Welcome back followers, after a short (too long for me!) stop for moving out we’ve finally settled and all working again.
As I mentioned you before we changed hosting as I was experiencing issues with previous ones, nothing is lost just moved elsewhere and like all the movings you know how boring and long can it be. Stay tuned cause updates are coming, even if our Michelle is quite calm lately. Great have you all back, great to be back! <3
Chloe Moretz and Michelle Pfeiffer are no doubt hoping that their latest project together will be somewhat more entertaining than the abject “Dark Shadows” which they collaborated on earlier this year. And so they’ve joined the cast of “Man Under,” a production which has also added an Academy Award winning actor and Academy Award nominated director in one fell swoop, as Tim Robbinswill helm the dysfunctional family comedy while also starring alongside Pfeiffer and Moretz.
Ann Cherkis (who previously penned “The Secret” which starred David Duchovny and Olivia Thirlby) has written the script, which follows a family whose lives are transformed after they are exhibited in a series of photographs at the Museum of Modern Art. The film will be Robbins’ first theatrically released feature since 1999’s “Cradle Will Rock,” with his work behind the camera since being restricted to videos, TV movies, and most recently episodes of television’s “Treme.”
It sounds like a potentially fun little family movie, and based on the strength of the cast alone it looks like a project to keep an eye on. As previously mentioned Robbins is a past Oscar-winner, Pfeiffer’s a previous nominee, and we wouldn’t be at all surprised if Moretz went on to win a little golden man of her own at some point in the future. “Man Under” joins an increasingly long list of films that Moretz has lined up, with “Kick Ass 2” and “Carrie” probably the most high-profile – and it doesn’t look like she’ll be disappearing from our screens any time soon regardless of the success of that remake.

Actress Michelle Pfeiffer could see herself on television someday, but it won’t be on one of David E. Kelly’s popular dramedies.
The “Dark Shadows” star told “Extra’s” Maria Menounos, “Some of the best parts, particularly for women, are on TV, and I would definitely be open to that at some point, but we’ve decided we don’t even want to work together.”
Keeping their careers separate could be the secret to their 19-year marriage. The Oscar nominee and the “Ally McBeal” creator also moved out of Hollywood, and set up house in Northern California. “I have mixed feelings about it, but it was a good move for us.”
She definitely doesn’t have mixed feeling about the upcoming election. “I’m on pins and needles, I’ve got to say. It’s a tight one, isn’t it? I’m voting for Obama, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed.”
Pfeiffer, who will star in the upcoming Luc Besson film “Malavita,” is also helping to raise awareness about cancer, hosting the Elyse Walker Pink Party this past Saturday at Santa Monica Airport. The event benefited the Cedars-Sinai Women’s Cancer Program and aims to “end cancer as a threat to women.”
Michelle feels a special connection to the cause because her father passed away from cancer and her best friend was later diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Find out how you can help at Pink-Party.org.
Saturday’s 8th Annual Pink Party for Cedars-Sinai Women’s Cancer Program raised over $1.6 million, but for fete host Michelle Pfeiffer, the event had a personal edge.
“I wanted to honor one of my best friends for being an inspiration and striving to live and outsmart the inisidious nature of ovarian cancer,” Pfeiffer told Variety. “I hope my participation in the Pink Party will help raise awareness to early detection of all women’s cancers, but specifically ovarian cancer.”
Since the party’s inception in 2005, event, founded by fashion stylist and buyer Elyse Walker, has raised almost $8 million total.
“I first met Elyse and her team 13 years ago when her boutique opened,” Pfeiffer said. “Over the years I’ve watched the Pink Party grow from a little in store event in Pacific Palisades where I used to live to one of Cedars-Sinai’s biggest women’s cancer fundraisers. Elyse asked for my participation because we both share a common bond of having someone close to us with ovarian cancer. I was happy to lend my support to the research of Dr. Beth Karlan.”
Walker herself is surrounded by a celeb support system more than willing to join the Pink Party fundraising efforts.
“I always ask my celebrity clientele from the store if they would help participate,” Walker told Variety. “Everyone of them has been touched by cancer and they want to give back — they realize the importance of philanthropy and doing something good within the community.”
This year’s event in Santa Monica brought out famous femme faces including Leslie Mann, Marcia Cross, Maria Menounos and Olivia Munn, but men of the showbiz world made appearances too, including JJ Abrams, Judd Apatow and Pfeiffer’s husband, David E. Kelly. Fashion-foward event included a runway show featuring designers like Chloe, J.Mendel, Valentino, and Stella McCartney.
“The Pink Party is a celebration of life!” Pfeiffer remarked, emphasizing it as a stand out event compared to the bounty of other fundraising dinners sprinkled throughout the year. “It isn’t a sit down dinner with speeches but more of a party with a great fashion show. It combines fashion, friendship and philanthropy in a casual, fun setting.”
Stylin’ fun aside, Pfeiffer hopes the event will keep cancer detection in the forefront of women’s minds moving foward: “So many women today still do not know the early symptoms. I am just trying to help spread the word and educate women,” she said.
Pfeiffer was born in Santa Ana, California, the second of four children of Richard Pfeiffer, a heating and air-conditioning contractor, and Donna (née Taverna), a housewife. She has one elder brother, Rick (born 1955), and two younger sisters, Dedee Pfeiffer, a television and film actress,and Lori Pfeiffer (born 1965).Her father was of German, Dutch, and Irish descent, and her mother was of Swiss and Swedish ancestry.
