She later took sixth place in the Miss California contest that same year.

Two of Pfeiffer's younger sisters debated taking up modelling as a career, but both ultimately pursued other interests.

After winning her home county's beauty competition, she made her acting debut in an episode of the classic drama series Fantasy Island.

The actress later made her film debut in the 1980 teen comedy film The Hollywood Knights, where she starred along Tony Danza and Fran Drescher.

Pfeiffer would go on to enjoy a long-running film career, although she has occasionally ventured back into modelling, and was the face of a 2005 campaign for Giorgio Armani.

In an interview with Elle, the Batman Returns actress spoke about how her extended period of time at home has made her more comfortable in her own skin, without makeup or any other beauty procedures. 

'I feel like we all, it just sounds so corny, but I'm sensing that we're all discovering that our natural beauty is enough in a way that I don't think we understood before,' she remarked.

Pfeiffer did admit, however, that she would be grateful to undergo a few spa procedures, just to take the edge off of quarantine.

'At the same time, what I wouldn't give for a facial. Or just a manicure and a pedicure. It's like I could use a little TLC, I think,' the actress said.

The star has been married to celebrated TV producer and writer David E. Kelley since 1993. They share two children: daughter Claudia, 28, and son John, 26.
