Cindy Margolis: Queen of the Internet
5'7" Margolis couldn't be happier talking to her cyberbuds on her two-year-old site (annual membership: $29.95). "I can be on at 3 a.m. in my pajamas, with my cats bugging me, and I don't need a makeup artist or anything," she says.
The self-made model/actress, who began posing for her own line of greeting cards while studying business at California State University at Northridge in the late '80s and did a turn as one of the robotic androids armed with shooting bras in 1997's Austin Powers, has "the all-American look," says M.J. Roark, director of programming for Extra Online. "Cindy's just Mom, Pop and apple pie."
In the era of less-is-too-much in beauty care, Margolis is unabashedly product-oriented. "Makeup artists are always giving me their stuff," she enthuses. "My favorite thing is free stuff. I'll take anything." Her boyfriend, Guy Starkman, 27, an L.A. restaurateur, genially complains, "She's taken over the bathroom counter." He has also gotten used to Cindy's obsession with oil-blotting paper. "On our first date we were at a Lakers game, and I was trying to blot without getting caught," she says. "It was embarrassing when he said, 'What are you doing?' But now I blot around him all the time." Her biggest beauty flaw, says the longtime San Fernando Valley resident, is her posture when she's not in front of the camera. "Sometimes I see myself in the mirror, and it's 'Oh, God!' But the minute you stick out your butt a little bit and suck it in, you go from a 6 to a 10. If only I could walk through life posing," she says with a sigh. "It really makes a difference."
