Francis Ford Coppola is most revered for helming The Godfather, The Godfather: Part II, and Apocalypse Now. But if we’re being honest, your real favorite of his works is Bram Stroker’s Dracula. It dripped in style and blood. It gave us an uncomfortable crush on Gary Oldman as a hot vampire dandy. And apparently, it gave us the secret marriage of Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves.
When promoting their upcoming rom-com, Destination Wedding, Ryder dropped the bombshell that has children of the ’90s howling with envy and delight. In the movie, Ryder and Reeves played fiances Mina Murray and Jonathan Harker, who are wedded in a moody sequence. She told EW of the 1992 film shoot, on Valentine’s Day:
“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.”
Reeves response was perfection: “Oh my gosh, we’re married.”
And all of the above made Twitter go wild.
“winona ryder and keanu reeves were accidentally married in romania in 1992” is the headline i never knew i needed till now— Kelsey Hammer (@Kel_Hammer) August 18, 2018
I guess this means that the marriage ceremony with Keanu I held in my bedroom the summer of 1994 is null and void then (I mean, I know it was in my head, but still). https://t.co/6JJUlTstsv— Heather Wixson (@thehorrorchick) August 19, 2018
who among us would be mad if Keanu and Winona had been secretly married THIS WHOLE TIME— Carly Lane (@carlylane) August 19, 2018
Now, I don’t know if it’s true, but I want it to be because the idea of Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves accidentally being married for 25 years and just not knowing about it is just the cutest fucking thing. https://t.co/9bMEKCLiJY— Caleb Rhodus (@CalebRhodus) August 19, 2018

Some joyless fuckers are quick to point out Ryder is probably joking, and we shouldn’t get so excited, and take things celebs say during movie promotions so seriously. To them, we say SHUT YOUR SMUG FACE AND JUST LET US HAVE THIS!
