Catholic Celebrities This Catholic Girl Wants To Recognize!

The Most Adorable Catholic Celebrity

Elijah Wood

This adorable hobbit is a practicing Catholic who admits to praying every night. So, let your kids watch Lord of the Rings.

Funniest Catholic Who Took Unnecessary Heat from the Church

Kevin Smith

Probably the coolest Catholic right now is director, author, and actor Kevin Smith. He caught some slack for Dogma. But Dogma is a great funny movie about finding one's Catholic faith again. Sure, it had some crude humor. But if it didn't, no one would have wanted to see it. Then, the message wouldn't get across to a mass group.

Funniest Wise Cracking Catholic Celebrity

Steven Colbert

Steven Colbert, host of The Colbert Report, is a practicing conservative Catholic who teaches Sunday school on the weekends. He is funny, witty, gets himself into a bit of trouble from saying a not so nice word on The Today Show. But hey, no one is perfect, right?

Not sure about Kelsey Grammar, and most of those are only catholic when they we kids, now would be lapsed catholic.

But a funny list. Thanks

Interesting...but anyone can call themselves a Catholic; many of these mentioned are in name only. It's not an easy path to follow but no one said it would be. The church is not perfect. Also, I think what should have been mentioned specifically about Patricia Heaton is that she stands against the taking of innocent life, a baby in the womb, and is against using FETAL stem cells from those babies that are murdered in the womb. Adult stem cells are fine. Anyone who truly walks with Christ, is against such atrocities.

I love Elijah wood, he is so down to earth- not to mention a GREAT actor. I just read an interview with him (the link is below, and he was talking about the 7 sins.

Although he says he is a Catholic, I don't believe that he lives like one, which makes me really sad. :(

I've been praying that Elijah would come to live the way God wants him to, and walk the walk and not just talk the talk.

God Bless you Elijah!!!!!

Elijah Wood Interview:

Lijah Lover!!! 4 years ago

Elijah Wood by far is the most talented Catholic on this list-- and the most cute!!!! (ps I am not a Catholic, I am nondenominational). :)

I completely agree with you, Hailey- I read the same interview, and I only wish that Elijah would live like a REAL Christian (whether it's a Catholic or not).

I'm so glad he prays every night, I think he's just a big sweet heart!!!!

I wish I could be in a movie with him, that's my dream!!

I love you Elijah, God Bless!!!! :)


your #1 fan!!!


p.s. I also love Dominic Monaghan, Billy Boyd, Viggo Mortensen, and Orlando Bloom in Lord of the Rings! XD

God Bless all of you! I hope you all become Christians!
