Ashley Judd, who was one of the first actresses to accuse Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment, opened up at the Sundance Film Festival, reported People.com. She said, “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.’” She added, “It was never my shame and it was the perpetrators’ shamelessness which he put on me — and I’ve given that shame back to the perpetrator where it belongs.”
“And I talk about this from the perspective of from hurting to healing to now helping, but I have the exact same experience where this one summer I was incested and I thought that I had a relationship with an adult man and that it was fancy because he was wealthy. It was just the sophisticated affair and it was outright incest because he was married to a family member,” Judd added.
