Bloom turns to Buddhism

Orlando Bloom has revealed he converted to Buddhism to help him after his split from Kate Bosworth. “The philosophy that I’ve embraced isn’t about sitting under a tree and studying my navel, it’s about studying what is going on in my daily life and using that as fuel to go and live a bigger life,” he told Detail magazine. “When your girlfriend dumps you, when the bill comes through the door and your mum calls you and tells you she can’t handle the stuff in her life—that’s hell, but that’s just one world. If you are aware of what is going on, then you can grow and use that hunger, that fear.”
