Sandra Bullock is STILL embarrassed for signing on to star in ’97 flop Speed 2: Cruise Control

She became a household name after steering a bus filled with hostages and rigged with explosives by a deranged criminal to safety with the help of Keanu Reeves in the 1994 blockbuster Speed.

But Sandra Bullock admitted she was still embarrassed to have made the decision to sign on to star in the ’97 flop Speed ​​2: Cruise Control even more than two decades after the release of the film.

During an interview with TooFab to promote her latest adventure-seeking movie, The Lost City, where she stars alongside Daniel Radcliffe, Brad Pitt and Channing Tatum, Sandy revealed she came to terms with the failed sequel to her stellar box office flick a long time needle.

The actors were given the question: ‘If you could, name a project that you maybe were once embarrassed about, or maybe jaded or cynical, but came around to once you saw how it was embraced by fans.’

Bullock had no problem coming up with an answer, but noted very few people were in theater seats to see her on screen again as Annie, the spunky passenger who previously stepped up to help LAPD officer Jack (Reeves) drive a metro bus – and group of unknowing passengers – to safety while cruising through the streets of Los Angeles at a speed of at least 50 mph as to not set off explosives created by former bomb squad member Howard Payne (played by Dennis Hopper.)

‘You stumped me with the fans coming around later on,’ Bullock jokingly replied about her movie, which also starred Jason Patric, Willem Dafoe, Temuera Morrison and Glenn Plummer.

'I have one no one came around to and I'm still embarrassed I was in.  'It's called Speed ​​2. I've been very vocal about it.  Makes no sense.  Slow boat.  Slowly going towards an island '(seen with Jason Patric)

‘That’s one I wished I hadn’t done and no fans came around, that I know of, except for you,’ she joked when coaxed that at least a few people did actually see the movie.

The follow-up to the first film centered around Bullock’s character, Annie, unwinding on a Caribbean cruise with her cop-boyfriend Alex, only for the tropical trip to turn into chaos when the ship is commandeered by a criminal – a scene she knew all too well.

‘I feel like it had a kind of cult love as well,’ her co-star, Daniel Radcliffe, tried to offer as words of encouragement.

‘Very quiet. Like five people, ‘she said. ‘Him and the other four 12-year-olds who were watching the slow boat going towards the tiny island,’ she joked.

‘I think honestly, when I was on Harry Potter and dressed as a school boy, it didn’t feel like the coolest thing in the world at the time,’ Radcliffe said.

‘It’s been, honestly, later that I’ve looked back and gone, “That was incredibly cool,” and I do feel that now, for sure.’
