Entries in Michelle Pfeiffer (178)


Pfeiffer, '65

We've been seeing this picture of La Pfeiffer our entire lives, whenever any magazine ran a profile that included pre-pfame pfotos. Now we have a brief story behind it -- another reminder that Michelle Pfeiffer's Instagram is the best unexpected actressexual gift of 2019. She writes:

Attitude much? My 1965 Mustang was stolen and I had just gotten it back. My dad thought it was a good time for a photo. NOT.


Maleficent Triptych

That's it. That's the post.

No, we kid. We need the close-up that matters and to talk trailer and costumes...

The Bening AND La Pfeiffer? In the same movie !?!

by Nathaniel R

Have you heard that news that Annette Bening and Michelle Pfeiffer have signed on as the leading ladies of a new feature film? If you've heard that news than you'll understand that I, Nathaniel, am typing this from heaven as I must have died and gone there for this to be true. Last thing I remember I was on a plane back to NYC (more on where I've been shortly) and then I was dead. Death by actressexuality. What a way to go. 

The future film what done me in is called Turn of Mind and it's based on the novel of the same name by Alice LaPlante. Gideon Raff (best known for creating the Israeli series that TV's Homeland is based on) will be directing the thriller with Doug Wright (Quills)  doing the screenplay. Annette Bening plays Dr Jennifer White, a retiree suffering from Alzheimers and suddenly accused of killing her longtime best friend Amanda (Michelle Pfeiffer) and unable to remember whether she actually committed the crime...

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.
