Keanu Reeves Sets Record Straight About Accidental 'Marriage' To Winona Ryder

Keanu Reeves has weighed in on claims that he and Winona Ryder ended up getting hitched in the 1990s while filming Dracula - and it turns out that he reckons the pair are married.

The two actors starred in the 1992 Francis Ford Coppola flick, but it's since been revealed that a scene in which they got married was shot using a real Romanian priest, prompting Winona to believe the pair are actually husband and wife.

Now, in a recent video interview with Esquire, Keanu spoke about the wedding and attempted to set the record straight.

When presented with an article about Winona's claims, he replied: "We did a whole take of a marriage ceremony with real priests.

"Winona says we are. Coppola says we are. So I guess we're married under the eyes of God."

God and Winona Ryder - it doesn't get more official than that.

Although Keanu was recently presented with the rumours, Winona mentioned their nuptials all the way back in 2018.

She told Entertainment Weekly: "We actually got married in Dracula. No, I swear to God I think we're married in real life.

"In that scene, Francis [Ford Coppola] used a real Romanian priest. We shot the master and he did the whole thing. So I think we're married."

Back then, the special moment appeared to have slipped her co-star's mind, with her prompting him: "Don't you remember that? It was Valentine's Day."

The penny finally dropped and Keanu admitted: "Oh my gosh, we're married."

Whether the pair are legally married or otherwise, Winona has previously spoken about what a good egg Keanu is while revealing an incident in which director Coppola, tried to get her Dracula co-star to make her cry by hurling abuse at her - which the actor refused to do.

Speaking to The Sunday Times, Ryder recalled a scene where Dracula - played by Gary Oldman - transformed into a pile of rats.

Meanwhile, behind the camera, director Coppola repeatedly shouted insults at her and attempted to get the film's male cast to follow suit - so that her crying would be believable.

"To put it in context, I'm supposed to be crying," Ryder explained to the newspaper.

"Literally, Richard R Grant, Anthony Hopkins, Keanu... Francis was trying to get all of them to yell things that would make me cry. But Keanu wouldn't, Anthony wouldn't... It just didn't work. I was, like, really? It kind of did the opposite."

Ryder said in the interview that, despite the incident, she and Coppola are 'good now', adding that the incident really solidified her friendship with Reeves.
