The Pfragrance of Pfeiffer and a "French Exit"

by Nathaniel R

"Henry Rose" comes in 5 scents

We expected to get Pfeiffer news this year with the upcoming publicity tours for both Avengers 4 and Maleficent 2 on the way but it appears it's not just cameos and supporting roles this year but a full-blown work schedule. In addition to those two films, she's just launched her fragrance line "Henry Rose" ($120 a bottle. Steep!) which we knew was coming but not quite when. What we didn't realize it's that it's a fully self-funded passion project (though LaPfeiffer declines to say how much money she spent). After realizing that the fragrance business was very non-forthcoming about ingredients, some of which can be toxic, damaging the environment or your health, she stopped wearing perfume for 10 years and created her own. The line of five different unisex fragrances is fully transparent and safe in a recyclable bottle; Pfans will think the name sounds familiar -- it's a portmanteau of the middle names of her kids.

But our passion for Pfeiffer is acting-based and there's news on that pfront, too. She plans to start work on a new film called French Exit this year. This is great news because it's a lead role in a character-driven film about a "tart, possessive" widow who moves her family from Upper East NYC to France to escape debts and scandal (shades of Blue Jasmine maybe? We should be so lucky!). Azazel Jacobs, who made The Lovers with Debra Winger a couple of years ago, is behind the project. He sure loves his iconic 80s stars so we, in turn, love him.

Queen Ingrith Tease

Since it's only (haha) 477 days until Maleficent 2 hits theaters, Michelle Pfeiffer gave us a sneak peek of her character Queen Ingrith on Instagram. We don't know if she's a fairy queen or just a regular queen yet but we hope a fairy queen because how many actresses can say they've played fairy royalty twice? (see also: Titania, Queen of the Fairies, in A Midsummer Night's Dream, 1999)
