After the ‘Ocean’s 8’ star first confessed on ‘Ellen’ that she had a crush on the ‘John Wick’ actor when they were filming the 1994 movie, he admits that he actually had mutual feelings for her.
AceShowbiz – It turns out that Sandra Bullock‘s crush on her “Speed” co-star Keanu Reeves was mutual. Stopping by “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Friday, May 17 to promote his new movie “John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum“, the 54-year-old actor admitted that he actually also had a crush on Sandra.
Sandra first revealed about her feelings for Keanu when she appeared on the talk show last December. “I’m thinking of how sweet Keanu Reeves was, and how handsome he was. It was hard, it was hard for me to really be serious. He’d look at me and I’d [giggle],” she confessed.
But Sandra said they never dated. “There’s just something about me that I guess he didn’t like!” she shared her thought. Ellen weighed in, “He was probably intimidated,” but the Oscar-winning actress disagreed, saying, “Not at all. There’s nothing to intimidate.” She added, “But I think we’re probably friends for that long because we didn’t [date].”
The “Gravity” star also revealed Keanu’s important job while filming the movie with her. “My dress sort of kept flying up and I said, ‘Whatever you do, just keep my dress down,’ ” she recalled. “The whole stunt he just made sure my dress [stayed down]. It was very sweet.”
After Ellen showed Keanu a clip of Sandra’s interview, he said that he didn’t know about her crush. “She obviously didn’t know I had a crush on her either,” he admitted. Noting that they kept their relationship professional, he said, “We were working.”
Ellen pointed out that Keanu and Sandra’s real attraction to each other was probably the reason why Jack Traven and Annie’s chemistry was so strong in the movie. “It was nice to go to work, she’s such a wonderful person and a wonderful actress,” he went on sharing.
Ellen tried to fool “The Matrix” star by pretending to call Sandra to come out, while she wasn’t present in the studio, to see his reaction. “That would’ve been really nice,” Keanu said of the chance to meet Sandra again.
The host then reminded Keanu that he has no chance to date Sandra now because she has been in a relationship with another guy, Bryan Randall. “The window closed. You had a chance…,” the comedian pointed out.
Keanu and Sandra went to co-star again in 2006’s romantic drama movie “The Lake House“.
