You may be thinking that this is one thick clickbait title, but it's not — and both actors confirmed this. But don't think that you're going crazy: it surprised them, too.

This was first mentioned by Winona Ryder back in 2018, and her statement was all over the news, making jaws drop and the topic trending literally everywhere.

But many people soon forgot about it thinking it was just a fun joke… In reality, it wasn't: Keanu and Winona are still married to this day, and their story is a funny one.

Somehow, for many years of co-starring in various films together — pretty much, from 1992 all the way to 2018 — the actors were never noticed dating, and there were next to zero rumors about them.

This is pretty hilarious considering that they exist around almost any on-screen couple, but the one time this would've been somewhat of an understatement, they were completely avoided.

The fact is, Winona and Keanu got married all the way back in 1992 during the filming of Francis Ford Coppola's movie Bram Stoker's Dracula.

They both spoke about it on multiple occasions, too, and even Coppola supported these claims. Though the story of the marriage is pretty weird, they all believe it to be true.

"We did a whole take of marriage ceremony with real priests. <...> We are married under the eyes of God," Keanu confirmed to Esquire. Ryder and Coppola admitted this even sooner than him, back in 2018.

But how did this happen?

For the scene in Bram Stoker's Dracula where Keanu and Winona's characters were getting married, Coppola invited a genuine Romanian priest who performed the wedding ceremony for the two.

This might not have any legal force, but religious traditions claim that the two became husband and wife then and there.

Since they never bothered to get divorced, they are still considered married.

After all these years, it's a pretty funny bit of information indeed.

The actors treat it with humor and show no intent of backing off on their claims — apparently, Keanu and Winona are enjoying the fact that they're married to each other in such an unorthodox way.

And everyone knows that whatever makes Keanu Reeves happy, makes the entire Internet community happy, so we totally support the merry couple.
