From yoga to Julia Roberts, Hinduism goes mainstream
Brett Buckner (The Star Anniston Star, Jan. 29, 2011)
Julia Roberts shouldn’t be the icon conjured up when envisioning humanity’s oldest living religion. And yet the star of "Eat, Pray, Love" [the terrible movie, not the great book], about a woman’s spiritual journey through India and other places, became just that when she revealed that she, her husband, and their three children were Hindu.
