Michelle Pfeiffer is still terrified she’s going to be fired every time she lands a new film role.
And despite earning multiple award nominations, the 61-year-old isn’t convinced about her talent.
“Truth be told I still worry (about getting fired),” she tells Live with Kelly and Ryan on Friday (18Oct19). “I used to shake, literally.”
She’s not a big fan of seeing her finished work either.
“I don’t like to watch myself. In fact the performances that I like are usually not the performances other people like. If I see a film… and I think, ‘You know what, I think I’m kind of good in that,’ which is rare…maybe I might get panned.
“And the movie where I go, ‘I really missed the boat on that one,’ people love it so I can’t gauge it.”
Admitting she likes her work in Married to The Mob and Catwoman, Pfeiffer is less keen to praise her performance as Queen Ingrith in new film Maleficent: Mistress of Evil.
“I love the film,” she adds. “I’m fine (in it). It takes me a while to get some distance. But I love Angelina (Jolie) and Elle (Fanning).”
The only downside to making the blockbuster was the frequent lack of scene partners.
“(There’s) a lot of green screen and acting to nothing and you feel foolish most of the time,” she admits. “I think that’s the biggest hurdle – not feeling stupid.
“But it’s also kind of fun to get in a harness and fly around.”
Michelle Pfeiffer has one specific bit of advice for new Catwoman Zoë Kravitz
From one feline to another! Michelle Pfeiffer is the latest former Catwoman with a message for Zoë Kravitz, who will take over as Selina Kyle in Matt Reeves’ reboot The Batman. Pfeiffer, who portrayed the leather-clad character in Tim Burton’s 1992 movie Batman Returns, was on Good Morning America on Wednesday promoting her new movie Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, and offered a small but important piece of advice to Kravitz.
“Make sure, whilst designing the costume, they consider how you’re going to go to the bathroom — minor detail,” she explained after admitting the role is one her favorites and that she’s “so excited” for Kravitz.
“That’s not what I was thinking you were going to say,” GMA host Michael Strahan interjected, “but it’s a great piece of advice.”
“It’s an important one,” she added.
