Did you know that Tom Cruise is a Scientologist? Probably. But maybe you didn't know that Nicole Kidman is a devoted Catholic, that John Woo is a Lutheran, or that George Lucas identifies himself as a "Buddhist Methodist." Learn the religious affiliations of dozens of celebrities from movies, music, literature and politics in our celebrity religion index.
The chart below show the religious affiliations or belief systems of celebrities (both living and dead; in film, television, music, literature, academics and politics), listed in alphabetical order by last name. Where available, click on a celebrity's name for a full religious profile; click on a religion name for more information on that faith. This list will be expanded over time.
Obligatory disclaimer: this index simply indicates the most prominent religious associations of various celebrities, which encompass a wide range of religious commitment, belief and practice. Whether a particular celebrity is "really" a Jew, Catholic, or Scientologist is a matter of further research and opinion.
