Which A-list Hollywood actors have a progressive spiritual orientation?

Hello Everyone,

I've written a self-help book designed to help people improve their lives using the timeless life principles found in some Hollywood movies. I'd like to get spiritually-oriented A-list Hollywood actors to contribute to the book with text describing how they might be applying these principles to their lives. Actors like Jim Carrey, Richard Gere, and Shirley MacLaine.

Outside of these, however, I don't know which actors might have a progressive spiritual orientation, such as New Thought or Buddhism. or who might align with people like Deepak Chopra, Eckhart Tolle, Marianne Williamson, Wayne Dyer, Alan Watts, Osho, etc.

Can you give me a few names based on what you might have heard or read? Do you have any ideas about how I might compile such a list (other than research on the Internet)? I'd like to get as many actors to contribute as I can. (I feel like if I can just get one on board, that could open the door to many others.) Of course, I also have to find a way to reach them---another challenge.:) Any tips, suggestions, or contact names would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Warm regards,
David

I don't think Hollywood and spirituality mix very well. Hollywood actors are by definition shallow and materialistic. You may have more luck in the music industry, but a lot of those people are into the dark stuff.

Lady Gaga is a big Osho fan, I hear.

Jay-Z and Beyonce are members of OTO, Ordo Templo Oriensis, the magickal order founded by Aleister Crowley.

A lot of Heavy Metal and Hard Rock people are satanists, some of them openly, such as Marilyn Manson.

If you're looking to find mainstream spirituality in this community, I think you'll be disappointed.

There are more than enough exceptions

Thanks for your post. Sure, actors can be materialistic, not to mention insecure. But this is a generalization that misses the point that there are always exceptions. Besides, being materialistic and insecure and being spiritually-oriented are not mutually exclusive. We all hold these tendencies; it's called the ego.

I believe there are many among the hundreds of A-list actors who are sufficiently like-minded to assist me. For example, I remember reading how Jennifer Aniston publicly recommended to Owen Wilson that he read "The Power of Now" by Eckhart Tolle after Owen's suicide attempt. Demi Moore has publicly admitted the major influence that Deepak Chopra has had on her life, and Emma Stone says that she meditates (which indicates she MAY be spiritually oriented). This is the kind of thing I was looking for with my post. :) All in all, I need about 20 to 30 people on board, which I think is reasonable.

Hugh Jackman. This is part one of an interview with him. These are excerpts from a longer documentary about other celebs and spirituality. I'll try and find that too. I know Seal was another one.

"Oh my God" by Peter Rodger was the documentary.
