Marisa Tomei’s Outburst an ‘Inside Joke’

Moments after Marisa Tomei climbed out of her car last night at the DKNY fragrance launch party in the West Village, a TMZ videographer captured a seemingly annoyed Ms. Tomei, 42, yelling at one of the event organizers just outside Donna Karan’s Urban Zen store on Greenwich Street.

In the Web site’s clip, Ms. Tomei looked to have a major beef with the unnamed man, yelling at him to stop talking “bullshit” all the time. Finally seeing the camera catching the exchange, the actress flashed a mega-watt smile at the lens.

In reality, however, the Academy Award-winner was anything but miffed with the publicist. We just spoke with one of his colleagues, who was also at last night’s event, and he told us that the two are actually close friends.

“It’s just an inside joke between them,” the eyewitness explained. “They’re really, really old friends. They go way back.” He also confirmed that, by all accounts, Ms. Tomei was in a great mood at the celeb-stacked shindig.
