Sister Act star Whoopi Goldberg was a nun in a former life, according to famous psychic twins Linda and Terry Jamison.
The Oscar winner won acclaim as a lounge singer who takes refuge in a convent to escape a mob boss in the hit 1992 comedy, and the Jamison sisters are convinced the actress' portrayal of a nun was destined.
Appearing on U.S. TV show The View on Friday (08Jul11), the Jamisons told co-host Goldberg, "You actually were a nun in 17th century Germany. You were a cloistered nun, so there's a resonance with the Sister Act (film)."
And Goldberg admits the psychic insight isn't a complete surprise to her because she almost chose the convent life over the glitz of Hollywood.
She confesses, "At one point I had thought about becoming a nun, absolutely."
