It’s Agent K ! Tommy Lee Jones (left) and Josh Brolin (right) play the same character in Men in Black 3—but 40 years apart, as Will Smith’s Agent J travels back to the ’60s to save his pal. Director Barry Sonnenfeld reveals all about this cinematic double take.

This wasn’t about imitating Tommy but embodying who K was decades ago. The audience learns that K used to be open and optimistic; we also discover why he eventually closed himself off. That was the challenge: playing the same guy but one with a different outlook. Josh was the only person I wanted. I thought his performance as George W. Bush [in 2008’s W.] was extraordinary. It wasn’t an impersonation; it was an interpretation. Josh studied Tommy’s voice, which has this moving, often sad lilt to it. On the set, he’d listen to the first two movies. The result is so uncanny people ask me if Tommy dubbed the entire movie (he didn’t!). You think you’re watching the same guy play one part. It didn’t hurt that both men happen to be handsome, are about the same height, have enormous heads, and are not afraid of ghosts, which I am.”

nitely loves a good meal, a lot of laughing, loud discussions. Your first big acting break was on a Brady Bunch episode. Which Brady did you have a crush on? I was about 16 when I got the show, and I played a cheerleader. I was a bit like, “I can’t b believ believe e eve e I’m m here. I’m just gonna stand back g and watch.” I did a tthink that Greg was kind of cute. k You’re a famously nice person; is it extra fun to play a nasty lawyer on The Good Wife? You have no idea! That’s why I took the role. I’ve played so many moms, best friends, sisters, and understanding people. I said, “Is there nobody out there I can play who’s kind of cranky?” About a week later, The Good Wife came up, and I was like, “I’m in!” What’s the sweetest thing about your husband? He leaves me notes, by the phone or the coffeemaker. I keep them all. He also sends me pictures from his phone all day—where he is, what he’s doing, something he saw. And how does he feel about the album? He is so happy. He does this thing: “Oh, honey, that’s my favorite track.” And then, “No, this one’s my favorite.” And then, “You know what? Now this one’s my favorite.” He’s all over the map; it’s so funny.


Transformation Nation: Million Dollar You

Manner Up! Modern etiquette made easy

Q: I teach first grade, and the mother of a child in my class brings her 1-year-old son to school events—and breast-feeds in public without covering up sufficiently. Other parents have asked me to say something to her. Should I? —Name withheld, Scottsdale, Ariz.

A: As moms everywhere know, breast-feeding is natural and sometimes has to be done in public. The law generally supports a mom’s right to do so, and even asking this woman to cover up could have legal ramifications. But Everyday Etiquette author Patricia Rossi has this suggestion: “Talk to the school principal about designating a comfortable, quiet place for breast-feeding. You can then offer the mom use of the room as a place away from noise and germs.” (Of course, she could also consider the feelings of others and try to feed her son before or after a school event.) —Judith Newman Send your questions to

Michelle Pfeiffer


The Dark Shadows star steps back into the spotlight and opens up about younger leading men, grown-up kids, and the secret to staying in love

michelle pfeiffer greets me with an air kiss and introduces her husband, TV writerBY DOTSON producer David E. Kelley (Ally McBeal, The RADER Practice, Harry’s Law), at whose office in Burbank, Calif., we are meeting. Kelley— handsome, bemused—kisses his wife. “We won’t be long, I promise,” Pfeiffer tells him as she leads me to a room across the hall, laughing flirtatiously, a woman used to handling men. She settles in next to an open window, looking ethereally beautiful in the afternoon sun, casually dressed in slim, tailored black jeans and a beige silk blouse worn unbuttoned over a fitted white T-shirt. A diaphanous, flowered silk scarf hangs loose against her elegant neck. Everything about her, from her appearance to the sound of her soft voice, seems exquisitely feminine, like costly perfume. We talk for several hours about things that mat-

ter greatly to her: family, friends, the career that serendipitously brought her from a grocery checkout line to enduring stardom. Pfeiffer, 54, grew up near Los Angeles, one of four kids in a working-class family. Her mom was a homemaker, her dad an air-conditioning contractor. An indifferent student, dreamy, a bit lost, she hung out with surfers at the beach. She thought about becoming a court stenographer someday, maybe a psychologist—she May 6, 2012 • 9

wasn’t sure. In 1978 she entered the Miss Orange County beauty pageant and won; a pageant judge who was also a talent agent took her on. Her first notable films were 1982’s Grease 2 and, a year later, Scarface, opposite Al Pacino. But she says it wasn’t until 1987 and The Witches of Eastwick that people started recognizing her and stopped asking, “Are you Debbie Harry?” Oscar nominations for Dangerous Liaisons, The Fabulous Baker Boys, and Love Field followed. Her latest film is Dark Shadows (opening May 11), which reunites her with Tim Burton, who directed her as Catwoman in 1992’s Batman Returns. It’s an adaptation of the gothic soap opera that aired from 1966 to 1971 and with which she was “obsessed” as a kid, she says. In late June, she’ll costar in the family drama People Like Us. Before Kelley, Pfeiffer was not especially lucky in love. An early marriage to actor Peter Horton failed, and she was romantically linked with Val Kilmer, John Malkovich, and Michael Keaton. After a three-year relationship with Fisher Stevens ended, Pfeiffer decided to start a family on her own, initiating adoption proceedings. A couple of months before finalizing the adoption of her daughter, Claudia Rose, in March 1993, she met Kelley on a blind date; they married later that year, and she got pregnant with their son, John Henry, on their wedding night. The family is now based near San Francisco. PARADE You and your husband will celebrate your 19th anniversary this year. How do you judge whether a person in your life is going to be that solid for you, whether they’re worth the effort?

