In March 2013, Christian actress Kristin Chenoweth was really into color blocking. The actress mixed up the hues at the ‘Bible Experience Opening Night Gala’ held in New York.

“I’m a Christian person and I never thought that was different or interesting at all until I moved to New York and started understanding that there are a lot of people with a lot of faiths,” Chenoweth said in an interview with Fox & Friends.

“It’s been an interesting journey being in show business and being a Christian,” she admitted. “I’m an LGBTQ activist and sometimes that doesn’t always go together, you know? But, I just keep trying to say, ‘What would Jesus do?’ and that’s the way I live my life.”

For the event, Kristin kept it casual by wearing jeans with a yellow top but went the extra mile with her add-ons by pairing the outfit with a paneled black-and-white topper and some never-seen-before tricolored booties.

“When I first started in show business I never thought it was different,” Chenoweth said of her own Christianity in an interview with Bustle while promoting American Gods, an American fantasy drama television series.

“Because I grew up in the Bible Belt. Then when I moved to New York I discovered that ‘oh, there’s all kinds of people in the world that believe all kinds of things.’ Now I wasn’t that naïve, but I saw it in front of my face.” American Gods mirror that experience by telling a myriad of spiritual tales starring deities from cultures born all over the globe.

“There are Christian people out there that actually do understand there are people who believe differently from them and look at the world from a different way,” Chenoweth added in the June 2017 interview.

“Not everybody believes the same,” she emphasized. “The Christianity that I come from is a world of acceptance and love. Not just tolerance, but acceptance.”
