Bullock would love to do a silly project with Reeves.
Keanu Reeves is often regarded by both his fans and other celebrities as one of the nicest guys in all of Hollywood. Those who have worked with him have had nothing but good things to say about the process, while those who were fortunate enough to bump into him in public have spread stories of his kindness and good nature. One celeb who has worked with Keanu on several occasions is Sandra Bullock, including The Matrix and The Lake House, and if she had it her way, they’d do at least one more picture together.
In an interview with Esquire, Bullock said she would “love nothing more than to do a comedy with Keanu before we both die.”
“He’s funny. We can be seventy-five—it’ll be even better then, like an old-people ‘Cocoon’ thing,” Bullock said. “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.”

While reminiscing about her time working with Reeves, Bullock recalled an especially thoughtful instance where she mentioned she had never tried champagne or truffles, and he left both for her at her trailer. “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.”
