Formerly Mormon - Ryan Gosling, Eliza Dushku
Although Gosling was raised Mormon, he no longer practices the faith. However, he won’t deny the impact the religion had on his life growing up. In a Beliefnet interview this year, he said “[Being Mormon] socialized me at a young age. You have to pray in public, shake a lot of hands, talk in public, sing in church, stuff like that. It has definitely stayed with me.”
Dushku was the star of shows like “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Tru Calling” grew up LDS. While she’s not active in the church anymore, she’s very close to her mom, Dr. Judith Dushku, a well known and respected Mormon feminist professor and scholar.
