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

My Comment: You either play the game in Hollywood or you don’t work. It’s all clear now.
