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

Pfeiffer, the star of “Dangerous Liaisons” and “Batman Returns,” said she became involved in the cult when she first began 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, told Britain’s Sunday Telegraph she only realized 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 organization, 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.
