Was a member of the Naked Angels, a New York theatre company that has also included Matthew Broderick, Sarah Jessica Parker, Rob Morrow, Mary Stuart Masterson, Nancy Travis and Gina Gershon. Played herself in the Seinfeld episode "The Cadillac," in which George becomes obsessed with dating her after hearing from a mutual friend that she likes quirky, bald-headed men. Costarred with her brother, Adam, in the 1998 Showtime drama My Own Country. Won an Oscar for her supporting role in My Cousin Vinny---over four very experienced actresses---and was then subjected to rumours that presenter Jack Palance had read the wrong name (either by mistake or as a joke).

Released a fitness DVD -- Marisa Tomei: Core and Curves in 2010. Has supported various charities including Artists for Peace and Justice, Equality Now and New York Restoration Project.
