Who's Met Michelle Pfeiffer

For someone so gorgeous, she seems very down to Earth, and cool. Has anyone met her? I'm still trying to find out what cult she was part of.

by Anonymousreply 34906/06/2015

I did not meet her, but I stood next to her on the street once. She looked like an 85-lb dried apple doll. Oh, and thin hair.

I've heard that she was so cold to Winona Ryder on the set of "The Age of Innocence" that Winonan thought she hated her. I've also heard that if you even mention Grease 2 to her in a phone conversation, she'll hang up on you.

It's true, R5, that Michelle hung up on Nana Mouskouri who had asked her about Grease 2, but to be fair to Michelle, Nana thought she was calling Maxwell Caulfield but mis-dialed and called Michelle three times in a row. Irritating!

June 1993 during her acceptance speech at the 17th Annual Women In Film Luncheon, she felt the need to comment on roles certain actresses were taking.

Michelle began, 'So this is the year of the woman. Well, yes, it's actually been a good year for women. Demi Moore was sold to Robert Redford for $1 million. Uma Thurman went to Mr De Niro for $40000 and just three years ago Richard Gere bought Julia Roberts for -what was it- $3000? I'd say that was real progress.'

Both Demi Moore and Sherry Lansing, head of Paramount Studios, and producer of Indecent Proposal, were present in the room.

Michelle continued, 'Fortunately our values as individuals and women are not determined by our cultures but by ourselves. I know that I am here because many of you have been here before me creating my opportunity.'

by Anonymousreply 5210/12/2011

I found it. Heaton didn't say it was Pfeiffer, and she did apologize to Michelle.


Patricia Heaton still isn't naming names, exactly, but she is begging the pardon of fellow actress Michelle Pfeiffer after suggesting on TV that the 44-year-old star had a face-lift.

You'll recall Heaton told David Letterman last week that a "very famous actress" on the "cover of a big fashion magazine" was denying she'd had any nips or tucks - even though Heaton claimed to have interviewed the actress' plastic surgeon. Pfeiffer happens to be on the cover of the new Harper's Bazaar, where she talks about her fear of plastic surgery and Botox treatments.

Yesterday, Heaton said she was just trying to be funny. "In an attempt at being humorous, I made statements regarding an actress and plastic surgery that were completely fabricated," the "Everybody Loves Raymond" cast member told us. She added that it is "erroneous" to construe she was talking about Pfeiffer.

"I have since spoken with Michelle, and she has very graciously accepted my apology," said Heaton.

Pfeiffer's spokeswoman seemed satisfied with the apology, but warned: "This is serious. I don't want this to just be a joke that went awry."

She did do drugs.

Unfortunately, being in the phony Hollywood game for so long wears on a person, even someone who was more 'real' and sensitive than most celebrities. She always seemed a bit uneasy about Hollywood, no wonder she is happy to be in crap in exchange for staying low profile and for the check.

Years ago, while I was doing my laundry, a friend stopped by my house to return something I'd loaned him. He was accompanied by a woman he introduced only as "Michelle", without mentioning her last name. She was vaguely familiar, but in the "I've seen her around town" way. She was fairly quiet and polite, but her few additions to conversation were amusing. I liked her, especially since she volunteered to pair my socks.

Weeks later, I saw a photo of Pfeiffer on a magazine cover, and immediately recognized her. My friend still teases me about having a celebrity help me with the laundry.

I never met her again.

They met at an art supply store, R75. If I recall correctly, she had asked him about his experience with brushes they were both looking at.

Great gossip, R79. I can understand how a celebrity would be freaked out by a fear of stalkers. It seems perfectly reasonable to me. A few questions:

(1) Did you meet her sister Dee Dee in 1989?

(2) Is your boyfriend gay(just in case you are a straight female posting)?

(3) Any more descriptions of Michelle Pfeiffer's personality your ex boyfriend gave of her? Quirks, behaviors, emotions, etc.? What was the general impression you had of her based upon what he said?

But I'd still like to know about her personality. She strikes me as being a rather sensitive and hurt person, which is unusual and appealing for a star.

by Anonymousreply 9411/14/2011

I still think Michelle's hiding something.

Dee Dee reminds me of a hooker. I don't know why. There is just something off about her. She looks like somebody who would be into drugs.

