Everyone has their own beliefs, and celebrities are no different. While it may be rare, plenty of celebrities actually consider themselves pagan. In other words, these celebrities aren't a part of the world's most common religions—and there are plenty of them. In fact, you'd be surprised to hear the many famous people who are pagan.

From pagan singers to pagan actors, celeb pagans are really no different than any other—they simply believe in different things. Nevertheless, it's always interesting to see just which stars have such different beliefs. Spoiler alert: Roseanne Barr is even reportedly pagan! Moreover, you'll see some of these famous people were actually raised pagan, while others simply made the switch later in their lives.
