Yes, you read right.

Winona Ryder is known for being a bit, shall be say, quirky.

However, during the press tour for her up-and-coming movie, Destination Wedding alongside Keanu Reeves, she shocked with a confession. 

She is sure that she married Keanu Reeves on-camera when they made Dracula in 1992. 

According to Entertainment Weekly, Winona said, “we actually got married in Dracula. No, I swear to god I think we’re married in real life.''

While their characters get married in the movie, the man marrying them wasn't acting like they were. 

“In that scene, Francis [Ford Coppola] used a real Romanian priest,” she explained. 

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

It seems that Keanu doesn't share the same crystal-clear memory as his co-star as he asked Winona did they actually say ''yes''.

Yep, they did, she reminded him.

''It was Valentine's Day,'' she told him.

How romantic! 

The penny finally dropped for her alleged hubby whe he admitted, “oh my gosh, we’re married.''

And it's all thanks to director Francis Ford Coppola

Destination Wedding hits cinemas on August 31st and we are so there – who doesn't love two '90s icons?

Airbnb is well known for its quirky residential offerings, but this Halloween the famed homestay network is running one seriously scary competition.

The site has announced that a stay at Bran Castle in Romania – aka Dracula’s Castle – will be up for grabs for the night of October 31.

Two brave individuals will be able to call the misty mountain-top manor home thanks to host Dacre Stoker – that’s Bram Stoker’s great grandnephew – who will guide his guests through “lamp-lit corridors, creepy nooks, and squeaky staircases”.

The medieval fortress boasts 57 rooms, tower lookouts and “deep dark crypts” which can be explored before the sun sets.

Once darkness falls, Transylvanian castle-life hits peak creepiness with “unexpected guests” appearing, a “blood-enriching” Dracula inspired meal being served, and beds being offered in the form of velvet-trimmed coffins in the Count’s crypt.

To enter the competition, thrill-seekers are asked to show their “vampiric wit” in response to the following question: “What would you say to the Count if you were to come face-to-fang with him in his own castle?”

The winners will be flown to Transylvania courtesy of Airbnb and will stay at the castle free of charge.

Enter if you dare

Sir Christopher Lee has died at the age of 93.The legendary actor had been hospitalised for respiratory problems and heart failure.

The news is coming a few days after his death – a decision made by his wife of 50 years, Danish model and painter Gitte Kroencke. Ms Kroencke understandably wanted to inform family members first, before releasing the news to the public.

The Fellowship of the Ring star was most famous for his villainous roles, playing the roles of Count Dracula, the Frankenstein monster and Fu Manchu. He also starred as the Bond villain opposite Roger Moore in The Man with the Golden Gun.

Sir Lee also boasted the incredible fact of being the only member of The Lord of the Rings franchise to ever actually meet JRR Tolkien, who was born in 1892.

The star who was also a heavy metal musician has one final film that will be released posthumously, Angels in Notting Hill.

Sir Lee was also set to star opposite Uma Thurman in The 11th, a drama based around the events of September 11th. However, filming had yet to begin when the 93-year-old passed away.
