Enquirer: Keanu Reeves has been “comforting” Sandra Bullock post-split

In the latest “news about Sandra Bullock’s love life I wish were true,” the National Enquirer is reporting that her old Speed co-star and good friend Keanu Reeves has been “comforting” her. They don’t even imply that there’s a romance happening between Sandra and Keanu, and unlike the times she was spotted out with Ryan Reynolds a few months ago it doesn’t look like she’s in a friends with benefits relationship with Keanu. That’s a damn shame. We also heard this rumor a year ago, when it was reported that Sandra was “leaning on” her old buddy Keanu in the wake of her then-husband’s cheating scandal.

Sandra had been frantic over the news that her ex husband Jesse James wrote a tell-all book, “American Outlaw,” and only Keanu was able to ease her fears.

“Keanu was her rock,” a close pal of Sandra told The Enquirer.

As we reported, Sandra was consumed with fears that all her secrets would come spilling out under the guise of Jesse’s “memoir.”

“Keanu spoke to her for hours, night after night, listening to her worries, as she poured out her heard over her frustration and pain,” said the pal.

“And in the end Keanu gave Sandra the courage to move on and hold her head high. He basically told her Jesse’s cooked-up stories were just that. He soothingly reminded her that she really had nothing to fear because she was respected by everyone close to her including him. He assured Sandra he’d always be there for her…

“After Jesse’s cheating scandal erupted, Keanu became Sandra’s shoulder to cry on,” said the pal…

They’ve always professed a great mutual respect and affection for each other…

“The first person she turned to was Keanu, and he proved he was a true-blue friend by being there for her.”

[From The National Enquirer, print edition, May 9, 2011]

That’s a really sweet story and I hope it’s true. You know that Keanu’s gentle voice and kind words would help in a crisis, and it’s all so romantic sounding. (sigh)

I had the chance to read In Touch’s cover story Sandra Betrayed Again! and it’s just a rehash of a recent “poor me” blog entry that James penned that kind of bitterly negates his marriage to Sandra. (He’s since deleted it.) We were anticipating this from his memoir anyway, which is out tomorrow, May 3. I’m debating whether or not I should buy it as I want to report on some of the ridiculous things he says but I don’t want to support him in any way.

In Touch also has a column from James’ nastiest mistress (that we know of), Michelle “Bombshell” McGee. She comments on Jesse’s memoir and how he’s still trying to wound Sandra for dumping him after he slept with every skank in his path who ever worked a pole. According to Michelle Jesse told her he was frustrated having to share the bed with Sandra’s dogs, and claimed he hadn’t slept with Sandra in months. Isn’t that what cheating dudes always say? “My wife doesn’t understand me,” “We’re separated,” “We don’t sleep together.” We know that Jesse is a lying bastard who will use any excuse and I’m sure this memoir won’t be any different. At least Sandra has her millions, her sweet son, and some hot male companions to console herself with. If only she were more than just friends with lovely Keanu.

    Yay Keanu!

    “If only she were more than just friends with lovely Keanu.”

    Oooh, if only. They make the perfect couple.

  3. LamGerrard says:

    Sandra and Keanu would make a great couple but maybe there just aren’t romantic feelings between them? If so, they probably would have acted on them by now.

  4. Anna says:

    Would be nice but they are only friends.

    Keanu is a lonely wolf.

  5. mln76 says:

    They have really special chemistry. I love that movie The Lake House eventhough it’s really cheesy because of the way they relate onscreen. Too bad but I don’t think they are more than friends.

  6. brin says:

    Well, a lot of friendships turn into more, so there is still hope, I like them together, too!

  7. Zzzzzzzzz says:

    If only. Still holding out that their special friendship will blossom into evergreen romance. I’m such a sap for Keanu/Sandra.

  8. Miss Marie says:

    He is so yesterday. Her earning power will kill this relationship.

  9. kazoo says:

    i love keanu. love love love him.

  10. Janna says:

    He’s so gay. Still love him, though.

  11. Crash2GO2 says:

    I totally buy that he is a very good friend to her. He is also very very close to his sister. Some men actually know how to be ‘just friends’ with women and to truly respect and admire them for what they are.

  12. RHONYC says:

    ‘That’s a damn shame.’

    my eye! a FWB relay w/ neo is better than lonely nights vibratin’. jussayin. 😉

  13. Faye says:

    They’d make a good looking couple.

