Drea de matteo dating
Out of it emerges Drea de Matteo, the 30-year-old Italian-American actress who plays Adriana in the hit television series The Sopranos. "Hurrying into the room, she flings various outfits - all from Filth Mart, the vintage clothes shop she owns in Manhattan - on to the back of a nearby chair.
She is all but buried under armfuls of clothes and apologising profusely. "I'm so bad at this," she whispers, and slumps down beside me, before admitting to a hangover: "There's nothing else to do in this town, and we'd just wrapped this movie so we had a few cocktails..." She trails off with a wan smile.
By contrast, de Matteo describes herself as a tomboy who hates high heels.
Today her outfit is one of contrived indifference: a tight faded vintage T-shirt and high-waisted dirty jeans.
Because I grew up in a very Italian neighborhood in Queens, even though we grew up in a fancy suburb, there was a lot of Mafia.

De Matteo, is a furniture manufacturer who was owner and CEO of Avery Boardman and Carlyle.
After graduating from the Loyola School, she studied at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, originally hoping to become a director, not an actress.
She had the starring role in Abel Ferrara's R Xmas for which she received some very positive reviews.
In 2004, de Matteo won an Emmy for Best Supporting Actress (Drama) for her role as Adriana on The Sopranos (season 5) and was nominated for a Golden Globe the same year, for the same role.
