she landed her breakthrough role in Scarface in 1983. Pfeiffer earned an Oscar nomination (for best actress) for the film The Fabulous Baker Boys (1989). Her later films include Batman Returns and Hairspray. Pfeiffer has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. She's married to television producer David E. Kelley.

Early Career

Born on April 29, 1958 in Santa Ana, California, Michelle Pfeiffer is known for her stunning looks and versatility, and has enjoyed great popularity as a film actress. As a teenager, Pfeiffer won several beauty contests. After briefly studying to be a court reporter, Pfeiffer decided to pursue an acting career. She started acting on television, appearing on such shows as Fantasy Island.

Pfeiffer had a small part in 1980's Falling in Love Again, but had a breakthrough with Grease 2. While the sequel to the hit musical proved to be commercially and critically disappointing, it helped introduce movie-goers to Pfeiffer. She soon moved on to the now-classic crime drama Scarface (1983), and showed critics that she could hold her own, starring opposite acting powerhouse Al Pacino.

Over the next few years, Pfeiffer took on a variety of roles. She played one of the title characters in 1987's The Witches of Eastwick, with Cher and Susan Sarandon. Turning to historical drama, she starred in Dangerous Liaisons (1988), opposite John Malkovich and Glenn Close. In Liaisons, Pfeiffer plays an unwitting pawn in a bet between Malkovich's and Close's characters. For her performance, she received her first Academy Award nomination.

Leading Lady

Pfeiffer showed off her comedic side by starring in the 1988 comedy Married to the Mob. Two years later, she won wide acclaim as a sultry singer in The Fabulous Baker Boys, starring opposite real-life brothers Beau and Jeff Bridges. For the 1991 romantic comedy Frankie and Johnny, Pfeiffer tried to tone down her remarkable good looks to play a lonely waitress who gets involved with another restaurant employee (Al Pacino). She quickly turned up the heat with Tim Burton's Batman Returns (1992), in which Michael Keaton plays the title character. For the film, Pfeiffer tackled a legendary villainess, "Catwoman, " and more was made of her skin-tight suit than her performance.

Pfeiffer continued to win starring roles in later films. In 1996, she played a harried single parent who eventually falls for George Clooney in One Fine Day. In another romantic tale, Up Close and Personal (1996), set in a television newsroom, she appeared opposite screen legend Robert Redford.