Michelle does come across as really shy, which is so damn weird for someone who knocks every performance she gives out of the park. She can deliver hilarious lines with little hesitation. I notice this with a lot of performers. They seem devoid of personality publicly, but in their films they steal the show.

Being that she is the most gorgeous woman in the world, I'd be surprised if she didn't have stalkers. She should have been the one having people shoot the President for her.

It's amazing that she said, (like a million others), that David E. Kelly is painfully quiet, and hard as fuck to get a word out of him. Maybe this is why they get along.

She is shit at choosing roles. The ones she turned down are infamous. If she had worked more, she'd be right up their with Meryl Streep. Pfeiffer obviously made a pact with the devil. She can do anything, and is drop dead gorgeous. It's funny that she hates her beauty, and is about the only person to complain about it, and not come off like a snob. People know that she's beautiful. There's no denying it.

I know she's a feminist, which makes me respect her even more. The woman is the handyman in her house for Christ's sake. I know someone who was in a yoga class with her, but said nothing. Michelle was sitting there with everyone else, like she wasn't a celebrity.

Anyway, it's amazing that this woman who looks like way that she does, has managed to keep tabloids, and the paparazzi at bay. People know very little about her, which again, brings me back to saying that there's something behind all of that. She can play psychotic on screen at the drop of a hat. She must be pulling it from somewhere.

Hey person who whose boyfriend house sat -- did you meet her? Did you stay in her house? I'd be going through all her shit. She wasn't married then, so I guess this was truly "her" home. None of that bullshit children's crap. All Michelle! She no longer lives in LA. She's got a farm, and a billion animals.

r97, that went straight-to-dvd. It was not made for television originally. Then she had the "I Could Never Be Your Woman" film with Paul Rudd, that was never released, and went straight-to-dvd too. It was the first film she did after being away for a considerable amount of years. She just did another one "Welcome To People" that seems to never be coming out.

Since her "return", she's done:

2005 - I Could Never Be Your Woman (straight to dvd)

2007 - Hairspray (a HIT)

2007 - Stardust (a film that basically no one saw - FLOP)

2009 - Personal Effects (straight to television)

2009 - Cheri (FLOP)

Basically, she's been in one hit movie in the last 6 years, and she wasn't even the star, and I'm not sure how many people even recognized her.

Since 2009, she has done the following, yet to be released:

2011 - New Year's Eve - Dir. Gary Marshall, huge ensemble cast with separate stories, Michelle made herself look ugly.

2011 - Welcome To People - was suppose to be a big deal from a famous guy who had written his first film. Has not yet been released, and seems DOA already.

2011 - Dark Shadows - Tim Burton, released next year.

She went to my high school in Orange County and my history teacher had her as a student and hated her. According to him, she was a class bully who had a couple weaker students that she would pick on. She was constantly disciplined for tormenting other students.

I remember Pfeiffer mentioning in interviews how she was an angry hell-raiser when he was younger. At least she owned up to it. I assume that means she's changed in adulthood.

Michelle did in fact admit to being a discipline problem in her youth. I honestly can't see her being mean or unpleasant today. She seems so down-to-Earth, and kind. Not full of herself at all. I too, believe something happened in her upbringing. She really keeps things very basic when talking about her father. I believe she called him a disciplinarian. She got very teary-eyed this month when speaking about her mother, and how she encouraged her to follow her dreams. This was on the red carpet to an interviewer. She never really talks about her. I simply cannot believe the media has let her off the hook when it comes to her private life. She definitely made a pact with the devil. I seriously want to know the name of that cult she was in. Maybe that's why she's so quiet. Maybe she's afraid of them still.

r134, in families that a bit dysfunctional, they often don't show what they're like behind closed doors. Am I the only one who thinks Michelle has an eating disorder? I know she used to smoke, but smoking won't make you that thin.

She's always made fun of her duck lips.

I still have never understood how some actors are just natural at what they do. They can turn it on and off effortlessly. This is what's so maddening about Michelle. Most of the time you are either beautiful and talentless in Hollywood, or talented and a dog. She has it all, and she was never this over-educated being who went and studied acting for years. She did go and take classes, but she didn't devote her entire life to the subject. I still don't know how she actually got into the profession, but she did study under a known actress. She went to a community college for a year, and was a bag girl at a local supermarket for awhile. She doesn't come from a privileged background.

