Chad Michael Murray does not back down from his religious beliefs.
Murray, 40, admitted he turned down projects he didn’t feel were compatible with his beliefs in a recent interview with Fox News Digital.
“I stick to the things I believe in,” Murray said. “Let’s just say a piece of material had to fall on my desk, which has happened many times over the past 22 years, which I don’t necessarily think is what I believe in or what I’m selling – so this is not for me.”
“I don’t want to interfere in something that I don’t believe in in any way because it will destroy it for everyone else involved,” he added. “If you don’t fully love and embrace the character you’re playing, it will show on screen. I always want to give the people I work with and the people who are going to watch the movie, the best of me .”

Most recently, Murray worked alongside Bruce Willis on Fortress: Sniper’s Eye. The actors previously filmed “Survive the Night” together.
Murray explained how grateful he was to have been able to work alongside Willis and get to know him as the actor recently announced his retirement.
“I think I would say the majority of us all have an admiration for [Bruce Willis]. He was my childhood. He’s a big part of my childhood – John McClane [‘Die Hard’] and “Hudson Hawk” and “The Last Boy Scout” and all those great movies that I grew up watching and loved so much – I found an identity and wanted to be those characters growing up. I wanted to represent them in my future.”
“So for me to have this chance to walk on set and not just collaborate, but really create a relationship and get to know each other a bit and talk and exchange old war stories and jokes, to blunder, to laugh and to have those moments on set – those are moments that I don’t take lightly, for which I am extremely grateful.”
