Did Keanu Reeves Just Confirm What We'd Always Hoped About His Relationship With Winona Ryder?

Back in the late 1980s/early 1990s, Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves were all over the place. She was the slightly spooky, goth-lite girl who starred in "Beetlejuice," "Heathers," and "Edward Scissorhands," while he was best known for playing a spacey goofball in "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure" before aging into the action hero we see beginning with "The Matrix."

The two of them dated their fair share of fellow show biz professionals. According to Parade, Reeves' past relationships have included the actresses Jill Schoelen, Sofia Coppola, and Jennifer Syme, while Ryder's dating resume includes such A-list names as Rob Lowe, Christian Slater, David Duchovny, and Matt Damon, and she was even briefly engaged to Johnny Depp (via PopSugar).

Did Ryder and Reeves ever get together with each other, though? Well, yes and no. Although they were never romantically linked, it seems that they may, in fact, be man and wife. In fact, they're coming up on their 30th "anniversary" next year!

The couple had a real wedding ceremony on a movie set

As Winona Ryder revealed in a 2018 interview with Entertainment Weekly, "We actually got married in 'Dracula'. No, I swear to god I think we're married in real life." How did this happen? Well, it seems that for the scene where their two characters marry, film director Francis Ford Coppola used a real Romanian priest to perform the ceremony. Could it be that Coppola, father of Reeve's one-time girlfriend Sofia Coppola, wanted to make sure that he never had to welcome the actor into his own family?

Keanu Reeves did not comment on Francis' involvement, but he did confirm in a recent appearance on Esquire's "Explain This" (via YouTube) that he considers Ryder to be his wife. As he said in the interview when asked about the marriage, "Winona says we are. Coppola says we are. So I guess we're married under the eyes of God."

As the marriage ceremony took place on February 14, 1992, Ryder and Reeves will be entering their fourth decade of wedded bliss on Valentine's Day 2022. Do they have any special plans to celebrate? Probably none that their current partners are aware of, at any rate. Still, it's interesting to note that neither of the two have ever made it to the altar with anyone else.
