Sandra Bullock Admits She Had A Huge Crush On Her ‘Speed’ Co-Star Keanu Reeves: ‘It Was Hard For Me’
In honor of the 25th anniversary of ‘Speed,’ Sandra Bullock revealed some juicy movie trivia: she had the hots for her co-star, Keanu Reeves! Get more details on the confession.
Sandra Bullock, 54, wasn’t immune to Keanu Reeve’s good looks while filming their 1994 hit, Speed! The actress, who was 29 at the time of the movie’s release, revealed her crush during her appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, which airs on Dec. 20! In light of the movie’s 25th anniversary, Sandra did some reminiscing on the ’90s action flick…particularly on Keanu’s face. “I think about how sweet Keanu Reeves was, and –” here, she lowered her voice to an awe-struck whisper — “how handsome he was.” Keanu’s charm was so hard to resist, she admitted to host Ellen DeGeneres that it was “hard” for her to be “really serious.” Totally relatable, Sandra.
“He would look at me and I’d be like –” here, Sandra emitted a girlish giggle. Ah, we’ve all been there. But the feelings were unrequited, at least according to Sandra’s memory! “Never dated him. I guess there was something about me, I guess he didn’t like,” Sandra insisted to Ellen, although the daytime host was doubtful about that claim. At least there was one upside to this strictly platonic relationship — watch the rest of the clip below to find out!
Sandra’s also throwing it back to her Speed days with her hair makeover! If you haven’t already noticed below, the Oscar-winner is back to sporting a bob like she did in 1994 (minus the bangs) after years of sporting long hair. “It’s funny. I feel like my hair was there to help me hide. And I hide behind my hair,” Sandra admitted to TODAY’S Hoda Kotb on Dec. 18. “And when I did cut it, I went, ‘Oh, OK, that’s me. I can be this person now.’ It’s all about the hair.” And we agree — thanks to her shorter ‘do, we could see her sexy shoulders poking out from her $3,752 gown at the premiere for her new film, Bird Box, in New York City on Dec. 18!
Don’t pity the actress, as it all worked out. Sandra has been in a loving relationship with photographer Bryan Randall since 2015!
