    Sandra Bullock Says She And Keanu Reeves Never Dated Because It Could Have Ruined Their Friendship

    Esquire just released an interview with Keanu Reeves to promote The Matrix Resurrections.

    Esquire just released an interview with Keanu Reeves to promote The Matrix Resurrections. They also spoke with Keanu’s long-time Hollywood buddy Sandra Bullock, who starred with him in Speed (YAY) and The Lake House (NAY). Sandy confirms what we already knew: Keanu is one of the good ones. But she insists that she and Keanu never “got together” cuz she didn’t wanna ruin their friendship. Then she adds, “But who knows?” and points out that Keanu’s the type of guy you’d remain close with after a breakup. So the diametrical opposite of her cheating, Nazi-and-gun-lovin’ ex-husband, Jesse James.

    Sandra and Keanu (both 57 years old) met on the set of Speed (1994). They had lots of mutual friends and the same agent, and would sometimes get drinks together after Hollywood events. But Sandra maintains the booze never led to sex. via Esquire:

    They never got-together got-together—never. “Nope,” she says. She has always maintained that getting-together getting-together would have ruined a great friendship. “But who knows?” she says suddenly. “Keanu’s a guy who, I feel like, 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 and tip our hats and meet for a dinner and try to work together. And the longer time goes on, the more in awe I am of the human being. Would I have been able to say that if he had dumped me and made me angry? Probably not.”

    Sandra also shares a Keanu-anecdote from a year or so after Speed came out. They were hanging out, and Sandra happened to mention that she’d never had champagne and truffles. A few days later Sandra was chilling in her living room with a friend when she heard Keanu’s motorcycle ride up:

    He rang the doorbell, and Bullock opened the door to find him there with flowers, Champagne, and truffles. He said, “I just thought you might want to try Champagne and truffles, to see what it’s like.” He sat on the couch. Bullock poured some Champagne, and they opened the truffles. Keanu put his hands out, without a word, and Bullock painted his nails black, same as hers.

    He didn’t stay long. He had a date, in fact. He called his date, said he would be there soon, and left.

    Well, if I were Sandra, I’d have fallen head-over-heels right there and then. A man that listens to you? That gives you thoughtful gifts? And then immediately leaves you to take another woman out on the town? Sigh. There’s absolutely nothing sexier than that kind of oblivious unavailability.

    Earlier in the interview, Sandra says that Keanu is “a listener” and it drives people crazy. She says the champagne and truffles story is a perfect example of this:

    “That’s what I mean that it drives you crazy,” Bullock says. “When I first met him, I would spend as much time as I could filling a silence, just to feel comfortable. And the more I jibber-jabbered 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.”

    Bullock, who sometimes speaks in spectacular streaks, is quiet for a moment. Then she says, “How many people do you know like that?”

    Damn. Sounds like Sandra’s moment of silence was when she realized that she’d completely fucked up the trajectory of her life by not fucking Keanu. If only there was a special place that would take her back in time to fall in love with her soulmate. Some kind of… lake house?
