After graduating summa cum laude from Harvard University in 1989, Mira moved to New York and booked a role on Swans Crossing and in several films. In 1995, though, she landed her first big role as Linda Ash in Woody Allen’s Mighty Aphrodite. Mira’s portrayal as a young, lively sex worker landed her an Oscar win in 1996. During her acceptance speech, the actress credited Paul for everything she knew.

Following Mighty Aphrodite, Mira continued booking leading jobs in films like Beautiful Girls, Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion, Summer of Sam, and Lifetime’s miniseries Human Trafficking.

While she acknowledges Mighty Aphrodite's impact on her career, Mira admittedly regrets her time working with Woody amid the sexual assault allegations made against him by his daughter Dylan Farrow. The actress said she supports Dylan’s claims and that Woody’s alleged actions “tainted” her early career.

"[Woody’s alleged behavior] ​​ruins Mighty Aphrodite for me, ruins my Oscar performance, ruins that start of my career because I treasured it for years, and then it’s like, I should have denounced him,” Mira said in May 2022 on WTF Podcast, per IndieWire. “I should have known it then.”
