    I love Ashley Judd. As an actress and she is tireless with her charity work and often times she doesn’t try to court the media of where she has been or what she is doing. She is beautiful inside and out.

    i heard her say that she gets annoyed when fans recognize her/compliment her or ask for her autograph. she said that when someone gives her a compliment it is to make themselves feel better. i couldn’t even imagine being that arrogant to utter those words. she is a stuck up bi—. it is her fans that have helped make her millions & she owes it to them to be gracious. heck – not even as an actor but as a human being we should all be humble & gracious relative to someone being so nice as to give us a compliment. i will never see one of her movies again – she used to be one of my favorite actors.

    heres two things I can do without. The UN, and celebrities that think they have the ability to run anything. Celebs for the most part run hardly aspect of their business life. Everything is catered to them, everything is an assistant, a promoter etc… they aren’t doing it on their own. yet they want people to listen to them like they know something now that they are a celeb? I’ll listen joe the mechanic that owns his house free and clear over the celebs that got to where they are in backseats and on tabloids anyday.

    Eddie Jones and I think alike on this issue – the UN is a huge rip off spending money like mad but accomplishing very little if anything. I do like Ashley Judd. She is growing into a very graceful mature lady. Too bad she is duped into believing that she can do good through the UN. She is aging beautifully with a few wrinkles to show she’s paid her dues. She should lighten her hair, though. The dark dark hair is too harsh. Lighter would soften her face and enhance her beautiful features.

    OMG- What happened to her? Everyone ages, but she is not at all old.

    #6 – I don’t know about the stuff you mentioned, but I have heard she is extremely nasty in real life.

    There is lots of hypocrisy around Ashley. Read more at the I Hate Ashley Judd category at Join the haters. You’re welcome there. We know what she’s all about.

    Jaielle – I sure would love to hear more details about that!! :)

    Luara #6 you “heard” something about Ashley Judd and now you “hate” her, not even knowing if it’s true? What are you, 12?

    I for one know for a fact, from personal experience, that Ashley is warm, funny, smiling, friendly and a lot of fun. She is beloved in her home state of Kentucky for being so accessible and as friendly at the Starbucks as she is at University of Kentucky basketball games. She hardly ever wears makeup and shops at the grocery store in her jeans like everyone else.
    She is a normal, down-to-earth 40-year-old who just happens to be prettier than most 40-year-olds.

    Is that why you people hate her? Get a life of your own!

    she looks older than her age in hollywod. but she looks younger than her age in normal world.
    I think she just got her age naturally.

    ace tomato Says:

    It’s not the greatest lighting – but she is obviously allowing herself to age gracefully. She looks like any other 40 year old w/out cosmetic surgery or buckets of Botox. In Hollywood, that’s Rambo brave lol.

    I don’t like her much, and the UN is a corrupt, money laundering, illegal back alley double dealing entity – but the celebrities that are associated with the UN are there because they want to do charity work on a global scale. You can’t fault Ashley Judd or Angelina Jolie or the late, fabulous Audrey Hepburn for the political scandals and corruption of the UN. It isn’t tied to kind hearted celebrities visiting starving children – it is beyond them and probably way beyond their ability to comprehend politics and global economics.

    Here age is really starting to catch up with her quickly.

    lilyanne Says:

    Some people’s comments simply amaze me. Here is a beautiful 40 year old woman who is aging gracefully without botox, or body parts augmented, lifted, tucked, or altered in any way and yet people complain. If she had any signs of having “work” done some people would complain about that, too.
