Winona Ryder Says She Accidentally Got Married To Keanu Reeves

If you think Rob McElhenney had it bad putting weight on for his role in It's Always Sunny he might be thanking his lucky stars knowing that he didn't do something more 'extreme'... like get married.

Saying that a marriage certificate is probably easier to shift than the 60lbs he put on.

Anyway, before I veer off. A few years ago Winona Ryder said that she may have actually wed Keanu Reeves in 1992's Dracula and they've never done anything about it since - at least not that we know of.

Speaking about her confusion, she said: "We actually got married in Dracula. No, I swear to God, I think we're married in real life."

She explained that during production of the film, director Francis Ford Coppola 'used a real Romanian priest' to preside over their character's wedding ceremony.

The ceremony was filmed from beginning to end. Ryder said: "We shot the master and he did the whole thing. So I think we're married."

Ryder made the revelation during an interview with Reeves where the pair were promoting 2018 film Destination Wedding.

It seems Reeves didn't have quite the same memory as her and when she asked him: "Don't you remember that? It was Valentine's Day," he eventually surrendered: "Oh my gosh, we're married."

In the 1992 adaptation of Bram Stoker's classic vampire novel, Ryder played Mina Harker, the vampire's main obsession, and Reeves played her fiancé.

Ryder revealed in an interview how the director, Francis Ford Coppola, tried to get Dracula co-star Keanu Reeves 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.
