Are Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves having an on-set romance?

Star Magazine is reporting that Winona Ryder, 36, and Keanu Reeves, 43, are having an on-set romance on their film The Private Lives of Pippa Lee.

Sparks are flying between Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves on the set of the drama The Private Lives of Pippa Lee.

Star has learned that the two iconic stars have been spending lots of time in each other’s trailers.

“They are also always hugging on the set,” says a source. “The chemistry is really electric.”

They’ve gotten so close that during a break in filming in Connecticut, Winona, 36, relaxed with Keanu, 43, at his Manhattan pad. Stay tuned!

[From Star Magazine]

The detail that Winona went over to Keanu’s place adds some credence to this story, but Star Magazine always tries to romantically link co-stars. Their breathless stories about on-set romances usually include lines like “they kept kissing after the cameras stopped,” and “they hugged just a little too long, everyone noticed it.” (These are paraphrased from memory, but they’re not far off from the lines Star regularly uses for fake stories. )

It’s possible that this is true – Winona and Keanu are single as far as I know, although the tabloids don’t follow these two much since their popularity seems to have peaked about 10 years ago. Keanu was seen out with an “unknown woman” in early April, but who knows what that was about.

A lot of romances start on set, and maybe they found that they’re kindred spirits. They could be smoking together in Keanu’s trailer or taking turns using his rented hyperbaric chamber. These two don’t seem like the type to go to a popular restaurant to make their romance public, but both of them could use the publicity that would follow. We’ll have to see if anything more comes of this story or if it’s planted firmly in Star’s imagination.

Winona Ryder is shown at Paris Fashion Week on 2/2/08. Keanu Reeves is shown at the Street Kings premiere in Seoul, South Korea on 4/17/08. Thanks to WENN.

    Q: Are Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves having an on-set romance?

    A: Keanu is gay so unless Winona is a man I am going to have to say “NOPE”.

  4. elisha says:

    Calling them “iconic” is a total stretch (for Keanu anyway).

    These two make total sense. They’re both from the same “era” of stardom.

  5. Kevin says:

    I think they would make a cute couple. I’ve always thought she was a total doll. If I was Keanu I would totally lock up my valuables before nodding of after a hard night of bonking.

  6. lulu says:

    love them both!

  7. They already know each other… probably from a long way back, but they also co-starred in A Scanner Darkley about 2-3 years ago.

    Maybe this time they’re both single so they had a green light.

    They’d make a cute couple…

  8. neelyo says:

    In the 90’s she had quite a reputation for sleeping around a lot so it wouldn’t surprise me if she tried to bed Keanu.

  9. MissMara says:

    They would make cute babies!!!

  10. Emily says:

    Aaahhhh I love this. I hope they marry – they’re both sensitive beautiful creatures.

  11. MISSY says:

    They also starred in Dracula together some years back and didn’t hook up then

  12. AC says:

    I love Keanu. 🙂 They would work together I think.

    When you’re on set and acting romantically with an actor its almost impossible for the chemistry to just turn on and off. there can be a fuzzy line there so its not THAT out of the ordinary for hugging and spending lots of time together etc.

    her face looks really tight.

  14. cg says:

    I hate to break it to you all-but Keanu is gay. I have firsthand knowledge of it-(no, I’m not gay myself but I have inside info) so it’s probably just a publicity stunt.

  15. don'tthinkso says:

    Why do some people want this guy to be gay? Single gay men in their mid-30’s don’t impregnate their girlfriends – Keanu did.

  16. Susan says:

    Love them both – they make a GREAT couple! 😀

    This is old and nobody will read my comment but I HIGHLY doubt this combination. Keanu Reeves knows her forever. He was friends with Johnny Depp. Johnny and Winona were an item for a loooooooong time. River, Keanus best friend, died at Johnny Depps club. There is ALOT of history and common ground but there are also really negative associations for them to each other so I am gonna say this is much ado about nothing. And stop saying mean things about him! OMG he is HOT and to be perfectly honest, he makes me melt. SOmethings Gotta Give playing a sexy doctor, A walk in the clouds…. OMG yummy.
