Sandra Bullock explains why she's happy NOT to have dated Keanu Reeves

Sandra Bullock is thankful she never dated Keanu Reeves.

The 57-year-old actress values her friendship with her 'Speed' and 'The Lake House' co-star and though she thinks their bond could have "survived" a failed romance, as none of her pal's ex-girlfriends have anything "horrible" to say about him, she's glad they haven't had to go through the awkwardness of a break-up.

Asked if they ever dated, she told Esquire magazine: "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. 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."

The 'Blind Side' star recalled how on one occasion, she casually mentioned to Keanu that she had never had champagne and truffles - and a few days later, the 'John Wick' star hand-delivered the two items, along with some flowers.

He told her: "I just thought you might want to try champagne and truffles, to see what it's like."

Sandra said of her pal's attention to detail: "That's what I mean that it drives you crazy.

"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."

While the pair previously confessed to a mutual attraction when they first worked together, Keanu is happily dating artist Alexandra Grant and Sandra is in a relationship with Bryan Randall so nothing is likely to happen romantically between them now.

However, they do want to explore their chemistry on screen again.

Sandra said: "I would love nothing more than to do a comedy with Keanu before we die. Just laugh with him. He's funny. We can be 75 — it'll be even better then, like an old-people 'Cocoon' thing. We play two funny old people. A road trip. Just put us in an RV as old people. It'll be the bookend of Speed! We'll just be driving really slowly. P****** the world off. There's our movie."
