Julia Roberts claims her Hindusim has nothing to do with new film
Eat, Pray, Love...Fly Private! Julia Roberts and husband Danny Moder touched down in Tokyo. The pair flew to Narita International Airport, Tokyo, by private jet. The actress is in the Far East for the very first time to promote her new film Eat, Pray, Love - which has failed to live up to expectations at the U.S. box office.
Julia Roberts claims she has been a practicing Hindu 'for a very long time' and it has nothing to do with her new film.
The 42-year-old actress confirmed her religion as she spoke to Japanese media at a press conference for Eat Pray Love in Tokyo.
She also vowed to follow her mother's wise words and keep her mouth shut about politics and religion in the future.
"I will just say this about Hinduism, which I do practice," she said.
"The conversation [about Hinduism] I had with a very smart writer took place over dinner.
"You write things down in a condensed way and it sort of changes form and unfortunately with the age of the internet and Twitter and chatter and everything else, things get distorted.
"Of all the things that inspired me making this film I did not suddenly make this move and start practicing Hinduism.
"It is something that has been part of my life for a very long time and I realise I should stick with what my mum told me 22 years ago. She said, 'You're an actor – act. Don't talk about politics or religion'."
