Mayim Bialik: Hollywood is not friendly to people of faith

Mayim Bialik 1


Mayim Bialik is best know for her role as “Blossom” on the NBC sitcom of the same name and as the quirky Amy Farrah Fowler on “The Big Bang Theory, ” but the 39-year-old is also known as a person of faith in Hollywood.

Bialik has consistently used her celebrity as a platform to support causes that are important to her and to share her message of modesty with her fans. At times that means upsetting a few people here and there.

Bialik, who is Jewish, recalled a recent trip to Israel that caused quite a stir on social media.

“I’ve gotten a lot of negative attention for visiting Israel, ” she told FOX411. She was visiting a friend in the Israel Defense Forces. “That’s what’s amazing…simply by going to Israel this summer and saying nothing more than, ‘I’ve gone to Israel, ‘ I got the same amount of hatred and threats and anti-Semitism for actually making a statement trying to support people whether I like it or not are serving in an army.”


The star, an active member of the Jewish faith, acknowledged in a Facebook post sharing the interview that her statements about religion had eclipsed what she had to say about her latest endeavor,

“yes, I did an interview with FOX news, and yes they put a sort of flashy saucy title on it, but they talked about GrokNation and I appreciate that very much!” the 39-year-old Emmy nominee wrote.
