Orlando Bloom

As it turns out, the dreamy actor, known best for his roles in "The Lord of the Rings" and "Pirates of the Caribbean," has a penchant for inner calm. Bloom was raised in the Church of England before trading in sacraments for sutras. In 2004, he became a full member of Soka Gakkai International, a Nichiren Buddhist-based lay association. Along with 60 others, his formal conversion occurred at SGI's headquarters at Taplow Court Mansion in Maidenhead, England. During a relationship with Kate Bosworth, his Buddhist ways attracted her to the religion as well. Photo courtesy of Schneewante.
