Michelle Marie Pfeiffer (born 1958) was the It Girl of film in the 80s and 90s, having gotten famous through her earlier roles like the sequel ''Film/{{Grease 2}}'' and ''Film/{{Scarface 1983}}''. She was inactive in the film industry for a few years, having taken time off to spend time with her children and husband, DavidEKelley. Recently, however, she has been in a rather quick career revival, having picked up four films during 2011-2012, including the all-star movie ''Film/DarkShadows''.

!!Provides examples of:

* CareerResurrection: Got the role in ''Film/{{Scarface 1983}}'', despite ''Film/{{Grease 2}}''.
* DefrostingIceQueen: In some of her films. ''Film/IAmSam'' for one, where she starts off as a pretentious bitch and becomes, well, much kinder in the end. Her role in ''Film/DarkShadows'' could be considered this too, as her attitude towards the protagonist becomes much warmer as the movie goes on.
** It was attempted in Scarface.
* FemmeFatale: In ''Film/BatmanReturns'', and possibly considered this in ''Film/{{Wolf}}'' too.
* IceQueen: ''Film/{{Hairspray}}'', ''Film/{{Scarface}}'', ''Film/WhiteOleander''.
* StarDerailingRole: ''Film/{{Grease 2}}'' infamously almost cost her a role in ''Film/{{Scarface 1983}}''.
* WhipItGood: She is quite skilled with a whip. She did her own whip scenes as Catwoman in ''Film/BatmanReturns''.
