Interview: "7th Heaven" Star Mackenzie Rosman

For 11 saintly seasons, Reverend Camden and his family ruled the WB with their unique brand of squeaky-clean hijinks on 7th Heaven. But now Mackenzie Rosman, who played curly-haired cutie Ruthie, is 23 years old, gorgeous, and ready to let the world know. She spends her days pursuing her acting career, collecting stamps, and, well, being extremely good-looking. So please enjoy these sinfully hot photos, and we’ll meet up with you later in the confessional.

Check out Mackenzie's Maxim gallery.

Will people be surprised to see you looking like this?
They might be. But you know what? It’s who I am. 
What was it like working with Jessica Biel, who played your big sis on 7th Heaven?
I looked up to Jessie a lot. She and I connected; we were just more alike than the others.
Do you remember when she did that topless shoot for Gear magazine while she was on the show?
I was probably nine at the time, but I remember that. It was a big deal. The magazine was banned on set, I think by orders of Aaron Spelling. I sneaked a peek at it, though. It was racy gossip amongst the women of 7th Heaven!
Stephen Collins and Catherine Hicks, who played your parents on the show, have both been in Star Trek movies. Are you a Trekkie?
I like Star Wars. I mean, I don’t go to the conventions and dress up like Obi-Wan Kenobi or anything, but I like watching the movies.
Now, we have always won­dered: Why was everybody on the show blond except for you?
I think that was something we pushed under the rug. I’ve heard some pretty interesting theories, like I was adopted from Puerto Rico or the mom had a tryst with somebody. I don’t know.
Are there any 7th Heaven drinking games?
No, but I would like to see one. You could drink whenever Ruthie rolls her eyes or when Lucy squeals.

Is there anything fans would be surprised to know about you?
I’m a philatelist.
A what now?
A philatelist. I collect stamps.
That sounds dirty. 
Oh, yeah. I’ve been doing it since I was six or seven. I have a whole book!
Are you dating anybody right now?
Well, you’ll have to ask my boyfriend.
Got it. What’s the first thing you notice in a guy?
Manners. Like, just be respectful. I don’t deal with the whole bad boy who doesn’t call you. That doesn’t interest me at all, and I just look the other way.
Do you have a celebrity crush?
I used to have a really big crush on Hayden Christensen.
It makes sense that Obi- Wan Kenobi would have a crush on Anakin Skywalker.
It makes total sense. He just seems really tortured.
