Ryder, 48, recently explained to The Sunday Times that, at the time, she was doing a scene in which her character was supposed to be crying.
Per the outlet, Coppola reportedly was off-camera shouting insults, such as “You whore!” — and according to Ryder, he tried to have her male co-stars do the same in order to get tears from her.
“To put it in context I’m supposed to be crying,” Ryder explained to the outlet. “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,” the actress said.
According to People magazine, Reeves’ refusal has since led to a long friendship between the two. Meanwhile, Ryder said that she and the Oscar-winning director are “good now.”
Following the Gary Oldman-starring flick “Dracula,” Ryder and Reeves, 55, have reunited on-screen for 2006’s “A Scanner Darkly,” 2009’s “The Private Lives of Pippa Lee” and “Destination Wedding” in 2018.
A rep for Coppola did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
