Does anybody know if there are any Hollywood actors or musicians that are Heathens? I'd be keen to hear if there are any.

I am not sure. There was a rumor that Lord of the Ring's star, Viggo Mortensen is a Heathen, or at least is interested in it. This picture had quite a few people wondering, notice his Thor's hammer.



In recent times, I have also heard that Blur singer, Damon Albarn may have dabbled in Heathenry. He lives most of the time in Iceland nowadays. He once said in an interview "...I like the sagas, I like the horns on hats. It's my spiritual home."

From what I've read of various interviews, Viggo Mortensen is NOT heathen. Yet. He has stated that he is very interested in the old beliefs of northern europe and in fact has a collection of hammer pendants that he owns, some of which are his own design. I think it may be one of those situations like when his co-star in the LotR trilogy, Sir Ian McKellen, stated that he liked what he'd read and heard of modern pagans and thought he may seek them out (not sure if he ever did).

At the very least, Mortensen is definitely interested in our beliefs if for no other reason than to feel a closeness with his ancestors. Can't get much more heathen than that, when you get down to it.

*laugh* And I just noticed that in the photo above, Viggo is wearing the same Hammer pendant that I used as the basis for my tattoo. Smiley

Given the debauched way most Hollywood stars live their lives ... I certainly hope not.

Most, not all. Many live private, healthy lives and don't parade around like immature children for the media.

Yeah. There's Dan Halloran. There was one more but I can't remember the name... think they ran and lost, though.
