Trivia that mentions this person:
Batman Returns [1992]
  • Michelle Pfeiffer got through 60 catsuits during the 6 month shoot, at a cost of $1,000 a time.
  • The final shot of the film, in which Catwoman is seen looking at the Bat-signal, was added as an afterthought, literally weeks before the film opened. The shot had to be filmed on a weekend, less than a day after conception, with a double for Michelle Pfeiffer. That single shot cost $250,000.
  • During one scene, Michelle Pfeiffer had to put a live bird in her mouth.
    Catwoman [2004]
  • A picture of Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman from Batman Returns can be seen in the pile of old catwomen pictures.
  • Ashley Judd was, at one time, slated for the lead role. Josh Lucas was offered the role of Detective Tom Lone, but turned it down. Frances McDormand was once in talks for a role. The role of Ophelia Powers was originally offered to Julie Newmar. And Michelle Pfeiffer had low opinions of the costume's comfort level from Batman Returns and consequently declined reprising the role.
    Dune [1984]
  • Kim Basinger, [?] Melanie Griffith, Michelle Pfeiffer, Meg Ryan, [?] Jennifer Jason Leigh, [?] Kristy McNichol, Jodie Foster, Brooke Shields, [?] Tatum O'Neal, [?] Bridget Fonda and Sarah Jessica Parker all were considered to play Princess Irulan.
    Sleepless in Seattle [1993]
  • The role of Annie was originally offered to Julia Roberts, who turned it down. Kim Basinger was also offered the role in the early script process, but turned it down because she thought the premise was ridiculous. After Michelle Pfeiffer, [?] Jennifer Jason Leigh and Jodie Foster declined as well, Meg Ryan landed the role.
    Splash [1984]
  • Before Daryl Hannah accepted the role of Madison, it had already been turned down by Michelle Pfeiffer, [?] Melanie Griffith and Kathleen Turner. [?] Tatum O'Neal had also been offered the role of Madison but declined as did Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Diane Lane. Jodie Foster auditioned for the role, but turned it down in order to play a character in The Hotel New Hampshire. [?] Rosanna Arquette auditioned for the role of Madison, but had to back out. Brooke Shields reportedly turned down an offer to play Madison, in order to study French Literature at the Princeton University. [?] Debra Winger also reportedly wanted the role of Madison, but Ron Howard turned her down.

  • [?] Rosanna Arquette, Kim Basinger, Annette Bening, Joan Cusack, Geena Davis, [?] Melanie Griffith, [?] Jennifer Jason Leigh, Madonna, Demi Moore, Michelle Pfeiffer, Sharon Stone, Emma Thompson and [?] Debra Winger were considered for the role of Helen.
    Evita [1996]

    Justice League [2017]
  • In one scene, Alfred (Jeremy Irons) says to Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck), "One misses the days when one's biggest concerns were exploding wind-up penguins." This is a reference to Batman Returns, where Batman (Michael Keaton) goes up against Catwoman (Michelle Pfeiffer) and the Penguin (Danny DeVito) who had an army of penguins wearing exploding rockets with a plot to destroy Gotham City. The composer of Justice League, Danny Elfman, also composed the original Batman & Batman Returns musical scores and he utilizes parts of them in this film.
    Ant-Man and the Wasp [2018]
  • Michelle Pfeiffer agreed to appear in the movie because she is a fan of the first Ant-Man (2015).
  • The flashback in the first film to Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer) on the missile never showed her face, but Reed told the casting and visual effects departments responsible for the barely visible eyes behind her mask that he wanted it to resemble Pfeiffer. "Michelle was always my dream casting for that role, and that was even before we knew we'd be making a second movie."
  • Michelle Pfeiffer and Paul Rudd played lovers in I Could Never Be Your Woman (2007). In this film, she played his girlfriend's mother.
  • First movie collaboration for Michelle Pfeiffer and Michael Douglas, who, despite both having careers that span more than three decades, have never worked directly together. The same is true for either Douglas or Pfeiffer and Laurence Fishburne.
