"I feel like 'Ashley Judd fights back' is also the way you could describe the plot of 97% of the movies on Ashley Judd’s IMDB page."

Ashley Judd (born Ashley Tyler Ciminella, April 19, 1968) is an American actress and political activist.

She grew up in a family of successful performing artists as the daughter of country music singer Naomi Judd and the sister of Wynonna Judd. While she is best known for an ongoing acting career spanning more than two decades, she has increasingly become involved in global humanitarian efforts and political activism.

She's related to both members of The Judds (Naomi is her mother, and Wynonna is her younger sister).

Filmography:


Tropes relating to her work:

  • Action Girl: Commonly cast as such.
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl/Fiery Redhead: She has auburn hair, and her characters are usually "cut-the-crap/no-nonsense" Plucky Girls.
  • Granola Girl: She's a social and environmental activist and was a vegetarian for many years.
  • Interplay of Sex and Violence: Most of her movies contain either profanity, nudity, sex or violence. This came to a point that her mother, Naomi Judd, has publicly objected to many of it.

  • Irony as She Is Cast: She plays a lot of mothers but doesn't have any kids in real life and has even said she thinks it's irresponsible to have children when there are already so many without families.
  • Mama Bear: Her most recent roles.
  • Naked People Trapped Outside: She likes being "in a cathedral of trees and the sanctuary of canyons." Judd's love of nature led her to be locked out of her cabin at the Ahwahnee hotel in Yosemite without her clothes. Judd leaned outside her door trying to get her yoga mat when the door slammed behind her. She covered herself up with her yoga mat and went to the lobby to get a new key. It was only later that she realized that not only was she naked, her face had been covered in pimple cream.
  • Shameless Fanservice Girl:
    • At the 70th Academy Awards, she walked on stage in a white dress with a high front slit and no panties and was briefly exposed on camera.
    • She once flashed her breasts at the Paparazzi while in a car with Salma Hayek, and afterwards she seemed to be saying, "What's the big deal?" and Salma had her hand over her mouth in shock and appeared to be thinking, "Oh my God, you're crazy, I can't take you anywhere."
  • Those Two Actors: She and Morgan Freeman starred in quite a few films together.
  • Two First Names: It's only her Stage Name though.
  • What Could Have Been: Peter Jackson revealed in 2017 that she was in talks to play Arwen or Galadriel in The Lord of the Rings and met with Peter Jackson about it, even looking over costumes and discussing which role she'd like to play, but she was dropped when Harvey Weinstein had smeared her and Mira Sorvino, two of the many actresses he was accused of sexually harassing, to Jackson by saying they were difficult to work with, something which other actresses and victims have said happened to them as well on other projects.
    • She was originally cast in Home Improvement as the announcer for "Tool Time", which eventually became Lisa played by Pamela Anderson. The role was supposed to be much larger, with her as Tim's female presence at work. Her agents had her back out, feeling she was destined for a film career.
