Lindsay Lohan

American actress Lindsay Lohan told The Sun that she is considering converting to Islam but is yet to finish reading the Quran.

The celebrity caused a stir when she was seen carrying a copy of the Quran on the first day of community service in New York last year.

Lohan described her newfound love of Islam to the British tabloid, revealing she has been studying the religion to satisfy her intellectual curiosity and spiritual nature.

The 29-year-old star told The Sun newspaper: “I’m a very spiritual person and I’m really open to learning.

“America has portrayed holding a Koran in such a different way to what it actually is.”

Born a Catholic, Lindsay revealed that her younger sister Ali was also exploring her spiritual side and had converted to Buddhism.

If Lohan convert to Islam, she would be among a host of American celebrities including Mike Tyson and Janet Jackson who have accepted the fastest growing religion in the world.
