Keanu Reeves confesses he had a crush on Sandra Bullock while fiming 'Speed' but didn't make a move as they 'were working'

Keanu Reeves isn't one to spills details about his personal life all too easily, but recently, during an appearance on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show,' the 'John Wick' star admitted he was rather fond of Sandra Bullock.

Reeves confessed he had a crush on the actress while they were filming 1994 hit 'Speed' together but never made a move because he wanted to keep it professional between them.

Ellen, however, had a surprise for him and played a video which probably made the actor wonder what could have been.

In the clip, which was filmed in December last year on her show, Bullock admitted to Ellen that she had feelings for Reeves as well and that it was hard to work alongside someone as good looking as him.

"It was hard..." she told the host, trying to stifle some nervous giggles. "It was really hard for me to be serious. He would look at me and I'd be like.."

When Ellen interjects with, "Did y'all get together? Did you date him?" Bullock answered, "Never dated him. There was just something about me I guess... he didn't like. But I think we're probably friends for that long... because we didn't..."

After playing the clip, Ellen jokingly prodded Reeves. "Did you know that she had a crush on you?" she asked, to which he replies, "No. She obviously didn't know that I had a crush on her, either."

The audience let out a loud cheer as the host exclaimed, "I can't believe you both had crushes on each other... and you were so scared!"

"We were working!" Reeves exclaimed. When Ellen tried to probe further and asked him if he had ever found himself in a romantic situation with someone he was starring in a movie with, the actor hinted that he had, but refused to go into further detail.

He also rubbished Bullock's suggestion that there was something about her he didn't like, telling Ellen, "She was nice to go work with. She's such a wonderful person, such a wonderful actress."


Ellen pointed out that, even if he wanted to, he couldn't date the 54-year-old actress anymore as she has been dating photographer Bryan Randall since 2015.

"I believe she's in a relationship now, the window closed," she said.