  14. the original bellaluna says:

    I wish it were true, too. And you must see Lake House!

  15. mln76 says:

    @the original bellaluna that movie is bar none the best cheesy chick flick of the last few years (besides the Notebook) I love the part at the party with the Paul Mccartney song.

  16. Missfit says:

    I had liked how they looked together in Speed. Well she needs a good man and that’s that. Keanu would look good with Sandra or Charlize.

  17. malachais says:

    I like Sandra with this hair color/cut. She looks genuinely happy in these pics.

  18. someone says:

    I wish this were true, I like them both, and they would make a really hot couple!!!!

  19. Ell says:

    When I first saw the pic I got excited. They’d be perfect for each other. Sandy would wipe away his sadness with her smile and Keanu would treat her in a way she deserves….sigh.

  20. MiMi says:

    Ive wanted them together since Speed. I’m sure theyre just friends. But one can hope.

  21. margaritachum says:

    i hope this is true cause it’s about damn time.
    they look so great and cute together.
    i love keanu and sandra so come on you crazy kids. give us what we’ve been waiting for over a decade.=)

  22. Lantana says:

    I hope this is true too. It’s nice to see an established hottie go for someone his own age.

  23. Missy says:

    I wish this were true. I respect them both a lot as individuals, and the number of celebrities I truly respect is very low. They both have hearts of gold.

  24. Hakura says:

    @Janna“He’s so gay. Still love him, though.”

    ….Why is everyone accused of being gay? That’s all I ever hear about actors these days, that they’re all locked in the closet, even if there’s nothing to prove it.

  25. mln76 says:

    Actually Keanu personally addressed the gay rumors on the cover of Advocate Magazine many years ago. I really think he would have been called out by the gay community for straight up lying .

  26. Gwen says:

    Joining the I-wish-they-were-together choir *sigh*

  27. original kate says:

    they would be a cute couple but i don’t get any chemistry at all, just friendship. her ex-husband just gets more and more douchetastic every time i hear anything about him.

  28. Ari says:

    I have never for one second thought Keanu was gay and I like pairing up every dude I see…TOGETHER lol…so…yeah I think they would be a fantastic couple. He could do by being a daddy to her baby boy and I think they would be very good for each other as well.

  29. Brittany says:

    Keanu was engaged to a woman and they had a stillborn baby girl born at 8 months… Then the fiancée died in an accident.
    The man has had a lot of pain. He probably is a really good friend to Sandra.

  30. nanster says:

    Keanu can console me anytime. He’s just too cute – check out “Point Break” sometime. He looked soooo fine in that movie!

  31. jill says:

    why would she be scared of her ex’s memoir if she has no skeletons lurking in her closet?

  32. Disbelieving says:

    Sandra was on Ellen talking about sharing the bed with the dogs. It was a big joke and she didn’t speak as if JJ (oohh, ick, ick even typing the name makes me cootified) minded at all.

    The day he pulled that blog, Kat Von D was tweeting about people needing to stop playing victim and take responsiblity for themselves. At first I thought SB’s people made him bring it down but after seeing her tweet I wondered if it were Kat.

    Kat is an idiot and JJ is a douche. And stop bashing SB. She has more than paid the price for her mistake.

  33. Louise says:

    Today must be a really slow news day for gossip. Most of the stories I’ve read today are non-stories and repeats of previous stories. They’ve been friends for 15+ years. Not sure how Keanu being supportive is newsworthy.

  34. mln76 says:

    @jill I am sure she isn’t scared of the memoir but probably devastated an humiliated by it. Also she probably is concerned for the kids involved not only little Louis but Sunny and JJ’s other kids also. I don’t think she’s a saint but I can’t help but feel really bad for her.

  35. Dana says:

    I like him better with Charlize.

  36. MsCatra says:

    @ CB – you could check it out from the library!

  37. Apple says:

    Maybe in 1994 but meh now. I think his lifestyle is better with Charlize. Two pot heads being dirty hipsters all over LA.

  38. beanie says:

    Good for them! They both have had enough bad luck in love..I hope it works out for them.

  39. wifeyskarsgard says:

    I always wished these two would end up togethor, their a perfect couple.

  40. Magsy says:

    If I missed it and he’s not gay would love to see those 2 together. I liked her with Benjamin Bratt too. What about her and George Clooney or does he always go younger? Or is he gay? What about Brad Pitt if he ever leaves AJ? Or maybe Jim Carrey? Hmmmm
