Winona Ryder’s character in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind lost her mind and now she can apparently see the afterlife – as she and Keanu Reeves.

Though the two never married, they have shared screen roles, and have travelled the world together over the years.

Ryder, 49, and the 56-year-old actor became known for their B-movie sensibilities.

“Just because we were two misfits who looked at the same book does not make us friends and that is wonderful,” Reeves said in 2015.

Ryder agreed.

“I’ve met this guy who’s very handsome who’s a genius, and I still don’t know why we like each other.”

Ryder first met Reeves – a cousin of Darryl Hannah – during a video conference call and had him on her student TV show.

Later she starred in her own dark, high-concept fantastical teen rom-com, Heathers, alongside Reeves, from 1989.

Seven years later they starred together in Big Trouble in Little China.

“That’s been my friend since we were 11 years old,” Ryder said.

The pair now appear together in the Lionsgate sci-fi short Go Like Hell.

Ryder’s most recent movies include Keep the Change, Win for Han Solo, Rich Christmas and the horror movie Haunt.

Reeves’ recent work has included Wrinkle in Time, Runner Runner and political satire Small Time Crooks.
