Los Angeles, USA -- Hollywood actress and former model, Naomi Watts, seems destined to go the path of many flighty stars, and is converting to Buddhism (vs. Kabbalah or Scientology).

Apparently, Watts became obsessed with the religion while filming her new movie 'The Painted Veil', according to reports.

It seems she feels "drawn" to the belief system, and has supposedly begun meditating and wearing Buddhist style beads on her wrist.

The King Kong star says, "I have some belief, but I am not a strict Buddhist or anything yet."

"There was a lot of excitement and energy there."

She joins fellow believers Richard Gere, Penelope Cruz, Goldie Hawn, Jennifer Lopez, and countless other celebrity worshippers of the philosopher.
