Julia Roberts was brought up by a Catholic mother and a Baptist father. She became interested in Hinduism when she saw a picture of the Hindu guru Neem Karoli Baba. She's said during interviews that she felt drawn to this picture and wanted to know more about this person. Since filming "Eat, Love, Pray" movie, Roberts and her family have now converted to Hinduism. While filming in India, Roberts and her family went to temple to "chant, pray and celebrate."
Roberts even named her production company after her faith. The company is called Red Om Films. The 'Om' symbol is considered the mystical syllable containing the universe.
