The Religious Affiliation of
Dan Aykroyd
Actor, Comedian


While talking with fellow entertainers John Belushi, Louis Malle and John Guare, Aykroyd observed that he, Malle and Guare (as well as Adele Guare) had all been raised as Catholics. Some of Dan Aykroyd's family members had been Catholic priests, and he himself was in Catholic Seminary, intending to become a priest, until about the age of 17. Aykroyd said they were all "fallen Catholics." [Source: Bob Woodward, Wired: The Short Life and Fast Times of John Belushi, Simon and Schuster: New York (1984), page 226.]
