You adulteresses, do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.
I was over at Benediction Blogs On reading some great posts when I came across this link. It is a website/talent agency for men, women, and children who are supposedly actors, actresses, and models for Christ. That’s Christ Jesus in case any one is wondering.
When I clicked over to “Actors, Models, and Talent for Christ,” I found a link that featured some of the talent agency’s “most successful” clients. One of the ones listed is Mena Suvari. For those who don’t know, Suvari has appeared in such “sex romps” as American Pie and American Beauty. These films aren’t fit for anyone to watch, much less act in; and while I was a bit bemused that I was seeing Mena Suvari as one of their success stories, I was completely sickened when I saw this description of her on their website:
Suvari’s ticket to fame was the teen sex quest American Pie (1999), which cast her as a wholesome high-schooler who falls for a jock (‘Chris Klein’). A few months later, she turned even more heads as the vampish cheerleader who captures Kevin Spacey’s unwholesome imagination in American Beauty (1999). The sultry-but-fragile character earned Suvari a British Academy Award nomination, as well as a flurry of job offers and gushing fansites. In the midst of the hubbub surrounding the film, she slipped off with her boyfriend, cinematographer Robert Brinkmann, to tie the knot in a secret ceremony. The media was quick to point out the pair’s 16-year age difference, but Suvari shrugged it off (her parents are separated by more than 20 years). The in-demand actress completed her patriotic hat trick by starring in American Virgin (2000) (originally titled “Live Virgin”) as the daughter of a porn king. The title change wasn’t enough of a boost to keep the mediocre movie afloat in theaters—after a brief New York run, it headed straight to video.
What sickens me is this… where is Christ in all of this? How can a company say it is “for Christ” when one of their top success stories is an actress of sinful morals, and they even brag about that sinful behavior in her profile description as if it’s something to be proud of?
Would you say this is a success or that they are sold out to the world?
They need to take Christ out of their name.
