Pfeiffer began to pursue an acting career in 1978 and had her first leading role in the musical film ''Grease 2'' (1982).

Her roles in ''Dangerous Liaisons'' (1988) and ''The Fabulous Baker Boys'' (1989) garnered her two consecutive Academy Award nominations, for Best Supporting Actress and Best Actress, respectively; her portrayal of lounge singer Susie Diamond in the latter is one of the most acclaimed of her career.
Pfeiffer went on to star as Catwoman / Selina Kyle in Tim Burton's superhero film ''Batman Returns'' (1992), following which she won the Silver Bear for Best Actress and earned a third Academy Award nomination for playing a troubled housewife in ''Love Field'' (1992). She continued to gain praise for her performances in the dramas ''The Age of Innocence'' (1993) and ''White Oleander'' (2002), and the horror films ''Wolf'' (1994) and ''What Lies Beneath'' (2000). During this time, she also produced a series of films under her production company Via Rosa Productions. After a hiatus from acting in 2002, she returned with the musical ''Hairspray'' (2007).
