His father, who sadly passed away in 2001 during 9/11, was Jewish. Interestingly, he only found out about his heritage in 2017 because his mum “never told him”.

During an interview with HOT 97, the actor said to be 48% Jewish. Scott also had Polish Jewish, Dutch Jewish, and German Jewish roots, including Italian roots.

Pete‘s mother has Irish, English, Scottish, and German ancestry. The star was raised in a Catholic environment.

“I’m a straight white dude but for some reason, I look like every other race mixed together… I use it to my advantage,” he said. “I feel like as soon as people find out I’m just a white dude, I’ll start losing work.”

So yes, Pete Davidson is Jewish.

What religion does Pete Davidson follow?

In the past, Pete has shared his religion with the public but has never answered how religious he actually is. However, it doesn’t seem the Bodies actor is a strict Jew.

Having grown up in New York, he has followed the Catholic religion from a young age. In the past, Pete spoke about his faith and even shared pictures of attending the church during Holy Saturday.

According to Bible Hint, the former SNL star opened up about his relationship with Catholicism, mentioning his admiration for the Pope.
