Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock is the celebrity OTP that was never meant to be … but is there a good reason for that ?! It works like this!
Ever since the duo starred in the 1994 film Velocity, rumors of an off-screen romance have run rampant among fans. Back on the film’s 25th anniversary, BOTH actors even confirmed that they smashed hard on the other! So why did not one just ask the other out? Or would they and they just not admit it ??
Esquire tried to get to the bottom of this during the interview The Matrix the lead role for their winter edition, which comes out on December 7th. While the 57-year-old talked about his former teammate, the 57-year-old tumbled over the “good chemistry” he and Sandra shared on stage. He even revealed that he hopes the two will get to work on another project in the future, sharing:
“I certainly hope so. She is such a wonderful artist and person. And you know, I think we have good chemistry. And it would be really exciting and interesting to have the chance to perform with her again.”
However, it’s all on display. Offscreen they are spoken for when Keanu was recently revealed to have been boyfriends Alexandra Grant for “several years”, and Sandra is paired with photographer Bryan Randall. But … WHY did they never join ??

The magazine reached out to Blind angle star to get her to tackle the old romance rumors. When asked if the two had ever been more than professional partners, they said Oscar The winner insisted once again that they were only ever friends and gave a firm “No.”
Why? For if and when they broke up, it would have ruined the friendship and the wonderful Hollywood relationship. Would not it? Sandy is not so sure:
“But who knows? Keanu is a guy who I feel is friends with every woman he has ever dated. I do not think there is anyone who has anything terrible to say about him. So maybe we could have survived. I do not know.”
But as it is, she would not take the risk – and to be careful paid off:
“But we did not have to survive anything. We’re just going to grow up together on parallel roads and tilt our hats and meet for dinner and try to work together. “
Oh! As big a guy as John Wick the star is, she’s convinced she would not have been able to see it past her despite, well, whatever made them break up.
“And the longer it takes, the more awe I have for man. Would I have been able to say that if he had dumped me and made me angry? Certainly not.”
LOLz! Good point, but fans can still dream! And who knows, maybe these two will find themselves on screen together again. They both sound very much into the idea! Lake House 2 anyone? Velocity… what are they wearing, 4??
