While our interest in the private lives of celebrities is most often centered on who’s dating who or surprise pregnancies, knowing the deeply held beliefs of cultural influencers can be entertaining but can also help us understand the art they create.
Some of the most well-known stars are private about their religious beliefs, but others tend to be much more vocal about their belief in God.
Celebrity Faith Journeys
Some see their fame as an opportunity to speak out about their faith, while others send a clear message about their faith-related values in their work. Here are a few names you’ll recognize, along with what they’ve said about their Christian faith:

The Canadian singer says that faith, like his marriage, “didn’t depend on him performing in exchange for money.”
In an interview with GQ magazine, Bieber describes his understanding of God, saying, “He is grace…Every time we mess up, He’s picking us back up every single time. That’s how I view it. And so it’s like, ‘I made a mistake. I won’t dwell in it. I don’t sit in shame. But it actually makes me want to do better.”

Leigh told Lisa Ingrassia of People, “In the beginning [church] was a hard pill to swallow…I realized there was so much more to life,” she says.

3. Chris Pratt: Finding Strength in Faith During Adversity

“It restored my faith in God, not that it needed to be restored, but it really redefined it. The baby was so beautiful to us, and I look back at the photos of him and it must have been jarring for other people to come in and see him, but to us, he was so beautiful and perfect.”

She goes on to state, “I finally learned that God’s standard of goodness is different from the world’s standard, and for the first time I saw myself as a sinner. I really understood that I broke the law, that Jesus paid my fine, and that there was no love greater than that. He rescued me, He saved me, He delivered me, and knowing those truths led me to real repentance and change. Out of gratitude for what Jesus did for me, I started to live a life of service to Him, and my deepest desire is to hear Him say, “Well done, good and faithful servant.”
5. Stephen Colbert: Rediscovering Faith Amid Loss
In 2019, an interview between Anderson Cooper and talk show host Stephen Colbert about grief went viral. In it, Colbert spoke openly about how his faith strengthened him in the midst of losing his father and brothers.
However, according to a 2018 interview with Father James Martin, Colbert had defined himself as an atheist for some time. He described an encounter where he was handed a small New Testament while walking down the street in Chicago when he was 22 years old.
“I had lost my faith in God, to my great grief. I was sort of convinced that I had been wrong all this time that I had been taught something that wasn’t true. And I was walking down the street and somebody handed me a little, green New Testament Proverbs and Psalms,” he said about being handed the book in 1986.

In the interview with Father James Martin on his Catholic talk show “Faith in Focus,” Colbert recalled that the first passage he read was from Matthew Chapter 5.
The comedian said he immediately felt “lightened” after reading the passage. “For the first time I understood the real meaning of the phrase, it spoke to me. Like it read off the page. The words of Christ read off the page. There was no effort. I stood on that street corner in the cold and read that sermon. And my life has never been the same,” Colbert said.”
6. Selena Gomez: Balancing Spirituality With Fame
Known for her successful music career as well as the new hit Hulu series, “Only Murders in the Building,” Selena Gomez describes herself as “very, very spiritual” and even took the stage at a Hillsong conference.
In a 2021 interview for Vogue, Gomez states, “I believe in God, but I’m not religious. I’ve been a Christian for a while now. I don’t talk about it too much – I want to, but it’s gotten a bad rep. I just want to make it clear that I love being able to have my faith, and believe in what I believe in, and that truly is what gets me through.”

Gomez states that her struggles with lupus have made her feel closer to God. In 2019, she described on Twitter what she felt God had said to her: “He said to me ‘Selena hold on, I hurt when you hurt. I cry when you cry but I will NEVER, EVER leave your side. Work with me, walk with me and watch how I do it.’”
7. Denzel Washington: Guided by Faith Throughout His Career
Actor, director, and producer Denzel Washington finds his faith so important that he even considered becoming a preacher at one point.
Not related to Kerry Washington, he credits his Pentecostal upbringing with keeping him on the right path and helping him avoid the pitfalls he saw many of his friends encounter.
“I had that Pentecostal foundation and a mother who used to say, ‘Son, you never know who’s praying for you.’ So maybe it wasn’t my fate to fall into those traps,” he said in an interview.

Raised by a pastor, Washington continues to credit his faith and involvement at church with the success of his marriage and the closeness of his family. As recently as September 2021, Washington was a featured speaker for a Christian men’s conference.
Washington told the crowd of men, “Stay on your knees. Watch me, but listen to God…I hope that the words in my mouth and the meditation of my heart are pleasing in God’s sight, but I’m human. I’m just like you. What I have will not keep me on this Earth for one more day. Share what you know, inspire who you can, seek advice. If you want to talk to one someone, talk to the one that can do something about it. Constantly develop those habits.”
8. Carrie Underwood: Overcoming Challenges With Faith
Country star Carrie Underwood has never been shy about her faith, having topped the charts with 2005’s hit, “Jesus Take the Wheel.”
In 2021, she released a gospel album, “My Savior,” a collection of classic hymns. In a 2018 interview on CBS Sunday Morning, Underwood describes her faith in the midst of struggling with multiple miscarriages.

After three miscarriages in a row, Underwood said that she became angry and asked God to intervene.
She said, “…for the first time, I feel like I actually told God how I felt. That was like a Saturday — and the Monday I went to the doctor to, like, confirm another miscarriage. And they told me everything was great!”
9. Chance the Rapper: Christian Faith in Music and Life
Chance the Rapper rediscovered his faith after his daughter was diagnosed with atrial flutter in utero. In an interview with GQ, Chance said that the diagnosis drove him to pray more.
“…It made me pray a whole lot, you know, and need a lot of angels and just see s*** in a very, like, direct way. And…you know, God bless everything, it worked out well.” Chance now defines himself as a Christian rapper.

11. Chrissy Metz: Spirituality as a Source of Strength

Metz credits her strong Christian faith and focus on spirituality for finding the strength to stick to her goal and prioritize her mental health.
She has also used her devotion to God and her prayer life to teach young kids about “having a relationship with God and being able to pray to and with Him,” as she said in an interview with Publishers Weekly.
This resulted in her first children’s book, When I Talk to God, I Talk About You, which you can buy on Amazon.
It was made in collaboration with her partner, songwriter Bradley Collins, who also lent his talents and combined them with Metz’s musical background to create an accompanying album entitled Pray for This Day: Songs Inspired by When I Talk to God, I Talk About You.

When asked about her inspiration to write the book, Metz said they “wrote it for any reader who was curious about how to talk or pray to God or to their higher power.”
As for what she hopes for the book and its readers, Metz reflected on her past self and mentioned that “a lot of inner child work has been done through the book and album.” She continued that she “had a lot of issues growing up because she didn’t know how [she] could pray.”
For many people, especially kids, God could be “this big, intimidating person” and it’s difficult to figure out what to say. But the book “answers a lot of those questions” and lets kids know that “God wants to hear any question or concern you have.”

No other teacher gave me anywhere near the peace that Jesus Christ did.”

Embracing her friend’s advice, Davis “went and I got on my knees, and I did. I said I want a big black man from the South who’s probably been married before, has kids – because I don’t want any pressure in that department.”
Equally important to her was finding a partner who shared her love for God and attended church faithfully, adding, “Someone who has maybe been an actor who understands the artistic community. Someone who goes to church and loves God. I said, ‘If you give me that, I’ll start going to church, God. I really will. I’m committed to it.’ And then I signed off.”
