50+ Practicing Mormon Celebrities

Who is the most famous person who is a practicing Mormon? Katherine Heigl tops this list. From the time she was seven years old, Katherine Heigl was raised in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She isn’t as active in the church as she used to be, but she still falls back on Mormon values in her personal life. “I … didn’t want to live together before we were married. I still have enough Mormon in me–not a lot, but enough–that I wanted to keep that a little bit sacred,” she said of living with her husband Josh Kelley in a 2008 interview with Vanity Fair.

Donny Osmond and his sister Marie were raised in a Mormon household and they both still practice the religion today. Of not serving a mission for the LDS church, Donny said, “It would have been nice to be able to have served a regular full-time mission, but when I was of that age, my career was such that everyone, including my parents and the leaders of the church, thought that I could do a lot of good in the world by continuing being in the public eye, by living an exemplary life and sharing my beliefs in every way that I could.”
