Yes, it is. But what does that tattoo on the inside of his left arm say? "SILENCE EARLE" something?

:D

I liked Dubliners, but Portrait was too much Catholic guilt for me.

I wonder what Johnny's religious denomination is/was? I know his uncle was a minister, and they had to attend when he was growing up.

Not sure what his religion is, but he is into meditation and hinduism. He is also free spirited as well.

Back when he attended his uncle's ministry is when he started his mimicing talent. Have you all ever heard him impersonate Marlon Brando? It is quite eerie how much he sounds like Mr. Brando!!!

Yeah, his Brando/rabbi in Once Upon A Time in Mexico is priceless.

I thought he might be interested in Hinduism. Maybe he got into it when he was researching Shantaram. I notice he gives that palms-together gesture which is a Hindu peace greeting. He also wears a Ganesh pendant around his neck.

He has likened his uncle's sermons to acting performances. That doesn't sound complimentary to his uncle.

He has said of Lily-Rose that "she can mimic anybody."

So that's what "Namaste" means. I seem to be five minutes behind everything today...

Namaste is one of the few Sanskrit words commonly recognized by Non-Hindi speakers. In the West, it is often used to indicate South Asian culture in general[citation needed]. Namaste is particularly associated with aspects of South Asian culture such as vegetarianism, yoga, ayurvedic healing, and Hinduism.

In recent times, and more globally, the term "namaste" has come to be especially associated with yoga and spiritual meditation all over the world. In this context, it has been viewed in terms of a multitude of very complicated and poetic meanings which tie in with the spiritual origins of the word. Some examples:

"I honor the Spirit in you which is also in me." -- attributed to author Deepak Chopra[3]
"I honor the place in you in which the entire Universe dwells, I honor the place in you which is of Love, of Integrity, of Wisdom and of Peace. When you are in that place in you, and I am in that place in me, we are One."[4][5]
"I salute the God within you."
"Your spirit and my spirit are ONE." -- attributed to Lilias Folan's shared teachings from her journeys to India.[citation needed]
"That which is of the Divine in me greets that which is of the Divine in you."[6]
"The Divinity within me perceives and adores the Divinity within you."[7]
"All that is best and highest in me greets/salutes all that is best and highest in you."
"I greet the God within."
That said, these are all arguably simply attempts at translating the same concept, which does not have a direct parallel in English. In Buddhism, the concept may be understood as Buddha nature. Also used as Namo Buddhaye.
