See Michelle Pfeiffer's transformation through the years.
While bagging groceries in El Toro, California, Michelle had a career revelation: "I couldn't stand stenography school, I couldn't stand junior college, this woman was bitching about her cantaloupes, and I said to myself, 'Acting.'"
Michelle took a passion for her craft-and her hair!- to new heights: "My twenties were all about acting," she has said. "Whenever I was studying acting, singing or dance, I was happy."
She tried out a natural look in hopes of getting cast against type. "I was careful not to wear a lot of makeup," she told In Style. "I'd show up for interviews in men's clothing."
She played an attorney in the award-winning I Am Sam, but had no desire to be back in the spotlight. "Stardom looks right on some people," she has said. "It wouldn't on me."
Pfeiffer reemerged with Hairspray, Stardust and newfound confidence. "Aging happens to every single one of us," she has said. "Once you accept that, it unburdens you."
The Cheri star tells In Style that she has never felt hotter: "Part of feeling sexy is feeling comfortable in your own skin, and less inhibited, and that goes along with getting older."
