  • Fun Faith Fact!: During the 2010 season of Celebrity Big Brother, Baldwin attempted to convert many of his fellow housemates to Christianity.

Stephen Baldwin is the youngest of the Baldwin acting clan (which incudes eldest brother Alec Baldwin. He has always been radical in his professional life, but has recently also become a spiritual radical. Raised as a Roman Catholic until he was 12 years old, Baldwin stepped away from faith and into the frenzy of being a movie star. But in the midst of the glitz and glamour of movie stardom, faith would come calling through his Brazilian housekeeper who filled his home with Portuguese songs about Jesus and piqued his wife Kennya’s interest in Jesus as a result. Kennya would go on to steep herself in Bible study and become a member of a church where she would fervently pray for Stephen. He came fully into the Christian faith following the 9/11 attacks. Since then Stephen has become very vocal about his faith via his book "The Unusual Suspect," his extreme sports evangelism ministry, and a Christian talk-radio show. Image courtesy of Gage Skidmore.
