Her first film credit was Martin Scorsese's Raging Bull in 1980, as Vikki LaMotta, the wife of Robert De Niro's lead character.

Later, she appeared as the villain Carrigan Crittenden in the 1995 film Casper and as Rose Donlan, wife of Harvey Keitel's corrupt cop in 1997's Cop Land. She reunited with De Niro for 2002's Analyze That, in which she played female Mafia boss Patti LoPresti.
