She's one of the most exciting actresses working today. After getting her start in films like Youth in Revolt, Rooney Mara has gone on to make waves in films, such as Her, Lion, and A Ghost Story. So, who has Rooney Mara dated? You might be surprised to learn there haven’t been very many Rooney Mara relationships.

  • The relationship between Rooney Mara and Joaquin Phoenix has been fairly low-key. They met in 2013 on the set of Her, but the relationship rumors did not begin to form until the beginning of 2017. Reports circled that the two fell for each other while filming Mary Magdalene. In September of 2017, Phoenix revealed that the two lived together in Los Angeles. 

    In 2018, they said they had no intention to get married because they both believed it was too "mainstream." However, in the summer of 2019, Phoenix popped the question, and the two officially became engaged.

    Page Six reported in May 2020, that Phoenix and Mara were expecting their first child together, and the following September the child was born. People reported that they named their firstborn, a baby boy, "River." This in order to honor Phoenix's late brother.
