Miranda Kerr Denies Being A Buddhist, Says She’s A ChristianBy: Zach Walton - May 12, 2014
Miranda Kerr was thought to have been a Buddhist since her ex-husband, Orlando Bloom, was a practicing Buddhist himself. In a new interview, she says that’s not the case and clarifies her religion.
In a new interview with The Telegraph, Kerr got onto the topic of her ex-husband. She said that Bloom’s faith had led some to report that she was a Buddhist as well. She said that’s not the case as she’s a Christian. It’s a little more complicated than that though:
“I’m not Buddhist. I’m Christian. I pray every day. I meditate every day and I do yoga. I’m not religious, I’m spiritual. And praying is something my grandmother taught me as well. To pray and be grateful, have gratitude, is a big thing for me.”
One of the big takeaways from the interview is that Kerr never really takes anything seriously. Her entire modeling career was based solely on luck and she only did it because it seemed like fun. From what we can gather in the above quote, she also doesn’t take faith all that seriously either. She may be a Christian, but she views it more from a spiritual angle instead of a religious one. The practice of yoga and meditation also shows that she’s not afraid to branch out into other spiritual activities.
Besides talking about her spirituality, Kerr also touched upon her family. Her mother had publicly complained earlier this year that the family never gets to see Kerr anymore. The interview made it seem that Kerr may have a strained relationship with her mother, but she recently shared a photo on Instagram of her entire family back in Australia. She had visited home to celebrate Mother’s Day and everybody looks happy to be present:
She’s also working with various outlets, like Vogue, in lieu of her no longer working for Victoria’s Secret:
