SCARFACE: Michelle Pfeiffer, Al Pacino, Steven Bauer and Brian De Palma

So the film SCARFACE is now considered a masterpiece.  It is one.  Everyone gives amazing performances and Brian De Palma did a great job directing.  There was a forum to honor the film and note its importance.  Appearing were Michelle Pfeiffer, Al Pacino, Brian De Palma and Steven Bauer. 
For some reason, the male moderator focused on Pfeiffer’s appearance and, as Hunter Harris (VULTURE) notes, only Michelle’s appearance:
By the end, Kornbluth asked Pfeiffer one question about her performance. Pacino, De Palma, and Bauer made it through the conversation without being asked about their weight.
EW covers it as well and notes Michelle’s strong praise for Al.

Remember, they worked together again on FRANKIE & JOHNNY.

Boo for ABC which did note the incident but whose headline is “Pacino, De Palma remember ‘Scareface’ at Tribeca reunion.”  The story has no hook without Michelle Pfeiffer but putting "Pfeiffer" in the headline was too much for ABC NEWS apparently.
