Judd Upset by Prostitution Documentary

5 July 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Ashley Judd has been left scarred for life after filming a harrowing documentary about Madagascar's young prostitutes for MTV. The actress agreed to fly out to the African nation to report on the problem after hearing how teenage hookers slept with men, who often refused to wear contraception, in make-shift streetwalk shacks. And she discovered the sex industry was as dark as she'd feared, leaving her visibly shaken during scenes in upcoming film Tracking The Monster. She says, "I thought I couldn't be shocked any more. I can be moved, I can be distressed but I can't be shocked; I've seen it all. Bullc**p. They (hookers) have sex with their clients on the sidewalk under a piece of plastic they have pooled their resources to buy." Judd goes on to report that relief groups fear Madagascar will become the site of the next AIDS epidemic because unprotected prostitution is so rife as 70 per cent of the nation is forced to live below the poverty line. »

Actress Ashley Judd narrowly avoided death after her luxury bus was destroyed by a fire, while she was shooting a movie scene on Monday.

But fortunately, she had left the bus to film a scene when it burst into flames, after a crew member left an unattended candle in the vehicle. Nobody was hurt, but damage to the bus - which was parked outside Los Angeles' Hollywood Country Club - came to a staggering $500,000. »

Swank Was Third Choice for 'Baby'

7 March 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actress Hilary Swank has Sandra Bullock and Ashley Judd to thank for her Best Actress Oscar for Million Dollar Baby - because the role was refused by both actresses. The movie's producer Albert S. Ruddy's first choice for the part of a tragic female boxer was Bullock, who turned down the part when she was told she could not pick the director - Ruddy next approached Judd, whose salary demands would have busted the budget. After Ruddy finally settled on Swank, Bullock's agent called him and said she would do the picture after all, but, "Al just said, 'Too late,'" a source told website Pagesix.Com. »
