"I don't really think in terms of what's commercial and what's not, because I'm a really bad judge of that. I look for something that doesn't offend me." --Michelle Pfeiffer to The New York Times, August 6, 1995.

"I'm pretty determined. I mean, there's really no reason I should be where I am. I was in a beauty pageant. Hel-LO! I was in 'Delta House'. I did 'The Hollywood Knights' and a really bad Aaron Spelling series. The person that could turn that around--It's perserverance, really." --Pfeiffer on her career to Us, August 1995.

"She sometimes picks wacky projects, but that's what makes her grow." --co-star Jack Nicholson quoted in Us, August 1995.

"Coming to terms with fame enabled me to draw really distinct and severe and thick lines around what I will and won't do. You have to do that because if you don't the lines are murky, and because this is about your person--it's not a product you're selling. You have to know which parts you can control and which parts you can't. Very few are controllable, but if you can grab on to the ones that are, it helps balance it out. I am very stingy about [publicity] and I am really a pain in the ass about it. But to me there's just no other way to have the kind of life that resembles a normal life." --Michelle Pfeiffer quoted in Interview, July 1994.

On viewing her work: "It's best for me to see a movie once when it's finished and not see it again. I'm just too critical." --Michelle Pfeiffer in Us, November 1993.
