While famous atheists are frequently outspoken about their lack of faith, celebrity agnostics are sometimes quieter about their belief system. Agnosticism is a nebulous term that means different things to different people, which can make it hard to discuss openly. Nevertheless, these celeb agnostics have attempted to explain their individual interpretations of the term. 

Celebrities who are agnostic have varying degrees of belief or lack thereof. Some singers and actors veer further to the atheist side of the spectrum, while others maintain they're spiritual without being religious. While some stars were raised with a particular religion, others grew up in atheist or non-religious households. At any rate, all these notable agnostics spent time pondering various theories of the universe and the soul, and concluded there are some things we simply cannot know.

In a 2010 Rolling Stone article, Leonardo DiCaprio stated:

I'm not an atheist, I'm agnostic. What I honestly think about is the planet, not my specific spiritual soul floating around. I know that sounds slightly eco-boy, but I think about the idea that there's going to be a mass extinction, and then something else is going to evolve.
