Michelle Pfeiffer Reveals Why the Rise of Social Media Has Been 'Terrifying' for Her

Michelle Pfeiffer is featured in InStyle‘s March 2019 issue, out on newsstands on February 15.

Here’s what the 60-year-old actress had to say…

On the rise of social media: “It’s been terrifying for me, honestly. I’ve spent my entire life avoiding, doing as little as possible, in terms of exposure — literally the least that I could get away with as an actress.”

On joining Instagram: “I’ve started paying more attention. And I’ve been following other celebrities who I think are as private as I am, and even they are venturing into the Instagram world. So I’m dipping my toe in. I’ll be very tentative in the beginning. But in a weird way, I’m kind of excited about it.”

On watching her own work: “I’m not tempted at all. I don’t like watching myself ever, whether it’s 30 years later or the rushes from the day before. I’m just so critical. I’m a perfectionist, and there’s nothing perfect in what I do…so I’m happier when I don’t watch.”
