Francis Ford Coppola Denies Claim That He Directed Keanu Reeves to Verbally Abuse Winona Ryder

Getty-Images-1019019032

In an interview with The Sunday Times, Winona claimed that in order to make her cry more, Coppola, 81, began shouting insults at her, including “you whore!”

Francis Ford Coppola released a statement to People Magazine:

“While I think Winona is a wonderful actor, the incident she described is not how it happened, and shouting or abusing people isn’t something I do as a person or as a filmmaker."

He continued:

“In this situation, which I remember clearly, I instructed Gary Oldman—in character as Dracula—to whisper improvised words to her and the other characters, making them as horrific and evil as he could. I don’t know what was said, but improvisation is a common filmmaking practice”
