The actress then had a global blockbuster hit with the 2007 animated film Ratatouille, in which she voiced the character Colette, a no-nonsense, trailblazing feminist chef.
In 2011, Garofalo starred on the CBS drama Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior. The following year, she starred in the Acorn Theater production Russian Transport as well as the film comedy General Education.
Around this same time, Garofalo was in the news upon realizing that she had unknowingly been married to Big Bang Theory producer Rob Cohen for 20 years—the result of an earlier ceremony at a drive-through chapel in Las Vegas. (The two were drunk at the time and didn't believe the ceremony was binding.)
Garofalo has continued to work as a stand-up comedian in a variety of formats in recent years, and has spoken openly about the Hollywood double standard when it comes to older actresses and women in general.
Garofalo has several tattoos, some prominent, that sport words like "Valor" and "Truth."
