Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves starred together in the 1992 Francis Ford Coppola film, Dracula, in which Reeves played lawyer Jonathan Harker who was engaged to Ryder’s character, Mina.
In the film, the pair get married and we just found out that Coppola hired a real-life Romanian priest for the scene.
In a recent interview with EW to promote their new film together, Destination Wedding, Ryder revealed some surprising news:
“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.”
Reeves laughed about it until Ryder reminded him that they went through the entire ceremony, including “I do’s”.
Ryder went on to paint a mental image, reminding Reeves that it was on Valentine’s Day (how romantic).
“Oh my gosh, we’re married.”

But luckily for the unsuspecting groom, religious marriages are not recognized in Romania.
But as far as Twitter is concerned, the 90s rom-com stars are married (and have always been in our hearts tbh).
If anyone needs me I’m going to be rewatching Winona and Keanu’s wedding

Now, I don’t know if it’s true, but I want it to be because the idea of Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves accidentally being married for 25 years and just not knowing about it is just the cutest fucking thing. https://t.co/9bMEKCLiJY

Sounds like a charming rom-com. Two actors meet, accidentally get married for real on a movie set and then fall in love.
Winona Ryder might have married Keanu Reeves for real on the set of “Dracula” https://t.co/2qotay3yMy
