Early years

Her early years were without the comforts of what can be considered the bare necessities, such as running water, electricity, or a telephone. [1] (http://www.askmen.com/women/actress/7_ashley_judd.html)

She attended 12 schools in 13 years before college. She graduated with honors in 1990 from the University of Kentucky.

Actress

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).

Her television appearances include the role of Lieutenant Robin Lefler, a Starfleet officer on an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

By the end of the 1990s she managed to achieve significant fame and success as an actress. As a respected actor, she began to be offered 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).

Personal life

Whenever her schedule allows, she regularly attends UK basketball games, frequently sitting next to Donna Smith (wife of UK Coach Tubby Smith), or in the student section. She allowed her alma mater to release a calendar of her photos to help raise money for the sports programs. She is frequently sought out for celebrity camera shots during televised games (much like Jack Nicholson with the Los Angeles Lakers or Spike Lee with the New York Knicks).

She is married to Scottish Indy Racing League driver Dario Franchitti.
