Ashley Judd: "I Thought That I Admired Charlies Rose, Until I Had A Personal Experience With Him"

Posted: Updated:

LEXINGTON, Ky (LEX 18) Matt Jones, the host of 'Hey Kentucky' interviewed former Kentuckian Ashley Judd after she, along with others, was named Time Magazine's 'Person of the Year' after the #MeToo movement for victims of sexual harassment.

Judd came forward about an incident that took place inside of a California hotel room when she was younger. It was there that the actress says she was harassed by movie mogul Harvey Weinstein. She said that it was there that both her life, and her life's purpose, changed forever. 

"This has allowed everyone to come forward and say literally, as we know, 'me too'," she told 'Hey Kentucky' host Matt Jones.

In the interview, which aired on LEX 18 Wednesday night, Matt Jones asked Judd how the public should look at people who have done really positive things but have also been accused of sexual harassment. During the interview, Jones mentioned that he once had a lot of respect for journalist Charlies Rose and Senator Al Franken.

In response, Judd said, "Good people do bad things and bad people do good things. There's a little bit of good in the worst of us and there's a little bit of the reverse of that. I think that it is important to remember that it is not about sex, that it's about power, and that our society and culture teaches that men have an entitlement to girl's and women's bodies, and that there is a chronic objectification of girls and women and so that facilitates, otherwise, good, decent, productive men who are contributing to society in doing things that are inappropriate with girls and women."

She states, 'it's coming out that the folks at NBC and his colleagues all knew about Matt Lauer's behavior.' Saying that there are 'huge systems of enabling going on'.

It is then that Judd told Matt Jones, "Also, I thought that I admired Charlie Rose until I had a personal experience with him."

Jones asked Judd if her experience with Rose was 'similar to what we've heard?'

Judd responded, "absolutely, yeah." 

"And then I also attended the Charlie Rose Weekend, which is a think tank convening, that he organizes every summer in Aspen and you know, it's super highfalutin, and they get all these great thinkers in there, the Saudi foreign minister and the former president of Mexico and blah, blah, blah, and when I went the summer before last, there were quite a few panels, I would say, you know, twelve panels, and there were only two female participants on all of those panels. And there were no shortage of qualified women to be on those panels, I know because I provided the names, because I noticed there weren't female participants, and then somehow or another my invitation to the next Charlie Rose Weekend got lost in the mail."

The episode that aired Wednesday was just the first part of Matt's interview with Ashley Judd. On Monday, December 11, 'Hey Kentucky' will show more of their interview with her.
