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.”
