This is regarding the news that Mindy Cohn (best known as Natalie from The Facts of Life) is godmother of two of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s kids, probably the twins. My first question is isn’t Angelina an athiest? I’ve heard other people say that about her but I can’t recall her ever saying it in an interview. I know she was raised a Catholic and had a First Communion (her father Jon Voight is a practicing Catholic after many years) and I believe I’ve read Brad was raised Baptist but was not happy with his upbringing. So were the kids baptized? If so in what faith?
This also reminds me of the question of Drew Barrymore’s religion. If Steven Spielberg is her godfather doesn’t that make her a Jew? Also I know she was at one time such a good friend to Courtney Love who I think may be ethnically Jewish (althought Kurt Cobain was not) that she was in turn was godmother of Courtney and Kurt’s daughter Frances Bean. However I’ve never heard anyone say that either Drew or any of the Barrymore’s are Jewish. In other words, can you have a godparent of a different religion than you and can you even have a godparent when you are probably not being raised in any religion? Does my question make any sense to the rest of you?
