"Winona Ryder says Keanu Reeves refused Francis Ford Coppola’s request to hurl abuse at her until she cried on Dracula set"

Independent:

Ryder said that, during filming of a scene involving Gary Oldman’s Dracula transforming into a pile of rats, Coppola stood off camera repeatedly shouting “You whore!” in order to get her to believably cry. Coppola also attempted to get the film’s male cast to join in, too.

“To put it in context I’m supposed to be crying,” Ryder told The Sunday Times. “Literally, Richard E Grant, Anthony Hopkins, Keanu … 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.”
