Ashley Judd is going to cash in on her misfortune. The time is ripe, while everyone is hyper focused on sexual harassment, she’s sure to make the big bucks.
PageSix.com has the story:
Ashley Judd has been pitching publishers an outline for a book that will talk frankly about the sexual assaults she suffered at the hands of Harvey Weinstein and others from the time she was in second grade.
The new manuscript has sparked a bidding war, and insiders say she could get an advance of more than $1 million.
Barnes And Noble presents this overview of the book:
In this biography, which examines Ashley’s life from birth to her appearance at the 2012 Democratic National Convention, author and journalist James L. Dickerson recounts her difficult childhood in Kentucky and California, her sometimes troubled relationships with her mother and sister, her big-screen breakthrough in the 1993 movie “Ruby in Paradise,” her ongoing series of starring roles, her life-long struggle with depression, and her marriage.
Is there really that much interest in the details of Ashley Judd’s past? Is the relationship with her mother and sister, that riveting? And does the timing of a book like this sound a little opportunistic?
