Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt encourage their six kids to show interest in all religions - but refuse to steer them towards any particular faith.
Actor Brad Pitt is very opinionated when it comes to religion. "I got brought up being told things were God's way, and when things didn't work out it was called God's plan," Pitt said, according to Extra. "I've got my issues with it. Don't get me started. I found it very stifling." Pitt, who was raised a conservative Southern Baptist, told People magazine that for him, faith is a personal code of values.

Justin Beiber values prayer but not church, what do you value?
ED You’re working so hard. As you said, this consumes your life. So what do you look to for strength? I know you are religious, right?
JB I don’t think I’m religious. I am spiritual. I believe that Jesus died on the cross for my sins. I believe that he put me in this position, and that I have to always give him the glory he deserves for putting me here. But I don’t consider myself religious. A lot of people who are religious, I feel like they get lost. They go to church just to go to church. I am not trying to disrespect them at all, you know, whatever works for you; but for me, I focus more on praying and talking to Him. I don’t have to go to church. I haven’t been to church in a long time, but I know I have a relationship with Him. People can be like, “If you don’t go to church, what do you mean, how are you a Christian?” But I am. I talk to Him, and that’s all ... I just want to be able to be a good influence on people. I know I’m going to make mistakes, because I’m young and I still love to have fun. I’m not perfect. I think everyone makes mistakes, and that’s what life’s about, you know? VMAGAZINE.com
