13 Celebs Who Don’t Believe in God
1. Bruce Lee
Lee is opposed to the dogmas of organized religion because he feels it goes against you being able to cultivate your own ways and beliefs.
2. Woody Allen
Woody Allen has made his opinion of God very clear in his autobiographical movie, Stardust Memories, saying: “To you, I’m an atheist. To God, I’m the loyal opposition.” And another quote: “Not only is God dead, but just try to find a plumber on weekends.”
3. Alan Cumming
Quote straight from Alan: ” I’m completely atheist. I don’t hold any beliefs about God and stuff. And I can’t do the church thing.”
4. Hugh Laurie
Hugh confirmed his atheism and said: “I don’t believe in God. But I have this idea that if there were a God, or destiny of some kind looking down on us, that if he saw you taking anything for granted, he’d take it away.”
5. Jack Nicholson
Nicholson said: “I don’t believe in God now,” but “I can still work up an envy for someone who has a faith. I can see how that could be a deeply soothing experience.”
6. Keira Knightley
In 2012, Keira was quoted saying: “If only I wasn’t an atheist, I could get away with anything. You’d just ask for forgiveness and then you’d be forgiven. It sounds much better than having to live with guilt.”
7. James Cameron
Cameron, who was raised in a Protestant household, famously stated: “I’ve sworn off agnosticism, which I now call cowardly atheism.” He even produced a documentary film entitled The Lost Tomb of Jesus in an attempt to prove that Jesus was actually just an ordinary human.
8. Angelina Jolie
Jolie: “There doesn’t need to be a God for me. There’s something in people that’s spiritual, that’s godlike. I don’t feel like doing things just because people say things, but I also don’t really know if its better to just not believe anything, either.”
9. Brad Pitt
Brad’s views are close in line with his wife’s, and Brad revealed that he considers himself 20% atheist, and 80% agnostic which actually sounds like 100% agnostic.
10. Kathy Griffin
During her acceptance speech at the Emmy’s, the comedian let everyone know: “A lot of people come up here and they thank Jesus for this award. I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than Jesus. He didn’t help me a bit. … So all I can say is suck it, Jesus. This award is my god now.”
11. Daniel Radcliffe
Radcliffe made a bold statement about his beliefs to Esquire saying: “I’m an atheist, but I’m very relaxed about it. I don’t preach my atheism, but I have a huge amount of respect for people like Richard Dawkins who do.”
12. Morgan Freeman
Morgan Freeman has definitely done his research considering he’s played the character of God several times on screen. When asked if he thought God was an invention, he responded with: “Yes. Has anybody ever seen hard evidence? What we get is theories from our earlier prophets. Now, people who think that God invented us think that the Earth cant be more than 6,000 years old. So I guess its a question of belief.”
13. Lance Armstrong
Lance believes that if there was a body or presence standing there to judge him, he hopes that he would be judged on whether he lived a true life, not whether he believed in a certain book, or whether he’d been baptized.
