BIOGRAPHY Marisa Tomei
Marisa was born on December 4, 1964, the year in Brooklyn - in the family of the teacher Patricia Adelaide and lawyer Gary Italians by birth. Three years later, he was born Marisa's younger brother - Adam is now also an actor, however, he is more modest career than her sister.
About a child actress almost nothing is known. But at the end of high school, she became a student at Boston University, however, almost immediately tried to transfer closer to his parents - in New York. Unlearning Marisa just over a year, and then accepted the offer to play in a "soap opera" "As the World Turns" and did not want to continue their studies. Her character Marcy acted in the show a couple of seasons. But this aspiring actress was enough to make: it is on the right track!
Creative Biography Marisa Tomei continued in the sitcom "Another World", and when she was 26 years old, she got a role in the crime comedy John Landis 'Oscar'. I must say that a remake of an old French film of the same name with the nicest Louis de Funes Americans is quite a success. However, the scenario has changed: the title character was the mafia (he played great Sylvester Stallone, unclear what Sly nominated for a "Razzie"!). Not very experienced Marisa perfect "fit" in the star cast (which was attended by Tim Curry, Chazz Palminteri and Italian diva Ornella Muti).
This is not a mistake!
Perhaps the title of this picture was prophetic. A year later, Tomei starred in another crime comedy ("My Cousin Vinny") and won for her role as Mona Lisa "Oscar", as well as a premium channel «MTV» in the category of "Breakthrough of the Year." From funny hero Joe Pesci and Marisa had a magnificent couple!
In 1990, the actress was a lot of work, and it did not just appear occasion to prove that awarding her the Academy Award - is not just a nice "advance" (someone spread rumors that the statue fell to the Tomei ... by mistake - say, screwed up artist, announces the winner of the nomination). There was reason to doubt the public as rivals yesterday debutants were very experienced performers (including British women Vanessa Redgrave and Miranda Richardson). This period includes Marisa Tomei biography biopic "Chaplin," "production drama" Ron Howard's "newspaper" melodrama "Only you," black comedy "Four Rooms."
