However, Coppola wanted a more extreme response from Ryder and began shouting more and more insults at her to get a bigger reaction for the scene.

Winona added that he had asked the other male co-stars to join in, but some of them refused, speaking to The Sunday Times, she said,

"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."
