Eminem-Converted to Orthodoxy before going into rehab, in many of his videos he is seen crossing himself from right to left.

I'm curious to see that. Can you provide links to some videos?

Jennifer Aniston-Raised Greek Orthodox and had a Greek Orthodox wedding in her show 'Friends'.

Eminem-Converted to Orthodoxy before going into rehab, in many of his videos he is seen crossing himself from right to left.

Jim Belushi-Raised in the Albanian Orthodox Church, recently just met the Patriarch I think.

John Belushi-Raised in the Albanian Orthodox Church as well.

Tom Hanks-Not sure of the details

Bob Marley-Converted to Ethiopian Orthodoxy right before his death. He actually attempted to be Baptised three times before in the past but it was always postponed because of death threats to his Bishop. He waited until his death bed in New York before converting.

I just watched videos of Bear Grylls jumping out of airplanes, he does cross himself from right to left... But with his full hand like many Catholics, not with three fingers.

Interesting. Perhaps he is an Eastern Rite Catholic?

Can you provide any more information on Eminem converting to Orthodoxy?  I've used Google but turned up nothing.

As an aside, if he has, then he and Orthonorm are even more alike than I thought...

Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson are active members of St. Sophia Greek Orthodox Cathedral in Los Angeles, CA.  A few years back, the "Orthodox Observer" reported that Rita was a Sunday School teacher.  (The church is quite large and was constructed under the leadership of Charles Scouras in the late 1940's, while he was president of Fox, if I recall correctly.  Much of the construction was conducted by firms that worked for Fox and were encouraged (or coerced) into donating or significantly discounting their work;---he must be a grandson, but I see the name Charles Scouras as a producer of Desperate Housewives.)   (These threads get long and many don't read the older pages--most of the names in the prior seven comments have already been covered above.)

I'm not sure to which parish they belong, but Troy Polamalu and his wife's marriage was celebrated by GOAA Metropolitan Maximos, formerly of Pittsburgh.  I saw on facebook, soon after his enthronement in December, Metropolitan Savas of Pittsburgh was Polamalu's guest at a loge for a Pittsburgh Steelers game.

Where did you read this?  And, yes, Tina Fey at least was Orthodox, I don't know if she still considers herself an adherent of the Church.  Same with Zack Galifinakis and Chris Angel.

I've found a variety of things, listing him as Orthodox, Baptist, Mormon (which would be hilarious if true), Christian of unspecified affiliation, and theist of unspecified affiliation. It'd be cool if he has become Orthodox, but I can't find anything reliable saying so.

I have heard that Kim Thayil, Soundgarden's guitarist, is also Christian, but I don't know if it is true or not. His parents were from Kerala, and there are a lot of Christians there (they're the third largest population, 19% or about 6.3 million people), but many of them aren't Orthohodox (Malabar Catholics, or "Chaldean" Assyrians/Nestorians).

John Belushi-Raised in the Albanian Orthodox Church as well.

Tom Hanks-Not sure of the details

Bob Marley-Converted to Ethiopian Orthodoxy right before his death. He actually attempted to be Baptised three times before in the past but it was always postponed because of death threats to his Bishop. He waited until his death bed in New York before converting.

I just watched videos of Bear Grylls jumping out of airplanes, he does cross himself from right to left... But with his full hand like many Catholics, not with three fingers.

Interesting. Perhaps he is an Eastern Rite Catholic?

Can you provide any more information on Eminem converting to Orthodoxy?  I've used Google but turned up nothing.

As an aside, if he has, then he and Orthonorm are even more alike than I thought...

If he keeps biting my . . . .

Eminem crosses himself at 2:09

Go to google and search 'what religion is Eminem?' and all of the websites that come up will list him as an Orthodox Christian.

He's crossing himself with his left hand, and his fingers are not arranged in the Orthodox fashion.  Angry

He's a left hander who just took to crossing himself. Dollars to donuts. Pulling is just more "natural" than "pushing".

Adrain Zmed who played a cop on one of the TV series a few years back was the son of a Romanian Orthodox priest.

Orthodoc

i'm a bit late with this, as i am not sure orthodoc is still around, but does anyone have any more info an this?
by the way 'a few years back' was like more than 20 years ago coz i remember watching it in my youth and trying to work out where he was from.
of course, being romanian, it would explain why he was so good looking...

Comedian Demetri Martin is the son of a Greek Orthodox Priest, but is no longer practicing. He talks about religion some in this interview.

Zach Galifianakis was baptized Greek Orthodox but mostly attended a Presbetyrian Church as a child and has said "I grew up Greek Orthodox and I wish I knew more about the bible. But, I haven't really made my mind up about it. I think it's all mythology. It would be nice to believe in something, just in case. I mean, what do you have to lose? We can be all scientific about it, but just in case. I don't know. I'm still thinking about it. "

Probably no one cares since I'm willing to bet I'm the only one that watches this show, but I'm pretty sure Nina Dobrev of Vampire Diaries (team Damon in case you were wondering... what? No one? Ah, well...) is Bulgarian Orthodox. She was talking about her "name day" recently-ish, and she was born in Bulgaria.

Yep, she is orthodox.

In the words of Zoolander, she is also really, really, ridiculously good-looking.
