          When she appeared topless on the cover of Gear magazine March 2000 issue (SEE cover page), it created a controversy because she was not yet 18 years old when the photo was taken. The producers of 7th Heaven filed a case against Gear magazine. According to Biel, she regretted doing it and considered it a “learning experience.”
