Ashley Judd rarely justifies public scrutiny. She has been in the limelight her whole life. When she wrote this rebuttal, regarding 'her puffy face,' and all the media buzz, I was thrilled. She is razor, edge smart. She is an accomplished actor (her film Helen had a huge impact on me), author, wife, scholar, humanitarian and family person. That's what should be talked about. I applaud her for her courage and bravado. Women deserve a break. A paunchy, middle-aged, male actor, artist, writer, or musician's looks are often overlooked. He is praised on sheer talent, instead. Don't we girls deserve the same respect?
Here is Ms. Judd's piece as it appears In The Daily Beast.
It is worth the read and a slap on the wrist. Give It To 'Em, Ashley.
You're gorgeous and they're just jealous.
