Mara was born and raised in Bedford, New York, a town in Westchester
County about 40 miles north of New York City. Mara's mother's
family (the Rooneys) founded the
Pittsburgh Steelers and her father's
family (the Maras) founded the New York Giants. Her father, Timothy
Christopher Mara, is the vice president of player evaluation for the
New York Giants, and her mother, Kathleen McNulty (née Rooney), a
part-time real estate agent. She is the third of four children: she
has an older brother, Daniel, an older sister, Kate, who is also an
actress, and a younger brother, Conor.
Mara's father has Irish, German and French-Canadian ancestry, and her
mother is of Irish and Italian descent. Her Rooney ancestors
originated in Newry, County Down. Her paternal grandparents were
Wellington Mara and Ann Mara. Wellington was the long-time co-owner of
the Giants, who was succeeded in that position by his son (Rooney
Mara's uncle), John Mara. Rooney Mara's maternal grandfather, Timothy
James "Tim" Rooney, has run
Yonkers Raceway in
Yonkers, New York
Yonkers, New York since
1972. Mara is the great-granddaughter of both New York Giants
Tim Mara and
Pittsburgh Steelers founder Art Rooney, Sr., as
well as of Kathleen McNulty Rooney. Her granduncle, Dan Rooney,
was chairman of the Steelers, the former United States Ambassador to
Ireland, the co-founder of
The Ireland Funds charitable organization,
and the architect of American Football's Rooney Rule. U.S. Rep. Tom
Rooney from Florida is her first cousin, once removed.
After graduating from
Fox Lane High School in 2003, she went to
Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia in South America for four months as part of
the Traveling School, an open learning environment. She attended
George Washington University
George Washington University for a year and then transferred to New
York University's Gallatin School of Individualized Study, where she
studied psychology, international social policy and nonprofits,
graduating in 2010.
Mara was inspired to act by seeing musical theatre and classic movies,
like Gone with the Wind (1939), Rebecca (1940), and Bringing Up Baby
(1938), with her mother. She also wanted to be like her sister,
Kate Mara, a professional actress. Mara resisted pursuing acting as a
child, stating to
The Journal News that "it never seemed that
honorable to me, and I guess I was always afraid that I might
fail." Her first and only role in high school was Juliet in Romeo
and Juliet, which she got after being signed up to audition by a
friend. Mara acted in a few student films while at NYU, and then
began her career in acting, first auditioning at the age of

Special Victims Unit, as a girl who bullies overweight children.

drug addict in an episode of The Cleaner. Mara made her feature
film debut Dream Boy (2008) and guest-starred as Megan for two
episodes of NBC's ER.
In a coming-of-age film Tanner Hall (2009), Mara landed her first lead
role, as Fernanda who has an affair with a married family friend (Tom
Everett Scott). The film was the directorial debut of Princess
Tatiana von Fürstenberg and Francesca Gregorini, it debuted at
Toronto International Film Festival
Toronto International Film Festival and had a limited
theatrical release in September 2011. Mara dropped her first name
'Patricia', to be known professionally by her middle name after
working on the project. "I never really liked my first name," Mara
stated to Paper magazine. "I never felt like a Tricia. And Rooney is
more memorable". Her father and younger brother also go by their
In Miguel Arteta's comedy-drama film Youth in Revolt, Mara played
Taggarty who tries to sleep with fifty men before she goes to college.
The film was based on C.D. Payne's 1993 cult novel of the same
name. Mara had auditioned for the starring role, but was
offered the smaller part when the lead went to Portia Doubleday.
Mara played Courtney in the 2009 independent film, Dare and in The
Winning Season as Wendy, a high school basketball player having an
affair with a middle-aged shoe salesman (Kevin Breznahan) with a

