LTRP Note: As Lighthouse Trails reported previously, Hollywood darling Julia Roberts played the leading role in the summer release New Age movie, Eat, Pray, Love. Now, this in – Julia Roberts converts to Hinduism after filming the movie. What is so troubling is that thousands, if not millions, of viewers of the movie could be potentially drawn toward Hinduism, especially after learning that Roberts herself has converted.
August 7, 2010 — News comes today that when Julia Roberts was shooting the film ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ she reportedly made a big decision: To convert to Hinduism.
The ‘Pretty Woman’ actress is the daughter of a Baptist and a Catholic, says Jam Movies, who claims that while filming in India Roberts took a spiritual pilgrimage much like that of ‘Eat Pray Love’ author Elizabeth Gilbert.
Out of that experience, the movie star learned about yoga, meditation and reincarnation — something in which Julia Roberts is said to now hold as her own belief.
Roberts told Elle magazine:
‘I’m definitely a practicing Hindu.’
Off the set, Julia and her family chant and celebrate life — a peaceful existence for the new believer in Hinduism who stars in ‘Eat, Pray, Love’. The new movie based on Elizabeth Gilbert’s memoirs debuts in theaters next week. Click here to continue.
