It’s been nearly 30 years since Bram Stocker’s Dracula, the film directed by Francis Ford Coppola, arrived in cinemas; while only 3 years have passed since, during an interview, Keanu Reeves he began to suspect he was actually married to Winona Ryder on the film set.
Now, after thinking about it a bit, the actor opens up to be convinced that he is indeed married to Ryder… at least “before the eyes of God”.
Is Keanu Reeves really married to Winona Ryder?
This is the story.
During the filming of Dracula, the director of the film called a real Romanian priest to officiate the wedding on the set between Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves. The priest, at the behest of the director himself, held a complete wedding ceremony, complete with witnesses and the words “I do” uttered by the two actors.
Ryder reminded her colleague of the episode a few years ago while promoting the film Destination Wedding and, now, Keanu Reeves, interviewed by Esquire in view of the release of Matrix Resurrections, seems to be really convinced that he got married on the set of Dracula.
“We did the whole wedding ceremony, with real priests. Winona says we are (married). Coppola says we are. So I guess we are married… at least before God’s eyes. “
Now, I am not an expert and, of course, the whole “legal” part of marriage is missing (there are no signatures on a certificate) but, as the actor actually pointed out, someone up there might not be interested in a piece of paper. if the ceremony was completed and officiated by a real priest.
You say Reeves remembered to give Ryder something for the anniversary?
