About This Item
This “Star” series of travel bugs is to bring attention to my favorite movie actors. Some have awards, some do not. There is no criterion to be included as a favorite beyond I will watch anything that has her/him in it.
Marisa Tomei was born in 1964, in Brooklyn, NY, to mother Patricia "Addie" Tomei, an English teacher, and father Gary Tomei, a lawyer. As a child, Marisa's mother frequently corrected her speech so as to eliminate her heavy Brooklyn accent. 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 (1956). She also landed bit part in movies and TVs until her breakthrough came in 1992, when she co-starred as Joe Pesci's girlfriend in My Cousin Vinny (1992), a performance that won her an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress.
She won critical acclaim in a series of box office failures, but it was guest appearences on the popular sitcom, Seinfeld (1989), that kept her in the public consciousness. Marisa co-starred with Mel Gibson in the hugely successful romantic comedy, What Women Want (2000), and, during the 2002 movie award season, she proved her first Oscar win was no fluke when she was nominated a second time for the critically-acclaimed dark drama, In the Bedroom (2001). She has worked steadily ever since, frequently garnerning award nominations along the way. My personal favorite movies are My Cousin Vinny (1992), The Perez Family (1995), Unhook the Stars (1996) and Slums of Beverly Hills (1998). She is just soo cute!
