7th Heaven Child Star Mackenzie Rosman Strips Down To Racy Lingerie For Maxim
Don’t worry, she’s totally legal now…although she probably wasn’t the last time you saw her.
Mackenzie Rosman rose to fame playing the youngest Reverend’s daughter on the hit WB series 7th Heaven from 1996 through 2007. But these days, the 23-year-old actress is causing men across the United States to praise Jesus for an all new set of reasons. The former child star stripped down to her bra and panties for a sexy shoot with Maxim recently. But Rosman isn’t the first 7th Heaven alum to strike a sexy pose on the cover of an international publication. Jessica Biel, aka Mrs. Justin Timberlake, posed topless on the cover of Gear back in 2000 when she was only 17-year-old. The controversial move was Biel’s attempt of breaking free from her squeaky clean persona.

“I was probably nine at the time, but I remember that. It was a big deal,” Rosman said of Biel’s scandalous attempt to sever ties with the show. “The magazine was banned on set, I think by orders of Aaron Spelling. I sneaked a peek at it, though. It was racy gossip amongst the women of 7th Heaven!”
But despite the controversy, Rosman admits she “looked up to Jessie a lot. She and I connected; we were just more alike than the others.”
And with that in mind, she’s not worried about if friends, family members, or fans are “surprised” by her Maxim shoot. “They might be,” she says. “But you know what? It’s who I am.”
Read Rosman’s full interview with Maxim when the September 2013 issue hits newsstands on August 13, and catch her in the upcoming SyFy movie Ghost Shark, which premieres Thursday, August 22 at 9 p.m. ET. Can you believe how stunning this starlet is?
