Is Jason Bateman A Jew?
No, he is not, though there are rumours flying around that he is. There’s no clear proof of Jason Bateman belonging to a particular religious group or publicly practicing a faith. His sister, Justine Bateman, is a born again Christian and has discussed finding religion in adulthood, a possible sign that their family was not a practicing member of organized religion but any claims about Jason appear to be complete speculation.
Mini Bio On Jason Bateman
We know that Jason Bateman was born in New York and is the son of Kent Bateman, an American film producer, and Victoria Elizabeth, an English flight attendant.
He also has a sister, Justine Bateman, who starred alongside Michael J Fox in the 1980s show “Family Ties. While both Jason and Justine were TV stars from an early age, not a great deal of information about their home life has been made public, including their religious background.
There are several websites online claiming that Bateman is Christian but they don’t provide any sources for this assertion.
These same sites claim that his wife, Amanda Anka is Christian, likely based on speculation that her father, Paul Anka, is an Orthodox Christian.
However, Paul’s ex-wife Anna Anka states that Paul is non-religious so we can probably just ignore any unfounded claims at about Jason Bateman, his wife, or his father-in-law.
An interview with a religious film critic after the release of his directorial debut “Bad Words” also makes no mention of whether or not Bateman himself is religious.
