Cathy Moriarty (born November 29, 1960) is an American actress.
Moriarty was born in The Bronx, the daughter of Irish Catholic immigrants; Catherine, a homemaker, and John Moriarty, a warehouse worker. Moriarty was raised in Yonkers, New York.
Her first film credit was Martin Scorsese's Raging Bull in 1980, as Vikki LaMotta, the wife of Robert De Niro's lead character. Her performance earned her a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. In 1981, she starred in the cult movie Neighbors, but then, due to a 1982 car accident that led to many back surgeries, she did not appear in another movie until 1987. In the 1990s, she had many supporting roles in popular films, including Kindergarten Cop and Soapdish. She also appeared opposite Andrew Dice Clay in the short-lived CBS sitcom Bless This House(1995). 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.
