Pfeiffer continued on, explaining that because the movie ended up going on for six months, she was "starving" by the end of it.

Not all questions need to be asked. "Well, OK. I don't know, but I was playing a cocaine addict so that was part of the physicality of the part, which you have to consider", she began.

The moderator later defended his question in an emailed response to IndieWire. "Being an artist, it's really presenting to people what is the truth and not sugarcoated, and I felt that by allowing people to observe who this character is and the sacrifices that she's made said more than getting up on any soapbox and preaching to people". (I've chose to not list the actual moderator's name because he's getting enough heat already for this and there's no way you know who he is anyway, so I'll spare him another Google alert.) Steven Bauer came on stage first and did the tongue wag from the movie for the crowd - and then pretty much never stopped talking from there. I was starving by the end.

Ultimately, Pfeiffer said, "I don't know, time just went on". "A three-or four-month shoot?"

"I think I was living on tomato soup and Marlboros", she said, EW reported.

Following a screening of the 1983 classic, the 59-year-old actress sat down for a Q&A and shut down a question by moderator Jesse Kornbluth about her weight during the filming of Scarface, which was met with loud booing from the audience.

Pfieffer said concerned crew members were bringing her bagels because of how thin she was getting.

Although Pfeiffer's Elvira is the lovely girlfriend to two drug kingpins, she stands up for herself throughout the film.

The role went on to become one of the actress' most iconic. And that was really the real reason I hadn't worked. The question may not have been the best one for the audience, however, Peiffer answered the question about her character Elvira who was addicted of cocaine which is why her character needed to have a certain amount of weight. "A lot of the old-school Cubans were concerned with me nearly to the point that they weren't really sure that my participation in a Hollywood movie was worth me downgrading or degrading or tainting the image of their accomplishments in the new society", the Cuban-born actor said.
