Sorry, but I'm not ready to accept Ruthie as a sex symbol

Beverley Mitchell has written the following.

So my last day of 7th Heaven was on thursday March 8, 2007! We don't know if it is officially over but it was definitely sad! It is up to our fans to bring us back for an unprecented 12th Season. So be sure to watch and tell all of your friends. We love doing it for you. But if it is the end, my deepest gratitude to the amazing people I have shared the past 11 years with, and thank you to the fans for giving me the best job in the world!

Mitchell has always had the "good girl" image - unlike, say, Jessica Biel. But that hasn't stopped a blogger from trying to turn Mitchell into a sex symbol.

The effort seems rather forced, the pictures rather tame. AskMen.Com doesn't buy it, either.

Don't get us wrong: We love Beverley Mitchell, but we just don't perceive her as a sex symbol. Even if she is in her early 20s, and is a woman by definition, we still see her as our 15-year-old kid sister. It doesn't help that she is part of a goody-goody TV family that's eerily realistic. If this were Beverly Hills, 90210, it would be a totally different story.

I agree that some celebrities should just be left alone with their wholesome images!

Mandy Moore is one I'd like to see stay somewhat goody-goody.

Unfortunately, we all know what happens to those child stars who don't find a way to either a)stay employed, or b)stay away from drugs - they end up in compromising, not so goody-goody pics anyway. =/

When these kids are surrounded by power, money, and adoration in their teen years, it's not surprising that so many of them become fodder.
