Michelle Pfeiffer used to be part of a cult that believed you could survive on sunlight alone, not food and water.

Michelle Pfeiffer sat down with the Sunday Telegraph to promote her new movie, ‘The Family’ (which is doing HORRIFIC in the box office. Rotten Tomatoes has it at a 34%). Anyway, Michelle talks about the highs and lows of Hollywood, and what it’s like to be an actress over 40 trying to get movies at this age. She also opened up about being part of a “cult” when she came to Hollywood, where you didn’t eat or drink – instead you lived were a “breatharianism” where you live off of sunlight alone.

When she realized she was in a cult: Michelle was ‘saved’ when she was introduced to her first husband, Peter Horton, the actor. He had been cast in a film about the Moonies, the name given to followers of Rev Moon Sun-myung’s Unification Church. She said that while she was helping him with research “on this cult” she realised: “I was in one. We were talking with an ex-Moonie and he was describing the psychological manipulation and I just clicked.”

Her leaders were like ”personal trainers”: “They worked with weights and put people on diets. Their thing was vegetarianism. 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. They believed that people in their highest state were breatharian.”

On aging and plastic surgery: “The loss of youth, the loss of beauty — it definitely plays havoc with your psyche. There’s this transition from, ‘Wow, she looks really young for her age,’ to, ‘She looks great for her age.’ And there’s a big difference. I’m now at, ‘She looks great for her age.’ There is certainly a mourning process to that. I used to think I would never have surgery but it’s really hard to say never. I’m in the ‘never say never’ camp now.”

On adopting a child before marrying David Kelley: “One thing I’m not short on is courage. I’d been really desperate to start a family for a long time. And then I was 33 and I just thought ‘You know, I don’t want to wait any more’.” She said that her desire to have children “was colouring my relationships. I was maybe hanging on to some that I shouldn’t have.”

It’s scary to think what lengths people will go to in order to stay slim. “Live on sunlight alone”? That’s crazy! To this day Michelle maintains a strict vegan diet – and look at her body! She’s doing something right!

Michelle Pfeiffer, Fergie, Zac Efron, Hilary Swank, Sofia Vergara and MORE at the ‘New Years Eve’ premiere!

‘New Years Eve’ premiered in Hollywood last night, and most of the movie’s many stars were there!

Michelle Pfeiffer wore a beautiful purple Dolce & Gabbana dress (what do you think about her shoe choice?). She looks incredible for 53!!

15-year-old Abigail Breslin wore a cute ballerina dress with a wire petticoat. Looks cute on her!

Alyssa Milano could definitely look better. I know she just had a baby, and I’m not even talking about the extra weight. I think the dress is ill-fitting.

Sofia Vergara is beautiful, but her dress looks so budget. Meh, not a fan.

Hilary Swank is wearing Elie Saab, which I don’t totally hate…. only slightly hate.

And FERGIE…. ugh, don’t even get me started. She’s wearing a dress by Monique Lhuilllier. The dress might be okay, I’m just not a big Fergie person. I cannot unsee what she wore yesterday.

Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon and more at Elle Magazine’s Women in Hollywood Tribute!

Nine of Hollywood’s hottest female stars were honored last night at Elle Magazine’s 18th Annual Women in Hollywood tribute.

The women celebrated this year included Barbra Streisand, Jennifer Aniston, Freida Pinto, Evan Rachel Wood, Naomi Watts, Michelle Pfeiffer, Viola Davis, Stacey Snider and Elizabeth Olsen, who received the Calvin Klein Collection Emerging Star award.

The clear winner of the night was Streisand, who picked up the L’Oreal Paris Legend award. Most of the women at the event looked up to and were inspired by the singer/actress’ career. Oscar-winner Kathryn Bigelow, who directed “The Hurt Locker,” called Streisand “a world icon” and “somebody who has mastered virtually every art form imaginable: directing, acting, composing, singing, producing, writing,” as she introduced her on stage.

Fellow nominee Aniston told the singer that she loved her, and Pinto added that she was honored just to be “sharing the same oxygen” with Streisand.

“You’re a legend not only in Hollywood but literally all over the world,” Pinto said to Streisand. “I can say that because I come from India.”

In her acceptance speech, Streisand told the crowd that only seven percent of the top 250 films were directed by women, and she encouraged those in the audience to continue to break barriers in the entertainment industry. “Let’s be bold and don’t wait for the phone to ring,” she said. “Create your own material. Tell me a story.”

Check out Elle’s short documentary on their top Women in Hollywood, featuring interviews with the honorees below.

What do you think of Jennifer’s dress? The metallic Kaufmanfranco mini-dress looks pretty hot on the actress, if you ask me. Check out all the other hot looks below!! Tons of pics to look through!

Johnny Depp’s true ‘Dark Shadows’ vampire revealed!

Entertainment Weekly has just posted the first official look at the new Tim Burton/Johnny Depp film, ‘Dark Shadows’. The film stars Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Helena Bonham Carter, Eva Green, Jackie Earle Haley, Jonny Lee Miller, Bella Heathcote, Chloe Moretz and Gulliver McGrath.

Here’s the movie description:

In the year 1752, Joshua and Naomi Collins, with young son Barnabas, set sail from Liverpool, England to start a new life in America. But even an ocean was not enough to escape the mysterious curse that has plagued their family. Two decades pass and Barnabas (Johnny Depp) has the world at his feet—or at least the town of Collinsport, Maine. The master of Collinwood Manor, Barnabas is rich, powerful and an inveterate playboy…until he makes the grave mistake of breaking the heart of Angelique Brouchard (Eva Green). A witch, in every sense of the word, Angelique dooms him to a fate worse than death: turning him into a vampire, and then burying him alive.

Two centuries later, Barnabas is inadvertently freed from his tomb and emerges into the very changed world of 1972. He returns to Collinwood Manor to find that his once-grand estate has fallen into ruin. The dysfunctional remnants of the Collins family have fared little better, each harboring their own dark secrets. Matriarch Elizabeth Collins Stoddard (Michelle Pfeiffer) has called upon live-in psychiatrist, Dr. Julia Hoffman (Helena Bonham Carter), to help with her family troubles.

Also residing in the manor is Elizabeth’s ne’er-do-well brother, Roger Collins (Jonny Lee Miller); her rebellious teenage daughter Carolyn Stoddard (Chloe Moretz); and Roger’s precocious 10-year-old son, David Collins (Gulliver McGrath). The mystery extends beyond the family, to caretaker Willie Loomis, played by Jackie Earle Haley, and David’s new nanny, Victoria Winters, played by Bella Heathcote.
