Personal Life

Mayim Bialik and Michael Stone exchanged vows on August 31, 2003, in a Victorian-themed wedding ceremony that incorporated traditional Jewish customs. Bialik occasionally shared family vacation stories on Groknation and posted images of her sons on social media, although these updates became less frequent as her children grew older. Their divorce was announced in November 2012 and was finalized six months later. Bialik has been candid about the difficulties of balancing her career with motherhood, explaining her decision to temporarily step away from acting to focus on raising her children. She made her return to television in 2010, prioritizing family time over continuing her scientific career.

Bialik is a vegan and has played an active role as a founding member of the Shamayim V’Aretz Institute, a Jewish organization advocating for the ethical treatment of animals. She was also a co-owner of the Los Angeles vegan restaurant Bodhi Bowl, in partnership with her longtime friend, chef Ali Cruddas. Unfortunately, the restaurant closed down in 2020 due to the pandemic.

Acting Career

After a brief hiatus from television, Bialik made her return with a recurring role on the series “Webster,” which aired from 1983 to 1989. This comeback took place in the years 1988 to 1989. In recognition of her commitment to acting, she received a deferred acceptance to the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).


In 1990, Bialik secured the lead role in the TV series “Blossom,” a sitcom centered around the life of a teenage girl residing with her father and two brothers. Despite not meeting the academic prerequisites for medical school, Bialik pursued a Ph.D. in neuroscience. Her appearance, which diverged from the typical glamorous image of teenagers in television and film, propelled her to teenage stardom. Ultimately, she completed her Ph.D. in neuroscience at UCLA in 2007, mentored by Dr. James McCracken.

‘The Big Bang Theory

In 2010, Bialik made a determined return to acting, making a notable appearance in the season 3 finale of “The Big Bang Theory.” She then became a regular member of the popular sitcom’s cast for its fourth season, portraying the character of Dr. Amy Farrah Fowler. Amy, a neurobiologist and the girlfriend who later becomes the wife of Jim Parsons’ Sheldon Cooper paralleled Bialik’s own academic background in neuroscience. Her outstanding portrayal in the series led to multiple Emmy Award nominations for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series.

Parenting and Religious Views

Upon her return to the acting scene, when questioned about her religious beliefs, Bialik openly acknowledged her aspiration to follow Modern Orthodox Judaism. Although she was brought up as a Reform Jew, she now identifies herself as a practitioner of Modern Orthodox.


Bialik has authored four books, two independently and two in collaboration with pediatrician Jay Gordon. In her book titled “Beyond the Sling: A Real-Life Guide to Raising Confidence, Loving Children the Attachment Parenting Way,” released in March 2012, Bialik shared her perspective on “attachment parenting” and offered insights into her parenting journey with her then-husband Michael Stone. Stone had converted to Judaism before their 2003 marriage, and together, they raised their two sons, Miles and Frederick.

Her third book, “Girling Up,” delves into the challenges and developmental changes that girls go through, offering scientific insights into these transformations. Unfortunately, after much contemplation and soul-searching, Bialik and Michael decided to divorce due to ‘Irreconcilable Differences.’ Their divorce was finalized in May 2013, concluding their nine-year marriage.

The New York Times op-ed

Amidst the emergence of sexual misconduct allegations against Harvey Weinstein, Bialik authored a notable New York Times op-ed. In this piece, she criticized the entertainment industry for its profit-driven exploitation and objectification of women. The media frenzy that followed speculated about potential repercussions, even suggesting she might lose a finger. Responding to this speculation via social media, Bialik humorously confirmed that she intended to keep all her fingers.In her op-ed, Bialik stressed the importance of acknowledging the imperfect world in which women should ideally have the freedom to express themselves as they choose. She emphasized that nothing could excuse men for assaulting or mistreating women. This article came in the wake of the explosive revelations about Harvey Weinstein’s behavior, which ignited the #MeToo movement.


In January 2021, Mayim Bialik launched her podcast titled “Mayim Bialik’s Breakdown.” The podcast centers around discussions related to mental health issues, providing a platform for open and informative conversations on this critical topic.
