Actress Sandra Bullock, 57, doesn’t have many regrets in her career but one of the few she has is actually pretty funny.
Not long ago Bullock did an interview with co-star Daniel Radcliffe to discuss their new movie “The Lost City.” Bullock was asked if there were any movies she did that she got roped into but did it for the fans.
“I have one [that] no one came around to, and I’m still embarrassed I was in,” the actress quickly said. “It’s called ‘Speed 2.’ I’ve been very vocal about it. Makes no sense. Slow boat. Slowly going towards an island.”
“That’s one I wished I hadn’t done, and no fans came around that I know of, except for you,” Bullock told the interviewer, who insisted he loved watching the movie as a teenager.
“I feel like it had a kind of cult love as well,” Radcliffe chimed.
“Very quiet!” Bullock quipped. “Like five people. Him and the other four 12-year-olds who were watching the slow boat going towards the tiny island.”
The 1997 film was a flop, it told the story of Annie (Bullock) who was vacationing on a cruise with her boyfriend. However, the pair were forced to stop the cruise ship from crashing into an oil tanker.
Keanu Reeves who was the star with Bullock in the original 1994 movie did not return for the sequel as Jack Traven and was replaced with Jason Patric.
Reeves said that his decision not to do Speed 2 put him in “movie jail” for a decade.
“Well, I decided not to be in that,” he told GQ. “I loved working with Jan de Bont and Sandra, of course. It was just a situation in life where I got the script and I read the script and I was like, ‘Ugh.’ It was about a cruise ship, and I was thinking, ‘A bus, a cruise ship… Speed, bus, but then a cruise ship is even slower than a bus, and I was like, ‘I love you guys, but I just can’t do it.'”
