Continue reading to find out more about Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullocks’ dating history.
Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock
Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock first worked together in 1994 on the film Speed. The film was quite successful and earned $350.4 million with a $30 million budget and won two Academy Awards.
The film starred Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves and is about a bus with a bomb on it that would go off if the bus went under 50 miles per hour.
Though it is an action film, Reeves and Bullocks’ characters do have time to share a kiss at the end of the film after building up a romance throughout.
Fans seemed to notice that Reeves and Bullock had strong on-screen chemistry, thus starting the rumor that they were dating.
They were reunited in film twelve years later in 2006 in the film The Lake House. This film was quite different as it was a romantic drama with Reeves and Bullock playing each other’s love interests.
The story follows their characters corresponding through a mailbox in the lake house that they both owned at separate times.
The pair realize that they were separated by two years, but somehow still able to correspond via the mailbox, so they don’t actually meet until the end of the film.
Similar to Speed in that sense then that Reeves and Bullocks’ characters only kiss at the end of the film after building up a romance throughout.
After starring in two romantic roles together, rumors about the pair dating picked up. They have both since gone on the Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2019 and told Ellen that they had a crush on the other.
Sandra Bullock said it was hard for her to be serious on set with him because she would always just giggle. She says they didn’t date because: “There’s just something about me that I guess he didn’t like”.
When Keanu went on Ellen’s show a few months later, Ellen asked him about it. He said, “She obviously didn’t know I had a crush on her either. It was nice to go to work, she’s such a wonderful person and a wonderful actress.”
So had the two known about their mutual crush, they may have dated. Both are now in separate relationships though.
