Michelle Pfeiffer Covers InStyle Magazine

Michelle Pfeiffer Covers InStyle Magazine

Michelle Pfeiffer graces the July 2009 cover of InStyle. Here are some choice quotes from the 51-year-old actress:

On getting told she’s beautiful: “It took me about eight years to feel it was okay to look my nicest. To think, I’m just going to enjoy this. The older I get, the more I like hearing it. There’s this tremendous pressure off [after age 50] – you deserve to have a wrinkle, you deserve to have a little pooch on your tummy.”

On playing an older seductress opposite 26-year-old Rupert Friend in the upcoming film Cheri: “I so hate the term [cougar]!”

On her husband of fifteen years, television producer David E. Kelley: “Can you imagine, for 20 years, trying to stay mysterious in your relationship? That’s the worst advice I’ve ever heard. Of all the people in your life you don’t want to hide from, it’s your partner.”

    She’s the most beautiful women in the world.No contest.
    And I like that she’s such a private person.

  • jey

    Ok this is either photoshopped to death or either botoxed to death..51? c’mon

  • Pocketful of sunshine

    She looks 35. Or less!
    She’s beautiful and she owns her years.
    I hope we can all age like her.

  • doggossips

    She is so beautiful !
    please, come back more often in films…!!!!!

  • Jack ward

    Wow 51 years old and still looks young. That gotta be a new record.

  • meh

    Of course the cover’s photoshopped, but she still looks beautiful on red carpets. So agree with her comment about staying mysterious.

  • adrianna

    She reminds me of Charlize Theron, they should do a movie together.

  • taylorswiftfan

    Still love her from Dangerous Minds!

  • Nahla

    Gorgeous. One of the most beautiful actresses in Holywood. She ages gracefully and beautifully. And besides, She’s a great actress. I also love the fact that she doesn’t let everybody know about everything that happens in her life, what is private should remain private!

  • Jen

    She’s definitely right on relationships! She looks great

  • mertz

    she’s awesome. will make sure i read this instyle

  • Rhonda

    This Michelle is PERFECT. A perfect “moviestar” makes good movies and has a normal life, not in magazines every minute.

  • baby huey

    Michelle is still the sweetheart she has always been. You don’t see her out skanking around. She is a class act all the way.

  • LuckyL

    =) What Megan Fox will never be

  • Chaz

    Drop dead gorgeous. True Beauty and Talented. Thanks JJ.

  • Annie

    WOW!!!! A REAL movie star….God bless her. I will watch ANY movie she is in.

  • Jill

    She looks damn good for 51.

  • Jolie hot chin not

    Flawless but I think she did get some work done but still flawless.

  • Ali

    Because she has had so much plastic surgery over the years, her words sound disingenuous. She is skinny as a rail and always seems anxious and uptight.

  • Ivan

    Michelle TE AMOOOOOOOOO I LOVE YOU The most Beautiful woman in the world. the perfect face, thanks for this..

  • adriana


  • Michelle

    She’s an actress with style. The cover is photoshopped, so what? They do it, even if a 17 year old is on the cover. I’ve seen her in real life many times. She looks like a 40 year old and I must say like a good looking 40 year old. And she’s a very loving mother and really down to earth. You never see her behaving like a movie-star in real life. She always has a nice smile and some friendly words for people who recognize and approach her.

  • Marieme

    She’s so fabulous, fabulous. So humble and mega-talented, sweet, level-headed, etc…Love that Michelle!

  • whydowecare

    i love michelle…her husband is blessed to have such a wonderful and beautiful person cuz michelle could be with anyone she wants

  • remember da truth

    To say she’s had “so much plastic surgery” with no proof is just a spiteful, jealous comment. A woman is NOT skinny who is lean and toned, just because she isn’t fat and you wish she were.

    This woman has always had incredible beauty, and easily could have played the same role she did in Animal House a few more times, just the sexy girl, and her career be over by the time she was 26, like a Heather Graham type.

    Instead, she’s a powerhouse actress who insisted on being taken seriously, not by whining about being beautiful, or complaining of sexism in Hollywood, but by taking on demanding roles and nailing them every time. To still be working after a career of 30 years is a HUGE achievement! And she’s raised a family out of the public eye with a husband who is also an important Hollywood player — very admirable, indeed.

  • Ida

    Love her!

  • Telesales Tips

    This is what you call a “true” actress. She’s pretty, good person and a very good actress. Cheers to Michelle P.

  • nina

  • ellie’

  • Countess von Zinzendorf

    Beautiful and very classy. I hope today’s young actresses will follow her role.

  • AYF99

    She has alway been my favorite actress. She is a timeless beauty! Fabulous Baker Boys, Dangerous Liasons, One Fine Day, HairSpray … Hope we see more of her in movies.

  • brina

    she’a beautiful and ageless

  • jason

    She’s fake, not natural at all and should accept her age.

  • sally

    51? Come on! She is so young, fresh and beautiful, just like a girl. This woman is really something. Always so pretty, no matter how old she is. GORGEOUS!

  • Pumpkin

    Beautiful! Cheers!

  • Winston

    She’s more than just stunning to me. She’s perfection! The truest movie star in every sense of the word. She’s so soft spoken and gentle. A mystery in every sense of the word. Her films are great, so much vulnerability and likability in every role. About the plastic surgery, if she’s had any, she’s had the EXTREMELY GOOD kind. She looks fresh still, and very natural. Love her!

  • Vestes de Cuisine

    She does not look 51!

  • slipdiscsally
