Hollywood actress photographed carrying a Quran in New York
Lindsay Lohan has reportedly turned to Islam after she was photographed carrying a copy of the Quran in New York.
The Hollywood actress was completing the first day of her court-ordered community service at a Brooklyn children’s centre, when she was pictured carrying a hard copy of the Muslim holy book.
The Daily Mail reports that Lohan, who is of Irish and Italian heritage and was raised as a Catholic, posted an Instagram image quoting the Quran but later deleted it.
During interview with Oprah Winfrey last year, Lohan admitted that she was becoming a more spiritual person.
"I'm a very spiritual person and I've become more spiritual as time has gone on," she told the talk show host. "I'm really in touch, whether it's prayer or meditation... there are so many powers greater than me in the world. I've been blessed and lucky enough to have been given a gift to share with other people,” she said.
Lohan was ordered to carry out 125 hours of community service following a 2012 car crash in Los Angeles, after which she pleaded guilty to reckless driving and lying to police. The actress is due to work eight-hour days at the children’s centre in order to complete the order by the end of the month.
