Ashley Judd Covers 'Redbook' February 2010

Ashley Judd Covers 'Redbook' February 2010

Ashley Judd shows off her gorgeous smile on the February 2010 cover of Redbook magazine.

The 41-year-old actress, who’s currently at Harvard pursuing her master’s degree in public administration, sat down with Redbook to speak about activism, advocacy and romance.

On how her work as a global advocate for HIV-infected youth sparked her decision to go back to school: “My hope with the education is to have a finer, more nuanced understanding of the context in which I’m working as an actress and an activist. I really enjoy my life as it is, advocacy and art, moving between the two.”

On staying home alone while her mother and sister toured the country: “One’s life can inform activism in a powerful way. What I grew up with was not so healthy, and I’m now flipping that. I have the ability to make something healthy out of it.”

On her husband, race car driver Dario Franchitti: “He’s shy, he’s very funny, very down-to-earth. Very warm. He likes to play. He’s very bookish, actually, reads far more than I do. He’s very studious about cars. His dad was a club racer, and his grandfather loved cars. There was a natural abililty in him. He started driving when he was 3.”

    I did not use to be a fan of Ashley’s, but the article in February 2010 Redbook changed all that for me. What an amazing woman. I am happy to see that a woman of my generation is “grabbing the bull by the horns”. I wish that I could resume my education at this time; however, being a full-time is what I choosen. I have heard that Ashley does not want her own biological children and if that’s what she and Dario want so be it. I also would like to commend her on her work with Goody’s, I only wish they had stores in Michigan, but this upcoming April when I expect to be vacationing in the southeast, I’ll be sure to stop in! Ashley, you sound like a great person that I would like to get to know better. Also, I am greatly interested in your charity work. Best of luck to you, Michelle

    She’s a shining example for the sad crop of starlets who’ve followed her!

    And the little interest in commenting thus far is evidence of the dismal state of culture today!