Does anyone know what her parents look like? I've never seen a photograph.

R95, I have a few comments/questions about your post:

What else did your friend say about how she acted at the yoga class(besides not acting like she was a star)? Standoffish, kind, weird, etc.?

[quote]Michelle does come across as really shy, which is so damn weird for someone who knocks every performance she gives out of the park. She can deliver hilarious lines with little hesitation. I notice this with a lot of performers. They seem devoid of personality publicly, but in their films they steal the show.

Yes, acting almost seems like living a double life(especially regarding 'stars'). But sometimes it's like the false personality doesn't end when off the set. It really destabilizes the building of a core personality. It's got to be an odd life to have that light switch mentality.

[quote]She is shit at choosing roles.


[quote]he can do anything, and is drop dead gorgeous. It's funny that she hates her beauty, and is about the only person to complain about it, and not come off like a snob.

Agreed again.

[quote]I still think Michelle's hiding something.....Anyway, it's amazing that this woman who looks like way that she does, has managed to keep tabloids, and the paparazzi at bay. People know very little about her, which again, brings me back to saying that there's something behind all of that. She can play psychotic on screen at the drop of a hat. She must be pulling it from somewhere.

What do you think she could be hiding from her past?

And yes, she is pretty private. I think there is an inner tension and intensity there that is very appealing, she is not a shallow person. My impression of her is that she is a person who felt denigrated, and maybe even has some old emotional wounds related to love or something. Maybe an odd family dynamic that still hurts her.

She was on Piers Morgan recently, but he was gone for the Diamond Jubilee and Sanjay Gupta did the actual interview. Gupta and her husbands are friends after having worked on a project together. He got quite a bit of information out of her, likely because she knew him before she went on the air. She never would have been on with Piers Morgan.

She has not had a face lift, but said she was not opposed to doing it later if she thought it was necessary. Similar comments to the ones that she made in the magazine article.

The only problem that I have with her is that she has become a vegan for health reasons because President Clinton did. Her rationale was that he was very smart and if he thought it was a good idea, she'd look into it. I don't think veganism is particularly healthy long term and I think Clinton looks bad. But I don't think she ever had an eating disorder. She is very disciplined about exercise. She said she doesn't like it but knows it is necessary. She said that anymore if she skips a few days, she starts to feel aches and pains.

Peter Horton supposedly got her out of a cult years ago, like maybe the late 70s or early 80s. He was her first husband. She never talks about it as far as I know. She admits being obnoxious in high school and a discipline problem. Maybe she just grew up.

She even has massive lines on her forehead. You'd think she'd be botoxed to death. She really looks everyday her 55 years. No doubt she had a nose job, but it seems that it stopped there. Wonder why. Big tits could have helped her, but she never got implants. Maybe all the time she took off, staying home got her used to looking like crap.

"While taking acting classes in Los Angeles, the insecure actress was lured by a seemingly friendly couple that operated a vegetarian cult where, according to Pfeiffer, some brainwashing did occur. She was rescued by fellow actor and classmate Peter Horton, whom she married in 1981. Even decades after her induction in the veggie cult, Pfeiffer refused to elaborate on the details of what happened."

by Anonymousreply 19608/30/2013

r196, exactly what it states. Her first husband basically saved her. He was also doing a film that had a cult theme, and flew her with him while he did research with experts. It was finally what woke her up. I believe she gave them most of the money she made too. She had stated that she didn't believe in men coming to rescue of women, but thank her husband for basically saving her life. Barbara Walters asked her about it in a 1992 interview, where she was the biggest bitch whoever bitched. She was obviously in a really bad place and was about to retire from the business. A few years later, she was her bubbly self. I don't see an ego when I see her in interviews. She accepts and jokes about her age. I find that a lot of actresses who know that they're good at what they do, have no issue with how old they are anymore, people like Meryl Streep too.

Michelle really looks her age in interviews she doing for her new film. I saw her this week. She looks really old on screen too. She said a few years ago that it's hard to watch herself on screen, not only because she thinks her performance is not up to scratch, but also because she's watching herself age on screen.

