When is a religion not a religion? Perhaps when it’s just “a really cool community center.”

In a new podcast interview, ’90s heartthrob and 10 Things I Hate About You star Andrew Keegan addressed rumors that he started a “cult” in the 2010s, and said that’s not how he sees Full Circle, the spiritual organization he helped found a decade ago.

“I moved to Venice in my early twenties and just got really immersed in the culture and the community,” Keegan said on the latest episode of the Boy Meets World rewatch podcast Pod Meets World, adding that “there was this interesting kind of group of hippie types, if you will,” in the bohemian Los Angeles neighborhood. “There was the old Hare Krishna temple… and it was sitting there empty and we were like, ‘Yo, why don’t we just get some people together and let’s open this place up.”

Keegan, whose screen credits also include 7th Heaven and Camp Nowhere, said that reflecting on the Full Circle experience now is a little jarring. “Looking back [it] was insane,” he said. “I was putting down thousands and tens of thousands of dollars, and when we opened it up we spent three years and really did build an amazing friend group.” Full Circle folded in 2017. “For all intents and purposes, it was just a really cool community center for people in Venice for three years,” Keegan said.
