After following Kabbalah since forever, Hollywood actress and entrepreneur of GOOP, Gwyneth Paltrow is converting to Judaism. Page Six reports on her conscious uncoupling from the religion:
The actress is quietly converting after years of following Kabbalah, which originated in Judaism, and being friends with Michael Berg, co-director of the Kabbalah Centre.
While Paltrow’s rep didn’t respond to numerous requests for comment, her late father was film producer Bruce Paltrow, a Jew, while her mother, Blythe Danner, is a Christian. The “Iron Man” star has previously revealed that she was raised both Jewish and Christian, which “was such a nice way to grow up.”
Paltrow — who went on Jimmy Kimmel’s show this week to talk about her upcoming Stand Up to Cancer benefit — told You magazine, “Creating a meal for my family and friends, sitting together, eating, laughing and talking, that’s when I’m happy. Oh my God, if you saw the amount of food that I do. I am the original Jewish mother. I make meals from these new recipes that look, smell and taste like the food I always cooked, but are also super healthy. That is an additional joy.”
She probably thinks she does religious stuff better than the rest of us…
