Public Figures that converted to Catholicism


I made this thread to cover public figures that have converted to Catholicism, whether it seems like a legitimate conversion or just for show.

One that peeked my interest was Rob Schneider.

Now obviously he could be another form of controlled opposition, but his conversion seems to be a slow and gradual one. His mother was also Catholic.
J.R.R. Tolkien was converted as a child by his mother Mabel, on 'The Lord of the Rings' he said it "is of course a fundamentally religious and Catholic work; unconsciously so at first, but consciously in the revision. That is why I have not put in, or have cut out, practically all references to anything like ‘religion,’ to cults or practices, in the imaginary world. For the religious element is absorbed into the story and the symbolism.”
This is a very old one but Evelyn Waugh was a famous example of this.

In his books 'Brideshead Revisited' there are catholic themes throughout. Recommend.
