* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Invoked in-universe, where unmarried women are expected to be chaste and refined. This is referenced most concerning Margaery Tyrell, who is "officially" a virgin and behaves like a PrincessClassic in public but more like TheVamp in private.

** In more recent times, though, Swift has garnered quite a bit of controversy (mostly among her own fans) for the ridiculous amount of short-term relationships she's had during the last few years. Many fans have branded her a slut -- somewhat curiously, given that a repeated claim of many of her ex-boyfriends is that she ''doesn't'' put out. ([[Music/OneDirection Harry Styles]] [[http://www.hollyscoop.com/taylor-swift/harry-styles-dumped-taylor-swift-for-being-a-prude went as far]] as to call her "an {{asexual|ity}} prude.") Others ([[http://www.digitalspy.com/music/news/a292306/taylor-swift-has-basic-formula-for-songs.html such as]] Creator/ConanOBrien) have joked that the reason for her constant cycle of breakups is so she could have an endless stream of material to write sad songs about. On the more mainstream front, Swift managed to dodge the cleanliness bullet by sexying up her image so slowly that no one noticed it until it was done.

* One story in ''Manga/BlackJack'' centers around a fifteen-year-old idol who is going through an endoscopic pregnancy. Because she was marketed on the appeal of being a wholesome girl, her manager is desperate that this all be kept under wraps. [[spoiler:The story gets out anyway, and Black Jack is disgusted that the manager is more upset that the idol has lost her appeal, rather than being glad that she survived.]]

* A really disgusting example occurred in Scotland in 2009, when the ''Sunday Express'' newspaper printed a [[www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sunday_Express_Dunblane_controversy front page attack piece]] on some survivors of the Dunblane school massacre, which had happened thirteen years before, for allegedly insulting the memory of their dead schoolmates by talking about [[FelonyMisdemeanor drinking, fighting and sex]] on social networking sites. It was suspected that the story was inspired purely by the fact that they had reached 18 and were no longer protected by Press Complaints Commission rules about intrusion into their private lives.

* Creator/KristenStewart became a victim of this after photos of her smoking pot outside her house were published. She began as a child actor and then got her big break as Bella Swan in ''Literature/{{Twilight}}''.
** Knowing how Kristen Stewart and Creator/RobertPattinson [[MoneyDearBoy feel about their roles as Bella and Edward]], it's entirely possible that the reason she didn't take that joint inside is because she was hoping on this trope coming into play. She and Pattinson have admitted that they don't go along with contractual purity because neither would see being dropped from the ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' series [[CreatorBacklash as such a bad thing]]. She was also probably smart enough to know that she and Pattinson were ''the'' faces of the franchise, and could do just about anything except murder or kiddie porn and still be asked back for the next one.
*** ...or later on, except adultery, in the case of Kristen Stewart and ''Film/SnowWhiteAndTheHuntsman''. The man Stewart cheated with, director (and married father) Rupert Sanders, managed to avoid scandal and get asked back. [[DoubleStandard Somehow.]]

* A [[ZigzaggedTrope zigzagged]] case can be found for FormerChildStar Creator/MaraWilson. She first gained fame as the younger daughter character in ''Film/MrsDoubtfire'', but played (mostly) family-friendly roles in films such as ''Film/ASimpleWish'', ''Film/{{Matilda}}'' (as the title character) and ''WesternAnimation/ThomasAndTheMagicRailroad'', her final movie. She retired from acting while still a child in 2000, graduated from college while studying drama, and is as of 2014 a blogger, playwright, burgeoning novelist and volunteer social worker in UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity. Despite being in her late twenties, and having not been in any kind of acting role outside of online web project and college stage acting, she often receives (online and in person) negative comments from many fans that their childhoods were ruined [[SheIsAllGrownUp regarding how her figure filled out]] in the years since she left Hollywood, and commentary about her often profane language, liberal outspokenness and more adult humor on her website, {{Twitter}} account and writings. She has also expressed some horror that journalists reviewing the [[TheMusical Broadway musical version]] of ''Matilda'' recommended fans of the musical see a performance of her play, ''Sheeple'', [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids emphasizing that the play]] is ''not'' for kids. In her 2016 autobiography she revealed that her parents had a rule that she could only do family-friendly films while she was still a child.

* Creator/DrewBarrymore zig-zagged through this. She began her career as a child star in films such as ''{{Film/ET}}'' and ''{{Film/Firestarter}}'' but soon became infamous for rampant drug problems before she was even a teenager. She still worked in the industry however, and the film ''Film/PoisonIvy'' was essentially her playing on the public's [[MetaCasting perception of her]]. After getting sober in the 90s, she carved out a career as a respected adult actress - in films that were far more squeaky clean like ''Film/NeverBeenKissed'', ''Film/EverAfter'', ''Film/TheWeddingSinger'' etc.

She also describes a very straight example from when she and a group of other child actors were part of a charity camping trip - and they got punished for playing Spin The Bottle in their tent. It apparently made the organisation look bad to be seen doing such a thing.

* Katy Manning got some flak for posing naked with a Dalek in a men's magazine some time after she left ''Series/DoctorWho''. Some fans even bring it up while criticising Jo as being a helpless piece of meat for male characters to kidnap and slaver over, even though the character in the show is generally strong and plucky and not especially sexualised (although by no means a [[GirlsNeedRoleModels completely unproblematic blow for feminism]]).
** Apparently the NostalgiaFilter is stronger than this trope, as she made a one-shot return to the Franchise/{{Whoniverse}} in ''Series/TheSarahJaneAdventures'' story "[[Recap/TheSarahJaneAdventuresS4E5E6DeathOfTheDoctor Death of the Doctor]]". This may have been helped by the fact that it's been ''33 years'' since the photoshoot.
* Taylor Momsen is starting to get this after adopting a much racier public image, which she puts down to firing her stylist. She has publicly stated that she doesn't want to be compared to squeaky-clean Disney stars, and "doesn't fucking care" about being a [[GirlsNeedRoleModels good role model]] for young girls. She's best known for ''Series/GossipGirl'' but began her career as a child actor.

** Adrienne Bailon has also been an enjoyable train wreck to watch since the Cheetah Girls group and movies ended. She hung around the Kardashians for a few years, and eventually staged a fake nude photo controversy cooked up by Bailon and a gossip blogger in an attempt to boost her career. Said controversy caused the group to back out of a planned UsefulNotes/MacysThanksgivingDayParade (to be replaced with Creator/MirandaCosgrove and Music/RickAstley), and the breakup of the group not long after.

* This happened to Sherri Finkbine, the hostess of Phoenix's localized ''Romper Room''. She had been taking thaliomide while pregnant and sought an abortion when she was convinced that her baby would be deformed[[note]]sure enough, when the baby was aborted it was revealed that it had no legs and one arm[[/note]]. The incident caused her to become linked with the pro-choice movement (this was all the way back in 1962).
