Robert Pattison, Buddhist?

There are (at least!) two reasons not to bother reading this new Marie Claire item about how Twilight star Robert Pattison is supposedly enraptured with Buddhism alluvasudden.

1. Buddhism’s precepts discourage us from engaging in gossip, as part of our efforts to maintain and model Right Speech.

2. There’s pretty much no real content there. Like, at all. I mean, maybe he is or one day will be a Buddhist, but you can’t really glean that from one alleged drunken conversation.

Thanks to a certain someone, who shall go unnamed, for the tip.
