20 Extremely Religious Celebrities

March 30th, 2014 5:00pm EDT
Candace Cameron Bure
Candace Cameron Bure of "Full House" fame and her brother Kirk Cameron ("Growing Pains") are very religious. As Kirk became an outspoken Christian evangelist and actor, Cameron also became more public with her faith in the late 1990s, writing for Christian websites, speaking at churches, and endorsing Christian organizations, businesses and charities.

And the actress says her belief in Christianity helped her battle bulimia.

She told Yahoo! in December 2013, "I turned to food for comfort and had to find a different source, 'cause clearly it wasn't a healthy way to deal with things. So tha...

Religious Celebrities - A Bit Too Much Or Just What They Needed?

December 15th, 2012 11:00am EST
Religion is a beautiful collection of beliefs that can impact one’s life, change the way you look at life and sometimes segregate you from others. When speaking about celebrities in general, they usually like to stand out and go against the grain and when you add religion into the mix, we sometimes ask- is it a bit much? Some celebrities take their beliefs overboard and others simply find religion and turn their lives around for the better. Here are a few stars whose religion has changed the direction of their career.

Recently, Two and a Half Men actor, Angus T. Jones made headlines when...

March 7th, 2012 11:30am EST
A Thousand Words
Eddie Murphy’s upcoming film "A Thousand Words" about a smooth talking man cursed with only 1,000 words left to speak got us thinking. What if Hollywood was inflicted with the same curse as Eddie's character? Which celebrities would we like to have a limited amount of words? Frankly, there a few we would like to just shut up!

Here are the top 5 candidates: (hit next to see)

1) First up, the notorious Kim Kardashian. I keep hoping one day, I’ll open my eyes and she will disappear back in the oblivion of sex tape scandals celebrities and vanish. Obviously, that just isn’t going to hap...

Kirk Cameron
Actor Kirk Cameron has been left stunned by the harsh criticism he has been subjected to since he suggested homosexuality was "unnatural" in a recent TV interview - because those attacking him have shown a complete lack of tolerance.

The former Growing Pains star, now an evangelical Christian minister, sparked controversy last week when he spoke out against gays and lesbians during an interview on CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight, during which he stated that he thought homosexuality was "detrimental and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization".

This weekend, Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds will add their names to the long and distinguished list of actors who have tackled the “body swap” movie.

Actor Kirk Cameron has paid tribute to his former Growing Pains co-star Andrew Koenig, who was found dead on Thursday. Koenig went missing earlier this month, prompting Cameron - who had grown close to the actor during their stint on the hit 1980s TV show - to issue an emotional plea, begging the 41 year old to get in touch.

Friends and family feared the depressed actor had taken his own life, and on Thursday their worst fears were confirmed when a group of Koenig's friends found his body in a park in Vancouver, Canada. Cameron has reached out to Koenig's grieving relatives as he mourns t...

Actor Kirk Cameron can appreciate what Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie go through daily as parents - he has 10 kids.

The former Growing Pains star has six natural kids and four adopted - and he understands the Pitt-Jolies when they confess they can't see a difference between the three kids born to them and their three adopted siblings.

Cameron says, "You forget who's adopted and who is not. The kids are 11, 10, nine, eight, seven and five-and-a-half. We feel like The Brady Bunch. There's never a dull moment. Everybody's got a friend at the house. For birthday parties you don't have...

Kirk Cameron
Christian actor Kirk Cameron forced movie bosses to cast his wife Chelsea as a smooching stand-in for his new film Fireproof, because he refused to kiss his onscreen wife.

In the movie, Cameron plays a firefighter battling to save his marriage to his wife, played by Erin Bethea. However the 37 year old had made a vow to Chelsea - his wife of 17 years and the mother of his six children - that he would never kiss another woman on or off-screen, so she was brought onto the set for a romantic scene.

Cameron, a partner in evangelical Christian ministry The Way of the Master, explains...

Celebrity Serial Daters

John Mayer
In Hollywood, the dating circle seems to be so small that most celebrities share boyfriends and girlfriends and swap spit left and right. The time between significant others seems to get shorter and shorter as well. Last week's tabloid cover may show a huge celebrity breakup and the week after it will feature the same exes and who they're already dating next. And although this isn't the case with all of Hollywood, there are a few we like to call Celebrity Serial Daters.

John Mayer uses his smooth rock star status to make the ladies fall for him, but seems to break their hearts just a...

Character Additions That Nearly Ruined A TV Show (Or Did)

June 10th, 2008 8:45am EDT
Buffy The Vampire Slayer
It's been said that a TV show is only as good as the characters that occupy it. During the first season of series, the writers introduce us to certain main characters that the show is going to revolve around. Once a season ends and a new one is about to start all bets are off because the writers don't want to see the ratings drop.

Their solution? Bring in new characters.

Whether they were added in advance or brought on spontaneously, new characters are added in hopes of appealing to an even bigger audience and to increase a particular show's ratings. This doesn't always turn out ...

Kirk Cameron Blasts Scientology

Kirk Cameron
Growing Pains star Kirk Cameron has hit out at Tom Cruise's Scientology religion - warning people not to get caught up in the faith as it has similar qualities to a "cult".

The former teen idol turned to Christianity after his time on the hit U.S. TV series, complaining about various "immoral" aspects of the 1980s show's plotline.

The 37-year-old even went on to set up his own U.S. ministry, The Way Of The Master, with his wife Chelsea Noble, the mother of his six God-fearing children.

And now Cameron, who has written his autobiography Still Growing about his life, has lashed...

The Future Seems Bright For '27 Dresses' Star James Marsden

James Marsden
Chances are you've come across James Marsden's dimples on the big screen and been charmed by the man behind them. There's a boyish quality to Marsden, but there's also strong leading man potential, which Marsden is finally beginning to enjoy.

After playing a string of good boys who can't quite hold onto the girl in films such as X-Men, Superman Returns and The Notebook, Marsden joked to Entertainment Weekly that his action figure line would be called, "'The Other Guy Series'-the guy-that-doesn't-get-the-girl action figures."

Marsden isn't destined to be "The Other Guy" much long...

80's TV Stars: Where Are They Now?

Danica McKellar
Nothing makes you feel older than when you realize that 1987 was 20 years ago. Those of us born and/or raised in the 1980s remember a time of outrageous fashion, outrageous music, and most of all, outrageous television.

But most of us have also made the transition from the 1980s to the present day with relative ease - we've put away our scrunchies, retired our parachute pants, cut out our shoulder pads, and we've moved onwards and upwards (into the stylized 00s).

But what about the television stars we love and hate? Did they ever manage to leave it all behind? Starpulse is sick ...
