Julia Roberts Converted to Hinduism

Julia Roberts has converted to Hinduism since she started filming her latest movie 'Eat Pray Love' last year.

Ever since shooting wrapped she confesses she often visits temples to "chant, pray and celebrate."

Julia, who was born to a Baptist and Catholic couple in the US, hopes to be reincarnated as "something quiet" after the stress of her celebrity lifestyle.

She told Elle magazine: "I'm definitely a practicing Hindu. Golly, I've been so spoiled with my friends and family in this life. Next time I want to be just something quiet and supporting."

During filming in India last year, Julia completely immersed herself in the Hindu culture and was "astounded" during a visit to the Taj Mahal.

In Eat, Pray and Love, Julia plays a woman hoping to find herself through Hindu spirituality. The movie is already getting a lot of buzz so if you haven't done so already, mark your calendars for August 13th--see you at the theaters!
