Actress Michelle Pfeiffer admits to being former cult member

By Joyce Lupiani. CREATED Nov 5, 2013

Actress Michelle Pfeiffer has revealed that she was once in a cult. And the cult forbade food and water.

Pfeiffer made the revelation during an interview for The Sunday Telegraph's Stella magazine. 

The 55-year-old actress says that it happened after she became involved with a "very controlling" couple.

The couple believed in breatharianism -- the ability to live without food and water.

Pfeiffer says she was saved by her first husband Peter Horton.
