This list contains information about practicing Mormon celebrities, loosely ranked by fame and popularity. Several famous actors, musicians, and politicians are Mormons. Some of these famous people were raised in Mormon households, while other famous Mormons joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints later in life. One famous brother/sister duo are both Mormons.

Who is the most famous person who is a practicing Mormon? Katherine Heigl tops this list as one of the more notable Mormon actors. From the time she was seven years old, Katherine Heigl was raised in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She isn't as active in the church as she used to be, but she still falls back on Mormon values in her personal life. "I ... didn't want to live together before we were married. I still have enough Mormon in me--not a lot, but enough--that I wanted to keep that a little bit sacred," she said of living with her husband Josh Kelley in a 2008 interview with Vanity Fair.

Donny Osmond and his sister Marie were raised in a Mormon household and they both still practice the religion today. Of not serving a mission for the LDS church, Donny said, "It would have been nice to be able to have served a regular full-time mission, but when I was of that age, my career was such that everyone, including my parents and the leaders of the church, thought that I could do a lot of good in the world by continuing being in the public eye, by living an exemplary life and sharing my beliefs in every way that I could."

Do you think that being Mormon helped these celebrities to succeed in their careers?
