Actor Keanu Reeves continues to live up to his good guy reputation as Winona Ryder has reflected on a sweet story when the pair were working on a film together in 1992.

Rumors and gossip have always circulated Hollywood, but one of the most positive open secrets is how lovely Keanu Reeves is to everyone he meets.

Winona Ryder has previously stated the pair have remained friends over the years, but spoke about a lesser-known good guy Keanu story.

Speaking to the Sunday Times, the Stranger Things star spoke about filming a scene when they were both working on Bram Stoker's Dracula in 1992.

As Gary Oldman’s Dracula was meant to turn into a pile of rats, Ryder’s character, Mina Harker, was meant to be shocked and begin crying.

However, on the day of filming, she couldn’t quite muster the tears.

Director Francis Ford Coppola had the admittedly brutal suggestion that her co-workers should barrage the actress with insults to get her to cry.

He himself took to calling her a whore. Nice mate.

Asking her male-co stars join in, she said Reeves refused to do it.

“To put it in context, I’m supposed to be crying,” she said

“Literally, Richard E. Grant, Anthony Hopkins, Keanu [Reeves]… Francis was trying to get all of them to yell things that would make me cry. But Keanu wouldn’t, Anthony wouldn’t.

“It just didn’t work. I was, like, really? It kind of did the opposite.”

In another bizarre incident from the filming of the film, Ryder has also said that she might actually be married to the Matrix actor.

Explaining what might have happened in an interview with Esquire, Reeves said: “We did a whole take of a marriage ceremony with real priests [during the filming Dracula]”

“Winona says we are. Coppola says we are. So, I guess we’re married under the eyes of God.”

Ryder has confirmed the pair are married during an interview with Entertainment Weekly.

“We actually got married in ‘Dracula’. No, I swear to god I think we’re married in real life. In that scene, Francis used a real Romanian priest,” she said.

“We shot the master and he did the whole thing. So, I think we’re married.”

Well, that is certainly one way to find a partner.
