* Annette Funicello maintained this image for most of her career, though Walt Disney himself tried to keep her from wearing bikinis in her ''Beach'' movies. She only stuck to this in the first, where she still wore a revealing suit, and later on she wore bikinis anyway. ** That's because she was still under contract to Disney when she was loaned out to Creator/AmericanInternationalPictures for the first beach party movie, but she wasn't for the rest of them. And anyway, she wore a bikini (albeit a [[http://www.flickr.com/photos/bryan10983/4529505906/ demure]] one) in ''Beach Party'', so I have no idea why this rumor still persists. ** Annette Funicello even told the clearly ''incorrect'' version in her [[http://www.beachpartymoviemusic.com/TheMythoftheHiddenNavel.html autobiography.]]

* ZacEfron and Music/VanessaHudgens of ''Film/HighSchoolMusical'', who [[RomanceOnTheSet dated in real life]], caught a bit of flak for such terrible things as making out on the beach and letting it be known that they were *gasp* doing things of a more intimate nature. A camera catching a condom falling out of Efron's pocket as he walked the red carpet led to a short-lived outcry. Seeing as how they were pretty much a perfectly-normal couple in their mid-twenties, it was all a little ridiculous. They have both politely but firmly explained this. Repeatedly. Given the fact they remained a steady couple for over three years despite being barely out of their teens, stayed together right at the height of their media frenzy rather than taking advantage of their new fame, were obviously practicing safe sex (see the alleged condom), guarded their private relationship fiercely and even post-break up were genuinely amicable and never used the paparazzi to turn on each other, you'd think parents might see them as ''good'' example for teens. Especially as they came off as more mature than a lot of Hollywood relationships. But apparently they had to be as squeaky clean as their high school counterparts.\\

But apparently they had to be as squeaky clean as their high school counter-parts. ** Hudgens' multiple nude photo scandals, however, are a far straighter example. On top of the usual outcry about a kid-friendly actress posing naked, there were also concerns about Vanessa's age when she took the pictures -- while she's in her early twenties now, she was [[JailBait about 17 or 18]] when the first ''High School Musical'' film came out, which is also around when some of the photos (at least the first batch of them) are believed to have been made. Of course, the fact that the photos weren't made for public consumption is pretty much lost on the MoralGuardians. In addition, the leaks of said photos probably [[TropesAreTools helped Hudgens break out of her Disney type casting]] more easily than her ''High School Musical'' co-stars -- she's since taken roles in films like ''Film/SuckerPunch'' and ''Film/SpringBreakers'' and the role of Mimi in a Hollywood Bowl production of ''Theatre/{{RENT}}'', all of which have her dressed in provocative outfits (and in the case of ''Spring Breakers'', doing nude scenes), and she's done several [[PublicExposure sexy photo shoots]] for fitness and fashion magazines. ** Efron, too, has had troubles with this. He became known as a party animal after the ''High School Musical'' series wrapped up, with multiple short-lived stints in rehab, to the point where Creator/LeaMichele (whose boyfriend and ''Series/{{Glee}}'' co-star Creator/CoryMonteith died of a heroin/alcohol overdose) [[http://hollywoodlife.com/2014/04/09/lea-michele-zac-efron-seek-help-drugs-cory-monteith-death/ begged him]] to give it up. Like Hudgens, he too has embraced his "bad boy" image, playing a [[WackyFratboyHijinx drunken frat boy]] villain in ''Film/{{Neighbors|2014}}''. *** Not so much purity, but Efron was asked by Disney to downplay some of his hobbies to the public, like playing VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft, reading Manga (especially Manga/DeathNote), and generally being something of a nerd.

Very often will ''actually'' be enforced by a [[OurLawyersAdvisedThisTrope morals clause]] in the contract.

* This trope was a big reason why Creator/BillCosby's sex scandal became as big an issue as it did. Ever since ''Series/TheCosbyShow'' in the '80s, he'd had a reputation as "America's Dad" and a role model for young people, especially young black men, and was known for his [[MoralGuardians criticism of violence and sexuality in the media]] (particularly HipHop). The allegations that he had {{date rape}}d a number of women over the course of his career, combined with his reaction to them, did serious damage to that image; a number of articles published in the wake of the allegations bemoaned how African Americans had [[BrokenPedestal lost one of their best role models in a storm of scandal]], and how "if you can't trust Bill Cosby anymore, who ''can'' you trust?"

** The same holds true for JapanesePopMusic idols, even with its own infamous example! In 2013, Music/{{AKB48}} member Minani Minegishi was caught leaving the house of a member of Japanese Boy Band Music/{{EXILE}}. AKB fans[[note]]in Japan; western fans were either much more sympathetic towards her or didn't really care beyond "it's her fault for breaking the rules of the group"[[/note]] were ''pissed'', so much so that she shaved her head (a symbol of remorse in Japan) made a tearful apology video begging not to be kicked out of the group. She was instead demoted to the Kenkyussei unit. The whole thing was fairly controversial, sparking some moral debates that [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement we won't get into]]. These days, she's pretty much back to star status.

** After his tenure on ''{{ER}}'', however, most of his family-friendly stigma is gone. Since then, he's been in a few commercials and has done a few episodes of ''LawAndOrderSVU''. One particular episode he stars in has him as a pig who exploits a multitude of women for sex in order to have copious amounts of children, and he sweet-talks them out of whatever job they may have.

** Oddly enough there was a well-known photo circulating the internet of Wrestling/KellyKelly peeing into a sink and she never faced any backlash from it. Since she was only 19 when the photo was taken - and another young superstar Kenny Dykstra became known for his aggressive partying - WWE now have a policy that no wrestlers under 21 are called up to the main roster.

* During the 1980s and 1990s, Michael Gallagher wrote for MarvelComics, often contributing to squeaky-clean titles such as the comic versions of Series/{{ALF}} and CareBears before getting more creative (though still clean) with ''GuardiansOfTheGalaxy''.
