As of January 2012, Mara lived in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles. She includes Gena Rowlands among the actors who inspire her, especially her performances in A Woman Under the Influence (1974) and Opening Night (1977). She is a vegan. Since 2010, she has been dating American director Charlie McDowell.


NFL ties
Mara's mother's family founded the Pittsburgh Steelers, and her father's family founded the New York Giants.

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. Mara has described football as "the glue that holds our family together."
