She was in a 12-year relationship with actor Harvey Keitel, whom she met while living in Paris. They have one daughter, Stella Keitel (b. 1985). Bracco and Keitel fought a lengthy custody battle over Stella, resulting in Bracco’s depression, a loss of acting roles, and $2 million in legal fees.

During the audition process for The Sopranos, David Chase wanted Bracco to read for the lead female role of Carmela Soprano. However, Bracco had read the script and was drawn to the part of psychiatrist Dr. Jennifer Melfi. Bracco felt strongly enough about her ability and desire to play this part that she arranged a meeting with Chase and talked him into letting her have a chance as Dr. Melfi. It netted her three consecutive nominations for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series at the Emmy Awards in 1999, 2000, and 2001, and at the Golden Globe awards for Best TV Actress in a Drama in 2000, 2001, and 2002.

Bracco also appeared on a season 6 episode of Throwdown! with Bobby Flay, as a guest judge for the ravioli throwdown.

Eventually, Italian director and novelist Lina Wertmüller gave Bracco a small part in the film Camorra. “She dressed me up like an Italian woman of no means. A street woman clad in disheveled clothes, hair unkempt and all that, and threw me on the set. She was so creative. I mean, Lina accentuated my eyes with dark make-up, the way Sophia Loren used to appear in those epic roles in the ’60s. And talk about talent. She’s so bright and perceptive. I mean, she’s just fantastic. And yes, I learned a lot from her. She’s a master of her profession, and I’ve been blessed not only with her, but also with so many masters,” recounted Bracco to Daniel Simone during a 2007 interview. The experience inspired Bracco to pursue acting.
