Mackenzie Rosman wants to make sure we all realize she isn’t Ruthie Camden, the youngest daughter on 7th Heaven.To prove her point, she stole a page from on-screen big sis Jessica Biel’s notebook and posed for Maxim.
As someone who grew up watching the long-running Christian show, it’s really strange to see these pictures… Largely because 23-year-old Mackenzie still has the same baby face as when she was on the show.
Then again, you know what they say about preachers’ daughters!
Mackenzie (who I keep subconsciously calling Ruthie) also talked to the magazine about how Jessica Biel’s topless photo shoot for Gear made an impression on her — even though Mackenzie was just nine years old at the time.
“It was a big deal. The magazine was banned on set, I think by orders of Aaron Spelling,” Mackenzie said. “I sneaked a peek at it, though. It was racy gossip amongst the women of 7th Heaven!”
Hopefully Mackenzie doesn’t look back on her own spread the same way as Jessica, who later said she regretted the entire decision. Still, Mackenzie seems to know what she’s doing, considering she’s older than Jessica was and she’s been the subject of a photo controversy before: Pictures of Mackenzie making out with another girl and posing in her underwear leaked when she was 19.
Mackenzie has kept a relatively low profile since 7th Heaven ended its 11-year-run in 2007. However, the Maxim spread was conveniently timed for release during the same week as her new TV movie trailer, Ghost Shark.
Looks like we’ll soon be seeing a lot more of Mackenzie in more way than one… The complete spread will be in September issue of Maxim.
