Michelle debuted in the 1978 fantasy drama Fantasy Island and went on to display her acting chops on Cats, Falling In Love Again, and Enos. But Pfeiffer's big introduction to Hollywood came after her future husband, and now ex-husband, actor Peter Horton extricated her from an early predicament, and soon Michelle was a married woman and Holywood's next big thing with Grease 2.
After Grease 2, Pfeiffer's stardom escalated with the crime drama Scarface, which grossed $66 million. More coveted roles came her way in Into the Night, Ladyhawke, Sweet Liberty, and Married to the Mob; Michelle reportedly made an estimated $1 million for some of the roles until Frankie and Johnny, and Batman Returns happened in 1991 and 1992.
