Ashley Judd Files Lawsuit Against Harvey Weinstein

Ashley the latest to come forward!

Judd’s suit alleges that Weinstein deterred director Peter Jackson, who oversaw the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy, and his producing partner Fran Walsh from working with Judd on the films, a move that not only “torpedoed” her opportunity to star in the Academy Award-winning franchise but also cost her additional work.

She claims to have met with Jackson and Walsh in or around 1998 to discuss two different roles in the film, but the pair “dropped their pursuit” of her for the project after Weinstein told them the studio had “a bad experience” working with Judd, according to the lawsuit.

Judd says that a year prior to the meetings, she rejected sexual advances from Weinstein!

To date, there have been harassment allegations and stories from more than 80 women that span several decades… A representative for Weinstein also denied the allegations that he smeared Judd’s name.