I haven’t met a ton of people who meet that criteria. [laughs] It takes years for me to trust; I know that about myself. A lot of it is because I am so private, and so reluctant to make myself vulnerable. You have to be vulnerable to have real intimacy with people. It’s a two-way street, you know? Eventually I do get there, but not with very many people. I have it with David, of course. Why the fear of vulnerability?

Well, it is part of the hand you’re dealt when you become a celebrity. Nobody would consciously decide to become guarded and self-protective. I was very open when I was younger, but celebrity teaches you. You learn to cope with the intense scrutiny.

hoodwinked here? Why did I do this?” From the beginning you have to choose well. If you choose badly, no matter what you do, it’s going to fail and you’re going to be unhappy. A lot of it is luck. I chose really well with David. I got really lucky. You met on a blind date?

Yes, and for once it was the right person at exactly the right time! [laughs] And 19 years later, I never take him for granted. I’ve never met a person who has more integrity than my husband. I respect that. There’s his humor and intelligence, too, and he’s really cute, all those things—but if you don’t respect your partner, you’ll get sick of him. Your first marriage, to Peter Horton, failed.

I married Peter at a very young age. I’m not Sometimes you know and sometimes the same person I was then. I forget I you don’t. All humans are subject was even married before. to denial. Everybody is vulnerable It’s a hard thing to forget. Nobody would to being in relationships where I do forget. Actually, I didn’t tell consciously decide they get fooled. I’m no different. my kids for the longest time. to become guarded. It’s just human nature. They were old when I finally I was very open But you are different. You’re said, “Oh, by the way, just FYI, when I was younger, rich and famous. I was married once before.” They but celebrity Yes. Well, like my daddy used were like, “What?!” It had never teaches you.” to say, “Trust everyone, but cut occurred to me to tell them. How do you know if a man really loves you?

the cards.”


You had other relationships before you married David. …

Some were relationships, some were encounters. Why didn’t they work out?

This is the thing I’ve learned, after a lot of couch time: There are always red flags. You need to look for those red flags along the way so you don’t continue to make the same mistakes with another person. Really look back and ask, “How was I so

In 1993, when you were single, you adopted your daughter. Was that because you said, “To hell with men—I’ll do it alone”?

No, I said, “To hell with figuring out the man thing before I start a family.” I really, really wanted to have kids, and I think my desperation to do that was messing up my relationships. It was skewing my perceptions, causing me to judge things too harshly or maybe deciding they were better than they were. Finally I thought, “Wait

a minute! I don’t have to have a man to become a mother.” It was like a lightbulb went on. And when I met David, all of that pressure was off. It was really just about, how do David and I work together? As a bonus, I got to see how he was as a father as he developed a relationship with Claudia.

The Beauty in the Beast

What led you to acting?

Spectacular Treasure from Mount St. Helens


or almost a hundred years it lay dormant. Silently building strength. At 10,000 feet high, it was truly a sleeping giant, a vision of peaceful power. Until everything changed in one cataclysmic moment. On May 18, 1980, the once-slumbering beast awoke with violent force and revealed its greatest secret.

It was one of nature’s most impressive displays of power. Mount St. Helens erupted, sending a column of ash and smoke 80,000 feet into the atmosphere. From that chaos, something beautiful emerged… our spectacular Helenite Necklace. Produced from the heated volcanic rock dust of Mount St. Helens, this brilliant green creation has captured the attention of jewelry designers worldwide. Today you can wear this 6½-carat stunner for the exclusive price of only $129! Your satisfaction is guaranteed. Our Helenite Necklace puts the gorgeous green stone center stage, with a faceted pear-cut set in gold-layered .925 sterling silver. The explosive origins of the stone are echoed in the flashes of light that radiate as the piece swings gracefully from its 18" gold-plated sterling silver chain. Today the volcano sits quiet, but this unique piece of natural history continues to erupt with gorgeous green fire.

Add the 3-carat earrings!

I knew I wanted a career. I’m a worker. I loved it from the moment I entered the workforce, when I was 14. My mother really harped on me, “You have to have a career.” She never worked [outside the home], and it was important to her that we had careers. I was working at Vons supermarket as a checker. It’s a good job, but I was having a particularly bad day. Some man was complaining about the price of his cantaloupes, and that was my breaking point. I looked up to the heavens and asked myself, “If you could be doing anything in the world, what would it be?” And it was acting. It kind of surprised me.

