Sandra Bullock has finally addressed the rumors of her and Keanu Reeves' romance to rest in her interview for Keanu Reeves’ cover story for Esquire.

During the interview, she said that Keanu Reeves is a listener, and it drives everyone crazy. The two met on the sets of "Speed" in 1994 and found out that they had mutual friends and the same publicist, but despite winding up at the same Hollywood event, Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves never got together because she believed that if they ended up together, that would have ruined their friendship.

Addressing the romance rumors, Sandra Bullock stated, "Nope." But who knows? " She added, "Keanu’s a guy who, I feel, 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. But we didn’t have to survive anything. We just get to grow up together on parallel roads, tip our hats, meet for dinner, and try to work together. And the longer time goes on, the more in awe I am of human beings. Would I have been able to say that if he had dumped me and made me angry? Probably not. "

Talking further about their friendship, Sandra Bullock mentioned that a year after "Speed," the two friends were hanging out and somehow the topic of Champagne and truffles came up, and Sandra Bullock said that she’d never had Champagne and truffles. A few days later, Sandra Bullock shared that she was sitting in the living room of the little house she had bought (her first house with a girlfriend) and they were painting their nails.

Suddenly, she heard an engine outside, which turned out to be Keanu Reeves’ motorcycle, and he rang the doorbell, and Bullock found him there with flowers, Champagne, and truffles. Sandra Bullock said that he stood there and said, "I just thought you might want to try Champagne and truffles, to see what it’s like." She invited him in, and he sat on the couch while Bullock poured some champagne, and they opened the truffles. The actress added that Keanu Reeves put his hands out, without a word, and Bullock painted his nails black, the same as hers.

The Bird Box actress added that Keanu Reeves had a date that same day and had called her up and said he’d be there soon. She further added in the interview that this is what she meant by "it drives you crazy." "When I first met him, I would spend as much time as I could filling the silence, just to feel comfortable. And the more I jibber-jabbed on, the quieter he would get. And I thought, "I don’t understand what’s happening!" He’s looking at me with eyes of confusion. He’s quiet. Did I say something to offend him? And then, a day or two later, he would arrive with a note or a little package, saying, "I thought about what you said." And he would have his response. "

Keanu Reeves shared that Sandra Bullock is a wonderful artist and a person, and he is aware that the two have great chemistry, and it would be really exciting and interesting to get a chance to perform with her again. In 2008, Sandra Bullock, during her interview with Ellen DeGeneres, shared that she had a crush on Keanu Reeves while they were filming 'Speed'.

The Academy Award-winning actress stated, "It was hard for me to, like, really be serious," Bullock explained at the time. "Like, he would look at me, and I'd be like [giggles]. And I'd have to try to, you know, [be serious]. " She also added that during a stunt scene, Keanu Reeves made sure that she was comfortable because her dress kept flying up. Sandra Bullock added, "My dress sort of kept flying up — I said, 'Whatever you do, just keep my dress down.' Through the whole stunt, he just made sure of my dress. He was very sweet.

Sandra Bullock was asked by host Ellen DeGeneres if they had ever dated, to which the actress replied that they had never dated and later joked that there was something about her that he probably did not like and was probably intimated by her.

In 2019, Keanu Reeves also appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres show and revealed that he also had a crush on Sandra Bullock. He further added, "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.

During her interview with Esquire, Sandra Bullock also addressed the part where the Matrix actor grieved for his close friend River, who passed away from a drug overdose at the age of 23. Sandra Bullock shared, "I watched how Keanu grieved. And oh, did he grieve for his friend? He’s very private, but he couldn’t hide that. And just to see that a man like that was able to grieve. And I remember thinking, "God, if that’s the tip of the iceberg of his depth, and his level of love and care for a friend—that just draws you in."

Talking to Keanu Reeves about River, the actor said, "It’s weird to speak about him in the past. I hated speaking about him in the past. So I almost always have to keep it present. He was a really special person, so original, unique, smart, talented, and fiercely creative. Thoughtful. Brave. And funny. And dark. And light. It was great to have known him. To: yeah, Inspirational, "Miss him."

Sandra Bullock had a thought when Keanu Reeves was asked if he had any special projects at the back of his mind, to which he replied that there were none, but he was trying to have a career. The actress said, "I would love nothing more than to do a comedy with Keanu before we die. Just laugh with him. He’s funny. We can be seventy-five, and it’ll be even better then, like an old-people Cocoon thing. We play two funny old people. A road trip Just put us in an RV as old people. It’ll be the bookend of Speed! We’ll just be driving really slowly. Pissing the world off, There’s our movie. "

Winona Ryder has known Keanu Reeves for 35 years, and during the interview shared that the actor is always ready to explore uncharted land in terms of both character and storytelling. The actress, who has starred with Keanu Reeves in four movies, added, "He understands that in telling the story, you have to allow that human mystery to live."
