Who’s that nun at the Academy Awards?

Who’s that nun at the Academy Awards? February 25, 2012

Anyone asking that question clearly doesn’t know about Dolores Hart — Hollywood starlet who left the movies to become a cloistered Benedictine nun in the early 1960s.  Now her story has been made into an acclaimed documentary called “God Is Bigger Than Elvis,” which is up for an Oscar.  And Dolores Hart — now known as Mother Dolores — will be at the Academy Awards tomorrow night, walking the red carpet in her habit.

A decade ago, “20/20″‘s Bob Brown did a superb piece on Mother Dolores, and I suspect it was  responsible for bringing her story to a wider audience.  Take a look below.
