Mira Sorvino was born in Tenafly,New Jersey. She is the daughter of veteran character actor Paul Sorvino. She attended Harvard, majoring in Chinese, graduating magna cum laude in 1989.
However, she showed interest in a career in acting from an early age, and moved to New York City to try her hand in the City's film industry. She succeeded in getting a little TV work in the early 90s, but got her first film job in the gangster movie Amongst Friends, on which she worked her way up the ladder behind the camera to eventually associate-produce the film, and, more importantly, was eventually cast as the female lead. The movie was forgettable, but Sorvino's performance was not, and attracted enough buzz to get her cast in two more movies, one a more prominent indie, Barcelona, the other her first Hollywood feature, Quiz Show, and her skillful performances brought her yet more attention.
An exceptionally poised and articulate young woman, she may have seemed inappropriate to play a loopy hooker, but Woody Allen took the chance, and her magnificent performance as the female lead in his Mighty Aphrodite proved her range as a performer and earned her an Oscar for best supporting actress.
Since winning the Oscar, Sorvino has continued to take a wide range of roles, including another stretch as Marilyn Monroe in Norma Jean & Marilyn, co-starring with Ashley Judd. Forays into action and horror, such as 1997's Mimic and 1998's The Replacement Killers show that Sorvino is not above being playful in the film roles she chooses.
However, what forever cemented her role in popular culture was her performance as charmingly dopey California beach girl Romy in Romy and Michele's High School Reunion, in which she and co-star Lisa Kudrow utter one hilarious absurdity after another.