Smart Luxuries—Surprising Prices

Being a parent is the hardest thing in the world. Sometimes I feel like I have to go back to work to get some rest, and we work a minimum 12-hour day making a movie! None of that is nearly as exhausting as parenthood—the psychological toll it takes on you because these lives are in your hands. I take it very seriously. Just when you think you’ve got your kids figured out, they change on you. For somebody who’s controlling, you can’t control it. Of course, I don’t think I’m controlling, but that’s what I’ve been told! [laughs] Your kids are now nearly grown.

the empty nest. Let me tell you, it is no laughing matter. It is really hard. Claudia’s in her first year of college. She’s doing great. My son is applying to colleges now. I remember reading an interview with Dustin Hoffman; his first child had just gone off to college, and he said, “Nobody talks about their [empty] room.” I feel like I’m going to cry just thinking about it. [pause] Are you hot? I am. Or am I having a big hot flash? Did I really just say that? That will be a headline; I can see it. [laughs and opens the window wider]

Connery when he was turning 60. [Pfeiffer was 32.] Are there more roles now for experienced actresses?

There are fewer movies being made, so there are fewer movie roles overall. There aren’t really enough to go around—there just aren’t. But TV has opened up a lot of parts for women. Some of the best work, in fact, is on cable. Have you ever thought of doing a TV series?

I might. When I started out there were “TV actors” and “movie actors,” and they didn’t let you cross Let’s talk about Dark Shadows. What over. Big movie stars weren’t going did you like about this project? to get on a television series. I had this memory of I’ve never understood loving the TV show; that. Now actors are I’d sprint home crossing over all My leading from school so I the time, which is men get younger didn’t miss one really exciting. and younger. If I second of it.

I wouldn’t want to bring my if there’s anything for me, but I’d work home with me like that. But love to do it.” A year went by, may- it doesn’t mean we won’t do somebe more, and I thought, “It’s never thing together one day. I couldn’t going to happen.” But it did. I had ask for anyone better. David’s the so much fun making it! [Pfeiffer best in terms of developing things plays the matriarch of the Collins for women.

In films like Personal Effects with Ashton Kutcher and Cheri with Rupert Friend, you play opposite leading men younger than you. …

Maybe a tad. [laughs] They get younger and younger. I went from Ashton to Rupert to Zac Efron in New Year’s Eve. If I keep on like this, I’m going to get into X-rated material! Well, that’s what happens with men and their leading ladies, right? I was acting in The Russia House opposite Sean

Your dad passed away a while back. How has that affected you?

My father was a force to be reckoned with. And we battled because I’m also incredibly strong-willed. The apple didn’t fall too far from the tree, and so we went around and around; but as cantankerous as it was, I think that’s how deep the love and the bond were between us. He was strong farm stock.

Pick the right pot. Get a big one, at least 20 to 30 inches in both diameter and height, with a drainage hole. Your pot should match the style of your house— if you have a modern home, don’t buy a rococo planter. Stay away from metal; it

gets too hot in the summer and can scorch roots. Best bets: fiberglass, clay, or stone.


Protect against clogs. Soil can seep into and block the drainage hole; keep it out by lining the bottom of the pot

Arrange with care. Choose plants suited to the amount of sunlight the pot will get. Place a tall one (like an evergreen) in the center, then surround with up to three kinds of flowering varieties that vary in height. For a subtle look, pick blossoms of a similar hue. Add trailing flowers around the edge so they will cascade over the side. Water as needed.

Hoops star Shaquille O’Neal indulges in his great-grandma’s ridiculously rich macaroni and cheese—but not too often

I’m not really much of a cook because I don’t have to be. I have four sisters who always cooked for me, and my mother, Lucille O’Neal, is a supermom in the kitchen. When I was growing up, I could go to her or to any one of my sisters and ask them to make me something to eat, and they would say, “Sure, baby!” My favorite was this macaroni and cheese. It’s a recipe handed down from my great-grandmother. When I was a child, my mom would make this for me after every game. Now that I’m older, I need to be more disciplined about what I eat. I have a lot of chicken and fish. But I do love being spoiled with macaroni. You can have it with a formal or informal dinner. Macaroni can be eaten anytime.

Ask Marilyn By Marilyn vos Savant

You once wrote that giving in to pressure to conform is bad for a person intellectually. But I think that in order to function well socially—at work and with friends—you sometimes must do things others want you to do. Apart from moral or ethical situations, do you have a principle that guides your choice of whether to please yourself or please others? —Eike Freidank, Schortens, Germany

I do, and it’s simple. In a social setting (and not one in which you would be wise to exercise leadership), go along happily unless you have a negative reaction. In other words, be a good sport, but don’t violate your individual nature or waste time doing things you don’t enjoy. Instead, go your own way, and do it with a smile and a friendly attitude. Don’t complain, criticize, or condemn. Just escape and be yourself.
