Anne Heche has revealed that she turned down Sandra Bullock's role in Speed.

The actress told Movieline that she rejected the hit action movie because she had "ridiculous" ideas about which parts to take earlier in her career.

"[I had] dumb opinions, like, 'I can’t go in on Speed.' You know? What?! Who in a million years... How or why any opinion in my brain would get formed around certain ideas. 'No, no, I can't do that... I couldn’t possibly.'"

She continued: "It was completely ridiculous opinions that I only had because of whatever I was thinking that day. Just unguided. I was an unguided soul. I hopefully have matured and become more guided."

Heche noted that she would rather have done a "50-seat play for 20 people a night" in the '90s because she would have viewed it as a more artistically rewarding career movie.

However, the 41-year-old confessed that she would have no hesitation in signing up for another Speed movie if the franchise were to be revived.

"Well, if they do a third Speed, I’m available. Sandra? There’s no way; she’s Woman of the Year. I’m free, if someone wants to write it, I’ll do it," she said.
