We bet that it’s difficult to maintain a strong sense of faith while living in Hollywood due to the constant temptations and sinning taking place in the “City of Angels.” However, we’ve found 10 celebrities who are Mormon. Some stars still practice regularly, while others are more lapsed but continue to uphold to certain moral standards instilled in them through The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Imagine Christina Aguilera arriving at your doorstep with a pamphlet on Mormonism. Would you convert?
1. Shawn King
Larry King’s seventh wife, Shawn Southwick, is a devout Mormon. Southwick attended Brigham Young University and is close friends with another proud and vocal member of the Church, Marie Osmond. Larry often attends Church with his wife and the couple has agreed that their two sons, Chance and Cannon, will be raised in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, although Larry himself is an agnostic Jew.
2. Paul Walker
The late Fast and Furious star was raised as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, but stopped practicing a few years before his death. Following his death on November 2013, Walker’s body was cremated and his ashes were buried in a non-denominational ceremony in the Hollywood Hills.
