Joaquin Phoenix and Rooney Mara, new couple of the moment


  • Rooney Mara and Joaquin Phoenix are expecting their first child
  • The red carpet of the Oscars 2020.

    In a most relaxed pose, he next to the Oscar for Best Actor that he had just won for his portrayal of the Joker and she in her impeccable Alexander McQueen ball gown and a pair of Converse sneakers while they both taste some hamburgers (vegan, for course) sitting on the floor smiling, happy and in love. This photo of Joaquin Phoenix and Rooney Mara was taken by photographer Greg Williams the early morning of February 10 and has become the viral image of the Oscars 2020 that everyone has talked about non-stop for days.

    It is as if thanks to this moment the world has discovered that Joaquin Phoenix and Rooney Mara are a couple. And not just any couple, one at the level of other mythical ones like Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt or Winona Ryder and Johnny Depp, who unfortunately are no longer with us (sentimentally speaking of course, the four are still alive and well). How long have you been together? How did they meet? Do wedding bells ring? Why don’t they ever pose on the red carpets together? We answer all these questions by reviewing the love story starring this couple of actors.

    From different worlds

    He came to the world in 1974 in Puerto Rico. His parents were missionaries of Los Hijos de Dios, a sect born in the counterculture of the 1960s, and they traveled throughout the American continent proclaiming their faith. His life is undoubtedly marked by the death of his famous older brother River Phoenix in 1993 at the door of the Viper Room nightclub from an overdose. Joaquin was the one who called the ambulance begging that they would save his life while he watched him die. No wonder when picking up his Oscar he mentioned his brother through tears.

    She was born into a wealthy family that founded two football teams, the New York Giants and the Pittsburgh Steelers. She graduated from psychology and non-governmental organizations and also has a sister who is a dedicated interpreter, Kate Mara.

    This is how love arose

    They met for the first time in 2012 during the filming of the movie ‘Her’. But things did not start on the right foot between them because the actor came to think that she hated him. Finally everything was clarified and it was seen that it was a matter of shyness and that he actually did like him, as Phoenix confessed. And that’s when the first spark arose. “She is the only girl I have ever looked up on the Internet. We were just friends, email friends. I’ve never done that before, look for a girl on the net “admitted the actor.

    But even though there was chemistry, hers at the time was impossible because Mara was dating director Charlie McDowell. Then they worked together on two more titles, ‘Don’t worry, you won’t get far on foot’ and ‘María Magdalena’. It would be in this last film in which the love for both parties finally emerged. The first photos together arrived in 2017 and the Cannes Film Festival was the scene of their public confirmation.

    First of all, discretion

    They are both very shy and hate being the center of attention. Also, they don’t like posing together on red carpets. They arrive together yes, but at the moment of posing one does it first and while the other waits. When it comes to Rooney’s turn, we often see her smile at the comments her boyfriend makes while waiting for her. Isn’t the chemistry between them evident in this picture?

    But still they are very discreet with their relationship and do not usually talk about it. And when they do, it is in code. Let me explain, when Phoenix collected the TIFF Tribute Actor Award in Toronto, during his thank you speech he said the following: “One last thing, somewhere, I don’t know where, there is a dirty dragon, and I want to tear off its wings, hold it with a blanket and sleep with it forever. I love you. Thanks”. Relax everyone, he has not lost his mind. The “dirty dragon” is in reference to the character of Lisbeth Salander that Mara plays in the movie ‘Millenium: The men who did not love women’. Here you have this rare but tender moment (from minute 7:04).

    Lo that the one

    Both have been following a vegan diet for years and are strong defenders of animal rights and the fight against climate change. They demonstrate whenever they can and recently we have seen them alongside Jane Fonda in their usual Friday protests. Phoenix even participated in a vigil at a Los Angeles pig slaughterhouse organized by the NGO LA Animal Save after collecting his award at the 2020 SAG Awards. His commitment is undeniable.

    The couple share their Hollywood home with several dogs and it is common to see them walking with them through the streets of the city as a happy family.

    In July 2019, the wedding bells began to ring when paparazzi took photos of Rooney with a diamond ring on his left hand that appeared to be an engagement jewel. They may say ‘yes, I do’ this year, although considering how discreet they are with their private lives, we will most likely never see images from that moment. Be that as it may, for us they are already one of our favorite couples.
