Ashley Judd's "deal" with Harvey Weinstein

In her first televised sit-down since she and more than 60 other women accused Harvey Weinstein of harassment, assault or rape, Ashley Judd opened up how she escaped his advances more than two decades ago. Judd spoke with ABC’s Diane Sawyer on Good Morning America.

Judd, 49, claimed she’d never heard about Weinstein’s alleged predatory behavior before agreeing to meet with him.

  • “I had no warning … I remember the lurch when I went to the desk and I said, ‘Mr. Weinstein, is he on the patio?’ and they said, ‘No, he’s in his room,'” she recalled. “I was like, ‘Ugh, are you kidding me?’ [But I went because] I had a business appointment. That’s his pattern of sexual predation. That’s how he rolled.”
  • “There’s this constant grooming negotiation going on,” she continued. “I thought ‘no’ meant ‘no,'” she said, adding that Weinstein offered her a massage. “I fought with this volley of ‘nos,’ which he ignored. Who knows? Maybe he heard them as ‘maybe,’ maybe he heard them as ‘yeses,’ maybe they turned him on. I don’t know.”
