Christian actor Patricia Heaton, outspoken about her Catholic faith and pro-life beliefs, is warning entertainment mogul Kanye West about the difficulties that come with being a believer in Hollywood.

The Carol's Second Act star told The Christian Post she is "definitely praying for" West, who last week released Jesus Is King, his ninth studio album, which is chock-full of Bible references and alludes to his newfound Christian faith.

"It's very hard," she said. "I think when someone of his stature in the industry and someone who has his amount of fame makes that kind of proclamation, people then really watch and scrutinize everything he does to catch him falling down."

Heaton went on to say she hopes the 42-year-old rapper is able to withstand the intense criticism he will have to endure. There are those, particularly in Tinseltown, who "want to see him fail at Christianity," she added.

There have also been plenty of Christians skeptical of the entertainer's nascent faith. In his song "Hands On," featuring gospel singer Fred Hammond, West addresses believers who have criticized his public conversion.
