Ashley Judd sat down with Diane Sawyer on Good Morning America Thursday morning for her first televised interview since the the New York Times published its explosive report on Harvey Weinstein, blowing open decades of sexual harassment and assault allegations. Judd, who was one of the women who went on record with the Times, told Sawyer that if she had a magic wand, she wishes she could go back in time to try to prevent what happened to her from happening to countless other women.
“I don’t know that I would have been believed,” she admitted. “And who was I to tell? I knew it was disgusting. Like, was I going to tell the concierge who sent me up to the room?” When confronted with old photos of a Vanity Fair Oscar party that were given to GMA by Weinstein, in which the two can be seen holding hands, Judd exclaimed, “Ick!” She continued, “I hoped I wouldn’t pass him, but I did and he obviously grabbed my hand. It’s like, the look on my face is abject terror, like I can see it in my eyes.”
