OMG: Keanu Reeves Just Admitted He Had a Crush on ‘Speed’ Co-star Sandra Bullock

Last winter, Sandra Bullock admitted to Ellen DeGeneres that, yep, she totally had a crush on Keanu Reeves while they were filming the 1994 thriller Speed. (Honestly, who among us didn't have a crush on '90s Keanu?)

Well, now we know that the feeling was mutual—if never actually acted upon. Reeves stopped by Ellen's show this week and revealed that Sandy wasn't the only one sneaking glances.

“She obviously didn’t know I had a crush on her, either,” Reeves said. “It was nice to go to work. She’s such a wonderful person, wonderful actress.”

So why didn't anything happen between the two? Simple. “We were working,” Reeves said.

Professional? Sure. Disappointing? A little.

Back in December, Bullock revealed the difficulties of working alongside Reeves. “It was hard…it was really hard for me to be serious. He would look at me and I’d be like…[Giggles]” she told DeGeneres.
