Do You Believe Her?

August 25th, 2007 Visited 2406 times, 1 so far today

I don’t usually like to go into a situation where I doubt what they are saying is true.  Said slightly differently, I want to believe what you say.  So, I’m finding it rather difficult to believe Jessica Biel when she says:

I definitely worry about how my family would react. You can’t help thinking about your dad or brother seeing something. I don’t have to be fully naked for the movie. I haven’t decided exactly about the nudity. It’s a tough one. I’m considering it but it’s a very scary thing to do. It definitely feels vulnerable to be naked in front of anybody, let alone a film crew.

Why am I having this problem?  As Alexandra Foley reports at Modestly Yours in an article entitled Biel: Stop Me From Posing Nude Again!:

But consider the contract she signed that, according to the article, “details the bare minimum fans will see – including shots of her breasts (nipples from the front and side) and her butt (side view only).”

So, here’s a woman who claims she’s conflicted.  She doesn’t want to be exploited (pictures of her body all over the Internet) but she wants to do the movie.  I believe that this is a case of actions speaking louder than words.

To me, if you didn’t want to do the nudity in the movie, you don’t do it.  There’s a principle here.  If you say “Oh, I don’t want to do this”, but then you do it anyway at worst you’re tempted and gave in and at worst you’re a liar/hypocrite.

    I have a question. It’s going to sound confrontational and for that I am sorry, but I am curious.

    Why are so many of your posts about women and what they should or should not be doing? And I don’t mean this Jessica Biel stuff, but all the other posts about Chrsitian behavior for women. It seems skewed. Each time I have visited here, I have wondered why more of the posts don’t concern general Christian themes, or posts for men.

    Is this purposeful?
