Michelle Pfeiffer received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on August 6, 2007 in front of the Hollywood & Highland Center.
Michelle revealed that she is not about to start a new project yet, but one will start in the Winter of 2007/2008. It looks like I’m going back to work… and I won’t wait take four years.
After a four-year break, during which she remained largely out of the public eye and devoted time to her husband and children, Pfeiffer returned to the screen in 2007 with villainous roles in two major summer blockbusters, as Velma Von Tussle in the film adaptation of the Broadway musical Hairspray (2007) with John Travolta and Christopher Walken, and as ancient witch Lamia in fantasy adventure Stardust (2007) opposite Claire Danes and Robert De Niro.
Pfeiffer then accepted the roles of Rosie in Amy Heckerling’s I Could Never Be Your Woman (2007) with Paul Rudd and Saoirse Ronan, and Linda in Personal Effects (2009) opposite Ashton Kutcher. Her next film, an adaptation of Colette’s Chéri (2009), reunited her with the director (Stephen Frears) and screenwriter (Christopher Hampton) of Dangerous Liaisons (1988), a film for which all three were nominees for (and, in Hampton’s case, recipient of) an Academy Award. Pfeiffer played the role of Léa de Lonval opposite Rupert Friend in the title role, with Kathy Bates as his mother. Chéri premiered at the Berlin Film Festival in February 2009, and received a nomination for the Golden Bear award. The Times of London reviewed the film favorably, describing Hampton’s screenplay as a “steady flow of dry quips and acerbic one-liners” and Pfeiffer’s performance as “magnetic and subtle, her worldly nonchalance a mask for vulnerability and heartache.” Roger Ebert in the Chicago Sun-Times wrote that it was “fascinating to observe how Pfeiffer controls her face and voice during times of painful hurt.” Kenneth Turan in the Los Angeles Times praised the “wordless scenes that catch Léa unawares, with the camera alone seeing the despair and regret that she hides from the world. It’s the kind of refined, delicate acting Pfeiffer does so well, and it’s a further reminder of how much we’ve missed her since she’s been away.”
