For many Disney Channel stars, who as teenagers starred in their own shows and recorded tracks for Hollywood records, the road to "adulthood" is one that often equates sexuality with maturation. Although Miley Cyrus may be the most extreme example of this phenomena, those who have followed this script have included High School Musical alumni Zac Efron (who appeared pulling up his shirt on the cover of Rolling Stone around the time the film's sequel premiered) and his co-star Vanessa Hudgens, who acted with other Disney prodigy Selena Gomez in last year's risqué Spring Breakers.
This is not, however, the path of David Henrie, who fomerly acted alongside Gomez on "Wizards of Waverly Place." Recently the filmmaker of the new short "Catch," Henrie told The Christian Post last week that maturing in Hollywood did not imply that child and teen actors hoping to reshape their careers had to go to extreme lengths to alienate former fans.
"I think everyone as they transition out of a younger show wants to transition into a career of acting unless you didn't like acting and you don't want to do that anymore," explained Henrie. "You have to transition out of it and that comes with doing older, more mature roles, but that doesn't mean doing crazy things that just insult your audience. Your audience has to grow with you." more >>

Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson, who became a target of gay rights advocates and triggered a national firestorm last fall for calling homosexuality a sin, defended his comments in a recent sermon in which he said people only got mad because he told them the truth.
In an impassioned Easter Sunday sermon on sin he delivered at Whites Ferry Road Church in his West Monroe, Louisiana, hometown, Robertson said all he did in the controversial GQ interview which sparked the firestorm was tell them the scripture and it was treated as personal opinion.
"The news media didn't even know it was a verse! They thought I was just mouthing off. 'Is homosexual behavior a sin?' The guy asked me. I said, 'Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Don't be deceived,'" said Robertson at the cross-shaped pulpit. more >>
