Keanu Reeves "hated" co-star Gavin Rossdale when they played on-screen enemies in CONSTANTINE, according to the rocker.

The Bush frontman needed to create the right tension in order to convince cinema-goers the two characters really hate each other.

The 37-year-old recalls his pride when director Francis Lawrence was finally convinced by the bad feeling generated by the stars and announced to Rossdale: "I think Keanu really hates you."

Rossdale adds, "I'm pretty sure that was a compliment."
