Ashley Judd has revealed that she has been trolled as a result of a latest weight acquire.
The actor, 54, mentioned the burden acquire got here after her mom’s loss of life earlier this yr and a leg fracture this summer time.
Judd’s leg fracture occurred lower than two years after the actor shattered her leg in 4 locations throughout a mountaineering tour within the Democratic Republic of Congo in February 2021.
“I’ve put on some weight and I’m sure people are talking about it but I don’t pay any attention to it because I know it’s a temporary condition and the weight will come off when it’s supposed to,” Judd informed UCLA professor Dr. Jonathan Flint as a part of an Open Mind lecture on Wednesday (26 October) as per The Hollywood Reporter.
“It’s none of my business what people think of me,” she added.
“I have a healthy boundary about it but I also know that misogyny is a real thing in our culture. You try being a once ultra-fit woman who’s 54 and put on some weight. That is going to spark some very sexist conversations by both men and women and others in our culture.”
Elsewhere within the dialogue, which was placed on by the Friends of the Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior at UCLA, Judd defined that her most up-to-date leg fracture was as a result of “clumsiness”.
“It was what it was. Clumsiness is associated with grief, and there were other people in our family, after mom died, who fell down stairs and had accidents, and that’s just what mine happened to look like,” Judd defined.
“It really allowed me to grieve. It really allowed me to stop what I was working on at that moment and to grieve.”
Judd’s mom, Naomi, died on 30 April this yr and Judd later revealed that it was she who found her mom’s physique.
“The day that my beloved mother died by suicide, I had so many people to call. There were five women who were with me within moments of my sharing that tragic news with them, and they are my chosen sisters,” Judd informed Flint.
Judd’s sister, Wynonna, cleared up rumours of a rift between the pair earlier this week, telling NBC’s Today program that the sisters are “closer then they’ve been in a long time”.
She added: “We love each other and we show up for each other. We don’t agree on much but we support one another.”
