Kirk Cameron: Wives Should 'Honor and Respect and Follow Their Husband's Lead'

Originally posted 04/29/2016 11:25AM

Kirk Cameron is once again sparking conversations with his conservative views on marriage.

In a recent interview with the Christian Post, the former Growing Pains star said, "Wives are to honor and respect and follow their husband's lead, not to tell their husband how he ought to be a better husband. When each person gets their part right, regardless of how their spouse is treating them, there is hope for real change in their marriage."

He's used to getting love letters and high-fives as a former teen heartthrob, but onetime Growing Pains actor Kirk Cameron isn't letting the mockery and criticism dissuade him from promoting his controversial project to dispute evolutionary theory.

"Atheism has been on the rise for years now, and the Bible of the atheists is The Origin of Species," Cameron tells PEOPLE. "We have a situation in our country where young people are entering college with a belief in God and exiting with that faith being stripped and shredded. What we want to do is have student make an informed, educated decision before they chuck their faith."

Jessica Biel has come a long way, baby, from her days as a preacher's kid on Seventh Heaven. Now that she's fighting vampires in the upcoming Blade: Trinity, Biel is letting her inner tough-girl out to play. "It was so much fun. I loved it," says the actress of the action in the movie, which also stars Wesley Snipes and Ryan Reynolds. "What a dream to be able to kick boys' butts all day long. Girl power!" Girl power, indeed: To get ready for her butt-kicking role as a "Nightstalker," Biel says she "trained about six days a week in the gym. There was weightlifting and then I had about an hour of fight training a day and an hour of archery. So it was intense, and it was for the whole shoot." All that training has certainly boosted her confidence, too: When we asked who would win in a fight between her character and that other vampire slayer, Sarah Michelle Gellar's Buffy, Biel says: "She's got stakes, but I could get her from a hundred yards away." Blade: Trinity opens Dec. 8.
