  • Sandra Bullock joked to Insider that she cleans “Speed” costar Keanu Reeves’ home “once a week.”
  • Bullock and Reeves starred in the 1994 film together, and later revealed they had crushes on one another.
  • “Other than cleaning his house on Thursdays, I see him maybe once or twice a year,” she said.

Sandra Bullock revealed in a red carpet interview with Insider that she sees her “Speed” costar Keanu Reeves only a handful of times per year.

When asked about her enduring friendship with the “Matrix” star during the SXSW premiere of her new film “The Lost City” in Austin, Texas on Saturday, Bullock joked that she’s responsible for tidying up Reeves’ home once a week.

“I clean his house every Thursday. It’s sort of a thing that we had. I lost a bet when we did ‘Speed,’ and I said, ‘Well, if it’s not true, I’ll clean your house,'” the “Blind Side” actress quipped. “I think I’ve done a pretty good job. I mean, I stay out of certain rooms, but, I respect it.”

“Other than cleaning his house on Thursdays, I see him maybe once or twice a year,” Bullock told Insider.

Bullock and Reeves have previously both spoken about the crushes they had on one another while filming “Speed.”

In November, Bullock revealed in an interview with Esquire that Reeves once showed up at her home with Champagne and truffles so she could try them, after she mentioned she’d never enjoyed the treats at the same time.

“He said, ‘I just thought you might want to try Champagne and truffles, to see what it’s like,'” Bullock told Esquire in an interview.

Back in 2019, Reeves said that he had a crush Bullock while shooting, but didn’t realize she liked him back. The actor went on to say that they didn’t date because “we were working.”

Reeves’ admission came after Bullock admitted in 2018 that she had a crush on him while filming the 1994 thriller — but also didn’t he had realize feelings for her.

In retrospect, Bullock told Esquire in the November interview that she was glad she and Reeves had never dated because it might have ruined their friendship if things had ended badly between them.

“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,” Bullock said. “So maybe we could have survived. I don’t know.”

She continued: “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 added.
