We already know Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock aren’t dating, but that doesn’t stop us from hoping they would. Why? Because their relationship is much more of a frivolous and passing love affair.
Our perfect boyfriend material Keanu Reeves has been single for what seems like an eternity, but dating Sandra Bullock? we believe who is his ‘soul mate’ might have played a part in this. We believe he will find love. Keanu is sweet, beautiful, sometimes sad, and sometimes happy. Every fan really wants Reeves to find that someone special in his life. And a majority of them would find it even better if it is with Sandra Bullock.
The start of a relationship much more than frivolous romance
Twenty-five years ago, during the filming of Speed, the pair was introduced to each other as co-stars. The film remains on the all-time perfect action movies list, with quotable dialogues. But it’s remembered most in the mind for one important reason: the unmatchable chemistry of Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves.
The only difference is that Reeves and Bullock meet with a bomb on the bus. “Relationships that start under intense circumstances, they never last,” Bullock said at the end of the movie. But we have reasons to believe otherwise. Their relation was built under those intense set circumstances and has prolonged for more than 25 years.
Secret Soul Mates i.e. Primary Partners
Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock might not be dating. But the pair share extreme chemistry. Not just because both of them are exceptional actors. There is a rare sync in their roles – particularly impressive that they portrayed the tension, the love and longing for one another in a such a fast-paced movie.
In the movie when Keanu (Jack) loses faith, Bullock (Annie) picks him up. When she hits a homeless woman’s baby carriage, it’s Jack that calms her. They’re also super sexy together. When, at the very end, Annie pledges to base their fledgling relationship around sex rather than the intense situation they’ve barely gotten out alive from, you are made to agree to their want for each other.
The Real-Life Chemistry
In real life too we believe this is the case. Maybe it’s Sandra Bullock that has been with the lonely Keanu Reeves through thick and thin without dating. We are not saying sexually but in a pure Primary Partner way. They’re each other’s go-to person for tranquillity. It feels like no one knows Keanu better than Sandra does.
On the set of Speed, Reeves and Bullock were interested in one another. “It was hard for me to … really be serious,” Bullock confessed on The Ellen DeGeneres show last year. “He would look at me and I’d be like [giggles].” She added that they had never actually dated. “There’s just something about me that I guess he didn’t like…”
Only that wasn’t strictly true. “She obviously didn’t know I had a crush on her either,” Reeves told DeGeneres. “It was nice to go to work, she’s such a wonderful person and a wonderful actress.”
Reeves’s melancholy character is well-known through gloomy paparazzi pictures. His endearing lone ranger roles like John Wick and The Matrix’s Neo have cult fanbases. But don’t miss out on Sandra. Bullock has her own similar aura, too. It might be harder to spot, or at least harder to remember.
But it’s there, Bullock often projecting a quality that is very underdog and battle-worn. It surfaced right after Speed, Bullock choosing roles that saw her play lonely soul mates rather than bubbly. Bullock nails a kind of self-isolation, her characters choosing to take themselves out of the world. But the most striking part of this less appreciated skill of Bullock’s occurred when she collaborated with Reeves for the second time.
Second Chance at Love?
No one ever really talks about The Lake House. But the 2006 film, reunited the pair as two lonely souls finding one another, and a film that entirely hangs on our pre-existing desire for the pair to make out with each other. The pair feels like a lot in real life, two lonely souls looking out for their mates.
Interestingly, Reeves and Bullock only truly share one scene in the film. The movie solely depends on it. It is a scene captured in one single static shot, by the director giving way to the purity of the pair’s chemistry to flourish uninterrupted. Through eight minutes of dialogue, they finally share a kiss.
The perfect fit
As ordinary and approachable as they appear, certainly in comparison to how enormously rich and famous the pair are. They’re also adults who we know have survived public traumas and have emerged clear-headed if a little bruised.
They are two people with such intense chemistry and friendship. Both have lived similar public lives and reacted to their extreme fame with high degrees of charity and kind-heartedness. And at least at one point, a shared mutual attraction.
What fans want?
They have all the right reasons to be together but aren’t. We are happy with just the little possibility they might have of being an item. Wanting Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock to become a real-life couple, without question, will be the single greatest day of our lives.
It will provide a level of starry-eyed comfort to these chaotic relationships we hear of. And if they’re never planning on actually getting together, a third on-screen collaboration wouldn’t be the worst thing they could do for us.
If genuinely considered, this couple could redefine what selfless love and friendship actually mean. If Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock were dating. They would be the epitome of Hollywood soul mate couple and would be worshiped for their love story.
Anyhow, we wish them the best even if they plan to just remain primary partners, we’re here for it.
The world needs it.
