Creator / Michelle Pfeiffer

Michelle Marie Pfeiffer (born April 29, 1958) was the It Girl of film in the 1980s and 1990s, having become famous through her earlier roles like the sequel Grease 2 and Scarface. She was inactive in the film industry for a few years, having taken time off to spend time with her children and husband, David E. Kelley. Recently, however, she has been in a rather quick career revival, having picked up four films during 2011-2012, including the all-star movie Dark Shadows. She continues to work in television and film.
    Films she has starred in with pages on TV Tropes: 

Her work provides examples of:

  • The Cameo: Has an uncredited one on a Picket Fences episode (her husband was the producer).
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: In some of her films. I Am Sam for one, where she starts off as a pretentious bitch and becomes, well, much kinder in the end. Her role in Dark Shadows could be considered this too, as her attitude toward the protagonist becomes much warmer as the movie goes on. It was also attempted in Scarface.
  • Hidden Depths: If anyone watches her musical roles, they'll find that her singing voice is lovely.
  • Shout-Out: Gets name-dropped in two separate hit songs from 2014-2015: "Riptide" by Vance Joy and "Uptown Funk" by Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson.
  • Whip It Good: She is quite skilled with a whip. She did her own whip scenes as Catwoman in Batman Returns.
