Michelle Pfeiffer: I Hate the Term 'Cougar'

Don't call Michelle Pfeiffer a cougar.

The actress, 51, tells InStyle: "I so hate that term! Colette wrote these novels [about older women with younger men] so long ago, but even today they're ahead of their time in the way we perceive women's power and sexuality."

As for her take on plastic surgery, she says, "Well, I think your face should still move. And you should be recognizable to your friends. One actress I knew years ago, a really lovely person, had some stuff done, and literally, every time I run into her now I don't recognize her. Every time!"
