Ashley Judd Reacts to Harvey Weinstein's Arrest

Ashley Judd, one of the first women to come forward with allegations against Harvey Weinstein, is speaking out after the disgraced producer was arrested following a long investigation.

Weinstein was charged with rape, sex abuse, and sexual misconduct for encounters with two women, the NYPD confirmed.

“That Harvey Weinstein, a powerful man who thrived and flourished as he shattered and abused women in a culture of impunity was arrested and charged is resoundingly significant. It is a watershed event, an irreversible pivot away from tacit and explicit license to exploit to clarity about unacceptable behavior no longer being tolerated,” Ashley wrote on Twitter.

“Today, these images of Harvey in handcuffs are possible because of the voices, backbone, & determination, in spite of the unknown & retaliation, demonstrated by survivors & the journalists who reported our stories,” she added.

Harvey Weinstein Responds to Ashley Judd Defamation Lawsuit

Harvey Weinstein is lashing back after Ashley Judd announced that she has filed a lawsuit for attempting to ruin her career.

The 50-year-old actress – who was one of the first to come forward when the 66-year-old disgraced producer‘s scandal came to light – says that Harvey smeared her reputation to Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson, leading him to not cast her.

Ashley is seeking damages for defamation, sexual harassment, and violations of California’s unfair business competition law.

After the suit was filed, a representative of Harvey‘s had this to say on the disgraced producer’s behalf:

“The most basic investigation of the facts will reveal that Mr. Weinstein neither defamed Ms. Judd nor ever interfered with Ms. Judd’s career, and instead not only championed her work but also repeatedly approved her casting for two of his movies over the next decade,” THR reports. “The actual facts will show that Mr. Weinstein was widely known for having fought for Ms. Judd as his first choice for the lead role in Good Will Hunting and, in fact, arranged for Ms. Judd to fly to New York to be considered for the role. Thereafter, Ms. Judd was hired for not one, but two of Mr. Weinstein’s movies, Frida in 2002 and Crossing Over with Harrison Ford in 2009. We look forward to a vigorous defense of these claims.”

Ashley Judd Sues Harvey Weinstein for Sexual Harassment & Harming Her Career

Ashley Judd is suing Harvey Weinstein, claiming he sabotaged her career.

The 50-year-old Double Jeopardy actress filed suit in Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday (April 30), accusing the 66-year-old disgraced film producer of retaliating against her because she turned down his sexual advances.

Ashley, who was one of the first to come forward when Harvey‘s scandal came to light, says that Harvey smeared her reputation to Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson, leading him to not cast her.

Mr. Weinstein’s abusive conduct toward others has caused no end of damage to aspiring actors and others in the film and entertainment industry,” she said in a statement. “As my experience and the experience of others shows, even a few false statements from Mr. Weinstein could destroy potentially career-changing professional opportunities. It’s time that Mr. Weinstein be held accountable for that conduct and for the ways in which he’s damaged careers.”

She is seeking damages for defamation, sexual harassment, and violations of California’s unfair business competition law.
