Born: c. 1985
Hometown: Bedford, N.Y.

How You Know Her: As if you needed a reason to worship at the feet of this beauty, she is named after her great-grandfather and Pittsburgh Steelers founder Art Rooney, Sr. and New York Giants founder Tim Mara. With that grid-iron pedigree, Rooney has made a name for herself with steady television work (Law & Order: SVU, ER) and a notable role in Youth in Revolt. You can catch her as your dream girl come to life in A Nightmare on Elm Street, slashing its way into theaters this Friday.

Grim and Bear It: "I'm not at all funny. I can do dark comedy pretty well, but straight-up comedy, I don't know...I've been like that since I was 3 years old. For Halloween, my mom asked me what I wanted to be. I said Klara, the crippled girl in the movie Heidi." —Interview Magazine

If you like this Mara, you'll love big sis Kate Mara, too!
