In the height of the ‘Joker’ movie release on October 4th, lead role Joaquin Phoenix is still gushing over his fiancée, ‘The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’ actress Rooney Mara.
The couple reportedly met on the set of ‘Her’ in 2013.
Apparently, the 44-year old ‘Joker’ actor is “in love and he’s got the Google search history to prove it,” as per People.
As per Phoenix’s Vanity Fair interview, he initially believed that the 34-year old actress did not have any inclination towards him while they were filming ‘Her.’ However, he discovered that his co-star “liked him but was just shy.”
“She’s the only girl I ever looked up on the internet,” the actor quipped. “We were just friends, email friends. I’d never done that. Never looked up a girl online,” the seasoned actor continued.
The couple were both spotted canoodling during their red carpet debut at the Cannes Film Festival in 2017. That time, Phoenix also won best actor for his performance in the movie ‘You Were Never Really Here.”
Joaquin Phoenix also thanked his fiancée last month when he accepted the Tribute Actor Award during the Toronto International Film Festival.
“One last thing — somewhere here, I don’t know where, is a filthy dragon and I wan to rip its wings off and fasten a blanket and sleep with it forever,” Phoenix lovingly said. “I love you. Thank you,” he continued.
