Michelle Pfeiffer has revealed she no longer feels under pressure to look young.

Speaking to Ladies Home Journal the actress said, “Once you get over a certain hump there actually is less pressure. You can begin to look great for your age. You don't have to look young anymore.

 "I've moved over to that other side - I'm 55, which is a little too close to 60, but looking great for my age is okay now."

The Dark Shadows star added that she has made a big change to her lifestyle and that has helped her come to terms with ageing, “I haven’t always been healthy. When I was in my 20s, I smoked two packs of cigarettes a day. I lived on Marlboro Lights and Coca-Cola.”

Pfeiffer currently stars alongside Robert De Niro in The Family which is set for release on November 22.
