Keanu Reeves says he’s been ‘married’ to Winona Ryder for 30 years.

Reeves, 59, is an actor, producer, and musician who has starred in numerous high-profile films, including the Matrix series, Speed, and John Wick.

The Exposed star has become known for his unique style of acting and his ability to take on complex roles in a variety of genres.

Ryder, 52, is best known for her roles in the likes of BeetlejuiceEdward Scissorhands and Age of Innocence.

And it turns out that the pair may have been accidentally married for the past 30 years.

Ryder and Reeves have worked together on several occasions, including Dracula, A Scanner Darkly, The Private Lives of Pippa Lee, and Destination Wedding.

While both stars have had relationships over the years, neither has ever been married.

Ryder dated Johnny Depp and Scott Mackinlay-Hahn, while Reeves was engaged to Jennifer Syme, who tragically died in a car accident in 2001.

Reeves is currently in a relationship with visual artist Alexandra Grant.

Despite the speculation, neither Ryder nor Reeves have commented on the possibility of a romantic relationship. However, they have both spoken about their admiration for each other over the years.

In an interview with People, Ryder said that Reeves is ‘one of the most special people’ she has ever met, while Reeves has described Ryder as ‘a remarkable human being’.

In fact, the pair have also admitted that they’ve had ‘big, healthy’ crushes on one another over the years too.

But it turns out, the pair may actually be more than just good friends…

This is thanks to a chance moment on the set of the 1992 movie Bram Stoker’s Dracula.

According to Reeves, during the filming of a marriage scene, they used real priests, rather than just a stage wedding.

The director of the film, Francis Ford Coppola, has weighed in on the issue, saying that he believes they are married for real.

The revelation was made during an interview Reeves gave for Esquire.

“We did a whole take of a marriage ceremony with real priests,” he revealed. “Winona says we are. Coppola says we are. So, I guess we’re married under the eyes of God.”

Ryder said: “We actually got married in Dracula. 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.”

Ryder has previously mentioned the possibility of their marriage when the two were working on the film Destination Wedding in 2018.

The Girl, Interrupted actress says that the scene in question was shot with a real Romanian priest, so she believes they are married.

The accidental marriage may be a fun anecdote for fans of the actor and actress, but it’s not clear whether it actually has any legal standing.

The scene was filmed for a movie, and so it’s unlikely that any legal paperwork was filed.

While it’s unlikely that the accidental marriage will have any legal ramifications, it’s clear that it has captured plenty of imagination.

For now, at least, it seems that Reeves and Ryder will continue to work together and support each other’s careers, whether or not they are actually married.
