Her father, Harry Mazar, was born in Latvia.
Her parents annulled their marriage shortly after she was born. ”I didn’t have a conventional upbringing, that’s for sure,” Debi said in an interview. ”My mom had me at 15. She was single for a while, very strong, independent, kind of my hero.”
Friendship with Madonna
She is a close friend of Madonna. They met in a nightclub located in New York City. Later, Madonna hired Debi to do her makeup for the music video for “Everybody.”
”I met her when she came to New York, and we became dear friends, and then she was like, ‘I’m gonna do a video,’ and I was like, ‘I do makeup. I’ll do your makeup,’” Mazar explained for HuffPost in 2015. She added: ”And it was very much like that, and then she became a huge star.”
”When we met, she kind of looked like a punk rock midwestern girl,” Debi recalled. ”I plucked her eyebrows a little bit and gave her eyeliner.”

The film also stars Robert De Niro, Paul Sorvino, Lorraine Bracco, and Joe Pesci. It grossed more than $47 million on the box office. The film is based on New York reporter Nicholas Pileggi’s book Wiseguy.
”I think what we had to snort was called inositol, which is a laxative,” Mazar said on PeopleTV’s Couch Surfing regarding what was in the white powder she and Ray Liotta snorted on set. ”It felt really good.”
In 1992, she portrayed Peg in Malcolm X.
In 1995, Debi performed as one half of Sugar & Spice alongside Drew Barrymore in Batman Forever.
