Michelle Pfeiffer didn't realize she was in a cult until it was almost too late. Speaking to The Sunday Telegraph's Stella magazine, the 55-year-old actress reveals that she was taken advantage of by a "very controlling" couple when she first moved to Hollywood in the early '80s.
The "kind of personal trainers" believed in breatharianism—the ability to live without food and water—and put the future movie star on a diet "nobody can adhere to," Pfeiffer recalls. "They worked with weights and put people on diets. Their thing was vegetarianism."
