Keanu Reeves: Winona Ryder Calls Me ‘Husband’

<a href="https://www.usmagazine.com/celebrities/winona-ryder/">Winona Ryder</a> is really committing to her quasi-marriage to <a href="https://www.usmagazine.com/celebrities/keanu-reeves/">Keanu Reeves</a>, even calling the Matrix alum her husband! <a href="https://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-news/news/costars-reunited-2013279/"> Costars Reunited! </a> “Once in a while, I’ll get a text: ‘Hello, husband,’” Reeves, 54, said of Ryder, 47, during his appearance on <a href="https://www.usmagazine.com/shows/the-talk/">The Talk</a> on Monday, January 7. The frequent costars are just friends in real life, but Ryder revealed last year that <a href="https://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-news/news/winona-ryder-thinks-she-and-keanu-reevesactually-got-married-for-dracula/">an actual priest married the pair</a> for their onscreen wedding in the 1992 film Bram Stoker’s Dracula. “No, I swear to god, I think we’re married in real life,” she told <a href="https://ew.com/movies/2018/08/18/winona-ryder-keanu-reeves-married-dracula/">Entertainment Weekly</a> at the time. “In that scene, [director] Francis [Ford Coppola] used a real Romanian priest. We shot the master and he did the whole thing. So I think we’re married.” “We said yes?” Reeves responded in the same interview. “Oh my gosh, we’re married.” <a href="https://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-news/news/winona-ryders-most-iconic-movie-roles-20142210/"> Winona Ryder’s Most Iconic Movie Roles </a> Coppola later <a href="https://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-news/news/francis-ford-coppola-keanu-reeves-and-winona-ryder-really-are-married/">confirmed the anecdote</a>, telling <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/film/2018/aug/20/francis-ford-coppola-winona-ryder-keanu-reeves-married-dracula">The Guardian</a> he realized that “having the real wedding ceremony as it might be in that religion [Greek Orthodox Christianity] would be beautiful.” During the filming of the gothic horror film, the director, now 79, recruited an actual priest and filmed the scene in a Greek Orthodox church in Los Angeles. “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,” he added. On Monday’s episode of The Talk, the Replicas actor revealed he was still skeptical after the EW interview: “I didn’t really believe her. And [Coppola] contacted Winona and said publicly that, yeah, that actually happened. The priest did a full ceremony and Winona and I got married … Yeah, it’s awesome.” <a href="https://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-news/news/90s-stars-then-and-now-w432968/"> ‘90s Stars: Then and Now </a> In real life, Ryder has been <a href="https://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-news/news/winona-ryder-explains-why-she-has-never-been-married-w213098/">in a relationship with fashion designer Scott Mackinlay Hahn</a> since 2011.
