Ashley Judd Reveals What's Next After She Was 'Maliciously Blacklisted' By Hollywood

Ashley Judd is on the cover of Town and Country magazine’s April 2018 issue, on newsstands March 6.

Here’s what the actress, who was one of the first to come forward about Harvey Weinstein, shared in her interview with Salma Hayek:

On what’s next for her: “I hope to have more opportunities now… I’m going to be doing a show on Broadway this fall. I was offered a romantic comedy. And that is the greatest amends that Hollywood can make for having maliciously blacklisted me.”

On how opening up has changed her place in Hollywood: “Now that I’m more connected to this community again, I feel a shift and sense of real discovery about female alliances. My favorite conversation recently was with Joan Collins. . .who immediately started telling me about the sexual harassment she experienced when she was 17 years old on her first set. And I feel really loved and appreciated right now. in these Time’s Up meetings, when I speak I notice that everyone really pays very close attention to what I say, so that’s a really sweet experience for me to have, like I have earned my stripes.”

On standing up for her beliefs: “I’ve always been a fighter. I’ve always been very devoted to the cause, whatever that cause may be. I think I was born with a healthy sense of righteous indignation, but I’m definitely a product of my environment and my childhood. I’ve acquired a lot of resilience.”

Ashley Judd Lost a Role Because She Wouldn't Take Her Shirt Off During the Screen Test

Ashley Judd is opening up about her experiences with sexual harassment and gender bias in Hollywood.

The Monster actress took the stage for Univision Communications’ Behind the Camera: Where Diversity Begins panel during Sundance Film Festival on Sunday (January 21) in Park City, Utah.

“Well first of all, my first audition yielded a screen test and I was asked to take my shirt off. It was between another woman and me, and I said that isn’t about our acting, that’s about evaluating a pair of breasts. And the answer was not ‘no’ but ‘hell no,’” Ashley said on stage.

She also revealed the price she has had to pay in her fight against sexual harassment.

“I have to know the hill on which I’m willing to die. And the hill on which I’m willing to die is equality, and if that means going to jail, being maligned, being defamed, having tremendous economic loss because I stood up to Harvey Weinstein – and it’s incalculable the amount of money I could have made that I didn’t – that’s the hill on which I’m willing to die,” Ashley added.

Ashley Judd Says James Franco's Response to Sexual Harassment Allegations was 'Terrific'

Ashley Judd is weighing in on James Franco‘s response to accusations of sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior.

The actress, who was one of the first to accuse Harvey Weinstein and help launch the #MeToo movement, says that James had a “terrific” response.

In a late night interview this week, James said that the accusations he read were “not accurate, but one of the things that I’ve learned is that this is a conversation that obviously needs to be had. There are people, women and others, who have not been a part of this conversation and I truly believe and why I was wearing the pin is that they need to be a part of this conversation and so I support that.”

Ashley opened up to the BBC this week as well.

“I think that what James said is terrific,” she said (via Vulture). “And I think that we’ve all behaved – at a certain level – unconsciously, and done things that were insensitive, inappropriate, without necessarily understanding that they were. I mean we’ve all operated with a certain amount of tone-deafness, and I like the culpability, and we have to have restorative justice. This is about men and women being all together and having a more equitable and just workplace, home life, social spaces.”
