Ashley Judd Sues Harvey Weinstein, Says He Sabotaged Her Career

Ashley Judd Sues Harvey Weinstein, Says He Sabotaged Her Career
Updated with statement from Weinstein’s rep: Ashley Judd has filed a lawsuit against Harvey Weinstein alleging that his pattern of retaliation, defamation, and sabotage against women who refused his sexual advances damaged her career.

The suit’s claims partly hinge on the news reports about Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh wanting to cast Judd in their Lord of the Rings movies backed by Weinstein’s Miramax in 1998. The suit says that, in retaliation for Judd rebuffing Weinstein, he “torpedoed Ms. Judd’s incredible professional opportunity” when he told Jackson and Walsh “that [his] studio had had a ‘bad experience’ with Ms. Judd, and that Ms. Judd was a ‘nightmare’ to work with and should be avoided ‘at all costs.’ ”

“With those baseless smears, Weinstein succeeded in blacklisting Ms. Judd and destroying her ability to work on what became a multibillion-dollar franchise with 17 Academy Award wins and

many more nominations,” the suit reads.

Ashley Judd Sues Harvey Weinstein for Damaging Her Career
Ashley Judd filed suit in Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday, accusing Harvey Weinstein of retaliating against her because she refused his sexual advances.

Judd contends that Weinstein smeared her reputation to director Peter Jackson, causing him not to cast her in “The Lord of the Rings.”

“Mr. Weinstein’s abusive conduct toward others has caused no end of damage to aspiring actors and others in the film and entertainment industry,” Judd said in a statement. “As my experience and the experience of others shows, even a few false statements from Mr. Weinstein could destroy potentially career-changing professional opportunities. It’s time that Mr. Weinstein be held accountable for that conduct and for the ways in which he’s damaged careers.”

Judd is seeking damages for defamation, sexual harassment and violations of California’s unfair business competition law.

Judd first revealed that she had been harassed by an unnamed studio

Harvey Weinstein has denied trying to derail the careers of Mira Sorvino and Ashley Judd after director Peter Jackson claimed the disgraced producer attempted to prevent the two women from starring in his Lord of the Rings franchise.

State of the Galaxy: Empire's End and Thrawn Forshadow the Future of Star Wars

  • Cinelinx
With The Last Jedi on the horizon, a couple new Star Wars book releases over the last few months have offered some interesting teases of what's (potentially) to come, and added other key details into the new canon. As such, it's time to break it all down and get a grasp on the current "State of the Galaxy."

Obviously, I’m a little behind on this one as a couple of big novels have launched since our last State of the Galaxy update. However, that means there’s plenty to talk about, but if for some reason you haven't checked out these books and still want to be surprised, I'm going to be blasting full bore into spoiler territority.

Marvel Movie & TV Crossover Still Possible, Says Kevin Feige

Marvel has done well creating their shared movie universe, displaying far better execution with their properties than their rival DC Comics. Using 2008’s Iron Man as a launching pad, The Marvel Cinematic Universe has become a box office juggernaut, executing phase after phase with near perfection.

While having massive success in theaters, Marvel has slowly been building a secondary universe on the small screen. Beginning in 2013 with Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. for ABC, and then teaming up with Netflix to bring a grittier, more adult show with 2015’s Daredevil. Marvel’s movie universe tends to make use of the bigger and more mainstream characters, while the TV shows have focused on the lesser known Marvel properties such as Jessica Jones and Iron Fist.

Marvel News Round-Up: DC Crossovers, Taika Waititi's 'Thor' Role, Captain Marvel's Design and More

Marvel's Cool with People Crossing Over to DC Marvel Comics and DC Comics have long had a rivalry. They are competing business enterprises, after all. But that rivalry has always been more rabid among the fans than the companies themselves. For decades people loved to pit the comics against each other, and now they're doing it with the movies as well. But does that animosity exist between Marvel Studios and Warner Bros.?  Not really, at least according to Kevin Feige. The Marvel Studios honcho confirmed they don't force their actors into contracts that stipulate what other superhero projects they can and cannot take on. That's why they're totally okay with Josh Brolin going from playing Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War to Cable in Deadpool...

The Punisher Wraps Production On Season 1

Like it or not, we don't know a heckuva lot about Marvel and Netflix's The Punisher TV series, starring actor Jon Bernthal. That's cool. We know secrets are a big deal with these superhero films and shows. So, what do we know? Let's break it down...

Daredevil Season 2 established Frank Castle (Bernthal) as a decorated combat veteran with a bullet in his head and a tendency toward bloody, visceral violence. By the end of Season 2 Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) and Frank Castle, despite some violent interactions, had established a kind of non-agression pact (more like a temporary cease fire), and they even forged a brooding respect for one another -- to the extent that the Punisher freely stalks rooftops in Hell's Kitchens shooting ninjas, and Daredevil seems mostly Ok with that. As a jumping off point, Castle embraced his alter ego, burned down his house, and walked away with an

Black Lightning: Fox Rejects Pilot, The CW Likely To Pick Show Up

A few weeks back, Lrm had a story where Greg Berlanti (Creator of Black Lightning and all the CW DC shows) said that it would be highly unlikely that the worlds would crossover if it even existed. One of our ace reporters here -- oh, who am I kidding, it was just me -- wrote that he did not actually say, "No." Additionally, I speculated how cool it would be to tie the Speedforce into Black Lightning's powers, and that Berlanti's phrasing makes me think that it could fail on Fox and simply end up on The CW anyways. Well, it appears that the show did not even make it to the pilot as Fox has dropped the big budget show.
