* Likewise, Creator/LindsayLohan, who owes her career to her early Disney films even more than Hathaway does.
** Some people, ''including her own father'', disowned her when she came out of the closet and revealed her girlfriend, Samantha Ronson.
*** Lindsay and her father seem to be have mended their relationship as of late. Also it should be noted that her father was apparently against her being with Samantha not so much out of objection to the lesbian relationship but because he thought Sam was a bad influence on Lindsay (given Sam's recent D.U.I. charges, it doesn't sound so farfetched).

does. Before Lindsay and her father seem was cast in ''Film/MeanGirls'', it was written to be have mended their relationship a racy R-rated affair with (to quote Tina Fey "wall to wall titties"). As she was considered a family-friendly actress, it was changed to PG-13 and much of the racier content was cut. Lindsay also turned down an offer to pose for ''Playboy'' as she had a Disney film coming out, and tried not to dress too skimpily in public out of late. Also it should be noted fear of upsetting her younger fans. And it's precisely for this reason that her father party girl antics and drug abuse was apparently against her being with Samantha not so much out of objection to the lesbian relationship but because he thought Sam was a bad influence on Lindsay (given Sam's recent D.U.I. charges, it doesn't sound so farfetched).

* Music/HilaryDuff, Disney's ''Series/LizzieMcGuire'', somehow managed to avoid this, despite several close calls. She keeps a low profile in the press, doesn't publicly party, drink, or go out without underwear, and keeps mostly to family-friendly roles like ''Film/ACinderellaStory'' and ''Film/RaiseYourVoice''. There were some minor controversies involving her relationship with 10-years-her-senior [[Music/GoodCharlotte Joel Madden]], and her roles on ''Literature/GossipGirl'', where her character was involved in a ''[[ThreeWaySex ménage à trois]]'' with Dan and Vanessa, and in ''Film/WarInc.'', where she played a spoiled, slutty foreign pop star who gets the main character's attention by ''putting a live scorpion down her pants''. Of course, it helped her image that, in the former case, most of the MoralGuardians' ire was aimed at the show's writers and at Creator/TheCW rather than at Hilary, and in the latter, that her character was a tragic ''parody'' of young, oversexed {{idol singer}}s, complete with a pimp who planned on having her "star" in a porn movie. In any case, all of these blew over very quickly, and failed to tarnish her squeaky-clean image, so it's clear she's overall succeeded in averting this. It also helps that she married a hockey player (generally the least scandal-prone of the major sports leagues) and had her first baby, ''within'' wedlock, with him, at the relatively young but perfectly reasonable age of 23.
** She lampshaded it in an interview on ''Chelsea Lately'', when they talked about how she got pregnant.

It does appear she's recovered from this stigma; she later became (for a while) the bassist for an all-girl indie rock band.
** Around the time ''Material Girls'' came out, she mentioned turning down a lot of DarkerAndEdgier roles as she felt that accepting them would've been a betrayal to her fans.
** Duff did a guest starring role on ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'' playing a NoCelebritiesWereHarmed version of Casey Anthony, a flaky, selfish party girl whose first line is screaming the word, [[PrecisionFStrike "Bitch!"]] No one batted an eye. It may have helped that her character vanished halfway through the episode [[spoiler: after it was revealed her daughter died due to a virus and not murder.]]

drug habit.



** 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 performance (to be replaced with Creator/MirandaCosgrove and Music/RickAstley), and the breakup of the group not long after.
* Creator/BrendaSong of ''Series/TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody'' appeared in ''Film/TheSocialNetwork'', where her character has a quickie with Andrew Garfield's character in a bathroom stall in an early scene (though no nudity is seen -- it ''is'' a PG-13 movie, even with all the swearing). In other scenes, she is seen drinking and [[DisproportionateRetribution setting a scarf on fire over a Facebook relationship status]]. However, her role in the film didn't garner any controversy, and she still appeared on ''Suite Life On Deck'' up to that show's finale in 2011. But wait until she shows up in the ''Film/WestSideStory''-inspired movie ''Boogie Town'', which will show a sex scene there...
** Rumors once circulated that she was pregnant with Trace Cyrus' baby. The two got engaged around the same time. Months later, she stated that she had never been pregnant and the engagement was called off. Many speculate that she miscarried. However, since she was no longer on Disney at this point, there wasn't much backlash to begin with.

* Creator/WaltDisney actually kept himself under this, being quite a chain smoker, to the point where he eventually succumbed to lung cancer, but he made a point of making sure never to be seen smoking in public, as he wanted project a wholesome personal image.

** About a decade later, WWE amended the policy, stating that no talent under the age of 21 was allowed to be ''signed''. No official reasoning was given for the change, but it's speculated that this was in response to several older call-ups who were signed young that displayed immature behavior on the road (such as Wrestling/{{Paige}} and Wrestling/BoDallas). Any talent that was already signed that technically broke the rule was grandfathered.

* Averted with Wrestling/Asuka. While she has never gone as far to pose nude, she was a well-known MsFanservice in her pre-WWE days, being a Gravure model, releasing a few DVDS and ''more than a few'' pictures, portraying a PsychoLesbian, kissing her fellow female wrestlers, allowing male wrestlers to grope her and even once added a stipulation to a match against Lin Bairon that the loser would have to [[ShamefulStrip remove her top and bare their breasts to the audience]][[note]]She won but only only got as far as pulling down Lin's bra-strap before she managed to run off[[/note]]. None of this has stopped her becoming arguably the most dominant female wrestler in WWE history.

* Wrestling/RomanReigns was all but anointed to succeed to Wrestling/JohnCena as face of the company, much to the despair of the fans. And then he violated the Wellness Policy and got suspended. Obviously, the face of the company cannot have that kind of black mark on his record. He ate three cleans in the space of a month and suffered numerous humiliations -- Rollins took numerous shots at him during his suspension while building to the Shield Triple Threat on RAW, his cousins the Usos lifted Wrestling/DeanAmbrose, one of the men who pinned him clean, on their shoulders during Dean's celebration for his win, and Wrestling/StephanieMcMahon verbally eviscerated him live in front of the entire RAW roster losing the title to [=SmackDown=]. It's fairly obvious the company is beginning to de-push him in favor of others, and that Reigns' chances of officially succeeding Cena have gone down immensely.

When a young actor comes to public prominence in association with clean, wholesome family entertainment roles, the expectation of studios and audiences is that the actor's personal life will reflect the same upright morality of the character he or she plays.

Heaven forbid, then, that said actor should be found engaging in perfectly legal, perfectly normal adult activities like drinking alcohol or having sex. And should said actor take a role in a production where he or she will do things like nude scenes, using foul language or engaging in criminal behavior, then MoralGuardians will arise against that actor for [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks betraying their expectations]]. Some actors [[PlayingAgainstType deliberately seek out such roles precisely to shed their image]], and seemingly the majority of male ones lately go through a phase of sporting stubble for photoshoots and red-carpet events to remind us they're not boys anymore ([[DawsonCasting even if they are still playing high school students]]).

There are two sides to what happens with this controversy. First is that MoralGuardians really have no right to get upset that it is "corrupting our youth" because an individual of a certain age is well within their legal rights to smoke, drink, swear, have sex, etc. On the flip side, being a public figure, especially one who is popular and well-known amongst young people, carries a certain degree of responsibility for the influence one may have, since he or she ''will'' be treated as a role model. [[Series/TheAdventuresOfSuperman George "Superman" Reeves]], for example, took great pains to not smoke or be seen with his lady-friends in front of children. (He was also careful because kids wanted to see if he was as invulnerable as he was on TV.)
