Keanu Reeves Says He’s Been ‘Married’ To Winona Ryder For Almost 30 Years

Keanu Reeves gives his explanation of his marriage to Winona Ryder.


Wholesome celebrities exist in the form of Keanu Reeves, one of the most grounded men the world has ever seen. The Matrix star is unlike any other Hollywood celebrity, that’s for sure. He is known for his heart of gold and all those charity projects he funds. Where there is need of help, there is Keanu. This man is so humble that he opts for a simple life, like that of the ordinary people. 

One of the actresses who had the pleasure to stare alongside Keanu is Winona Ryder.

Speaking of her, Keanu said that the two have been ‘married’ for almost 30 years. Of course, their wedding ceremony wasn’t an ordinary one because it didn’t take place in real life but on the set of the film Dracula.

“We did a whole take of a marriage ceremony with real priests,” Keanu explained. He was then asked whether they are still married to this day, and he responded, “Winona says we are. Coppola says we are. So I guess we’re married, under the eyes of God.”

Francis Ford Coppola, the director of Dracula, filmed back in 1992, believed that they key to an iconic scene was the authenticity and that is the reason why he filmed the on-screen wedding between Keanu and Winona in a real church, with real priests. “Having the real wedding ceremony as it might be in that religion [Greek Orthodox Christianity] would be beautiful,” he said.

He then added that the marriage scene could be more legit than the actors initially thought.

This is pretty authentic and I think very beautiful, because we actually did the ceremony and had the priest do the ceremony,” Coppola said. “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.”

Asked about their ‘marriage’ by Entertainment Weekly during a 2018 interview, Winona said how she believed God himself thought they were indeed married because of the vows they took with the real priest. “So I think we’re married,” she said. “No, I swear to God, I think we’re married in real life. In that scene, Francis used a real Romanian priest. We shot the master and he did the whole thing. So, I think we’re married.”

Allegedly, both Keanu and Winona had feelings for each other back in the day but they were bot unaware of what the other person felt and as a result, neither of them acted on those feelings.

Keanu and Winona starred alongside one another in a number of movies. Besides Dracula, they also appeared together in Destination wedding, A Scanner Darkly, and The Private Lives of Pippa Lee.

Another actress who is a good friends of Keanu is Sandra Bullock. The two were co-stars in the 1994 hit Speed.

Keanu’s a guy who, I feel like, is friends with every woman he’s ever dated,” said Bullock.

I don’t think there’s anyone who has something horrible to say about him. So maybe we could have survived. I don’t know. But we didn’t have to survive anything.”

She added: “We just get to grow up together on parallel roads and tip our hats and meet for a dinner and try to work together. And the longer time goes on, the more in awe I am of the human being.

“Would I have been able to say that if he had dumped me and made me angry? Probably not.”
