Biel made the rounds in Sacramento on Tuesday, joining with ant-vaxx activist Robert F. Kennedy Jr.at the California State Assembly to lobby against SB 276, a state bill that would limit medical exemptions from vaccinations without approval from a state public health officer.

She was there to lobby against a California State Bill which would mean that parents wouldn't be able to get their children out of compulsory vaccinations without permission from a public health officer.

State health officials estimate that more than 40% of the 11,500 medical exemptions expected to be requested each year would be denied under the bill, according to the Los Angeles Times.

"The biggest problem with the bill, which is something I think Jessica is concerned with, is that a doctor who has made a determination - if he has found children in this state whose doctors have determined that they're too fragile to receive vaccinations - this bill would overrule the doctors and force them to be vaccinated anyways", he said.

Actress Jessica Biel has joined the parade of prominent Hollywood actors who are opposing mandatory vaccinations for California.

Kennedy's anti-vax post featuring Biel received congratulatory comments from former porn star Jenna Jameson, Golden Globe-nominated actress Rosanna Arquette, and James Van Der Beek's wife Kimberly.

"She was a very effective advocate", Kennedy Jr. said of Biel to The Daily Beast.

The debate over whether or not vaccinations are safe for children is both complex and contentious, particularly since a recent measles outbreak in the U.S. Biel appearing to take a public stance on the matter caused much stir on social media.

"She was very strong and very knowledgable".

A representative for Biel did not immediately respond to CNN's request for clarity on Biel's views on vaccines. That's the highest number of cases the country has seen since 1992, the CDC reported - a major step back, after measles had been "declared eliminated" in 2000.
