“On film and in real life, two pregnant 16-year-olds spark moral debate.” So reads a headline on a recent story by the Associated Press — referring, of course, to the revelation two days ago that Britney Spears’s sister Jamie Lynn is pregnant, and also to the movie Juno, which goes into wide release on Christmas Day after an enormously successful three weeks in limited release. Both of them were beaten to the punch, though, by Keisha Castle-Hughes, who also became pregnant at the age of 16 last year shortly after finishing work on The Nativity Story — in which she played perhaps the most famous pregnant teenager of them all.
It’s The China Syndrome meets Three Mile Island. It’s Wall Street meets the Crash of ’87.
