But despite such a big age gap, the two are happy together and it has never caused any issues in their relationship. Moreover, Rooney has discovered many things thanks to O’Donnell, including Barbra Streisand.

I get along so well with her, it’s kind of fascinating. The one thing that she doesn’t know? [Barbra] Streisand. I made her watch Funny Girl. She’s like, ‘It was good.’ I’m like, ‘Come on!’

We are certain Elizabeth has a lot to share with her fiancée, too. For example, funny stories from her job. Rooney is a police officer from Worcester and she has to ride a horse every day as she works in the mounted division.

Sure, working in showbiz can be very exciting and fun, but being an equestrian police officer sounds just as fascinating!
