Juliana Margulies has revealed that a book on Buddhism convinced her to leave ER in 2000.
The Good Wife actress discusses the decision to pass up $27 million to play Carol Hathaway for two more years with Oprah Winfrey on Saturday’s (May 1st) episode of Super Soul.
In a clip obtained by TVLine, she said, “I went to the Bodhi Tree Bookstore in Los Angeles — I had heard a friend got some spiritual books and I had been studying some Buddhism, so I went. And I ran my finger down a shelf and I picked out a book, Awakening the Buddha Within. I brought it home…. I opened the book, I closed my eyes and I pointed to a line in the book. And I opened my eyes and the line was, ‘I knew I wanted to learn more, not earn more.'”
