There is hope for Hollywood!

I just found out that all the people listed below were married only ONCE!!!!!!

Jim Caviziel
Mel Gibson
Alfred Hitchcock
Colin Firth
Jennifer Ehle
James Cagne
Sir Alec Guiness
(hat tip to Mamselle Duroc for the last two)

And (these two really made my day)...

Jimmy Stewart
Gary Cooper! (I actually did jump up and cheer when I heard those two :)

And those were only of the handful of actors and actresses we looked up.

I believe I heard that Gary Cooper's wife was Catholic, and that he converted to Catholicism a few years prior to his death.

Add to your list:

James Cagney, who was also a Catholic,

and Sir Alec Guinness, who was another convert to Catholicism.

That's awesome, Thanks so much!

I can't believe I forgot!

The gorgeous Grace Kelly was married to Prince Rainier of Monaco until her death in 1982. The Prince never remarried.

Ria, I found this link this morning that I thought you'd be interested in. It's about Gary Cooper's conversion to Catholicism, with several quotes from his daughter:

Hope you're having a blessed Triduum!

Ria said...

Ditto what I said before x2 at least!

Happy Easter!!!!!!!!!!
