Michelle Pfeiffer biography (bio):
Pfeiffer's first major screen role was in 1982 in the film sequel, Grease 2. But it was not until 1983 when Pfeiffer co-starred with Al Pacino in Brian De Palma's gangster classic Scarface that she caught the attention of Hollywood. Over the course of the 1980s and 1990s, Pfeiffer starred in a string of box-office and critical hits including Ladyhawke, The Witches of Eastwick, Married to the Mob, Tequila Sunrise, The Russia House, Frankie and Johnny, Batman Returns, The Age of Innocence, Dangerous Minds, and One Fine Day. She won the British Academy Award for 1988's Dangerous Liaisons and the Silver Bear award at the Berlin International Film Festival in 1993 for Love Field.
Pfeiffer's performance as Susie Diamond in The Fabulous Baker Boys gained honours from the Hollywood Foreign Press, New York Film Critics, Los Angeles Film Critics, and the National Society of Film Critics and Board of Review. Critics compared Pfeiffer's performance, much known for her scorching rendition of "Makin' Whoopee" atop of a piano, to the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Rita Hayworth, and a young Katharine Hepburn. Film critic Pauline Kael raved that Pfeiffer's performance had "the grinning infectiousness of Carole Lombard and the radiance of the very young Lauren Bacall."
In 1995, Pfeiffer was given the Hasty Pudding Woman of the Year award by Harvard University for her contribution to the performing arts. The award, bestowed annually by the Hasty Pudding Theatricals society, is given to female performers deemed to have made a "lasting and impressive contribution to the world of entertainment." The award placed Pfeiffer among the ranks of Katharine Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, and Meryl Streep.
Since then, Pfeiffer has continued to maintain her status as one of the film world's reigning screen goddesses, despite working much less in recent years. In 2000, Pfeiffer starred with Harrison Ford in one of the biggest box office hits of the year, Robert Zemeckis's thriller What Lies Beneath. In 2001, she starred opposite Sean Penn in I Am Sam and in 2002 alongside Renée Zellweger and Robin Wright Penn in White Oleander, which earned her a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination as Best Supporting Actress.
After a long absence from the spotlight, Pfeiffer returned to acting in 2006. Her first round of projects teamed her with director Amy Heckerling in the romantic comedy I Could Never Be Your Woman (opposite Paul Rudd, released Summer 2006) as well as opposite Robert De Niro, Claire Danes, and Sienna Miller in the science fiction fantasy epic Stardust, due for a 2007 release. Pfeiffer will co-star in the film adaptation of the hit Broadway musical Hairspray as Velma Von Tussle. She will make a cameo appearance in The Prince and the Pauper, a film in which her sister Dedee stars. She is slated to receive her star on the "Hollywood Walk of Fame" in 2007.
