- Sandra Bullock once told Keanu Reeves that she never had Champagne and truffles.
- Reeves then showed up at her home with both items and flowers, she told Esquire for Reeve’s profile.
- “I just thought you might want to try Champagne and truffles, to see what it’s like,” he said.
Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves met when they filmed the 1994 action film “Speed,” and developed a friendship that has lasted for almost 30 years. In a new profile of Reeves published by Esquire, Bullock recounted a story about how her longtime friend once showed up to her home with flowers, Champagne, and truffles so she could try them for the first time.
Bullock says during the earlier years of their friendship, a simple conversation about Champagne and truffles came up. Bullock divulged to Reeves that she never had the delicacies.
“Really?” he said.
“Nope, never had ’em,” Bullock said. To her, the conversation was nothing.
But, a few days later, Reeves showed up at Bullock’s new house on his motorcycle, with flowers, Champagne and truffles in hand.
“He said, ‘I just thought you might want to try Champagne and truffles, to see what it’s like,'” Bullock told Esquire.
“Bullock poured some Champagne, and they opened the truffles,” Equire reporter Ryan D’Agostino writes in the profile. “Keanu put his hands out, without a word, and Bullock painted his nails black, same as hers.”
Bullock went on to demystify the illusion of Reeves, who she described earlier in the interview as a “listener”– which in her words, “drives people crazy.”
“The more I jibber-jabbered on, the quieter he would get,” Bullock said. 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.'”
In 2o18 Bullock revealed she had a crush on Reeves, but thought it wasn’t mutual, until Reeves confirmed it was. “She obviously didn’t know I had a crush on her either,” he said.
Reeves, often praised for his kindness, is no stranger to gifting others with sentimental gifts. He recently gave each of his four-man stunt team personalized Rolex Submariner watches after wrapping up filming of his latest film, “John Wick: Chapter 4.”
