Michelle Pfeiffer wasn't just one of the best, if not THE best, actresses of the 80's but she is still one of the best actresses today. She is multitalented (oil painter, singer, and she can fix things around the house), stunningly beautiful, A LOVING MOTHER AND WIFE, a classy and aspiring woman, doesn't hog the spotlight or use her children or sex appeal to make headlines, and she is extremely modest. Did I mention her potential humor? Michelle Pfeiffer is TIMELESS.
