Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves Might Have Accidentally Gotten Married in 1992
Bram Stoker's Dracula offered the world some of the worst English accents in the history of film, but the 1992 movie may have also given us something else—the accidental wedding of its stars, Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder.
In what sounds suspiciously like come-t0-life fanfic by a '90s-obsessed middle school goth, Ryder told Entertainment Weekly that the marriage of her and Reeves's characters in the Francis Ford Coppola-directed film may have wed the actors in real life.
"In that scene, Francis used a real Romanian priest," Ryder told EW in a joint interview with Reeves. "We shot the master and he did the whole thing. So I think we’re married."
Reeves took the news in stride and joked, “It’s lovely to see you again.” But Ryder reminded him that they went through the entire ceremony and said their “I dos.”
When Reeves asked, “We said yes?” Ryder responded, “Don’t you remember that? It was on Valentine’s Day.” This left Reeves no choice but to conclude, “Oh my gosh, we’re married.”
The pair was interviewed to promote their upcoming film, Destination Wedding, which looks like little more than an excellent excuse to take money from the willing hands of '90s nostalgics.
