The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo has Ties to the NY Giants

Actress Roony Mara, who received critical acclaim in the United States for her portrayal of the heroine Lisbeth Salander in the film ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’, actually has ties to the New York Giants NFL team: her family owns the club.

Indeed, her NFL roots go even deeper. Her great grandfather founded the Pittsburgh Steelers. Her other great grandfather, Tim Mara, was also the founder of the New York Giants.

However, it’s not been revealed yet if the actress herself has any interest in the popular sport.

While a love of the game might not be in her, the hard working Irish heritage certainly is as she’s having success doing what she loves just as her great grandfathers did.
