Michelle Pfeiffer, whose acting prowess quickly came to match her iconic beauty, has the distinction of being nominated for six consecutive Golden Globe awards, from 1989 to 1995, winning for her acclaimed work as a sultry lounge singer in 1989’s “The Fabulous Baker Boys.” She was nominated for an Oscar for that film as well as for “Dangerous Liaisons” and “Love Field.”
The generally private Pfeiffer has enjoyed A-list status for most of her career, appearing in many hit films (“Scarface,” “The Witches of Eastwick,” “Batman Returns,” “What Lies Beneath”) and against her share of top leading men (Mel Gibson, Jack Nicholson, Robert Redford, George Clooney, among others). She has proven as adept in comedies (“Married to the Mob”) and musicals (“Hairspray”) as she has in serious dramas (“White Oleander,” “The Deep End of the Ocean”) and period pieces (“The Age of Innocence”).
Trivia buffs will likely remember Pfeiffer’s early performance as no-nonsense “Pink Lady” Stephanie Zinone — and her sexy “Cool Rider” number — in 1982’s failed but oddly enduring musical sequel “Grease 2.”
