Jack Nicholson's Religious Life

Jack Nicholson has kept his religious life private. He has not made many comments or suggestions that he pertains to any particular religion.

It is known that he was raised Catholic but stopped attending when he was a teenager. So it is assumed he is Catholic by tradition and family rather than by devotion.

In a 2007 interview, with the Guardian, Nicholson stated, I don't believe in God now. I can still work up an envy for someone who has faith. I can see how that could be a deeply soothing experience. Jack seems to respect those with faith and admires the dedication required to follow a religion. He also mentioned that I've always believed that if you want to really understand spirituality, you have to [mess] around with it.
