Marisa Tomei On Being Typecast As A Movie Mom: ‘I Really Regret Starting Down This Road’



Marisa Tomei is an Oscar Winner for her role in “My Cousin Vinny”

She plays Pete Davidson’s mom in “The King of Staten Island”, but she says she's over being cast as a mom in all her movies.

“I really regret starting down this road and I really regret starting to do that. “I was, you know, talked into it — not [‘King of Staten Island’], but I mean just that change — and I really always felt like, ‘Oh I could play a lot of things.’”

“Honestly, [playing a mom is] probably more of a stretch than other things. “I think every actor and actress has a lot of dimensions to them and if the scope of what is being written and being made is narrow, and you want to keep working, you do what you can.”

She says she'd like to play in other genres:

“I mean, even genres that I would love to be in, you know? “The femme fatale, and in a noir.”
