Is Meg Ryan religious?

Meg Ryan grew up in Connecticut in a Catholic family. In an interview discussing her faith, Ryan said, “I was raised a Catholic, and it didn’t work for me. And it’s because it didn’t work for me that I became a seeker. I love the word seeker because it’s what it says -- that I have no answers; I’m always in the questioning mode. I read Siddhartha when I was fifteen, and I think that changed everything for me.”
