Emmy-winning actress and neuroscientist Mayim Bialik isn’t afraid to speak out about her sometimes-unconventional social views, from writing a book about attachment parenting to criticizing hyper-sexualized celebrities in a recent essay.
Now, she’s talking candidly about religion in entertainment, claiming that “it’s never going to be trendy to be observant or religious in Hollywood circles” in an interview with FOX411.
“There are people I know of faith and we tend to congregate together,” she said, describing how she interacts with her Jewish faith in a less-than-welcoming environment. “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.”
