Hollywood is home to some of the biggest names in the world, but for some of these stars, no name is greater than Jesus Christ. It's common for celebrities to give a quick mention of God during thank you speeches at awardings and interviews, but it's another to live a life that shows their faith.
Here are a few celebrities who you probably didn't know are Christian.
1. Kevin James
The famous movie star from "Grown Ups" and "Paul Blart: Mall Cop" is not very public about it, but he is a strong and devout Catholic and puts his faith on Christ. "My faith helps me in everything, it shapes me and I always try to glorify Him in movies," said James in an interview with The Christian Post.
2. Chuck Norris
