The Ant-Man and the Wasp star joined Instagram in January. Her first post was a Batman Returns clip, in which Catwoman backflips out of a building before it explodes. “MEOW Instagram,” she wrote at the time.

The Scarface actress took a four-year break from acting, which she explained to Interview magazine upon her return. “The first thing that comes to mind is I’m an empty nester now,” she said in March 2017. “I’ve never lost my love for acting. I feel really at home on the movie set. I’m a more balanced person, honestly, when I’m working. But I was pretty careful about where I shot, how long I was away, whether or not it worked out with the kids’ schedule. And I got so picky that I was unhirable.”

She continued: “And then … I don’t know, time just went on. And now, you know, when the student is ready, the teacher appears. I’m more open now, my frame of mind, because I really want to work now, because I can.”

Pfeiffer and husband David E. Kelley, who wed in 1993, share daughter Claudia, 26, and son John, 24.

The Oscar nominee admitted her fear that fans might consider her a “fraud” because she “didn’t have any formal training” before her career launched. “I was just getting by and learning in front of the world,” she told Interview. “So I’ve always had this feeling that one day they’re going to find out that I’m really a fraud, that I really don’t know what I’m doing.”
