Michelle Pfeiffer: “You know that 10X magnifying mirror that you have in the bathroom? Throw it away”

FFN_er_50929924 - Michelle Pfeiffer: "You know that 10X magnifying mirror that you have in the bathroom? Throw it away"

On aging in the Hollywood:

“Having to watch yourself age on a giant movie screen is simply not natural. It can wreak havoc on your psyche. My dermatologist said to me once, ‘You know that 10X magnifying mirror that you have in the bathroom? Throw it away.’ It was the best advice anybody ever gave me. Of course, now my eyes are weaker and I can’t see to put my makeup on without that mirror! But once you get over a certain hump there actually is less pressure. You can begin to look great for your age. You don’t have to look young anymore. I’ve moved over to that other side — I’m 55, which is a little too close to 60, but looking great for my age is okay now.”

… says Michelle in Ladies’ Home Journal.

One of the celebrities I used to admire as a child. Michelle Pfeiffer was just so breathtakingly flawless, high Slavic like cheekbones, very catlike eyes (she was the best Catwoman by far), high forehead, just too perfect for words. Although I tend to admire all beauty types, I find typical Eastern European facial features like high cheek bones just too beautiful and outstanding. I am aware that she is not Eastern European by descent, but she could definitely pass as Russian, Polish, etc…Still has a great figure (nice legs), and very very beautiful features.

Milla Jovovich & Izabella Scorupco (best bond girl for me) have the whole high cheekbone thing happening, & both have those piercing clear green blue grey coloured eyes. So hot women, Michelle, who my friends & I call Mishka. They both reminded me in a way of Michelle.

I disagree, i think that whole slavic, eastern european area have a tendency to have rounder faces. When I was at international camp, the girls from those areas had flatter rounder faces.For example, Mila Kunis has a round chimpmuck face, I think the high cheekbones are more western european.

Mila Kunis is really cute and such a good actress, although I would refrain from calling anyone chipmunk face, sounds too cruel. Not every Eastern European woman has ofcourse noticably high cheekbones. Just a trend I have noticed with quite a number of Eastern European women, like Magdalena Frackowiak and those screen beauties Jen mentioned, have those typical high cheekbones. You are dead right concerning Western European people possessing those cheekbones too, although, being part Western European myself, I have also seen women with those rounder faces like Mila Kunis having a Western European heritage. I have high cheekbones, but… Read more »

Yeh, Japanese people have high cheekbones, thats where you got it from. Native American Indians have high cheekbones, & people from Finland, poland and scandinavia.

Yes, and Michelle has swedish ancestry, so maybe that’s where the high cheekbones comes from. Im 50 % swedish, 50 % finnish and my entire family has high cheekbones as well.

Actually, a little of Rosamund Pike (Pride and Prejudice, Die another Day) with a higher forehead and high cheekbones like Magdalena. Rosamund is not too famous and average in appearance to so many critics. The other ladies you mentioned are gorgeous!

Yeah, in that part of the world, like everywhere else, there’s just a mix. But I think you do see the more high-cheekbones type vs the rounder, flatter faced kind, & then sort of stronger, more aquiline noses vs snub noses, & then more asiatic, almond eyes vs quite round eyes. Totally Mila Kunis vs idk Ana Ivanovic. I think people with origins from the south & east tend more towards Kunis & the north & west to Ivanovic. (fyi don’t hate, those are my people & i’m more on the Kunis end of things) i always thought Michelle Pfeiffer… Read more »

Eva Herzigova, Adriana Cernanova, and plenty Eastern European girls have high cheekbones. A small number of women you met in a that specific area cant represent an entire eastern europe, duh!. Many of us do have those prominent cheekbones

I think you’re confusing high cheekbones with just having a bony face – very common misconception. In that case, everyone who’s thin has great bone structure, right?

One can have a round face and/or full face with high cheekbones.

SA girl
Guest

Actually, no confusion. Michelle Pfeiffer was full faced when younger, just search her younger images, she was definitely not bony faced at all, but still had those gorgeous high cheekbones, a very Swedish trait. In addition, Helena Mattsson (who portrayed a Russian lady in a few episodes of Desperate Housewives) has a typical Swedish dollface, not bony faced, as she too has high cheekbones. However, with certain women like Mila Kunis, who is round faced, yet doesnot possess high cheekbones, as there is no gradual decrease in fullness as you approach the chin area. Bony faces donot designate someone having… Read more »

I actually wasn’t referring to your post, or making an argument about Michelle Pfeiffer. Clearly the woman’s got some high cheekbones. However, yes: one thing I have noticed in general when it comes to bone structure is that people tend to knee-jerk “high cheekbones!!” whenever someone just has a bony-ass face. lol If you can simply see the cheekbones at all, they’re automatically high & amazing.

