Happy birthday, Marisa Tomei! Today the actress turns 50.

Born in Brooklyn New York to Patricia and Gary Tomei, Marisa caught the acting bug early after being captivated by the Broadway shows she watched with her family. Following string of small roles, her career exploded with her Oscar-winning performance in the 1992 film My Cousin Vinny.

While investigating her Italian roots on the popular genealogy show Who Do You Think You Are?, Marisa discovered the true story behind the murder of her great grandfather, Francesco Leopoldo Bianchi.

Marisa Tomei is connected to over 80 million people in Geni’s World Family Tree. How are you related?
