Michelle Pfeiffer Explains Why Working with Husband with David E. Kelley Is 'Too Risky'

Don’t ever expect Michelle Pfeiffer to team up with her husband David E. Kelley!

The 63-year-old actress said in a new interview that she thinks working with her husband is “too risky.” She opened up while chatting on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Thursday night (April 7) in New York City.

For those who don’t know, David is the writer and producer of such shows as Ally McBeal, Big Little Lies, Big Sky, Nine Perfect Strangers, and many more.

“Nobody writes better for women than he does,” Michelle said on Fallon. “It’s unbelievable. And yet, I value our relationship more than a good part, and I just think it’s too risky. We’re both kind of fierce when we work, so if I come home and I’ve had a bad day, and I’m upset about something, I want him to be on my side because he hasn’t heard the other side. … There’s value in that.”

Michelle also talked about her first date with David, which was a blind date.

“I was kind of nervous and I’d had a couple of bad blind dates and I had sworn off of them, and my best friend said, ‘Please, just this last time, meet this guy, David Kelley.’ I said okay. So I thought it was a good idea to do like a bowling party,” Michelle said.

While it “didn’t start off great” for them, clearly it all worked out well!
