Neither Rooney nor Joaquin does not like to tell the press about their personal life. We only know that Rooney has been dating the director Charlie McDowell for six years, but recently the pair ceased to appear together, and therefore the media are confident in their parting. Joaquin is only admitted in an interview:
"I have never had a relationship that would end with broken hearts or accusations. I once had unrequited love. I said "I love you" and did not get it back. I have never had a broken heart".
