45 Celebrities who are Atheist

celebrities who are atheist
If you are watching and listening closely to awards shows, you may have observed that many of the winners do not mention God at all.  This drew conclusion from some that Hollywood is indeed a God-less community.  While this is merely speculation, here are some famous celebrities who are atheist or possibly are.

Keanu Reeves

One of the most liked Hollywood actors; his admission in 2005 that he is an atheist did not hamper his career.

He starred in numerous movies and TV shows since he admitted about doubting the concept of Heaven and Hell.

John Lennon

No need to make a dissertation on him being an atheist. By just reading the lyrics of his 1970 song entitled “God,” it is already a given.

The song “Imagine,” which he recorded on solo is also notable for this topic.

And, it takes more than lots of chutzpah to declare that he and his band The Beatles were more popular than Jesus Christ.

This is probably the clearest video although the subtitle is in Spanish.

James Cameron

The director of two box-office hits of all time; Titanic and Avatar, has been an atheist for he all knew.

Brad Pitt

Angelina’s possibly soon to be ex, was probably having syntax problems when he declared that he is 80 per cent agnostic and 20 percent atheist as both concepts refer to having no actual belief in God.

Johnny Depp

He once said that his faith is based on his children because he is convinced that religion is not his forte and beyond his comprehension.

Perhaps, his lack of spiritual comprehension made an evil character likable such as Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean movie series.

Morgan Freeman

Despite playing the role of God once in a Jim Carrey movie, Freeman still declared that his belief system does not include believing that there is a Great Creator.

The brother of demised River Phoenix who is both an actor and a singer finds the idea of God as preposterous; lacks common sense.
