Michelle Pfeiffer: I was in a cult

Image

ACTRESS Michelle Pfeiffer has revealed how she was once in a bizarre cult that believed humans could exist only on sunlight.

Pfeiffer, the star of The Fabulous Baker Brothers, said she became involved in the cult when she first started her Hollywood career.

Run by a “very controlling” couple who believed in breatharianism – the belief humans can survive without food or water – the cult put the actor on a strict diet she said “nobody can adhere to.”

Pfeiffer, 55, said she only realised what she was part of when she met her first husband, the actor Peter Horton, who was researching the Moonies, a quasi-Christian group regarded by some as a cult organisation, for a movie role.

“We were talking with an ex-Moonie and he was describing the psychological manipulation and I just clicked,” she said in the interview.

Pfieffer, who moved to Los Angeles when she was 20, described the couple as “kind of personal trainers.”

“I wasn’t living with them but I was there a lot and they were always telling me I needed to come more. I had to pay for all the time I was there, so it was financially very draining.”
