Keanu Reeves was asked in an “Explain This” video for Esquire if he really married Winona Ryder.
A real priest was used in 1992’s “Dracula” for the wedding scene, Ryder said previously.
Reeves said the pair was still married “under the eyes of God.”
Francis Ford Coppola, who directed the movie, wanted the film to be as real as possible, even going so far as to hire a real priest for a scene where Reeves’ and Ryder’s characters got married.
During his appearance on Esquire’s “Explain This” series, Reeves was asked to explain whether he was married to Ryder in response to a 2018 article in which Ryder said they were.
“We did a whole take of a marriage ceremony with real priests,” Reeves replied. “Winona says we are. Coppola says we are. So I guess we’re married under the eyes of God.”
Ryder first said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly in 2018 that she and Reeves got married in “Dracula.”
“We actually got married in ‘Dracula.’ No, I swear to god I think we’re married in real life,” she told EW. “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.”
Ryder then reminded Reeves, who was also part of the interview, that they went through the entire ceremony, including the “I dos.”
Reeves responded to the news with, “Oh my gosh, we’re married.”
Neither actor has walked down the aisle since “Dracula.” Ryder has been in a relationship with the fashion designer Scott Mackinlay Hahn since 2011, and Reeves was last known to be dating the artist Alexandra Grant.
Esquire also did a profile on Reeves ahead of “The Matrix Resurrections,” where Reeves reprised his role as Neo. In the profile, Sandra Bullock said “The Matrix” actor once showed up at her house with Champagne and truffles after she mentioned she hadn’t tried them.
