‘I guess we’re married under the eyes of God,’ John Wick actor said
For the 1992 film Bram Stoker’s Dracula, director Francis Ford Coppola led the pair in a wedding scene that Ryder has long claimed occurred for real and is legally binding.
“We actually got married in Dracula,” Ryder told Entertainment Weekly in 2018, adding: “No, I swear to God, I think we’re married in real life.
“In that scene, Francis [Ford Coppola] used a real Romanian priest,” the Stranger Things star continued. “We shot the master and he did the whole thing. So I think we’re married.”
Meanwhile, Coppola backed up her comments, telling The Guardian that same year: “In a sense when we were all done, we realised that Keanu and Winona really are married as a result of this scene and this ceremony.”
Now, Reeves has commented on the suggestion in a new video interview with Esquire.
“We did a whole take of a marriage ceremony with real priests,’ he said, stating: “Winona says we are. Coppola says we are. So I guess we’re married under the eyes of God.”
Reeves, 57, is currently dating visual artist Alexandra Grant. He was last seen on-screen with his Dracula co-star Ryder for the film Destination Wedding, which was released in 2017.
Ryder has been dating Scott Mackinlay Hahn since 2011.
Reeves will next be seen reprising the role of Neo in Lana Wachowski’s The Matrix Resurrections, which will be released on 24 December.
He will star in a fourth John Wick film in 2022, and recently cemented his status as one of the “nicest guys” in Hollywood with his choice of gift for the film’s stunt team when filming ended.
