Ashley Judd: News

Ashley Judd, like her mother and sister, became an artist. However, she did not become a country singer like Country Music Hall of Famer Naomi Judd and country singer Wynonna Judd, her mother and sister respectively. Instead, she became an actress, a good one at that. Later, she used the platform of media attention she received to promote humanitarian concerns. Born on April 19, 1968, in Los Angeles, Judd spent most of her childhood in Kentucky with her mother after her parents divorced. Before becoming a regular in Hollywood, she majored in French at the University of Kentucky. She began her career as an actor in 1991 by appearing in the TV series ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation.’ Her feature film debut came in the 1992 film ‘Kuffs.’ Judd received her big break after her lead role in the movie ‘Ruby in Paradise’ (1993). She later appeared in various successful films, both critically and commercially, including ‘Heat’ (1995), ‘Double Jeopardy’ (1999), ‘Frida’ (2002), etc. She received Golden Globes nominations in 1995 and 2005 and Primetime Emmy Awards nominations in 1996 and 2012.
