Dating English novelist Emma Forrest, Colin Farrell is reported to have converted to her religion, Judaism. The New York Post's Page Six reports that the actor was seen at a party in West Hollywood wearing a chain with a Star of David pendant around his neck.

Farrell and Emma were seen attending a West Hollywood party for Heeb magazine at MBar earlier this month. It was during the event that he was spotted sporting the necklace, prompting rumors that he and Emma are getting serious with their love relationship.

In related news, it was reported that during the same bash Emma was seen performing a stand-up routine including a semi-striptease to Jewish music. "Forrest, who could have danced to any old song, was inspired by the experience of returning to temple for the first time since she was 10," so said a source. "Forrest wasn't the only entertainer that evening, just the scene- stealer. The warm British accent, the hot little number and a coterie of fans as well as Colin Farrell, sporting a Star of David dangling from his neck. He looked pleased with her performance." No comment just yet from Farrell or his people about the report.

Farrell and Emma have been dating since June this year. They previously were reported to be getting married, but have since shot down the reports.

Farrell, in the meantime, has been committed to star in an upcoming drama thriller flick, titled "Triage", which is slated for a 2009 release.

Hi Ferb! I think this is a big sack of BS - it goes against what he has stated about religion. Besides that I don't think that a person who until this time seems to have only spent 4 days together (I could be wrong - but that's all that's been snapped by paps) with another person would suddenly change his religion.

Now the gossip is, Colin Farrell converting to a Jew? Well, as long as he doesn't get circumcised. That would be the last straw for me.

You can become a jew in 2 months? No studies, preparation, real faith required? I don't think so!
