Acting Prominence

After appearing in the film, Scorsese continued to gain more projects as she quickly became an in-demand star. She was cast in the film entitled “Boxing Helena”, a 1993 mystery thriller film directed by Jennifer Lynch, starring Sherilyn Fenn and Julia Sands, and follows the story of a surgeon who has a growing obsession with a woman. As a result, he decides to amputate her limbs and keep her captive inside her home. The film received a lot of notoriety, and after its release attracted a critical backlash, failing in the box office.

Her next project would be in the series “NYPD Blue”, a police procedural set in the titular New York City, following the story of the fictional 15th Precinct detective squad in the area. It previously held the record for longest running primetime one hour drama by ABC until it was surpassed by “Grey’s Anatomy” in 2016. The show received a lot of critical acclaim for its realistic portrayal of the cast’s professional and personal life. However, it also gained controversy for its depiction of alcoholism and nudity.

Sudden Retirement

Near the end of her acting career, Nicolette had a few more notable projects. One of these was the film “Aspen Extreme”, a drama film about two ski buddies who move to another place seeking a better life. However, the two quickly experience numerous troubles threatening their relationship, while they train for an upcoming ski competition. The film was called the “Top Gun” on the Ski Slopes by publication “Seattle Times”. She also made an appearance in the popular medical drama series entitled “ER”, which aired on NBC.

The show ran for a total of 15 seasons and followed the life of the staff at the emergency room (ER) of a fictional General Hospital located in Chicago. It is the second longest running medical drama in US primetime television history behind “Grey’s Anatomy”. During its run, the show won 23 Primetime Emmy Awards and a Peabody Award. In the late 1990s, her acting activity started to slow down, and eventually she faded away from acting projects, no longer taking any. Her sudden disappearance wasn’t noticed until many years later, when people remembered her fame during the early-1990s, that dissipated as quickly as it start.

Personal Life and Social Media

For her personal life, it is known that Scorsese began a relationship with actor Sean Penn during the 1990s, and the two were spotted together numerous times in red carpet events, including at the International Rock Awards. They were reportedly together for several years, but their relationship eventually ended, without much reason as to why it did so.  Afterwards, she began dating model Antonio Sabato Jr which was short lived, and she then had a relationship with singer Billy Duffy. The two allegedly have a daughter together, but it hasn’t been confirmed.

One of the reasons there is very little information about her is due to the lack of any social media presence. She does not have any online accounts on major websites such as Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. There are speculations that she is related to prominent director Martin Scorsese, but there is no proof that they are related, only having a similar surname. No one has really made a conscious effort to track her down and find out her life after her acting career. It is likely that she retired from acting, using the money she had earned towards other endeavors.
