Mackenzie still remembers when Jessica Biel posed for Gear magazine in 2000. “The magazine was banned on set, I think by orders of Aaron Spelling. I sneaked a peek at it, though.”
That same year was when the show “7th Heaven” went off the air. She’s surprised she’s still remembered for it. “It really reinforces the thought of, ‘What if I had done one thing differently?’ Nothing in my life would be the same if I hadn’t gone with my friends to that audition while I was in kindergarten. It’s weird, the turns life takes.”
She used to own a near menagerie of animals, including a pig, chickens, a rat and cats. She also rode horses as a competitive show jumper.
Mackenzie is involved in charity, including the Childhelp organization, Cystic Fibrosis and Cure Finders.
In an interview in 2010, Mackenzie said she isn’t a stranger to depression and anxiety and sometimes didn’t want to leave her house.
Asked if people would be surprised to see her in lingerie in Maxim, Mackenzie said, “They might be. But you know what? It’s who I am.” Mackenzie Rosman resides in Los Angeles.
