By    |   Tuesday, 27 Oct 2015 04:26 PM

While some in Hollywood would prefer to keep their religious beliefs to themselves, a number of famous actors and actresses are proudly public about their Christian faith.

As Tyler Perry told Beliefnet, "I'm not afraid to have a character say, 'I am a Christian,' or 'I believe in God,' because I think they represent real people on this Earth."

Here are 10 of the most famous Christian actors.

1. Angus T. Jones

Before quitting "Two and a Half Men," one of the most popular shows on TV, Jones rediscovered his Christian faith, called the show "filth," and referred to himself as a "paid hypocrite."

2. Angela Bassett

The Oscar nominee once told the Los Angeles Times that her faith moved her to tears. "When you realize how small you are, but how much he loved you. That he, Jesus, would die, the son of God himself on Earth, then you … you just weep," Bassett said.

3. Kristin Chenoweth

The actress best known for her roles on Broadway and on TV doesn't back down from controversy.

"The Bible tells us that we're not supposed to judge, and people shouldn't judge before seeing the show," she told ABC News, referring to a TV show in which she starred that was originally titled "Good Christian Bitches." "I'm a Christian … and I would never do anything that I think crossed the line."

4. Mel Gibson

Although he hasn't been seen much since his infamous anti-Semitic rant in 2006, Gibson's "Passion of the Christ" is one of the most widely known movies about Jesus.

The former "Everybody Loves Raymond" co-star attended Catholic schools while growing up, and her older sister is a nun. According to The Blaze, Heaton is unafraid of her faith.

6. Denzel Washington

A two-time Oscar winner, Washington reportedly donated $2.5 million to his church in Los Angeles.

7. Martin Sheen

The iconic actor defines himself as a radical Catholic. "You know radical means 'root,'" Sheen told Premier Christianity. "So, I go right back to the root, the old, original Church."

8. Mark Wahlberg

He was sent to jail as a teenager in Boston — and that doesn't include his stint as the hellraiser/underwear model Marky Mark — but as he's grown older, he's embraced his faith. Wahlberg has said he attends church every day.

9. Stephen Baldwin

The co-star of "The Usual Suspects" and a more-recent reality TV star traces his Christian faith back to 9/11. "It's real, it's changed my life, it's transformed my heart, I'm not who I was," Baldwin told ABC News.

10. Tyler Perry

Although the creator of the Madea character has been outward about his Christian beliefs, he faced criticism in 2014 when he announced he and his girlfriend were having a baby out of wedlock, according to The Christian Post.
