Keanu Reeves Believes He’s Married to Winona Ryder ‘Under The Eyes of God’!
Well, most actors get married on-screen and end up having romances off-screen as well. And they turn out to be one of the most iconic couples in Hollywood, just look at Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively who met on the set of ‘Green Lantern’. But there is one couple that technically isn’t a couple but they both believe they’re married! Yes, Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder got married in a movie ‘Dracula’ in 1992. Folks, it wasn’t a fake wedding for them. It turns out it was very real and they both believe they are still married to this day!
What?! How?! When?!
That’s what we were thinking when we heard the news! So, let’s get into it.
In 1992, Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves starred alongside each other in the movie ‘Dracula’. Keanu played Dracula’s brother, Jonathan Harker who’s come to steal Dracula’s fiancée Mina Murray. Mina was played by Winona Ryder.
Suffice to say, Jonathan ends up succeeding in his goals! So much so that Keanu and Winona’s characters end up marrying each other.
And a few years ago in August 2018, Winona Ryder revealed that the director of the movie Francis Ford Coppola used an actual Romanian priest to officiate the wedding of Jonathan and Mina. The wedding ceremony was properly done, from the start to the finish. Hence, Winona Ryder joked that she and Keanu Reeves might actually be married to each other in real life as well:
“We actually got married in Dracula. No, I swear to God, I think we’re married in real life.”
Well, Keanu Reeves is perfectly fine with being married to Winona Ryder it seems
Esquire recently asked Keanu Reeves what he thinks about Winona Ryder believing they’re married. To this, 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.”
Not only that but Keanu Reeves shared in an interview in 2019 that Winona Ryder still calls him ‘husband’ jokingly sometimes.
“Once in a while, I will get a text: ‘Hello, husband,’. “I didn’t really believe her, and then Francis Ford Coppola, the director of Dracula, contacted Winona and said publicly that, yeah, that really happened, the priest did a full ceremony and Winona and I got married.”
It’s definitely worth noting that the two always have kind words to say about each other. Keanu Reeves also called Winona Ryder ‘lovely person’ and a ‘talented actress’. Moreover, just like the fans, he also thinks he and Winona would make a great couple!
They definitely have great chemistry together and work well on the screen together. After the movie ‘Dracula’, Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves have starred in multiple other movies such as ‘A Scanner Darkly’, ‘The Destination Wedding’ and ‘The Private Lives of Pippa Lee’.
Who knows? Maybe, they’re secretly dating already. Either way, Reeves and Ryder might be two of the most wholesome celebrities in Hollywood. If they end up dating, no one would have a problem with it! Plus, it would be easier for them in the relationship considering they’re already married.
