“I have professional integrity”
Kiss the Girls star Ashley Judd on Monday, April 30, announced she was taking legal action against disgraced film producer Harvey Weinstein, alleging that he tried to ruin his career spreading lies about her after she didn’t accept the sexual requests.
For every woman and man who smiles at me...who thanks me...who says they support me...who says “good for you”....who says “my daughter looks up to you”...who gives me encouragement...who prays for me...who says “I’m with you”....who says #metoo...who share their stories...who shakes my hand...who wants to hug me...This smile’s for you. In a way, it’s very lonely what I am doing, but you make me know I am not alone in doing it. #thankyou @timesupnow

The lawsuit against Harvey on Monday refers to the recent claim that the director succeeded in dissuading Peter Jackson, director, a producer of The Lord of the Rings films after she said no to his sexual offers.
Earlier this year’s Jackson revealed that Harvey pitched his initial plans for both Lord of the Ring and Hobbit to Miramax after he warned star Judd and Mira Sorvino were difficult to work with.
Jackson told to Stuff publication “I recall Miramax telling us they were a nightmare to work with and we should avoid them at all cost. This was probably in 1998.”
"I lost career opportunity. I lost money. I lost status and prestige and power in my career as a direct result of having been sexually harassed and rebuffing the sexual harassment," Ashley Judd tells @ABC's @arobach as she sues Harvey Weinstein. https://t.co/TR9TGAPpxC pic.twitter.com/tQJ9IB8xfX

He added, at that time he was unaware of what they were talking but today he knew that it was “the Miramax smear campaign in full swing.” Acknowledging the truth now Jackson believes he was fed false information about both talented actresses who he removed from the casting list.
A representative for Harvey told the investigation will pull the curtains of the fact that Mr. Weinstein is neither defamed or have he become an obstacle in Judd career.
Besides it, Weinstein has been accused by more than 60 women that he has sexually assaulted them.
