Joaquin Phoenix Admiring His Girlfriend Rooney Mara On The Red Carpet Is Goals

In the Morning of Life

by Thomas Moore

In the morning of life, when its cares are unknown,
And its pleasures in all their new lustre begin,
When we live in a bright-beaming world of our own,
And the light that surrounds us is all from within;
Oh 'tis not, believe me, in that happy time
We can love, as in hours of less transport we may; —
Of our smiles, of our hopes, 'tis the gay sunny prime,
But affection is truest when these fade away.

When we see the first glory of youth pass us by,
Like a leaf on the stream that will never return,
When our cup, which had sparkled with pleasure so high,
First tastes of the other, the dark-flowing urn;
Then, then in the time when affection holds sway
With a depth and a tenderness joy never knew;
Love, nursed among pleasures, is faithless as they,
But the love born of Sorrow, like Sorrow, is true.

In climes full of sunshine, though splendid the flowers,
Their sighs have no freshness, their odour no worth;
\‘Tis the cloud and the mist of our own Isle of showers
That call the rich spirit of fragrancy forth.
So it is not \‘mid splendour, prosperity, mirth,
That the depth of Love's generous spirit appears;
To the sunshine of smiles it may first owe its birth,
But the soul of its sweetness is drawn out by tears.

Joaquin Phoenix didn’t walk the 77th Golden Globes red carpet with fiancee Rooney Mara. Why you might ask? Because he wanted to sweetly admire her from afar instead. When she realized he was staring at her, Mara giggled and beamed right back at him. Can this love story get any cuter? Talk about relationship goals.


Photographers captured the sweet moment. Phoenix covered his mouth while he gazed at his actress and fiancee. Mara, for those who don’t know, is the “Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” star. Mara wore a black lace Givenchy dress.


Mara wasn’t nominated for any awards this year, but she was previously nominated for best actress in a motion picture drama in 2012 and 2016 for her roles in “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” and “Carol.”


This year, she accompanied her fiance to the awards show. Phoenix was nominated and won the category of best actor in a drama motion picture for his performance in “Joker.” During his acceptance speech, Phoenix grew emotion while he thanked Mara and wiped away tear.s