SA girl

I would say ‘square’ to ‘heartshaped’ faces generally have prominent cheekbones, with the gradual decrease in fullness to chin aspect. Yet another example would be a young Sofia Loren, who was fuller faced than she is now (quite obvious as she is quite old now). I love full faces with high cheekbones, bony faces are not my ideal. If I thought bony faces had prominent high cheekbones, I would have mentioned Helen Hunt in a heartbeat, however, she doesnot possess prominent high cheekbones.

You know what I don’t get? High foreheads are seen as both a liability and an asset according to whom you ask – depending on the person, it’s seen as either gorgeous or Frankenstein-like. Ditto for a low forehead – depending on the person, it’s either gorgeous or apelike.

Though I will say the distinction between the two is that a high forehead has all the “universal biology of ideal female beauty” talk behind it right along with an hourglass figure, oval-shaped face, wide-set eyes, facial symmetry, long neck, clear skin, ears that don’t protrude, etc.

Actually oval-shaped faces a recent idealization. Throughout history different shapes of faces have been idealized. You’re right about the other attributes, though.

wide set eyes and hourglass figure, not so much. Small waist- yes, but a ruler, an apple even can have a small waist too. Wide set eyes- what matters more actually is that the distance between the eyes is about equal to the length of the eyes.

This woman has a naturaly refreshing outlook on life that’s a true reflection of her Springtime nature. I’ve almost 10 years more backspace to have a solid per spective on the 1960s when I came of age, being born in April 1949..Ie Michelle was only 5 in 1963, but she portrayed an open minded soul of 25-35 in her movie, Lovefield, so well that I had to keep remembering it was a movie. But that’s the idea, no ? If it looks like acting it’s not, Zen enough. Cinema has awesome power of immagination we don’t typicaly see in real… Read more »

At the Target by my house all the magnifying mirrors on display are regularly covered in yellow dots of goop from people popping their pimples in them. Yuck

LOVE that movie! All the ladies look gorgeous in that movie imo. Jack Nicholson is a fabulous actor! I just love Michelle when she is in the pool talking to him, and also when he tapes her on the video camera saying she is scared of pain. Her face in those shots is just…breathtakingly beautiful. Stunning woman.

I agree with the magnifying mirror. Throw them away. When you have them, you’ll notice things in your face you never knew or saw before. Like when I look close to my face, I notice I have some hair on my nose, on my forehead, some serious whitheads on my chin etc and it kinda breaks you apart and you usually don’t see it with regular mirrors.

Yes, exactly. There’s no point to seeing yourself magnified like that. You’re seeing things that no one else can see, unless they have some kind of special super hero magnifying power vision. Hardly likely.

Erica

She is really beautiful and elegant – and has aged well, though I think with a bit of (tasteful) dermatologist-inspired help!

She’s completely right about not trying to look ‘young’ – it’s just not possible when you’re older and it often looks weird when they try to go back 10 years (or more!) with cosmetic procedures, clothes, etc. And she’s right about the magnifying mirror – I never look in one, they’re cruel, whatever your age!

She still looks great, seems like a smart and classy lady, and a great actress to boot. She’s definitely been my favourite Catwoman to date. No one’s ever even come close

She aged gracefully better than most women in Hollywood.
I don’t think she looks Eastern European. She looks Dutch or Scandinavian.

I totally agree. Germanic people often have somewhat squarish face shape, whilst Slavic people tend to have more rounded, oval faces.

That being said, I think Michelle is gorgeous. Both young and aged.

One word…Scarface!
She was so striking in that movie.
I don’t think she is or was beautiful but she has a truely remarkable face.You’ll never miss it in a crowd or in the midst of other blondes.
And she has always had great legs.

Gorgeous woman, and super classy. Aging very well! But a woman’s hands aways gives her age away; unless she botoxes or lasers her hands as well, Michelle’s hands are definitely those of a 50-60 year old.

Aging nicely, though I doubt it’s all natural.
And she’s so right about mirrors. My friend’s doctor told her the same thing when she mentioned pimples and freckles bothering her. He said something like “Some people don’t suffer from skin problems but from standing too close to the mirror.”

I can’t say I’m a fan of her body, always heard her talking about how little she eats. I think she is probably eating normally now, after years of dieting, yet not doing much in the way of weights or other exercise. She looks fine here though.

Um, she has clearly had some work done around her eyes, and IMO, unfortunately no longer looks like herself. Pity. With her features, she would have aged as gracefully as she claims to have.

She looks horribly old for 60. And it is well known that she started getting work done very early on. When she was a bag girl at a supermarket in LA. This is not what 60 looks like. She would look good for 75.
