was left speechless during a recent promotional trip to Germany - when one journalist described the Hollywood star's body as "old and decrepit."
The Dangerous Liaisons
actress, who is currently promoting new romantic drama Cheri
, celebrated her 51st birthday this April and insists she is embracing growing old gracefully. But she was stunned when one female reporter criticized her looks in such a harsh manner.
Pfeiffer says, "She asked, 'How does it feel to have an old and decrepit body?' And at first I didn't understand her, I was like, 'Sorry, did you just say I had an old and decrepit body?' and she was like, 'Ja (yes). How does it feel?'"
The actress recognized the woman from a past press conference when she attacked the star's fashion sense - and Pfeiffer responded to the criticism of her appearance by giving the reporter a telling off for her consistently rude comments.
Pfeiffer reveals, "She was the same woman who'd asked me years before, because I remembered her. She'd said, 'Do you think what you're wearing is appropriate?' She was like, 60 and had on a miniskirt! And I said, 'Well, you're the one who asked me two years ago if I was dressed appropriate... (sic)'."
