Best performance by a Coloradan in a national magazine
Desperate to dump the goody-two-shoes image she'd earned as one of the stars of 7th Heaven, seventeen-year-old Jessica Biel, a healthy (very) Boulder girl, took off both those shoes -- and everything else, and posed for a raunchy cover and nude spread in Gear. The pictorial earned the mag a $100 million lawsuit from Aaron Spelling, producer of Biel's TV series, which prompted this response from publisher Bob Guccione Jr.: "As for his assertions that Gear is sleazy, it's like the pot calling the kettle black. We are an entertainment magazine with serious journalism. But I must have missed the serious cultural references in Melrose Place and 90210."
