Best known for her role as Dr. Melfi on The Sopranos, Bracco also has an impressive resume when it comes to marrying and divorcing character actors and going broke.
After graduating from high school, she moved to Paris to model where she walked the runway for Jean-Paul Gaultie. Bracco eventually found her way into European films and spent a decade on the other side of the pond. She moved back to the U.S. in the late '80s and earned kudos and an Oscar nod for her role as a strung-out mob wife in Martin Scorsese's Goodfellas in 1990. A procession of fairly well-received movies followed, but Bracco only really re-entered the public consciousness after David Chase cast her in The Sopranos as James Gandolfini's conflicted therapist, Dr. Jennifer Melfi. The exposure helped her make the jump to Broadway in 2004, where she appeared as Mrs. Robinson in The Graduate. Since then-and since the demise of the show-Bracco has maintained a low profile, with one of her biggest recent roles being an arch on Rizzoli & Isles.
Bracco's had a rocky romantic history. After her first marriage, she married Harvey Keitel and they spent 11 years together, but the relationship eventually culminated in divorce and a messy five-year battle for custody of their daughter Stella, actions that forced her to file for bankrupcy in 1999 due to mounting legal fees.
