Sandra Bullock is leaning on old friends Keanu Reeves & Hugh Grant


It hasn’t even been a week since the news broke about Sandra Bullock’s husband being the biggest douche EVER, and already the tabloids are putting her together with various men. I’m taking these reports with an enormous grain of salt, because we really don’t know where Sandy is, what she’s doing, how she’s coping, or what her general state of mind is. I suspect her heartbreak is totally beyond just the “hand me the ice cream now, bitch” sense of betrayal. I suspect Sandra is nearly comatose from shock and despair. But, let’s think happy thoughts and imagine her drowning her sorrows in vodka-soaked bon-bons being fed to her by lithe, naked costars. Fetch me the Ben & Jerry’s, Keanu!

Yes, Keanu is one of the men that Sandra has been linked to in the past few days. No one is saying they’re hooking up, only that Sandra is “leaning” on him. The Sun reports that Sandra is “seeking advice from Keanu Reeves” and a source says, “ Keanu has always been close to Sandra and good friends with Jesse. He’s been helping both of them.” As for Keanu himself, Us Weekly cornered him at the Toyota event on Saturday:

Sandra Bullock’s longtime pal Keanu Reeves — who costarred with her in 1994’s Speed and 2006’s The Lake House — wishes the best for the Oscar-winning actress, 45, whose husband Jesse James allegedly had an 11-month affair with a tattoo model.

Reeves, 45, attended the 2010 Toyota Pro/Celebrity race training at the Willow Springs International Raceway in Rosemond, Calif., Saturday.

Asked if he has any well wishes for Bullock, 45, he told “Yes, of course, I mean for everyone.”

Asked if he’s reached out to her, he kept his mouth closed and walked off.

Earlier this week’s Bullock’s husband of nearly five years, James, 40, publicly apologized for causing the actress any embarrassment. She has reportedly moved out of the couple’s Southern California home and hasn’t been seen since the affair news broke.

Meanwhile, James has still been wearing his wedding ring.

I always liked Keanu and Sandra together. They seem to have a very sweet friendship, and many after some time passes, it could develop into something more. Keanu has had a lot of personal problems too – so he might be too much of a wounded bird for a fragile Sandra. Better she let me take him. But I’ll let her borrow him.

Meanwhile, The Mirror’s gossip guy claims that Hugh Grant and Sandra have been talking on the phone, and that Hugh offered to fly out to LA to comfort her. Hmm…

If I had to draw up a list of miserable celebs then Hugh Grant would be my gold-plated, runaway number one. I’ve had the misfortune to meet Mr Huge Grump (geddit?) on a number of occasions and he truly is one bad-tempered man.

So imagine my surprise when I was told that old Grump has a soft, gooey side after all.
For I can reveal that he has been nothing short of a “Godsend” to Oscar-winning pal Sandra Bullock after she discovered her husband Jesse James was cheating on her with an over tattooed “lady” by the name of Michelle McGee.

I hear Sandy has been having long phone conversations with Hugh while she decides what to do about her five-year-long marriage to the biker dude.

My source reveals: “Hugh has been a huge support to her. He’s always thought extremely highly of Sandra and was really upset to hear about her troubles. Sandra’s shell-shocked by what’s happened – especially so soon after everything seemed so perfect after winning an Oscar for The Blind Side.”

“She doesn’t know whether she wants to fight for her marriage or not, but Hugh’s been talking things through with her and he’s been great. Sandy and Hugh have a special connection – always have. And Hugh will do everything he can to help her out – he even offered to fly out.”

The pair became best friends on the set of their 2002 romantic comedy Two Weeks Notice and have remained in touch since. At the time, Hugh was asked if he could ever fall for his co-star and he said: “Oh God yes, definitely. It would be very, very easy.”

[From The Mirror]

Ugh, I hated that movie they did together. Two Weeks Notice – what a turd that was. But they were adorable on the press junket for that film from what I remember, and I could buy that they’re friends in real life. Long term though, I don’t think Hugh is a good bet for Sandra either. He seems to like women who are a bit more “sexpot” than Sandra. But still, it’s good to have a friend. I imagine Sandra’s got a lot of friends in Hollywood that would be more than happy to help her out.

