What Is The Religion Of Robert?

Duvall grew up in the Christian Science faith as a child. He is not someone who explicitly talks about his religious beliefs. He has also admitted not to attending church.

“My own faith is a very personal thing,” he said. “So, I just don’t talk about it.” —Robert Duvall

However, his interest in religious activities became stronger when he recounted how his mother used to pray for him often when he was a child. He also shared stories about how he felt when visited churches to gain insight into his screenplays for movies.

“One Sunday as I strolled down the main drag I noticed people flocking to a simple white clapboard building, the local Pentecostal church. All sorts of folks, young and old, were going inside, where I could hear the clink of tambourines, the rap of a snare drum and organ music rising. Might as well check this out, I thought. I slipped in and sat in back.”

Duvall prefers inculcating real sermons and Christian worshiping activities in his movies to make them feel genuine and unbiased.

He has a great interest in Pentecostal teachings. Duvall explained how he ended up filming the movie called “The Kingdom” in which he played the role of an evangelical preacher in 1981.

He also recounted the number of times Hollywood has rejected his movie scripts because they have religious themes.

“I took my script to Hollywood producers, and was met with the same response: “Bob, religion is not a subject our audiences want to watch.” I disagreed. Why wouldn’t audiences want to watch a movie about something that is foremost in so many people’s lives?

He struggled by doing his best to produce the movie. He was inspired by what he witnessed during his visits to several different churches. “I called the film The Apostle.”

In all Robert Duvall is a Christian who believes in God and also loves reading the Scriptures and listening to sermons from preachers.
