To which he replied: "She obviously didn't know I had a crush on her either.”
Asked why they never dated, the ‘John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum' star replied: "We were working!”
The pair went on to star in 2006’s ‘The Lake House’, and Keanu gushed: "It was nice to go to work. She’s a wonderful person.”
Ellen told Keanu that the ‘Bird Box’ star - who has been dating photographer Bryan Randall since 2015 - is taken now so he has missed his chance.
The comedienne quipped: "I believe she's in a relationship now, the window closed."
Sandra had recalled how she couldn't keep her eyes off the "handsome" and "sweet” actor - who played the lead role of Los Angeles police officer Jack - and struggled to be "serious" during filming the intense flick.
She admitted: "I think about how sweet Keanu Reeves was and how handsome.
"It was really hard for me to be serious [during the filming of 'Speed']. He would look at me and I'd [giggle]."
When Ellen quizzed the 54-year-old actress on whether or not she got to date Keanu, she replied: "Never. I guess there was something about me that he didn't like.”
