeGeneres cut off his thought when she shouted, "Sandy, come on out." While the audience believed that Bullock was actually at the studio, Reeves nervously sat in his seat. After he said he was nervous to turn around, DeGeneres said that she was just messing with him.
"It would have been really nice," he said about the possibility of reuniting with Bullock on the talk show.
