John Wick, The Matrix, Constantine, Speed... we all know that Keanu Reeves gives good action movie. But what we perhaps didn't know, is that on one of those movies (at least), he had a secret crush on his co-star, one Sandra Bullock.

The truth came out on when the Bill & Ted actor was interviewed by Ellen DeGeneres. She showed him a clip of Bullock chatting with hers about her time making Speed. At one point she admitted that she'd secretly been attracted to Reeves, but had never done anything about it.

When DeGeneres asked whether they had ever dated, Bullock laughed saying, "There was something about me I guess he just didn't like," When pressed she added, "I think we've been friends for that belong because we didn't."

When the clip ended a smiling Reeves looked a little sad, stating, "She obviously didn't know I had a crush on her either," which drove the show's crowd wild.

The chat show host, then pretended that she actually had Bullock backstage, and the audience whooped as Reeves turned around a little hopefully. Only to discover that it was just a joke of Ellen's part.

Bullock has been dating photographer Bryan Randall since 2015. She recently made her own action movie, albeit it a dystopian one, the Netflix film Birdbox.

Keanu Reeves was on the show to promote John Wick 3, the third instalment of his revenge trilogy. The films, which started out as a passion project for the actor, follow a retired assassin who comes out of retirement when some thugs (led by Game of Thrones' Alfie Allen) kill the puppy his dead wife gave him.

The films have brought Reeves back into the spotlight. Chapter 3 will see him joined by Halle Berry, with Ian McShane and Laurence Fishburne returning to the characters they played in the earlier instalments.

John Wick 3: Parabellum is in UK cinemas now.
