'10 Things I Hate About You' Star Made His Own Religion

Andrew Keegan, the hunky jock from one of our favorite '90s teen movies, decided to ditch acting and do something that's a little more ... enlightening.

As Joey Donner in the 1999 film "10 Things I Hate About You," Andrew Keegan attracted quite a few fans -- and now, he's attracting converts. In the heart of Venice, California, the heartthrob leased a church and started his own new age temple and spiritual movement called Full Circle.

The movement has gained quite the following, and some followers have even dedicate their lives to Keegan's Mission.

According to the website: "Full Circle Venice is a non-denominational non-profit community-based center [...], known for its diversity, open-mindedness, and creativity. We offer an experiential environment where people can creatively expand their social relations and connect with other members of their community."

How do they do this, you ask? According to Full Circle, "live performances, Art exhibits, film screenings, yoga and dance classes, workshops, forums and other special events" are all part of the experience.

Keegan spoke to Vice about his new venture and assures believers and doubters this is not a cult, but a community.
