Matthew McConaughey got a ‘stellar’ tribute from American Cinematheque last Tuesday (21). Sandra didn’t attended, but sent a taped message to him, including a poem she wrote:
A parade of McConaughey’s costars, past (Kate Hudson, Reese Witherspoon) and present (Jessica Chastain and Anne Hathaway from next month’s sci-fi epic “Interstellar”) introduced loosely themed clip packages of the 22 years he has spent acting. There were also videotaped well-wishers, including director Richard Linklater, who gave McConaughey his first signature role in “Dazed and Confused,” and Sandra Bullock, who recited a poem she wrote that boasted many memorable stanzas, including: “Thank you for your friendship, your loyalty and your trust / And thank you for reminding me it’s OK to have a smaller bust.” – LA Times
Keanu is promoting his new film John Wick and during an interview at Redditt AMA he was asked who was “the biggest movie star” he could count as a friend.
“Uh, let’s see,” he wrote, “The biggest movie star I’m friends with would be… uh… Sandra Bullock! Yeah, through the years we kinda get together, have a dinner, catch up, see how it’s going.”
Reeves and Bullock worked together on Speed back in 1984. During the actor’s Reddit AMA, he recalled a fun day of filming “when they let us drive down the street smashing through cars on the bus. And everyone started to scream, hehe, and then laugh when it was over, and it really bonded everyone together,” he wrote. “It was early on in the filming, yeah, but it was really fun to be smashing through cars!”
