  • Sandra Bullock once told Keanu Reeves that she had never drank champagne and truffles.

  • Reeves then showed up at her house with items and flowers, she told Esquire for Reeve’s profile.

  • “I thought you might want to try the champagne and truffles to see what it’s like,” he said.

Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves met when they filmed the 1994 action movie “Speed” and developed a friendship that has lasted almost 30 years. In a new profile of Reeves posted by Esquire, Bullock recounted how her friend once showed up at her house with champagne and truffles so she could taste them for the first time.

Bullock said that during the early years of their friendship, a simple conversation about champagne and truffles emerged. She told Reeves that she had never eaten the beloved treats.

“Actually?” he said.

“No, I never had them,” said Bullock. For her, the conversation was nothing.

But a few days later, Reeves showed up at Bullock’s new home on his motorcycle, flowers, champagne, and truffles in hand.

“He said, ‘I 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,” Esquire reporter Ryan D’Agostino wrote on the profile. “Keanu spread his hands, not saying a word, and Bullock painted his nails black, just like hers.”

Bullock went on to demystify the delusion of Reeves, whom he described earlier in the interview as a “listener,” which he said “drives people crazy.”

“The more he babbled, the calmer he got,” said Bullock. “And I thought, ‘I don’t understand what’s going on! He’s looking at me with confused eyes. He’s quiet. Did I say something to offend him?’ And then a day or two later, he would come in with a note or a little package that said, ‘I thought about what you said.’

In 2018, Bullock said she had a crush on Reeves while filming “Speed,” but thought it wasn’t mutual. Later that year, Reeves confirmed that it was, “She obviously didn’t know I was in love with her either.”

Reeves, often praised for appearing particularly kind, is no stranger to giving sentimental gifts. He recently handed out personalized Rolex Submariner watches to all members of his four-man stunt team after finishing filming for his latest film, “John Wick: Chapter 4.”
