Double Jepoardy

When Ashley Judd reappeared to promote her awesome new ABC series Missing, the first thing people (the press mainly) focused on was her fuller face. Almost overnight people began to speculate if the youngest Judd had plastic surgery and begin to get extremely loud with their speculation. Apparently they don’t know about Ashley and she proceeded to rip them a new one in an intelligent way penning a letter with powerful statements like:

“the conversation was pointedly nasty, gendered, and misogynistic and embodies what all girls and women in our culture, to a greater or lesser degree, endure every day, in ways both outrageous and subtle. The assault on our body image, the hypersexualization of girls and women and subsequent degradation of our sexuality as we walk through the decades, and the general incessant objectification is what this conversation allegedly about my face is really about.” Wow read more about Ashley’s postion agaist the catty industry here: and tell us what you think about Ashley’s comeback in comments or @mediamyxx @akireshenri
