53 year old Hollywood actress, Michelle Pfeiffer, has revealed how she never really felt comfortable being looked at as a sex symbol in her early years. Michelle claims that it was not until she made the 1989 movie The Fabulous Baker Boys, that she finally accepted her sex symbol status.
Pfeiffer explained, “Even two years before that, I would not have been able to play the part of the sexually appealing Susie Diamond. She was dynamic and unapologetic and I was able to put on those clothes and play the part.”
She added, “I think, because of the way I looked, I had stayed away from buying anything sexy or overtly sexual. It was a turning point for me, because I couldn’t understand why men would find her sexy. I wish I’d been more like her. Before that, I would walk around looking like a bag lady!”
Michelle Pfeiffer is next set to appear on the big screen, starring alongside Johnny Depp, Eva Green, Jonny Lee Miller and Chloe Moretz, in the Tim Burton movie Dark Shadows, which is set to be released on May 11, 2012 in both the US and the UK.
