American actress Michelle Marie Pfeiffer was born on April 29, 1958. She was nominated for three Academy Awards as well as a Primetime Emmy, and she won a Golden Globe and a British Academy Film Award for being one of the most successful actresses of the 1980s and 1990s. Here you will read about Michelle Pfeiffer age in Grease 2 and other details.
Pfeiffer, a Santa Ana, California native who dabbled in court stenography before embarking on acting, came from a family of performers. She began her career with a few roles in television and films in 1978, and her first major role was in the critically and economically unsuccessful Grease 2 (1982).

She became dissatisfied with being typecast in stereotypically pretty roles and actively sought out more challenging material, eventually landing the role of gangster moll Elvira Hancock in the 1983 film Scarface. She continued to rise to prominence with appearances in films like 1987’s The Witches of Eastwick and 1988’s Married to the Mob, for which she received the first of six consecutive Golden Globe Award nominations.
She received two Best Supporting Actress Oscar nods for her roles in Dangerous Liaisons (1988) and The Fabulous Baker Boys (1989), and she won the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Motion Picture—Drama for her work in the latter.
Based on Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey’s 1971 stage musical of the same name, Grease 2 is a 1982 American musical romantic comedy movie and the sequel to the 1978 film Grease. The film was directed and danced by Patricia Birch, who also choreographed the original stage show and the previous film, and was produced by Allan Carr and Robert Stigwood under the original title More Grease.
The story takes place again at Rydell High School two years after the events of the first film’s graduation, this time with an entirely new ensemble led by Maxwell Caulfield and Michelle Pfeiffer in her first leading role.

U.S. box office receipts of $15 million (against a production budget of $11 million) were a long cry from the $132 million brought in by the original film’s release on the same date in 1981.
In spite of Pfeiffer’s and Adrian Zmed’s and Christopher McDonald’s star turns, the film was met with a cool critical reception upon its initial release. Grease 2 has, many years after its first release, established a loyal following.
Grease 2 Plot
It’s 1961, two years after the events of the original Grease, and the first day of high school has arrived (“Alma Mater” from the original musical), and Principal McGee and her assistant Blanche are horrified to see the students, including the new T-Birds and Pink Ladies, arriving at school (“Back to School Again”).
Stephanie Zinone is in charge of the Pink Ladies now that she has “outgrown” her relationship with Johnny Nogerelli, the egotistical, macho, dominant, and sometimes immature new leader of the motorcycling T-Birds.