It's really strange to see an actress with serious lines on her forehead like she has. Gary Marshall said, as well as herself, that she hates being beautiful. Maybe it's some sort of rebellion. We're so used to actresses botoxed and fillers to erase their lines to the point where Photoshop isn't even needed. Seeing wrinkles and lines is shocking today. She took so much time off, I wouldn't be surprised if she just got into the habit of not caring about the way she looks. Apparently, she's really into carpentry. I'd say that you don't have to get glammed up for that.

She really does seem like an insanely nice person.

Interesting. I always thought that Pfeiffer was one of the weaker aspects of LIAISONS - her anguish in the latter scenes seemed superficial (though I compared her at the time to the actress who played the role onstage and was riveting). McGillis could have been fine in the role - wonder what Kael's issue was.

I like Pfeiffer much of the time, but I don't find that she always has great chemistry with others. Jeff Bridges is an exception in BAKER BOYS, but there was zero heat between her and Daniel Day-Lewis in AGE OF INNOCENCE and with George Clooney in that rom-com they did.

BTW, is she naturally thin? She says she has sat around and gained weight eating, then starts exercising again. She said she found out she had dangerously high cholesterol, which is the reason she went Vegan, which helped get it down.

She's stayed pretty much apolitical through her career, but right after 911, she did an interview with Charlie Rose where he tried to get her to admit to having traditional/conservative family values, which she admitted to, but quickly followed up that she and her husband were not conservative politically. I liked how she was quick to point that out, and came across militant on the mention. She supported Obama and was invited to the White House correspondents dinner. She presented at the Trevor Awards. She just recently talked about gay marriage, but you can tell she tries to stay out of discussing politics.

A gay man got her into the industry. I think he was a hairdresser.

She said that she was hardly at school but passed without issue, but that she's basically a product of the LA education system, which she said sucks.

"Well, this has been a very good year for women. Demi Moore was sold to Robert Redford for $1 million. Uma Thurman went for $40,000 to Mr. De Niro, while just a few years ago, Richard Gere bought Julia Roberts for - what was it - $3,000? I'd say that was real progress."

She was signed for three movies which were all shelved over the course of the last two years. It's sad too because she was waiting for both her kids to leave home for college so she could go back to work full-time. The last child left in late 2013, and she announced that she was now going to work more. She's recently admitted that she can't choose good roles and she regrets turning down which turned to be Oscar winning roles. She always said no regrets for twenty years. She's finally recognized the reality of what she did and how she really feels.

I saw "The Family" -- she looked awful. She has a lot of time now. She should go get work done, something she says she's not against and is thinking about it the older she gets.

There's something about her that makes me want to meet her. She was a bully in high school. She beat up people for other people. Her personality seems just the opposite on interviews, even in interviews twenty years ago. Her and her skanky murderer sister hated each other.

She comes from a working class family. She wouldn't tell anyone that she wanted to be an actress because she thought it sounded arrogant. She lacks self-confidence, which even Jack Nicholson said.

A lot of people think she doesn't like them because she's so quiet. Winona Ryder was one of these people. They ended up being close friends. Cher went clubbing with Michelle and she said that Michelle say slone not saying a word.

Has anyone seen what her brother looks like? Her sister looks so different from herself, almost like they share only one parent. That isn't the case apparently. Michelle hates her lips and was nicknamed a duck in school. She used to beat people up over it. If you see her from a low angle, she appears to have a cleft underneath her upper lip.

I've never heard about Winona having any fallings out with anyone apart from ex-BFF Gwyneth Paltrow (unless you count her ex-boyfriends as well). Her co-stars seem to like her, she's always hugging people in photos, she even became friendly with Gary Oldman eventually (there was a bit of tension on the set of Dracula, but that was before he quit drinking)

Worked with her on a movie. She was nice, professional. Very serious when she is working, a bit intense. Very focused. Quiet, polite. Can't tell you more than that, she is a very to herself type person.

I started on the show and was on it for a while before I actually saw her. When I did it was unexpected. She came around a corner as I was leaving the stage and she was walking in with her "glam crew". When I saw her I gasped a little. She was that striking in person, I wasn't ready for it, very beautiful in person. Definitely screen goddess type beauty.

