Rumors are rampant that Joaquin Phoenix and Rooney Mara are dating.
According to Page Six, the two “found love” while shooting their new film "Mary Magdalene” last year.
Though Mara’s film “Lion” was nominated for four Golden Globes, she was absent from the festivities. Why? A source claimed that Rooney and Joaquin were “holed up together in the desert.”
Despite reports that they have been spending a lot of time with each other, his rep says their relationship is platonic. The rep explained, "They worked on [the 2013 film] ‘Her,’ ‘Mary Magdalene’ and [their] next movie. They are and have been good friends for quite a long time.”
Rooney was last linked to director Charlie McDowell, who she was dating for six years. The two have not been spotted together since September.
