'Michelle Pfeiffer' (qv) was born in Santa Ana, CA to Dick and
Donna Pfeiffer. She has an older brother and two younger sisters -
'Dedee Pfeiffer' (qv), and Lori, who dabbled in acting and modeling
but decided against making it her life's work. She 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. She was married to actor/director 'Peter Horton' (qv)
("Gary" of _"thirtysomething" (1987)_ (qv)) in 1981. They were
later divorced, and she then had a three year relationship with
actor 'Fisher Stevens' (qv). 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' (qv) (creator of
"Picket Fences and "Chicago Hope"). On August 5, 1994 their son,
John Henry was born.
