In a video interview with Sally Quinn, producer of “On Faith” at The Washington Post, actress and producer Rita Wilson (one half of a Hollywood celebrity super couple with Tom Hanks) shares why she loves the Greek Orthodox faith (“I love my church. I find the Greek Orthodox Church a sort of a wonderfully moderate, accepting faith.”), her brief period as a reborn Christian during her teenage years, and what gives her life the most meaning.

Some highlights from the interview include:

When you were growing up, were you always a believer?
I’ve always been a believer. I always have been.

What do you pray for or about?
I always start my prayers with a prayer of gratitude for all the blessings in my life because without those, you can’t really think about anything else.

What is the divine for you?
I sense the divine in the goodness that I see in people–their acts of kindness, their acts of selflessness; those people inspire me.
