Keanu Reeves may be best known for his roles on "Parenthood," "Bill &Ted," and "River's Edge," but it's his romantic life that's taking the hot seat.
Specifically, whether or not he ever had a relationship with "Speed" co-star Sandra Bullock.

In a recent interview in Esquire, Bullock explained that despite their scorching chemistry in the 1994 film, the two never pursued anything more than friendship.
“Nope,” she admitted. The article notes that Bullock maintained that "getting-together getting-together would have ruined a great friendship."
“But who knows?” she explained. “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."
She went on: "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.”
She explained that they did become fast friends, had the same publicist for a bit, and even shared a social circle. The actress also recalled a sweet tale from 1995 that implied they had a deeper connection than just sharing a publicist’s phone number.
After Bullock mentioned she never had champagne and truffles, the "John Wick" star showed up at her door a few days later with the treats in hand along with some flowers.
Keanu didn’t leave empty-handed, either. During their impromptu hang, Bullock painted Reeves’ nails, which the outlet notes might’ve been a surprise for the woman that Reeves was about to leave to meet for a date.
Reeves’ mysterious nature seems to go back awhile as Bullock commented on the sometimes confounding communication skills of the “Matrix” man.
“That’s what I mean that it drives you crazy,” Bullock said. “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.”
Bullock co-starred with Reeves again in "The Lake House" in 2006 and noted she would be happy to work with him again. In fact, she even has a pretty great elevator pitch.
“I would love nothing more than to do a comedy with Keanu before we die," she said. "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. Pissing the world off. There’s our movie.”
