In the September issue of Elle Magazine Julia Roberts had this to say about her family being Hindus

We are definitely practicing Hindu

So when did this conversion to Hinduism take place?. According to USA Today the conversion took place during filming of Eat, Love and Pray in India. She was captivated by the Hindu religion while in India and experienced a spiritual awakening.

Julia and family now regularly go to the temple to “chant, pray and celebrate”. Julia has also renamed her production company to Red Om Films. Her children now have Hindu names. Her twins Hazel and Phinnaeus are named Laxmi and Ganesh, while Henry will be called Krishna Balram.

Roberts has also adopted the belief in reincarnation and she hopes her next life will be a “quiet” one.
