Years later, after Cosby himself was accused and sued by dozens of women for past sexual assaults and rapes, this moral grandstanding became the height of hypocrisy in hindsight.

* Wrestling/MollyHolly speaks against this trope in her shoot interview. As she was a Christian in real life, many dirtsheets 'reported' that she left WWE because they wanted her to "play the T&A card" - and apparently disliked the Fanservice heavy Diva Search contests. Molly said she wasn't bothered by T&A, describing it as "a part of show business". Fans also seem to forget that she still participated in plenty of bikini shoots during her time in the company.

* For many jobs in general, you're always told that you're the face of the company that you work for. Getting into trouble with the law, doing unsavory acts, or even going behind the company's back to bad mouth them on social media is a quick way of getting fired.

* Creator/AnneHathaway was the target of an explosion of controversy when she appeared topless in the movie ''Havoc''. Her previous roles: both ''[[Film/ThePrincessDiaries Princess Diaries]]'' movies and ''Film/EllaEnchanted''. Since then, she's successfully graduated into doing more adult roles with no further controversy, including playing a recovering heroin addict in ''RachelGettingMarried'' and starring in ''Film/LoveAndOtherDrugs'', which features several extended nude scenes.
* Likewise, LindsayLohan, who owes her career to her early Disney films even more than Hathaway does.

* AlysonHannigan, sweet little Willow Rosenberg from ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', managed to avoid this when she took on the role of kinky, foul-mouthed Michelle in ''Film/AmericanPie''. Perhaps the fact that Willow herself was allowed to grow up (and come out of the closet) may have had something to do with that.

* The implication of this plays a big role in Manga/Heroine Voice. Suzu Ayase was a popular IdolSinger who got egged on by websites that accused her in dating an anime producer and going home with a fan of her work. Though these charges aren't real, they did play a part in her quitting idol work and relocating to a different voice acting agency. For that matter, being only ''seventeen years old'' meant she had no idea how to handle any of it.

* 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.\\

* Creator/JulieAndrews did this both in and out of character in her husband Creator/BlakeEdwards' film ''{{Film/SOB}}'', playing an expy of herself who appears topless in ''her'' husband's new film. She also has a reported tendency to curse up a blue streak, which still shocks people to this day that see her as her more wholesome roles of Film/MaryPoppins and [[Film/TheSoundOfMusic Maria von Trapp]]. (In fact, ''{{Film/SOB}}'' is partly based on her and Edwards' experience with the notable 1970 flop ''Film/DarlingLili'', in which she attempted to break out of her goody-goody image by playing a UsefulNotes/MataHari {{expy}}).

* Creator/JulieAndrews did this both got famous for playing two quintessential MagicalNanny characters in ''Film/MaryPoppins'' and ''Film/TheSoundOfMusic''. This gave her a squeaky-clean image that she came to resent. An attempt at getting out of character it came in the film ''Film/DarlingLili'' where she plays a FemmeFataleSpy - who even does a ''striptease'' on stage! But the film flopped and she didn't see much success. She did however use her experiences of the TroubledProduction in her husband Creator/BlakeEdwards' film ''{{Film/SOB}}'', playing an expy of herself who appears topless in ''her'' husband's new film. She also has a reported tendency to curse up a blue streak, which still shocks people to this day that see her as her more wholesome roles of Film/MaryPoppins and [[Film/TheSoundOfMusic Maria von Trapp]]. (In fact, Blake Edwards's ''{{Film/SOB}}'' is partly based on her and Edwards' experience - where she plays an actress with a goody two shoes image who is convinced to appear topless in a film. But as of the notable 1970 flop ''Film/DarlingLili'', in which 2000s, she attempted has returned to break out working for Disney, albeit in a more AdamWesting manner of her goody-goody image by playing a UsefulNotes/MataHari {{expy}}).earlier image.



* Creator/MelissaJoanHart of ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'' sent the folks at Franchise/ArchieComics (who are infamously protective of their "wholesome" brand image) into a frenzy when she appeared in lingerie in an issue of ''Maxim''.
** This is a particularly interesting example. ''Maxim'''s target audience was not the same target audience for ''Sabrina'', but was about the right age to have been the target audience for ''Series/ClarissaExplainsItAll''. Many readers loved the issue because they got to ogle Clarissa, and at the same time many disliked her shoot because they couldn't stop seeing her as the protagonist of a pre- and early-teen show on Nickelodeon.
*** [[HilariousInHindsight Amusingly enough]], there was an episode of ''Clarissa'' that centered on her accidentally stealing a bustier and then attempting to return it without anybody finding out.

** When ''Series/ClarissaExplainsItAll'' finished its run, Melissa was now an adult but her mother didn't want her to pursue DarkerAndEdgier roles - though this was apparently a business move to capitalise on her kid fanbase. Thus her next project was the family sitcom ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch''. She has said that once that was over, she found it hard to get cast, because people only [[IAmNotSpock saw her as a teenager]] (even though she was in her late 20s when the show finished). Thus people were startled at her playing a mother on ''Series/MelissaAndJoey''.

* Rapper Nelly arguably damaged his mainstream career by making the "Tip Drill" video. Before it came out, Nelly was being groomed to be like the next WillSmith (but with more street cred), as a rapper who had mass appeal and wasn't like the other hardcore gritty rappers in the mainstream. So now there's this huge backlash and Nelly's career seemed defined by that raunchy vid. It arguably sapped his career's momentum.
