It's easy for stars to get lost in the glitz and glamor of Hollywood, so "A Wrinkle in Time" star Storm Reid is thankful for her faith and church family for keeping her grounded.
Reid, 14, is a member of Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas, which is headed by Pastor Joel Osteen, according to The Christian Post. Associate Pastor John Gray is one of her friends, and he recently moderated a Q&A with the actress as she shared her faith journey and how God helps her navigate her dreams in Hollywood.
"My life is centered around God and faith. I wear a mustard seed every day," Reid shared. "I don't know if I'll be acting in five years and I don't even know if I'll be in L.A. in five years. But I know if I have faith in a mustard seed that God will move mountains, and I know the best is yet to come."
Meanwhile, Gray also supported Reid's latest venture - "A Wrinkle in Time" - which also stars Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, and Chris Pine, among many others. In the film directed by Ava DuVernay, Reid plays middle school math genius Meg Murry.
Just like the book from which it is based, the film has faced tons of criticisms. The Christian Science Monitor deemed it as a "phantasmagoria that is more cheesy than transporting," while Mercury News called it a "beloved mess."
However, Gray is still urging people to give the movie a shot. In fact, he believes it is a highly enjoyable film for people of all ages.
"We support whatever we want to support. But there are moments where we lovingly suggest the body of Christ get behind something that is bigger than ourselves. And when you, as a young woman of faith, can stand here and boldly say, 'I rock a mustard seed bracelet and God is the center of my life,' we want to celebrate you [and] your gift," said Gray.
"And I'm praying that we will support 'A Wrinkle in Time' [and] our families go out, it's a great family film," he added.
