The Religious Affiliation of Screenwriter
Joe Eszterhas was born in Hungary. In his published memoir (Joe Eszterhas, Hollywood Animal: A Memoir, Alfred A. Knopf: New York, 2004, he details the devout Catholic devotion of his grandmother and mother (see, for example, pages 52-53). Eszterhas himself led what was in many ways a scandalous Hollywood lifestyle for many years, but later reconnected with his Catholic faith. Much of the ending of his memoir Hollywood Animal is spent describing how he cleaned up his life and had renewed interest in God, Jesus, and Catholic religious devotion (e.g., pages 718-726, 733-735).
