Michelle Pfeiffer has revealed that she was once part of a cult.

The Scarface star was in her early twenties when she became involved with a ‘very controlling’ couple who taught ‘breatharianism’ and tried to convert her.

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

Followers of breatharianism, which has been heavily criticised, believe that humans can live without food and water, as sunlight can provide all the nourishment that the body needs.
