Faith is in the stars
Faith is in the stars 
Hollywood has stars, glitz, glamour and - it seems - faith in abundance. Celebrities in the last ten years have decided that faith and religion are no longer pass. Flaunting your new found salvation has become almost a fashion accessory in Hollywood, with stars expressing their faith both physically and verbally. From the Western fascination with Buddhism to the new in religion, Kabbalah, Hollywood is an eclectic spiritual melting pot.

Recently we heard about Madonnas new-found peace, obtained through her affiliations with Kabbalah. About a decade ago it was Tom Cruise and John Travolta singing the praises of the Church of Scientology. Some critics simply claim that religion and spirituality is just another Hollywood fad, but there is also the possibility that celebrities, not unlike the rest of us, need something to believe in.

Of course Hollywood being what it is most celebrities do not just stroll on down to their local church once a week, they are looking for something different. Often, they choose to take exotic and/or controversial routes in their search for enlightenment. And every few years, it seems Hollywood has a new it Guru. Many of them seem to be attracted to the non traditional, and many of the faiths that become popular among the whos who are centred very much on the individual.
