Michelle Pfeiffer: A Life in Film

With 33 years worth of films under her belt, Michelle Pfeiffer has had an astonishingly prolific career. Determined to prove she was more than just a pretty face, the actress progressed from fluffy roles in Grease 2 to a breakout role in Scarface, critical acclaim in Dangerous Liasons and The Age of Innocence, and box office success in The Witches of Eastwick and Dangerous Minds. And who could forget that (much-parodied) piano singing scene in The Fabulous Baker Boys? Gaining a Hollywood star for her achievements in 2007, Michelle is still a success in an age-obsessed industry - starring in Tim Burton's Dark Shadows this year.

Take a look back at Michelle's impressive film career in our gallery below - and read our interview with Michelle here.
