Did Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves marry on the set of Bram Stoker’s Dracula?
August 20th, 2018 under Keanu Reeves, Winona Ryder. [ Comments: none ]


Back in the early ’90s, Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves filmed a wedding scene in Bram Stoker’s Dracula and turns out it might have been more real than fake.

It has been over 25 years since they made that movie and Ryder made a shocking confession to Entertainment Weekly and more importantly her husband, Keanu. What? She told the magazine, “We actually got married in Dracula. No, I swear to gd I think we’re married in real life.” Then she explained, “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.”

Reeves does not remember the Valentine’s Day, yes Valentine’s Day, nuptials, but eventually, he gave into the fact that he and Winona are Mr. & Mrs.

Good thing neither one of them ever got married or they would have a lot explaining to do to their new spouses. Plus, possibly the law.

No word if they will annul their marriage or stay married. Thankfully, they have a lot more press to do for their new movie Destination Wedding. With a movie title like that and this development, it will be hard not for the press to press them on this. Right?

Congrats to the couple?

UPDATE: The Guardian asked Francis Ford Coppola about the wedding and he confirmed they might be married. The director of the film said, “This is pretty authentic and I think very beautiful, because we actually did the ceremony and had the priest do the ceremony.” Then he added, “So in a sense, when we were all done, we realized that Keanu and Winona really are married as a result of this scene and this ceremony.”

Now that we know that they are married in the eyes of the Greek Orthodox Chuch, it will be interesting to see what happens next. I mean, do you stay married to the person you have unknowingly have been married to for 26 and half years or do you split up? If you think about it, they have been married longer than most of their friends combined. Now we know the secret to a long Hollywood marriage, secretly being married and not knowing about it.

Winona Ryder and Jeffrey Jones were reunited with the director of Beetlejuice at the Opening Party For Tim Burton At LACMA and they look as close as they did when they made one of my all-time favorite movies. Can you believe the movie directed by the 52 year old and starring the 39 year old actress and 64 year old actor came out 23 years ago? Ryder looks just like she did when the made the Classic film in 1987!
Here is a sceen from the flick that will make your Day-O better!!!

Keanu and Winona acting together again
June 26th, 2006 under Keanu Reeves, Robert Downey Jr., Winona Ryder. [ Comments: none ]

Keanu Reeves reunites with his Dracula co-star Winona Ryder in the upcoming SF adaptation A Scanner Darkly, and both told SCI FI Wire that they have very different memories of their first collaboration, in Francis Ford Coppola’s movie version of Bram Stoker’s vampire novel.

Reeves loved the 19th-century costumes the pair wore in the 1992 movie. "Are you kidding? Those costumes were fantastic," Reeves said in interviews to promote A Scanner Darkly.

Ryder disagreed. "Noooo!" she chimed in. She and the other actresses in Dracula complained at the time about the constricting corsets of the period costumes. Reminded of this, Reeves apologized. "That’s right," he said. "You were bound and gagged in the corset hell."

Ryder said: "I had that coat on my back with strings that pulled back and choked me the whole time." In Dracula, Ryder played Mina Murray opposite Reeves’ Jonathan Harker.

In their latest collaboration, a movie version of Philip K. Dick’s story, the actors play characters set in the future. Their live-action performances are painted over with animation in a technique that mirrors director Richard Linklater’s previous film, Waking Life.

Ryder said that she was thrilled to work with Reeves again and added that she was glad not to have the costumes they wore in Dracula. Reeves concurred. "Well, from my perspective, [the costumes] were fantastic," he said. "Winona suffered for her art in that. I didn’t have to suffer." A Scanner Darkly also stars Woody Harrelson, Robert Downey Jr. and Rory Cochrane and opens nationwide on July 7.
