3. Richard Gere

The Chicago actor is one of the most outspoken religious stars who has embraced Buddhism. He was raised a Methodist, but became interested in Eastern philosophy in college and a trip to Nepal in the 1970s. Gere is now a personal friend of the Dali Lama and has become an advocate for Tibetan independence. His particular form of prayer is in the form of mindful meditation more than the worship of a deity.
