Winona Ryder's Friendship With Keanu Reeves Started When He Refused To Do This On a Movie Set

Winona Ryder is opening up about how her friendship with Keanu Reeves first started and it’s all because he refused to do something on the Dracula set.

During her eye-opening interview with The Sunday Times, the 48-year-old actress recalled that Keanu defied director Francis Ford Coppola‘s instructions on the set of Dracula to yell profanities at her.

“To put it in context I’m supposed to be crying,” Winona recalled. “Literally, Richard E. Grant, Anthony Hopkins, Keanu [Reeves]…Francis was trying to get all of them to yell things that would make me cry.”

Francis apparently was also yelling “you whore!” at her off camera, as well.

She added that “Keanu wouldn’t, Anthony wouldn’t. It just didn’t work. I was, like, really? It kind of did the opposite.”

While she and Francis are good today, Winona revealed that the movie was still horrible.

“It got the worst reviews,” she said. “That movie, for some reason, every reviewer was like, ‘This is the worst movie in the world,’ and it was really rough.”

Something else happened on the set of Dracula with Winona and Keanu, too. See what it is here…
