Michelle Pfeiffer: I’ve defied the obsession with looks in this industry

Michelle Pfeiffer hasn’t had her hair cut for four years.

The Stardust actress, who plays an evil witch terrified of growing old in the new fantasy film, admits she let herself go during her four-year break from Hollywood.

Michelle said: “I can go months or years without having a manicure. I never pluck my eyebrows. The make-up artists shape them only when I am doing publicity.

“I don’t get my hair cut between films, just when I work and I have to. As far as body maintenance goes, I do eat well and exercise. I go at it hardcore in the gym, but that’s about it.”

The 49-year-old star can understand why so many celebrities undergo cosmetic surgery, but insists she is content to grow old gracefully.

Michelle said: “I don’t think anyone is going to be condemned for a little something done here or there but
people have lost sight of what is beautiful.

“I’ve defied the obsession with looks in this industry and not allowed it to shape me. I’ve always known beauty is fleeting.

“I’ve spent most of my life not thinking about my looks and it has served me really well.”
