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. Eventually, however, she began a rather quick career revival, picking up four films during 2011-2012, including the all-star movie Dark Shadows. She continues to work in television and film.

Selected filmography:


Her work provides examples of:

  • Old Shame: Considers several of her films (specifically Grease 2, A Thousand Acres, and I Could Never Be Your Woman) to be disappointments. She has also gone on record stating that as a rule she only watches her films once, and that is it. Averted with One Fine Day, which didn't do well but she believes it's a good movie nonetheless.
  • 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.
  • Star-Derailing Role: Grease 2 infamously almost cost her a role in Scarface.
  • Those Two Actors: Did four films with Robert De Niro - Stardust, New Year's Eve, Malavita and The Wizard of Lies. She joked that she was excited to work with him the first two times...only to discover they had no scenes together.
  • Whip It Good: She is quite skilled with a whip. She did her own whip scenes as Catwoman in Batman Returns.
