Michelle Pfeiffer says she became involved with a cult when she first moved to Hollywood, but didn't realize she was in one until she left.
The actress told Britain's Daily Telegraph that upon moving to Los Angeles at age 20, she became involved with a "very controlling couple" who practiced breatharianism — the belief that the human body doesn't need food or water, only sunlight, to survive. It was only when she met her first husband, actor Peter Horton, that she realized she was part of a cult, because he was researching cults for a role in a film about the Moonies.
Win Butler of Arcade Fire, Reggie Watts, Jason Schwartzman
YouTube held its first-ever Music Awards Sunday, and the show was ... awkward.
Hosts Jason Schwartzman and Reggie Watts emphasized that the awards show was unscripted, but viewers probably would have been able to tell that even without the reminder.

Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Sasha Farber

Though her run on Dancing came to an end when she and partner Sasha Farber were unexpectedly sent home on last week's show, Polizzi says she has no regrets. TVGuide.com caught up with the reality star to get her thoughts on her shocking elimination, the judges' feedback, and her new nickname, courtesy of Tom Bergeron.
