Mayim Bialik shares beliefs in chastity and modesty despite being in Tinseltown

Bialik, 39, is Jewish and has been vocal on being very observant and religious, despite being part of the entertainment industry. She relates on the difficulties she has overcome with her advocacy for modesty and embracing religion in Tinseltown. Despite her stellar status, she strongly believes in "privacy and chastity."

"I think in general it's never going to be trendy to be observant of religious in Hollywood circles. There are people I know of faith and we tend to congregate together," she explained. "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."

Bialik currently has two children and an impressive degree in neurosciences. She continues to share her religion, as well as her "unwavering faith," and claims she believes there is a greater power than herself. However, she also claims that he isn't a fan of bureaucracy in organized religions.

To express her faith and to express her value for her religion, she cuts off social media for Sabbath and she occasionally visits synagogues or stays at home for Sabbath dinners. Bialik noted that she values the importance of modesty and avoids flaunting her body. These actions are all rooted from her faith and religious values.

"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 stated. "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."
