Ash­ley a role model for ex­pos­ing sleazy Hol­ly­wood mogul

The Irish Mail on Sunday - - COMMENT -

IF the cast­ing couch is ever out­lawed in Hol­ly­wood – now there’s a thought – we can thank ash­ley Judd, right. She is the first high-pro­file ac­tress to go pub­lic about it.

Judd claims that as an up-and-com­ing ac­tress she was cornered by movie mogul Har­vey we­in­stein in his ho­tel room and asked to give him a mas­sage and watch him take a shower. Talk about an of­fer you could refuse...

Be­neath its glit­ter­ing im­age, Hol­ly­wood is a by­word for degra­da­tion and sleaze.

It took guts for Judd to show how am­bi­tious young ac­tresses and ac­tors are sex­u­ally ha­rassed by in­dus­try power play­ers. She should take a bow.
