Did You Know?


... that Michelle's first big movie role was as the love song warbling leader of the Pink Ladies who's looking for a "Cool Rider" in Grease 2. To learn more visit our Tribute to Grease.

... that in the beginning of her career Michelle was often dismissed by many as being just another pretty face. Critics had to stop and take notice though after seeing her Supporting Actress nominated performance as the naïve and ultimately doomed Madame de Tourvel in Dangerous Liaisons. This was the role that elevated her career and convinced movie executives that she was talented as well as beautiful. To learn more visit our Tribute to Dangerous Liaisons.

... that the same year that Michelle wowed critics with her performance in Dangerous Liaisons, she wowed audiences with her sultry musical rendering of "Making Whoopee" atop a grand piano in The Fabulous Baker Boys. It would be the combination of these two roles in 1989 that would permanently elevate her to "A List Actress" status. Ironically, this was a part she nearly didn't get since she was a last minute replacement for popstar Madonna.

... that Michelle was second choice for yet another role that she ultimately made her own ... Catwoman in Batman Returns. She only was awarded the coveted scene stealing super feline villain role when Annette Bening had to bow out due to pregnancy. To learn more visit our Tribute to Batman and our Tribute to Annette Bening.

... that Michelle is married to producer/writer David E. Kelly, best known for his popular lawyer shows like Boston Legal. Michelle appeared in one of the movies for which David wrote the screenplay, To Gillian on Her 37th Birthday.

... Just for fun: Here's Michelle Pfeiffer competing in the 1978 Miss California pageant. The announcer notes, "She wants to be an actress".
