Ashley Judd believes healing is out birthright

Ashley Judd's chances of landing a role on "Lord of the Rings" got torpedoed after she turned down Harvey Weinstein's alleged sexual she says in a new lawsuit.

The civil lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court in Santa Monica, alleges that Weinstein caused Judd to lose a part in 1998 in the film "The Lord of the Rings" by making "baseless smears" against her.

"These comments included, but were not limited to, statements made to Mr. Jackson and Ms. Walsh in a private business meeting that Ms. Sorvino was 'a nightmare to work with.'" Ms. Sorvino told The New Yorker in October that Mr. Weinstein tried to massage her and "chased her around" a hotel room at a film festival in 1995. "A self-described 'benevolent dictator' who has bragged that 'I can be scary,' Weinstein used his power in the entertainment industry to damage Ms. Judd's reputation and limit her ability to find work".

The actress, 50, is suing disgraced Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein for sexual harassment, defamation, intentional interference with prospective economic advantage, and unfair competition, per The Hollywood Reporter.