    WHAT!!!!???? I loved two weeks notice!!! It was so great.

    I can’t see Sandra having any kind of relationship but I bet he would be good at making her forget for a few minutes, if you know what I mean….

  2. bite me says:

    Sandra has really nice hair

  3. canadianchick says:

    Meh-hard to believe. I hope she’s reaching out to trusted women and a shrink too. She will take a hit in popularity if she goes back to JJ, but I guess that’s her call. I’d bet there is more than one affair on his side. Why take advice from a man who cheated with a ho? Maybe she’s trying to get an answer to why JJ would do such a thing.

  4. kelbear says:

    ‘The Lake House’ is one of my favorite movies ever!!

  5. bellaluna says:

    Any woman who’s suffered that amount of betrayal by her husband is absolutely not thinking of any guy in her life in an amorous, dating kind of way. Trust me.

  6. ViktoryGin says:

    Hugh Grant? Seriously? Yeah, hook her up with a dude who has a penchant for prostitutes. That’s a step up.

  7. Kitten says:

    Clearly, God is punishing Sandy for wearing fur.

  8. Erin says:

    these reports are so funny! like she’s seriously already out looking for another guy after a betrayal like that and after being single for so long before getting married. sandra is hardly helpless…

  9. DoMaJoReMc says:

    @ bellaluna

    I totally agree with your statement. Having been hurt so many times, I can relate. The FURTHEST thing from the mind of a woman scorned by a man, is a man. And the furthest SHOULD be a man. She will need to have some kind of counseling, no matter how strong she is. This is such a blow to the heart as well as the psyche. I don’t care how strong-willed Sandra is, she is broken, and unfortunately it is not of her own doing. Can you imagine if all her cyber-girlfriends got together with her for support? I believe she would be better by tonight. There’s no doubt she is loved….

    I SO wish her well.

  10. grace says:

    @ Kitten

    if that’s real fur, I totally agree with you, and I’ll lose all respect I had for her.

  11. Isaidit says:

    Fur? Are you sure it’s not Dan Rather’s toupee?

  12. photo jojo says:

    I wish her well, but getting over this kind of hurt is really really difficult and takes way more time than you can imagine. Just when you think you’re better, you get sucked back in. Two steps forward, one step back. I hope she’s leaning on whomever she has, she’ll need it!

  13. SammyHammy says:

    “Dan Rather’s toupee”


  14. Cinderella says:

    The last thing on her mind right now is a romantic interest.

    She probably has a bazillion friends male and female that are there for her, but her mind must be numb.

    I hope she can get through this fast and leave that loser in the dust. There is nothing to fight for. I wouldn’t touch him with a 10 foot pole.

  15. tia says:

    sandra is probably with her sister. maybe keanu has talked to her since he completely shut down when asked about it. he does that when there is some truth to something or completely out of wack types of questions. and since the question wasn’t an out of wack question i would guess he has talked to her. Probably jesse too since they are/were friends.

  16. snapdragon says:

    i love sandra and keanu together. hugh is too much of a cheater for her, i think – remember divine brown?

  17. AbbeyRoad says:

    I agree with the people saying these guys are probably just being friends. These are people she spent a lot of time with and must have been close with, and they are friends who happen to be men. I’m sure she’s getting support from past female co-stars, too, it’s just not as interesting to hear about.

    And of course I’m completely on the outside — I don’t know her, or any of the people mentioned here, and she might be a completely different kind of person than the way she comes across from interviews, but that said, she REALLY doesn’t seem like she’d immediately start banging a former co-star. I like that Keanu Reeves didn’t really go into it. Highlights the difference between someone who really does care about the other person, and someone like Michael Lohan who’s just trying to capitalize on someone else’s problems.

  18. d says:

    I think she’s just friends with Hugh and he’s probably not only a good shoulder to lean on, I’m pretty sure he’s making her laugh a little bit…just because he’s not marriage material doesn’t mean he’s a crappy friend. He’s probably an awesome friend. Oh and Keanu is probably also a good friend. Anyone speculating about things romantic is maybe projecting? Pretty sure Sandra’s not in that frame of mind right now.

