The iconic and brilliant character of Amy Farrah Fowler in the famous TV Show “The Big Bang Theory” is far away from being a fiction role. The Jewish 39 year old actress Mayim Bialik who plays Amy and owns a neuroscience degree, spoke her thoughts on recent interviews about religious matters in Hollywood. “I think in general it’s never going to be trendy to be observant or religious in Hollywood circles. There are people I know of faith and we tend to congregate together,” she told Fox411.
Bialik has always known the challenge that rises from being a religious figure in Tinseltown, but it hasn’t stopped her from doing her own faithful practices like going to synagogue, resting on Sabbath or just studying Jewish texts; “I study Jewish texts weekly. That’s something really positive to me when you’re a person of faith; it stays with you all the time.”
The conservative actress has also recognized to support “privacy and chastity”, a quality that is quite rare nowadays, but she isn’t a fan of the bureaucracy in organized religion, which says a lot of her convictions.
She also talked about her dressing code, referring it as a modest one. “Being a modest dresser, that for me is a certain amount of my religious faith — privacy and chastity. Just because I have a body, doesn’t mean it [needs] to be on display,” she told Fox411. “It’s important, especially for children and men and my sons to hear I’m not ashamed of my body, I just don’t feel the need to display it with two tiny pieces of fabric when I want to go swimming.”
