Ashley Judd

Ashley Judd is an American actress, born April 19, 1968, in Granada Hills[?], California, USA. She graduated from the University of Kentucky[?] in 1990, majoring in French. Her mother and sister are country singers.

Her film debut was a small part in Kuffs (1992) and the first major role was in Ruby in Paradise (1993), a hit independent drama. She had a role in Oliver Stone's Natural Born Killers, but all the scenes she played in were cut from the final version of the film. She found further critical acclaim in Smoke (1995) and publicity in Heat (1995).

By the end of the 1990s she managed to achieve significant fame and success as a beautiful and talented actress. As a result she could play leading roles in films that were bound to be successful at the box office, but still required acting skills, like Double Jeopardy (1999) and Someone Like You (2001).
