It's hard to picture shy girl playing the brash Zoe, though. "I became more confident as I got to know myself' says Mara, laughing. 'That's why I don't think getting older is so bad. I was also an old soul when I was a kid. I wanted to get out of school so that I could start my little life." But as ready as she was to take on an adult acting career, Mara's childhood was pretty cinematic. As the great-granddaughter of both The New York Giants founder and the Pittsburgh Steelers founder, she is one of the princesses of the NFL royal family. Shew grew up in leafy Westchester, across the street from several of her cousins. (She has "hundreds of cousins") "The was a never-ending supply of family members," she says excitedly. "We'd go to football games as a family every other Sunday." – from Elle Canda February 2014 edition.
