Marisa Tomei 'really regrets' making the transition into playing mothers

The King of Staten Island star Marisa Tomei says she “regrets” making the decision to play mother roles on the big screen. Tomei added: “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. It was maybe not the right road, but you know, I do try to make the most of it.” Tomei said there were plenty of roles she would love the opportunity to play, outside of being the mother of a male protagonist, including a “femme fatale” in a noir. Supporting roles are filled by the likes of Bill Burr, Steve Buscemi, Bel Powley and Maude Apatow.
