Evan­ge­line calls Michelle Pfeif­fer the ‘most beau­ti­ful woman to walk on earth’

Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - Live - - ENTERTAINMENT - IANS

Ac­tor Evan­ge­line Lilly is an ar­dent ad­mirer of her An­tMan and the Wasp co-star Michelle Pfeif­fer’s beauty.

“When we first started do­ing the first Ant-Man film, they ref­er­enced Janet van Dyne a lot. I told [the stu­dio] four years ago that if they ever bring a Janet van Dyne into one of these films, please make it Michelle Pfeif­fer. I re­ally wanted Michelle Pfeif­fer to play my char­ac­ter’s mom,” Lilly said in a state­ment.

Lilly went on to add about the Scar­face (1983) and Bat­man Re­turns (1992) ac­tor, highly re­garded for play­ing both char­ac­ter roles and char­ac­ters with in­tense sex ap­peal in the 1980s and 90s: “Not only is she the most beau­ti­ful woman to have ever walked planet Earth and a great ac­tor, she was also Cat­woman, and that was the only su­per­hero that when I was in my teens I would lay awake at night and fan­ta­sise about. She was so cool.”

Ant-Man and the Wasp is di­rected by Pey­ton Reed, who also helmed Ant-Man (2015), and stars Michelle Pfeif­fer as Janet van Dyne, the orig­i­nal su­per­heroine Wasp.

“When the film was get­ting go­ing, they broke the news to me that Michelle was in fact go­ing to play Hope’s mother. It had noth­ing to do with my re­quest I’m sure, but they re­al­ized one of my dreams by cast­ing her,” Lilly added.

In the film, Scott Lang (played by Paul Rudd) and Hope van Dyne (Lilly) team up af­ter Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) asks them to bat­tle the in­vis­i­ble-in­tan­gi­ble vil­lain Ghost (Han­nah John-Ka­men).
