Marisa Tomei was born on December 4, 1964, in Brooklyn, New York, to Patricia Adelaide Addie, an English teacher, and Gary A. Tomei, a lawyer. Marisa has a brother, actor Adam Tomei. Her parents are both of Italian descent, with roots in Tuscany and Sicily. As a child, Marisas mother frequently corrected her speech so as to eliminate her heavy Brooklyn accent. As a teen, Marisa attended Edward R. Murrow High School and graduated in the class of 1982. She was one year into her college education at Boston University when she dropped out for a co-starring role on the CBS daytime drama, As the World Turns. Her role on that show paved the way for her entrance into film: in 1984, she made her film debut with a bit part in The Flamingo Kid. Three years later, Marisa became known for her role as Maggie Lawton, Lisa Bonets college roommate, on the sitcom A Different World. Her real breakthrough came in 1992, when she co-starred as Joe Pescis hilariously foul-mouthed, scene-stealing girlfriend in My Cousin Vinny, a performance that won her an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. Later that year, she turned up briefly as a snippy Mabel Normand in director Richard Attenboroughs biopic, Chaplin, and was soon given her first starring role in Untamed Heart. A subsequent starring role — and attempted makeover into Audrey Hepburn — in the romantic comedy, Only You, with Robert Downey Jr. proved only moderately successful. Marisas other 1994 role as Michael Keatons hugely pregnant wife in The Paper was well-received, although the film as a whole was not. Fortunately for Tomei, she was able to rebound the following year with a solid performance as a troubled single mother in Nick Cassavetes Unhook the Stars, which earned her a Screen Actors Guild nomination. Also in 1996, she made a famous guest appearance on the popular sitcom, Seinfeld, as herself. She turned in a similarly strong work in Welcome to Sarajevo and, in 1998, did some of her best work in years as a sexually liberated, unhinged woman in Slums of Р™