"completely different from the original" and "the loneliest girl in
the world". Mara had signed on to continue her role if a sequel
was made. She stated to Vogue that she disliked the experience of
making the film so much, that it made her question if she wanted to be
an actress. Mara appeared at the Hamptons International Film
Festival in October 2009 as part of its Breakthrough Performers
Program, where she was tutored by Sharon Stone.
2010–2016: Breakthrough and critical success
Mara at the Hamptons International Film Festival, 2009
In David Fincher's biopic drama film The Social Network, she played
Erica Albright, who breaks up with Mark Zuckerberg, the creator of
In August 2010, Mara was cast as the lead in a film adaptation of the
Millennium book trilogy by Stieg Larsson. She played Lisbeth Salander,
a brilliant but troubled computer hacker who helps journalist Mikael
Blomkvist (Daniel Craig) solve a series of murders. Mara won the
role over several other actresses after two and a half months of
auditions and screen tests.
David Fincher directed the first
film, based on the novel The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, with Scott
Rudin producing. The other books, The Girl Who Played with Fire, and
The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest, may be adapted, depending on
box office performance. Fincher initially did not picture her
as the character but changed his mind when she auditioned. He
convinced executives at
Columbia Pictures to cast her for the
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo began shooting in Sweden in September
2010. Mara did not consider the film to be a remake, but another
interpretation of the novel. "I plan on giving my interpretation of
the character," she stated to Variety. Mara's long brown hair was
cut short and dyed black, in a style reminiscent of 1970s punk and
1980s goth fashions. She also had each of her ears pierced four times,
and had her brow and right nipple pierced for the role. Her nose and
lip piercings were fake. She kept the nipple piercing so that it would
not need to be re-pierced for a sequel. Mara's eyebrows were bleached,
and she wore a temporary dragon tattoo. She began preparing
for the role by starting to skateboard and kickbox, and underwent
dialect and computer training. She also visited Stockholm, the setting
of the novel. The film was released on December 20, 2011. Mara
received universal critical acclaim and was nominated for the Golden
Globe Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture –
Drama for her performance. On January 24, 2012, she was nominated
Academy Award for Best Actress
Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance.

Carey Mulligan in Spike Jonze's film, Her (2013). Variety

and Mara was selected to fill in alongside Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams
and Scarlett Johansson.
Mara starred in Steven Soderbergh's 2013 crime-thriller film Side
Effects, replacing Blake Lively. The film also starred Jude Law,
Catherine Zeta-Jones and Vinessa Shaw. She played
Emily Taylor, "a woman who turns to prescription medication as a way
of handling her anxiety concerning her husband's upcoming release from
prison." That same year, she starred in David Lowery's 2013
Ain't Them Bodies Saints
Ain't Them Bodies Saints which is described as a
modern-day Bonnie and Clyde story, alongside
Casey Affleck and Ben
Foster. The film premiered at the
Sundance Film Festival
Sundance Film Festival in
January 2013 where
IFC Films purchased the rights for U.S.
distribution. In May 2013, she became the new face of Calvin Klein

In 2014, Mara served as the costume designer on her former boyfriend
Charlie McDowell's film The One I Love, credited as Bree Daniel.
In 2015, Mara played Tiger Lily in the Joe Wright-directed fantasy
film Pan, a role which she received a great deal of criticism for
taking. She and Wright faced accusations of "whitewashing" a role
originally written for a Native American and of "Redface."  To
express their concerns, Native American activists created a hashtag
#NotYourTigerlily to protest Mara's casting and thousands of Native
Americans participated in a "Twitterstorm" to share memes addressing
their concerns about the portrayal of Native women in film.

Kibera is one of the largest slums in Africa
Mara founded the charity Faces of Kibera, which aimed to provide
housing, food, and medical care for orphans in Kibera, a Nairobi,
Kenya slum. The charity's goal was to build an orphanage in the
region, for which 6 acres of land have been purchased. The charity
auctioned memorabilia from the Steelers and Giants, as well as
training camp events on eBay to raise money. She visited the area
as a volunteer in 2006 and was moved to help the orphans, many whose
parents have died from AIDS and HIV-related illnesses. She began the
charity due to her frustration with the growing number of nonprofits
that are just business opportunities. "The people who need help
aren’t really getting it. So I started my own", she told Interview
magazine in 2009. Mara later found it challenging to balance her
charity work and acting career. "I need to do both; I can't just do
acting," she stated to The Journal News. In January 2011, Faces of
Kibera merged with Uweza Foundation which runs community-based
empowerment programs in Kibera, including soccer leagues and
after-school tutoring. Uweza is a Swahili word meaning opportunity,
ability, and power. Mara serves as the president of the board of
directors for the foundation.
Mara moved to Los Angeles in early 2007 and lived with her sister
temporarily. Although they do not live together anymore, Mara
felt that the experience brought them closer together, and as of 2010
were regularly discussing the film business and movie scripts. As
of January 2012, Mara lived in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los
Angeles. She includes
Gena Rowlands among the actresses who
inspire her, especially her performances in A Woman Under the
Influence (1974) and Opening Night (1977). She is a vegan.
From 2010 to late 2016, she was in a relationship with American
director Charlie McDowell.
Since late 2016, she has been dating actor Joaquin Phoenix.
They currently reside in the Hollywood Hills.
Mara's mother's family founded the Pittsburgh Steelers, and her
father's family founded the New York Giants. The families have
maintained at least partial ownership of both teams since their
foundings. Mara's father and paternal uncles have high ranking
positions within the Giants organization; her uncle
John Mara is the
president and CEO of the team. Her other uncle,
Art Rooney II, is the
current owner and president of the Steelers. Mara has described
football as "the glue that holds our family together."
