Amy Adams still has Mormon values

Jun 17 2013, 3:40am CDT | by

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.

Leonardo DiCaprio gave $100k to ALS & more superheros do the challenge

Aug 27 2014 8:20am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

I apologize for using a misleading photo of Anthony Mackie as a lead-in to this post. Leo has looked pretty rough lately. He’s enjoying too much of the good life. Leo has been sharing the wealth by donating $7 million to ocean conservation. Part of that money offsets his huge carbon footprint, but it’s better than nothing. Leo has also done the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. He filmed his video from Lake Athabasca where he’s “learning about the Canadian tar sands.” Us says that Leo gave $1 ...
