  • 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.
