Humpday hottie!

Hello dear friends.

It's Wednesday so time for our Humpday Hottie again!

Sorry to "disappoint" you girls but this week's hottie is... a woman! And what a woman that is...

The woman we are talking about, doesn't really need introduction. You all know her or have watched some of her many awesome movies.

Michelle Pfeifer

Born April 29, 1958 in Santa Ana California to Dick and Donna Pfeifer. She has an older brother and two younger sisters who both dabbled in acting and modeling but decided against making it their lives' work.

Graduated from Fountain Valley High School in 1976, and attended one year at the Golden West College, where she studied to become a court reporter. But it was while working as a supermarket checker at Vons, a large Southern California grocery chain, that she realized her true calling.

Michele was married to actor/director Peter Horton in 1981 from whom she divorced in 1988. After that she had a 3 year relationship with actor Fisher Stevens. When that didn't work out, Pfeiffer decided she didn't want to wait any longer before having her own family, and in March of 1993, she adopted a baby girl, Claudia Rose.

On November 13th of the same year, she married lawyer-turned-writer/producer David E. Kelley, creator of "Picket Fences", "Chicago Hope", "The Practice" and "Boston Public". On August 5, 1994 their son, John Henry was born.

Lets remember some of her many movies shall we?

Michelle has taken on various roles. From Stephanie in Grease 2 to Elvira in Scarface with Al Pacino (bows), from Isabeau d'Anjou in Ladyhawke to Sukie in the Witches of Eastwick with another Hollywood God, Jack Nicholson. She played Jo Ann Valenari in the 1988 Blockbuster Tequila Sunrise together with Mel Gibson and Kurt Russell, and who doesn't remember her as Madame de Tourvel in Dangerous Liaisons, a role that showed her amazing talent and had her won several awards and being nominated for an Oscar as well.

The next year, 1989, another big breakthrough playing Susie Diamond in The Fabulous Baker Boys. Another role that gave her many awards and nominations, amongst them an Oscar Nomination as Best Actress.

On to the most recent parts: What Lies Beneath with Harrison Ford, I am Sam with Sean Penn, White Oleander... Hairspray... Stardust... and the list goes on... and we hope it will still go on for many many many years!

Love you Michelle!
