Michelle Pfeiffer: I was in a ‘Cult,’ Under the Spell of a Couple Who Preached ‘Breatharianism’

EDITORIAL: Cults have been growing and thriving in California as long as there’s a been a place called Hollywood. I remember all the news stories about the cult activity out west during the 60s and the 70s.

Cults in California have grown in epic proportions since then. They are nothing more than groups of con artists and predators who prey on the young and naive. I would bet many actors have similar stories but unfortunately, many of them are still members of cults there.

We know there’s plenty of satanic and sex cults running in the entertainment industries and we watch as media celebrates every time they take down another young victim’s soul!

Personal trainers advocated that sunlight, not food or water was all that’s necessary for life, ‘The Family’ star revealed in a new interview.

Michelle Pfeiffer says she found herself in a ‘cult’-like situation with a couple when she first arrived in Hollywood in 1978. She’s pictured in a promotional photo for the short-lived sitcom version of the movie ‘National Lampoon’s Animal House’ in 1979.

Talk about a dangerous liaison.

Actress Michelle Pfeiffer revealed in an interview with Britain’s The Telegraph that she was part of a “cult” that believed humans could survive without food or water back when she first arrived in Hollywood.

Pfeiffer, now 55, says her ordeal began when she first arrived in Hollywood as an impressionable twenty-year-old actress and fell in with a couple who espoused a “breatharianism” philosophy.

“They worked with weights and put people on diets. Their thing was vegetarianism,” she told The Telegraph’s Stella Magazine while promoting her latest film, The Family.

“They were very controlling. 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.”

She adds that she didn’t realize that she was in a damaging cult-like relationship until years later after she met her first husband, actor Peter Horton.

Horton, who she divorced in 1988, had been cast in a movie about Rev. Moon Sun-myung’s Unification Church and his research into the Moonies led her to see parallels in her own situation, Pfeiffer said.

She declined to reveal the identity of the Los Angeles-based couple, except that they were personal trainers.

“We were talking with an ex-Moonie and he was describing the psychological manipulation and I just clicked,” Pfeiffer told the Telegraph.
