The star’s beauty is so renowned she has even been mentioned in several pop songs.

Vance Joy’s 2013 track Riptide included the line: “I swear she's destined for the screen, closest thing to Michelle Pfeiffer that you've ever seen".

While Bruno Mars' and Mark Ronson mega hit Uptown Funk also referenced her beauty, with the line: "This hit, That ice cold, Michelle Pfeiffer, That white gold".

Not exactly Keats, but Pfeiffer has previously said to be "incredibly flattered" to be praised in this way.

Normally associated with cinema from the 1980s and 90s, the actress has received exposure to younger audiences through roles such as Janet Van Dyne in Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp, and Avengers: Endgame, as well as starring as Queen Ingrith in this year’s Maleficent: Mistress of Evil.
