Ashley Judd Says She Was Asked to Take Her Shirt Off During Her Screen Test

  Ashley Judd Says She Was Asked to Take Her Shirt Off During Her Screen Test Ashley Judd opened up about her experiences with abuse and gender bias in Hollywood at an emotional panel at the Sundance Film Festival on Sunday. Joined by a group of diverse filmmakers and Hollywood power players, Judd and the panel discussed inclusion in Hollywood, addressing practical solutions to spur change in the industry and beyond. Judd, who has been outspoken about the Harvey Weinstein scandal, opened up about her own history with both discrimination in film and sexual abuse. “Well first of all, my first audition yielded a screen test and I was asked to take my shirt off. It was between another woman and me, and I said that isn’t about our acting, that’s about evaluating a pair of breasts. And the answer was not ‘no’ but ‘hell no,'” she recalled at the panel, titled Univision Communications Behind the Camera: Where Diversity Begins. Discussing her new Sundance film Monster, which addresses themes of sexual assault, Judd said the storytelling resonated with her deeply. Speaking about her own willingness to discuss her history of sexual abuse, Judd said, “I understand it was never my shame and it was the perpetrators shamelessness which he put on me — and I’ve given that shame back to the perpetrator where it belongs.” The actress previously discussed her depression and traumatic childhood in her 2011 memoir All That Is Bitter and Sweet.

Actress Ashley Judd was the first high-profile woman to go on record with sexual assault allegations against film producer Harvey Weinstein, and her story served as a catalyst for dozens of other women to come forward, prompting a massive takedown of Weinstein and other men in power.

During the interview, the Why Him? actor said the claims that were made by several women on Twitter after his Golden Globes win were “not accurate.” He added, “I completely support people coming out and being able to have a voice because they didn’t have a voice for so long. So, I don’t want to shut them down in any way.”

Franco also addressed the previous misconduct claims on Late Night With Seth Meyers on Wednesday, January 10, just hours before the Times’ article was published. “I have my own side of this story, but I believe in these people that have been underrepresented getting their stories out enough that I will hold back things that I could say just because I believe in that much,” he said. “If I have to take a knock because I’m not going to try and actively refute things, then I will, because I believe in it that much.”

While speaking with HARDtalk’s Stephen Sackur, Judd, 49, praised Franco’s response and said, “I think that what James said is terrific. I think that we’ve all behaved, at a certain level, unconsciously, and done things that were insensitive, inappropriate, without necessarily understanding that they were. I mean, we’ve all operated with a certain amount of tone deafness, and I like the culpability, and we have to have restorative justice.”

“This is about men and women being all together and having a more equitable and just workplace, home life, social spaces. I mean, we know that when women are empowered in the workplace and are in decision-making positions that workplaces have better financial outcomes and there’s less harassment when there is more diversity,” the Kiss the Girls star continued, before adding, “And it takes that kind of individual accountability to collectively make the change on a large scale.”
