RATE AND COMMENT

BIOGRAPHY

While fame had certainly been good to her, actress Michelle Pfeiffer rarely went out of her way to revel in her celebrity. Aside from her film and television roles, Pfeiffer was famously known for guarding her privacy, much like many of the characters she had portrayed on screen, most notably the icy Elvira, mistress to a Cuban drug smuggler, in the iconic "Scarface" (1983). Even her desire to subvert her timeless, ethereal beauty by often appearing in public dressed in jeans, T-shirt and baseball cap failed in the face of twice making People magazine's "50 Most Beautiful People" list. Luckily for Pfeiffer, she possessed acting talent to match her stunning looks, giving Oscar-nominated performances in "Dangerous Liaisons" (1988), "The Fabulous Baker Boys" (1989) and "Love Field" (1992). But it was her offbeat turn as Catwoman in "Batman Returns" (1992) that firmly established Pfeiffer as a bona fide star. From there, she starred in the hit inner city drama "Dangerous Minds" (1995) and had a strong turn in the Hitchcockian thriller "What Lies Beneath" (1999). After starring in "I Am Sam" (2001) and earning acclaim for "White Oleander" (2002), Pfeiffer took a hiatus from acting to focus on raising her children with husband, television producer David E. Kelley. Though she returned to the screen with lower key roles in "Hairspray" (2007), "Stardust" (2007) and "Cheri" (2009), Pfeiffer never lost the radiance and chops that made her a star.
