‘Fatal Attraction’ star Glenn Close says she lost out on a normal childhood due to her upbringing in a cult. Close, 67, says she spent part of her childhood in a religious cult known as the Moral Re-Armament, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

“You basically weren’t allowed to do anything, or you were made to feel guilty about any unnatural desire. “If you talk to anybody who was in a group that basically dictates how you’re supposed to live and what you’re supposed to say and how you’re supposed to feel, from the time you’re seven till the time you’re 22, it has a profound impact on you,” she said.

Her father William Taliaferro Close first joined the cult and Close managed to leave it only when she joined a college. The actress says she was able to move on with her life only after forgiving the cult and following her dreams.

“I always thought, the way life works, the burden of forgiveness is on the child. That’s the way it goes. Forgiveness is probably the most revolutionary concept there is right now in our world. Because without forgiveness, you just perpetuate what has been before. You (have to) say, ‘It’s going to stop with me’,” she said. PTI BK –
