Kate Mara is a proud New Yorker! She was born and raised in the Big Apple. (Photo: WENN)
She has one younger sister, Rooney Mara, who is also an actress. She’s best known for her work on “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.” (Photo: WENN)
Mara was born into not one, but two NFL franchises. Her mother’s side of the family owns the Pittsburgh Steelers, and her father’s side of the family owns the New York Giants. (Photo: WENN)
Understandably, she roots for both teams. “If I’m mad at my mom I root for the Giants, and if I’m pissed at my dad I root for the Steelers,” she’s joked. (Photo: WENN)
Being the huge NFL fan that she is, her contracts state that she can attend the game, regardless of her working schedule, if either team, Giants or Steelers, goes to the Super Bowl. (Photo: WENN)
She’s not only a terrific actress, but also an incredible singer. In fact, she’s sung the National Anthem at multiple NFL games thanks to her beautiful voice—and her connections, of course. (Photo: WENN)
Mara’s first acting gigs were guest appearances on numerous shows like “Law and Order” and “Nip/Tuck.” (Photo: WENN)
Though she’s been nominated for an Emmy thanks to her work on “House of Cards”, Kate has yet to bring home the gold! (Photo: WENN)
Kate has been in multiple high-profile relationships. From 2008 to 2009 she dated fellow actor Charlie Cox after meeting on the set of “The Stone of Destiny”. (Photo: WENN)
From 2010 to 2014, Mara had an on-again, off-again relationship with Max Minghella. (Photo: WENN)
In 2015, Kate started dating “Fantastic Four” co-star Jamie Bell. (Photo: WENN)
In 2017, the couple announced they were engaged, and 6 months later news broke that they had tied the knot in a surprise ceremony. (Photo: WENN)
Kate is stepmother to Jamie Bell’s son from his previous marriage to Evan Rachel Wood. (Photo: WENN)
Mara is a vegan, partially for health reasons, and partially because she is “a massive animal lover.” “Cheese was definitely the hardest things to give up,” she said. (Photo: WENN)
comes from a well-known family in both sports and showbusiness. But nepotism has had nothing to do with her flourishing success in the entertainment world.
Thanks to her truly remarkable acting skills, the eldest Mara sister is a well-accomplished actress by her own, making a name for herself in Hollywood with titles like
House of Cards, Fantastic Four, and The Martian on her steadily growing resume.
And we’re sure we still haven’t seen the best from her!
