Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves probably could’ve made it as a couple, but the actress confessed that she much prefers their longlasting friendship.
In an interview with Esquire, Sandra said that they have never been anything more than platonic friends.
When asked if they ever dated, she replied, “Nope. But who knows? 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.” Bullock and Reeves starred opposite one another in both 1994’s Speed and 2006’s The Lake House.
She added that she’s glad nothing romantic ever transpired because they’ve built a beautiful friendship together. “We didn’t have to survive anything,” she explained. “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.” When asked in the interview if he and Bullock will ever reunite on screen, Reeves stated, “I sure hope so.” He continued, “She’s such a wonderful artist and person. And, you know, I think we have good chemistry. And it would be really exciting and interesting to get the chance to perform with her again.”
