Almost 25 years on since the release of award-winning Speed, America star Sandra Bullock admits she still has a crush on her co-star Keanu Reeves.
Speaking of their time filming the 1994 blockbuster together, the actress told The Ellen DeGeneres Show last week how “handsome” and “sweet” Keanu was to her when they worked side-by-side.
The 54-year-old actress, who has also starred in Oceans Eight and the recent Netflix hit Bird Box, said she found it “hard” to focus on set when Keanu with around.
“It was hard for me to, like, really be serious. He would look at me, and I would, like, [nervous laughter],” Sandra told the show’s host, Ellen DeGeneres.
And not only did Sandra find her co-star irresistible in the looks department, she also thinks he is a true gentleman.
Keanu even helped her with any wardrobe malfunctions during the film’s stunts.
“My dress sort of kept flying up…So, I said, ‘Whatever you do, just keep my dress down. The whole stunt, he just made sure my dress [was kept down]….It was very sweet,” Sandra said.
Sadly, Sandra said she never hit it off off-screen with Keanu, and joked that maybe he didn’t like something about her, while Ellen tried to convince her that wasn’t the case.
“”[I] never dated him. There was something about me I guess he didn’t like,” the actress laughed.
“He was probably intimidated,” Ellen quipped.
In the action thriller film, Canadian actor Keanu, 54, plays a young police officer named Jack who had to stop a bomb from exploding on a city bus, while Sandra plays a bus passenger named Annie, who takes the wheel after the bus driver is wounded.
