5 Celebrities You Didn't Know Were Religious!
We often forget that celebrities are just like us. They have families, kids, money problems, bills to pay, weight to lose and- they believe in something. When it comes to religious belief, just like everyone else, celebs are very different. Some of them are more religious, some of them are atheists. The point is, there are many celebrities out there who are very religious and you didnt even know. So prepare for 5 Famous People You Didn't Know Were So Religious! Lets...Begin!
1. Mark Wahlberg
Bet you didn’t know Mark Wahlberg was so religious either. Mark was raised in a Roman Catholic family, but because he was not always so observant, people usually don’t think that he is religious at all. Actually, Mark is thankful to the Catholic Church for saving him from a life of crime. Today, Mark attends church daily, and when he cannot attend, he regularly prays in his room where he has a crucifixion art piece that is a replica of the one at the Vatican.
2. Julia Roberts
Julia Roberts is one of the most popular actresses Hollywood has ever seen. Even though she hasn’t starred in a box office hit movie for years now, Julia has that kind of integrity behind her name, as she can allow herself to take a break from the spotlight. Although she was raised in a Catholic and Baptist home, Julia has always been drawn to the spirituality of Hinduism. Julia considers herself a practicing Hindu, and she and her family go to a Hindu temple where they pray.
3. Mel Gibson
Okay, so after directing “The Passion of the Christ,” we kind of knew that Mel Gibson was religious. However, we didn’t know that he was THAT religious! Mel was raised in a very strict Catholic home. The famous Hollywood actor even built a chapel in Malibu and called it The Church of the Holy Family. In this church, mass is performed every morning in Latin and women must cover their heads... I bet you didnt know that about Gibson!
4. Natalie Portman
Natalie Portman was born in Israel, but then she and her family moved to the US. Natalie attended a Jewish day school and later on, she graduated from Harvard. The beautiful actress took graduate courses at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and her husband is in the process of converting to Judaism, so it is believe that she is pretty serious about her faith. Natalie has openly spoken about raising her kids in the Jewish faith too. She is also very outspoken in her support for Jews around the world.
In case you didn’t know, Orlando Bloom was born and raised in the Anglican Church, but now he is a practicing Buddhist. Famous Hollywood actor and Mirranda Kerr’s ex husband joined Soka Gakkai School of Buddhism at the age of 19. He states that at such a young age, he has learned a lot about life. And I think we all presume that Orlando probably consulted someone at his church when he punched Justin Bieber in the face over Miranda Kerr...
