Keanu Reeves was asked in a “Explain This” video for Esquire if he actually married Winona Ryder.
In 1992’s “Dracula” a real priest was used for the wedding scene, Ryder previously said.
Reeves confirmed that the couple are still married “under the eyes of God.”
Keanu Reeves told Esquire that he is technically married “under God’s eyes” to Winona Ryder thanks to the wedding scene in 1992’s “Dracula.”
The couple were the stars of the film directed by Francis Ford Coppola, who wanted the film to be as real as possible, even going as far as hiring a real priest for a scene in which the characters of Reeves and Ryder get married.
During his appearance on Esquire’s “Explain This” series, Reeves was asked to explain whether he was actually married to Ryder in response to an article in 2018 in which Ryder said yes.
“We did a full shot of a marriage ceremony with real priests,” Reeves replied. “Winona says we are. Coppola says we are. So I guess we’re married in the eyes of God.”
Ryder first revealed in an interview with Entertainment Weekly in 2018 that she and Reeves were married in “Dracula.”
“We actually got married in ‘Dracula’. No, I swear to God I think we’re married in real life,” he told EW. “In that scene, Francis [Ford Coppola] used a real Romanian priest. We shot the teacher and he did it all. So I think we are married. “
Ryder then reminded Reeves, who was also part of the interview, that they went through the entire ceremony, including the “Yes.”
Reeves responded to the news with, “OMG, we’re married.”
None of the actors have walked down the aisle since “Dracula.” Ryder has been in a long-term relationship with fashion designer Scott Mackinlay Hahn since 2011 and it was last known that Reeves was dating Alexandra Grant, who is an artist.
Esquire also did a profile on Reeves before “The Matrix Resurrections”, where Reeves reprises his role as Neo. In the profile, Sandra Bullock said the “The Matrix” actor once showed up at her house with champagne and truffles after she mentioned that she hadn’t tried them.
