# Not Religious

In an interview with The Guardian, Jennifer Connelly said

I wasn’t brought up with any religion at all. At school and in my early 20s I read every religious text I could get my hands on - Buddhist scriptures, Hindu texts, the Qur’an and the Bible. I wanted to feel like something made sense to me, that there was something sacred I could feel aligned with. Then I had Kai and thought this is something that is really concrete and it’s sort of a practice in itself - trying to raise him well. It comes with its own set of moral imperatives and it keeps me thinking about the right things and it feels, in a very profound way, a home, which is what I was looking for.
