While Ashley Judd was busy promoting her new television series, Missing, the media was focused on more than her acting – they were sparking rumors about her appearance.
The biggest question – did she have ’plastic surgery’? Afterall, her face is so puffy. She had to have done something. Wrong.
While Judd usually doesn’t comment on the rumors in the press, she decided she could no longer sit idly by and wrote an article in the Daily Beast, slamming the media. She is tired of what all girls and women in our culture endure every day, the assault on our body image.
Judd ripped into all of the comments about her appearance – including how she must have had plastic surgery because she doesn’t have wrinkles to being referred to as a “cow” since she went from a size 2 to a size 8. And of course – her husband was already looking for his second wife because she gained weight. In a word – RIDICULOUS.
Judd asks the question,
“Who makes the fantastic leap from being sick, or gaining some weight over the winter, to a conclusion of plastic surgery? Our culture, that’s who. The insanity has to stop, because as focused on me as it appears to have been, it is about all girls and women. In fact, it’s about boys and men, too, who are equally objectified and ridiculed” She continued, “It affects each and every one of us, in multiple and nefarious ways: our self-image, how we show up in our relationships and at work, our sense of our worth, value, and potential as human beings.
