Internationally renowned actor Omar Sharif has not converted to Judaism, pan-Arab Al Arabiya news channel quoted the Sharif's spokesperson as saying Tuesday.

“I have been hearing these rumors for a while and I have no idea what their source is, but they are not true and he is not thinking of converting at all,” said Inas Bakr.
