It looks like Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves just might have actually gotten married while shooting Bram Stoker's Dracula way back in 1992.

Ryder and Reeves are working together again, this time in the upcoming romantic comedy, Destination Wedding. Speaking with Entertainment Weekly to help promote their newest project together Ryder jokingly revealed that she and her co-star might have actually gotten married in real life when they starred in Bram Stoker's Dracula.

Those who've seen the movie might remember that Reeve's character Jonathan Harker and Ryder's Mina Harker, got married together in a scene that was set in Romania. While many believe that the wedding was created simply for the film, director Francis Ford Coppola actually used a real Romanian priest to perform the ceremony.

"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."

It's pretty funny because Reeves tries to play along with Ryder's revelation, turning it into a joke saying that it was lovely to see his co-star again and then making fun of the long separation they've had as a "couple." It's a pretty cute moment where the two banter with each other, with Reeves jokingly realizing that they might actually have gotten married.

Sure, the two might not have gotten any official documentation to legalize the coupling, but in a sense, the two could be celebrating 26 years of coupledom.
