Debi Mazar has, it is safe to say, probably the most (the only?) hilarious story about how she realized she had come down with Covid. All we’ll say is that it involves losing her sense of smell in a somewhat … personal setting.
But that’s not the story.
Here’s the thing: Mazar currently stars alongside Hillary Duff in the critically acclaimed TV Land show “Younger.” But you may also know Debi Mazar as Sandy, a friend of Henry Hill’s mistress in “Goodfellas.” Maybe she’s more familiar to you from one of her many other roles in the 90s—in movies ranging from “The Doors” to “Malcolm X” to “Bullets Over Broadway” to “Batman Forever.” Her face might ring a bell from one of the five music videos she appeared in for her bestie, Madonna.
Or if you’re really old school, you might remember her moves as a b-girl on the seminal New York hip hop show Graffiti Rock (look for her at the 38-second mark).
However you recognize her, Debi Mazar is of course all of those things and more. These days the mostly-reformed wild child lives full time in Tuscany, where she moved just this year from Windsor Terrace with her husband and two daughters. The move capped a crazy 2020: These days, she is back in Brooklyn on her own while filming the seventh season of “Younger.” On this episode of “Brooklyn Magazine: The Podcast” we talk about all of that and more.
