In a parallel dimension, Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock might have become a 90s item but in real life, and sadly for all the fans that shipped them, it is not the case here.

Keanu Reeves recently appeared in a very extensive interview with Esquire and while there he was asked about his relationship with Sandra Bullock after working together in two films, Speed in 1984 and Lake House in 2006.

The Matrix star was specifically asked if there was another chance for him to reunite with Sandra Bullock to which he answered that he really hopes so because she is such a wonderful artist and person and that not only that but he also thinks that they had good chemistry. It would be really exciting and interesting to get the chance to perform with her again.”

For the Esquire interview, some of his co-stars were questioned about him and while everyone really wanted to believe that he dated the actress when they filmed Speed, the sad part is that Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock never dated

"Nope," said Bullock  "But who knows? Keanu's a guy who, I feel like, is friends with every woman he's ever dated. I don't think there's anyone who has something horrible to say about him. So maybe we could have survived. I don't know." the actress added.

She added, "But we didn't have to survive anything. We just get to grow up together on parallel roads and tip our hats and meet for a dinner and try to work together. And the longer time goes on, the more in awe I am of the human being."

However, it appears that all the signs for them to be in a romantic relationship were there but they did not acknowledge them. In the interview with Esquire, Sandra Bullock reveals that at some point while filming speed she said that she had never tried champagne and truffles. 


The next thing that happened days later was that Keanu appeared at her door in his motorcycle with champagne and truffles. They drank together, had some chocolate and she even painted his nails black, just like hers were at the time.

Fortunately for the fans who are eager to believe otherwise, back in 2018, Sandra Bullock revealed during an interview with Ellen DeGeneres that she had a crush on Keanu, and honestly, who can blame her?


I think of how sweet Keanu Reeves was and how handsome he was," Bullock told Ellen DeGeneres, later admitting that it was really difficult for her to star alongside him because of the crush she had on him.

"It was hard for me to like, really be serious," the actress said. "Like, he would look at me and I'd be like giggling. And I'd have to try to, you know..." Sandra then added that "There's just something about me that I guess he didn't like"

The worst part came weeks later when Keannu Reeves himself also appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres show and the host asked him if he knew something about the actress and the crush she had on him. "No," Reeves answered. "She obviously didn't know I had a crush on her either. It was nice to go to work, she's such a wonderful person and a wonderful actress."
