Julia Roberts converts to Hinduism
Hollywood superstar Julia Roberts has converted to Hinduism in the hope of having a peaceful life in her next incarnation.
The 42-year-old actress, who was born to a Baptist and Catholic couple, is now a practising Hindu after visiting India while shooting her upcoming movie 'Eat Pray Love'.
In the film, Roberts plays a woman hoping to find herself through Hindu spirituality.
Speaking to the September issue of Elle magazine, the Academy award winning actress said she now goes to temples to "chant, pray and celebrate" accompanied by her cameraman husband Daniel Moder and their three children, Hazel, Phinnaeus and Henry.
"I'm definitely a practising Hindu. I've been so spoiled with my friends and family in this life. Next time I want to be just something quiet and supporting," said Roberts.
The 'Pretty Woman' star was introduced to the Eastern philosophy while shooting for 'Eat Pray Love', the movie, based on the best-selling book by Elizabeth Gilbert, Roberts plays a recently-divorced woman travelling the world trying to find herself.
The character visits Italy for food, India for spirituality and Bali, where she finds love.
To talk about the Hollywood actors who convert to Indian religion we also have Richard Gere who is greatly influenced by Buddhism and is practising this philosophy and devotedly following Dalai Lama. People are turning spiritualistic these days to attain tranquility.
