Michelle Pfeiffer makes a welcome return to the big screen as a retired courtesan in 'Cheri,' a costume drama set in Belle Epoque Paris. After a lifetime of sex as purely a business transaction, her character, Lea de Lonval, finally falls head over heels -- unfortunately, her love is a man 30 years her junior (Rupert Friend) and the son of a former rival prostitute (Kathy Bates).

It's a rare lead performance for the mother of two last seen in 2007's 'Hairspray' and 'Stardust.' In an exclusive interview, the 51-year-old Pfeiffer told us about reuniting with her 'Dangerous Liaisons' director and screenwriter for 'Cheri,' playing Catwoman again and aging gracefully. (Just don't call her a cougar...)
