Hot and Covered...Marisa Tomei

Footloose and Sandal Free!

Apparently Marisa Tomei does not like to wear shoes. And to be honest, when it’s close to 100 degrees outside and I’m wearing a four-inch stiletto that feels two sizes too small, neither do I. But wear them I do. Especially if I’m having lunch on the shaded patio of a favorite restaurant in West Hollywood, as I was today with a totally hilarious New York Times best-selling author. I may not have noticed Ms. Tomei (who looked gorgeous from the ankle up) had it not been for her shoes—a fantastic pair of black leather woven sandals with leather ankle ribbons. So chic. Had they been on, that is. I’ve been looking for a good pair of black sandals, so these, sitting on the ground all alone to left of her chair, caught my attention—are they Marc by Marc, See By Chloe, maybe Sigerson Morrison? I wondered.

But then I got grossed out. Going barefoot in a restaurant has to be some kind of health code violation. Plus, I felt really bad for those abandoned sandals. So much so that I feel like I should adopt these, just to do my part:

Further successful movie appearances followed for Marisa, such as The Watcher - with Keanu Reeves and James Spader; What Women Want - with Mel Gibson; Someone Like You - opposite Ashley Judd, and the digitally-shot Chelsea Walls - directed by Ethan Hawke.

The tense drama In The Bedroom brought her to the forefront of her profession and eased her into an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress.

In 2002, she starred in The Guru with Heather Graham and alongside Adam Sandler and Jack Nicholson in Anger Management.

Subsequent roles have included on of Jude Law's female conquests in the remake of the Michael Caine classic Alfie and the Charles Bukowski biopic Factotum.
