'House Of Cards' Star Kate Mara

Get to know 'House Of Cards' star Kate Mara and the lucky guys who've dated her!

House Of Cards is back and even Obama is stoked for the drama's return. "Tomorrow: @HouseOfCards. No spoilers, please," the POTUS tweeted yesterday. 

While it's a presidential request to keep Francis Underwood's actions mum, we're blowing the lid off Kate Mara's love life! Did you know the stunning actress, 30, who plays Zoe Barnes in the Netflix original series, hails from a football pedigree? Mara's the great-granddaughter of the founder of the New York Giants — and the great-granddaughter of the founder of the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Mara's also the older sister of Rooney Mara, who starred in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

But enough about the family! The scene-stealing redhead has been pretty great at keeping her private life under wraps, but her love life remains pretty intriguing. Get to know the ins and outs of this queen of hearts!

Kate Mara & McG
Kate Mara dated producer and writer McG from to 2008. The pair met on the set of McG's 2006 hit We Are Marshall. It ultimately didn't work out, possibly because McG is 15 years older than Mara.

Kate Mara & Charlie Cox
English actor Charlie Cox dated Kate Mara from to 2009. They reportedly met on the set of their movie The Stone Of Destiny. You probably never heard of that movie, but you've heard of their projects since: Cox has been on Downton Abbey and Mara's been on House Of Cards, American Horror Story and more.
Kate Mara & Justin Long
Awkward! Justin Long and Kate Mara reportedly dated briefly while filming the movie Years in summer 2012, but they barely lasted ten minutes. Why? Mara allegedly dumped him for an ex ... who was working on the same movie. Ouch! Who is he?
Kate Mara & Max Minghella
That would be English actor Max Minghella Mara and Minghella met in 2010 and later split in early 2012. Despite Mara's rumored dalliance with Justin Long later in 2012, they're still going strong today. This is one House Of Cards with a solid foundation!
