Marisa has a brother, actor Adam Tomei. As a child, Marisa's mother frequently corrected her speech 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 (1956). 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 (1984). Three years later, Marisa became known for her role as Maggie Lawton, Lisa Bonet's college roommate, on the sitcom A Different World (1987).

Her real breakthrough came in 1992, when she co-starred as Joe Pesci's hilariously foul-mouthed, scene-stealing girlfriend in My Cousin Vinny (1992), a performance that won her a Best Supporting Actress Oscar. Later that year, she turned up briefly as a snippy Mabel Normand in director Richard Attenborough's biopic Chaplin (1992), and...

She, Marcia Gay Harden, Russell Crowe and Adrien Brody are the only actors to win an Oscar without being awarded for the same performance in none of its predecessor awards (Golden Globe, Critics Choice Awards, SAG and BAFTA). She and Marcia Gay Harden were not even nominated for those awards for their performances in My Cousin Vinny (1992) and Pollock (2000), and Crowe's only award for Gladiator (2000) before the Oscar was the Critics Choice award.

Christian Slater and Marisa Tomei in Real Love (1993)

After her Oscar win for "My Cousin Vinny", Tomei was targeted by a bizarre conspiracy theory, pushed mostly by film critic Rex Reed. Reed said that Tomei hadn't actually won the Oscar, and alternately stated that presenter Jack Palance had read the wrong name off the Oscar broadcast TelePrompter or gotten confused when reading the card listing the Best Supporting Actress winner and said Tomei's name, instead of that of Vanessa Redgrave or Emma Thompson, because it fell last alphabetically. However, the show's producers and Price Waterhouse Cooper vote counters said that, if anything, Reed or other anti-Tomei critics noted happened, a PWC representative had orders to go on stage and state both that a mistake had happened and then announce the actual winner. When this situation really occurred at the 2016 Oscars because La La Land (2016) was mistakenly announced as Best Picture winner because Warren Beatty was given the wrong information (it was a copy of Emma Stone's winning card for Best Actress), PWC handled this situation exactly as they had described by bringing out the winning card for Moonlight (2016). This fully debunked Red Reed's conspiracy theory one final indisputable time.
