Ashley Judd is suing Harvey Weinstein, claiming the former movie mogul destroyed her career.
In an interview with ABC News, the actress said, “I lost career opportunity. I lost money. I lost status and prestige and power in my career as a direct result of having been sexually harassed and rebuffing the sexual harassment.”
She added, “My career opportunities, after having been defamed by Harvey Weinstein, were significantly diminished. My career was damaged because I rebuffed Mr. Weinstein’s sexual advances. I know it for a fact.”
In the lawsuit, Judd says Weinstein put the kibosh on Peter Jackson casting her in the Lord of the Ringsmovies.
Judd said she'd donate any money from the lawsuit to the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund.

Blake Lively Deletes All Instagram Photos -
Blake Lively fans were hyperventilating yesterday, but they’re better now.
The actress deleted all the photos off her Instagram account and naturally got people wondering if she and Ryan Reynolds split. Not even close!
Lively, when her account was clean, added a photo of a hangman game with the sentence “What happened to Emily?” And, she is only following women with the name Emily Nelson. Fans then wondered if this has something to do with her upcoming film, ”A Simple Favor” which is directed by Paul Feig and also starring Anna Kendrick.
It’s an adaptation of a book by the same name in which a woman named Emily Nelson mysteriously vanishes.
