According to the Dracula star, Keanu Reeves is married to Winona Ryder “under the eyes of God.” The duo have been shipped many a times together and finally both have broken silence on the marriage rumors. During the filming of 1992 release, Dracula the co-stars may have tied the knot! Here’s what we know in details.
Keanu Reeves says it’s possible he’s actually married to Winona Ryder
According to Reeves, the marriage rumors are a possibility. Answering a question in a video for Esquire magazine which released on Monday, Nov. 22, Reeves explained while making 1992’s Dracula with Ryder the actors “did a whole take of a marriage ceremony with real priests.” Winona on the other hand, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly in 2018, shared that she’s pretty clear she’s married to Reeves. “We actually got married in Dracula,” “No, I swear to God, I think we’re married in real life,” Winona added. “In that scene, Francis (Ford Coppola) used a real Romanian priest,” the Stranger Things star stated. “We shot the master and he did the whole thing. So I think we’re married.”
Later that year, director, Francis Ford Coppola shared “In a sense when we were all done, we realized that Keanu and Winona really are married as a result of this scene and this ceremony,” to the Guardian. Bram Stocker’s Dracula had the scene with a “real Romanian priest.” The scene was shot on Valentine’s Day to which the 50 year-old actor joked, “Oh my gosh, we’re married.”
To the question, “Are you and Winona Ryder technically married?” to Reeves, 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.”
