Winona Ryder Thinks She Might Be Married to Keanu Reeves

Not really. But kind of!

Are Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves legally married? Well, let’s not clickbait around, the answer is no. But they might be married in the religious sense, and fast approaching their 27th anniversary. While promoting their upcoming romantic comedy, Destination Wedding, the nineties icons reflected on their previous onscreen pairing, in Francis Ford Coppola’s Bram Stoker’s Dracula. “We actually got married in Dracula. No, I swear to God, I think we’re married in real life,” joked Ryder. In the 1992 film, Reeves and Ryder’s characters get married, and while they may have been acting, the man marrying them wasn’t, exactly.

“In that scene, Francis [Ford Coppola] used a real Romanian priest,” Ryder told Entertainment Weekly. “We shot the master, and he did the whole thing. So I think we’re married.” Reeves didn’t quite remember the moment so well (perhaps he was just too caught up in the emotional performance?) and asked Ryder if they’d said yes. She reminded him that they did, and it happened on Valentine’s Day. Ugh, can you imagine if your secret husband of 25 years didn’t remember your anniversary, and that anniversary was Valentine’s Day?

“Oh, my gosh, we’re married,” Reeves finally admitted. Maybe now that they’ve been married in a movie, they’ll have to get divorced in a movie too.

Destination Wedding premieres August 31, but if you’d rather not wait till then to see the two of them together, Bram Stoker’s Dracula is available to rent on Amazon. That film is also screening tonight and tomorrow (August 19 and 20) at New York City’s Quad Cinema as part of its “Utterly Winona” Winona Ryder retrospective.
