Amy Adams still has Mormon values

Amy Adams can't let go of her Mormon values.

The 38-year-old actress was raised believing in the ideals of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints - a form of Christianity - which bans cigarettes, coffee, tea, drugs and has a strict law of chastity, requiring abstention from sexual relations outside of marriage.

Although she is no longer a practicing Mormon, Amy still follows the same moral code which she was taught as a child.

In an interview with The Sun newspaper, she said: "I grew up as a Mormon and that had more of an impact on my values than my beliefs. I'm afraid I will always feel the weight of a lie.

"I'm very hard on myself anyway. Religious guilt carries over, too. You can't really misbehave without feeling badly about it -- at least I can't.

"Even when I go out with friends and we go overboard at bars or clubs, I wake up the next morning feeling a bit conflicted about having had too much fun."

Although Amy no longer follows Mormon rules she still believes the religion is a force for good, and insists the teachings allow her to bring "a lot of joy" to the people around her and have made her a "positive and hopeful" person.

She said: "Religion can be a positive thing in people's lives. It provides a support system if you embrace it, despite all the controlling and guilting aspects of religion that I grew to resent."

Amy isn't the only famous Mormon, The Killers singer Brandon Flowers is still practicing in the church.
