He is the last of the three sons born to Vivienne and renowned surgeon Anthony Federico De Palma. From 1979 to 1983, he was married to actress Nancy Allen. His second marriage was to producer Gale Anne Hurd, with whom he fathered a child.

Over the years, he has been accused on multiple occasions of misogyny for how he often depicts graphic violence against women in his films.
That's what noir feels like to me. It feels like some kind of recurring dream, with very strong archetypes operating. You know, the guilty girl being pursued, falling, all kinds of stuff that we see in our dreams all the time.Brian De Palma