I worked with her on a film (I do costume work). She is TEENY, but was nothing but lovely with the staff. This was awhile ago-she didn't look like she had had any work done, save her nose job, which, to me, is obvious.

Most rhinoplasty makes people's faces look strange to me, but, like most plastic surgery, it films better than it looks in person.

Don't clothes always look a bit smaller on mannequins etc.? I've seen the suit Jack Nicholson wore in The Departed (at the Warner Bros. Studios tourist attraction in Burbank) and that didn't look very big even though Jack's definitely not slim anymore.

The costume wasn't on a mannequin, it was displayed on a flat surface.

Maybe that's what made it look smaller.

I don't think she's been adventurous in her acting choices. She turned down THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS because because she was uneasy with the subject matter even though director Jonathan Demme wanted her do it and begged her.

by Anonymousreply 28203/08/2015

Married to the Mob to Dangerous Liaisons. Grease 2 to Scarface. There's been a lot of variety in Pfeiffer's resume. Even the ill-fate Dark Shadows was an attempt at something different. She got stuck in a rut of TV movie type material in the wake of Dangerous Minds but not anymore.

As I've said on other threads, she's way too beautiful to play Clarice. Even deranged, psychotic and oppressive men would be thunderstruck by MP and bow before her cool beauty. They would get in line. Jodie looked more haunted and hunted and normal. MP triggers a totally different reaction. All those cops in the elevator would have been kissing Clarice's ass!

She should do a stint on a Homeland or House of Cards and try and rebuild an audience. People don't seek her out, and she left, so she has no power as a woman in her 50's. Robin Wright re-asserted herself so it is possible. But there will be no studio films top lined by Michelle, Jessica, Sissy, Cher, Sue, etc.; that elder brigade is out of wattage.

Michelle has no projects on IMDB. The Family made money overseas but was a US flop. White Oleander was right when she stopped being good.

by Anonymousreply 32403/09/2015

People write Michelle Pfeiffer off as an actress. Her beauty plays a big part in that, but there's no question that she has a larger range than Jodie. Somebody said on this site that Jodie is the original Hilary Swank, winning twice over other actresses more talented. I found that a bit harsh, but I understand what they're getting at.

Jodie couldn't lead a comedy like Michelle did in Married to the Mob. Jodie can't do an ice queen like Michelle. Jodie can't do vulnerability the way Michelle can. Jodie can't do 'bordering on madness' like Michelle can (Catwoman) Jodie can't do evil, conniving, manipulative woman from hell like Michelle did in White Oleander.

Jodie CAN play an intellectual better than Michelle can; Foster is an actress whose intelligence always pierces through (and I'm sorry, but she did not deserve her Nell Oscar nod).

I agree that Michelle Pfeiffer should really explore herself more as a thespian, she has always been quite vocal about her doubts as an actress and always thinking she's "really bad," despite the obvious truth.

by Anonymousreply 32503/09/2015

MARRIED TO THE MOB (1988) was three years before THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS (1991). Interesting that 1988 was also the same year as THE ACCUSED, which won Foster her first Best Actress Oscar. That same year, Pfeiffer was nominated in Supporting for DANGEROUS LIAISONS but lost to Geena Davis in THE ACCIDENTAL TOURIST. Then three years later, Foster won again for LAMBS.

by Anonymousreply 32603/09/2015

Except she has not been good in several years, so this seems to be projecting a lot. I really do believe that some actresses have a run and then it's over. When was my last hit besides Paddington Bear? Michelle WAS a good actress.

She always says she "still has her best performance in her", so time will tell. Michelle simply isn't interested in pursuing quality or challenging work anymore. It's a pity, and she is her career's worst enemy. These days when she does select a film its fluff like New Years Eve or The Family.

"Tequila Sunrise" is the only film she hated making. She has a reputation for being one of the kindest and willing person on set. I don't know exactly what went down on that particular film, but I think it was the direction/director that was the problem.

Anybody with Fisher Stevens gossip, do dish. It's mind boggling to me Michelle dated him for so long. But then again, in interviews she's mentioned that she doesn't go for "pretty" men, she likes her men average looking but with charismatic personalities. It explains her choice in men (John Malkovich, Fisher, and now David E. Kelly [who Michelle happily remarked has scars on his face in an interview once, she likes that kinda stuff])
