Ashley Judd

Ashley Judd using Peter Jackson, LOTR as evidence in Harvey Weinstein lawsuit

Judd has accused Weinstein of sexual harassment and defamation, citing his "baseless smears" about her to Sir Peter as the reason she missed out on a role in the Oscar-winning trilogy.

The Divergent actress was one of the first women to come forward as part of the #MeToo movement, publicly detailing a "breakfast meeting" with Weinstein, in which he asked Judd to watch him shower and to let him massage her.
