Michelle Pfeiffer is Insecure!
Posted by Adam
MICHELLE Pfeiffer admits she’s still insecure about her career.
The actress told Ladies’ Home Journal that she always worries that she’s going to be fired from her jobs.
“I still think I’m going to be fired in the first week of every new job I take,” she said.
“Always. In fact, before I even start a movie I’ll try to get myself fired or think of a reason I should quit. I guess it’s fear of failure.
“I tend to choose parts that are a stretch for me. It’s like I’ll throw myself into the deep end and think I’m going to drown for a very long time.
“Having to watch yourself age on a giant movie screen is simply not natural. It can wreak havoc on your psyche. My dermatologist said to me once, ‘You know that 10X magnifying mirror that you have in the bathroom? Throw it away’.
“It was the best advice anybody ever gave me. Of course, now my eyes are weaker and I can’t see to put my makeup on without that mirror! But once you get over a certain hump there actually is less pressure.
“You can begin to look great for your age. You don’t have to look young anymore. I’ve moved over to that other side — I’m 55, which is a little too close to 60, but looking great for my age is okay now.”