  19. Kim says:

    I’t s horrible that Sandy was humilated and betrayed but when you marry a man who previous mates are porn stars and strippers…I’m just saying.

  20. princess pea says:

    @ Kitten – Are you serious? And Hurricane Katrina was God’s way of punishing New Orleans for being so immoral, right?

  21. Raven says:

    These tabs have really hit rock bottom and it is heartening to see that most people see through the BS. Imagine working on a project with a co-worker from elsewhere and having a good time, getting to know said co-worker. Then the project ends and co-worker leaves. Years later your marriage comes apart at the seams in a very public way. Can you even imagine said co-worker calling you from Timbuktu so you can “lean” on him?

    The only thing I believe is that Sandra is with her family and people she can really trust. And by trust I mean no one is talking.

  22. Judy says:

    Loved The Lake House–would love to see her with Keanu. She deserves so much better than JJ.

  23. CeeCee12 says:

    Romance is most likely the very last thing on her mind.

  24. Kim says:

    Hugh probably is a good source because he will never marry and has cheated on past girlfriends so he prob. has good advice for Sandra and is letting her no it has nothing to do w/ her, people just cheat sometimes, etc.

  25. mollination says:

    @Dorothy – thank you!!!

    I’m really not a sucker for romcoms; I dislike all of the one’s my friends say are “good”, but I actually liked two weeks notice. haha

    *Maybe I was just in a depressed mood when I saw it, so I found it comforting?

  26. mystified says:

    I commend Keanu for ” keeping his mouth shut and walking off” when questioned. He is a true friend not prone to giving the media or anyone else anything to gossip about.
    I agree Sandra has been hurt and humilliated beyond belief.
    It’s easy for any of us say “get rid of Jesse” ” toss him in the gutter” “run as fast as you can” etc.etc.etc., because WE don’t love him..That’s the catch folks she loves the guy, and you can’t turn love off that fast. (Well maybe some of you can).
    Wheather Sandra chooses to try to make a go of the marriage or not, is her choice and her’s alone.
    No one should feel any animosity toward her no matter what her decision. She is the same person now, and will be the same person she was befor this all took place..
    No matter what the outcome, I wish her well….

  27. jz says:

    I love Hugh Grant and Keanu. Good Sandy has both to lean on. Each can be good listeners and they aren’t the type to lean in any direction… pretty neutral. Sandy will come to her own conclusions… But that Jesse, whoa, what a stealth operator. I wouldn’t be able to trust him for at least 11 months, that’s how long he aparently was distrustworthy, so I think it’s only fair for him to have to prove himself, as he said, “he brought this all on himself”.

  28. Mistral says:

    I love Keanu tooo. He seems so sweet.

  29. Maritza says:

    I’m sure there will be plenty of suitors trying to take care of Sandy now that she is so vulnerable. She must be torn to pieces, the only thing she is thinking now is weather she forgives Jesse or divorces him. The more she finds out about his indiscretions the harder it’ll be for her. I feel her pain.

  30. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    He really must have been stealthy. I can’t imagine that Keanu Reeves–being far from what you could call ‘Anglo-Saxon’–wouldn’t knowingly befriend someone with that kind of foulness in his heart. But then, why would JJ befriend him? I guess John Mayer just got his ‘Waiting to Exhale’ moment.

  31. paranel says:

    Sandra is my favorite actress and she is so genuine. Love her.

  32. noonoo says:

    Are you crazy? wo Weeks Notice was AWESOME.

  33. Aww I loved Speed. That was a fun movie. Hope Sandra is doing okay.

  34. docalion says:

    Hahahahaha… the reports are crazy.. i like sandra and keanu though…^_^

  35. Good2Go says:

    Cheating on your partner is a selfish action and JJ is no exception. It also shows a lack of confidence in oneself and its an action to stroke his own ego. Go Sandra and Keanu…your meant for each other.

  36. Bontle Mokoena sbk says:

    I love Sandra Keanu n they can make a nice couple.
