Picture Trivia
          Many Hollywood actresses were considered to play the role of Catwoman in the film Batman Returns (1992) but Michelle Pfeiffer was fortunate to be chosen. Among them were Lena Olin and Madonna. Sean Young and Susan Sarandon very much like to portray Catwoman. The role was also offered to Demi Moore and Nicole Kidman but they both declined. Annette Bening was first chosen for the role but she was pregnant at the time and so she was replaced by Pfeiffer.
          Pfeiffer was paid three million dollars in contrast to the two million dollars offered to Bening.
          In the six months of filming Batman Returns, 60 Catwoman costumes were used by Pfeiffer each of which cost 1,000 dollars.
          There is one thing that Pfeiffer did in the film that perhaps none of the other contending actresses can or would consent to do – that is put a live bird inside her mouth.
