The lines between fiction and reality are often blurred, so it’s sometimes pretty difficult to tell one from another. That certainly happened on the set of 1992’s Dracula, starring Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves. Things got so peculiar that the Stranger Things actress believes she’s been married to her co-star for decades.
Ryder and Reeves dropped a couple of bombshells while promoting their upcoming rom-com Destination Wedding. It’s not the first movie starring the two ‘90s superstar that includes a confusing wedding sequence. They did a similar thing while playing a young couple in Bram Stoker’s Dracula. As a matter of fact, their wedding in that movie was so realistic that Ryder believes they’ve been married for the last 25 years.
“We actually got married in Dracula. No, I swear to god I think we’re married in real life. 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.” said Winona Ryder in an interview she did alongside Reeves.
The actor played along and proclaimed “Oh my gosh, we’re married.” after his co-star reminded him of the whole thing. Her story sounds like a perfect rom-com we’d definitely want to see, but we’ll have to settle for Destination Wedding in the meantime. This tale of two misanthropic wedding guests who develop a special connection will premiere on August 31.
