Michelle Pfeiffer is one of the most well-known actresses in Hollywood; but, in contrast to the majority of Hollywood stars, she has managed to keep a low profile in terms of her personal life.
In the world of show business, a happy marriage like the one she has with David E. Kelley is quite unusual. This couple has remained together for almost the whole of the almost three decades since their wedding in 1993.
Kelley’s screenplay career has earned her important prizes in some of the most popular courtroom dramas in the nation, while Pfeiffer continues to be revered as a legend in the entertainment industry.
Together, the power couple has achieved great success in their chosen professions.
Even though Michelle Pfeiffer isn’t reserved in her role as an actor, she nevertheless makes it a point to avoid being in awkward social settings whenever she can.
She said, “There’s a phrase in ‘The Age of Innocence’ – I’m not sure whether it’s truly in the book or just in the movie – that says, ‘Americans want to get away from entertainment even more rapidly than they want to get to it,'” and she went on to remark, “I’ve been doing that my whole life.”
Pfeiffer’s husband, David E. Kelley, has also had a successful career in the entertainment industry.
During the almost three decades that they have spent together, the two have served as each other’s primary source of moral support.
Pfeiffer said that the fact that she has been happily married for over 30 years brings her a great deal of satisfaction in life. In reference to Kelley, she said, “I never take him for granted.
My spouse is one of the most honest people I’ve ever come across, and I’ve met a lot of people. All of those things are true about him, including his sense of humor, his intellect, and how adorable he is.”
The actress went on to say that she “got pretty fortunate” with David and that she “chose really well” with him.
She also stated that she “chose really well.” In light of the fact that Kelley and Pfeiffer started what was effectively the process of raising a family at such an early stage in their relationship, it is safe to say that theirs was not a typical partnership in many respects.
When Pfeiffer and her partner first got together, she was already in the middle of the adoption procedure for a kid. When she finally got the go-ahead to adopt her daughter Claudia, she had only been seeing Kelley for a little over two months at that point.
Pfeiffer said, “When she arrived, he and I had only been dating for approximately two months. Because of this, the youngster was immediately with us, and I had the opportunity to see him in a setting that most surely would have differentiated the boys from the men, so it is plain to see that he more than lived up to the expectations.”
Pfeiffer added: “Because of this, we were each able to experience the other as a parent before we moved forward in our relationship together. This, in some weird way, relieved the strain that was being put on us as a pair.
We diverted our attention to something else. It came at a very convenient moment, i mean, it’s a true monument to the sort of guy he is, but it also speaks to the fact that the conventional method of doing things isn’t necessarily the greatest way to go about doing things.”
The happy couple was able to give birth to their second child, John, exactly one year after they had adopted Claudia. It was at this time that Pfeiffer decided to take a break from her acting career in order to concentrate on the responsibilities of motherhood.
On the other hand, when her children were older, she resumed her career.
In 2018, Pfeiffer was quoted as saying, “I just discovered that I’m not done, i still have a lot of work to do, and I also have a lot more to say. I don’t see myself ever stepping away from the workforce.”
Pfeiffer and Kelley do not intertwine their professional and personal lives, and as a result, they are able to have a positive connection with their children at home.
