Ashley Judd
has blasted the media for its "pointedly nasty, gendered, and
misogynistic" comments about her puffy face in recent weeks that set off
rumors of plastic surgery and facial injections.

In a piece on The Daily Beast, the Missing
star writes that the various reports on her appearance — which she says
was the result of steroid medication for a month-long cold — was an
"assault" on female body image. "The hypersexualization of girls and
women and subsequent degradation of our sexuality as we walk through the
decades, and the general incessant objectification is what this
conversation allegedly about my face is really about," she writes.

43, then outlines five "conclusions" that the media made about her
after seeing her face, including that she "clearly had work done," and
that she has gained weight and looks like a "cow" and a "pig" and
"'better watch out' because my husband 'is looking for his second

What angers Judd the most, however, is that the rumors
were mostly initiated by women, which she calls "a sad and disturbing
fact." "That women are joining in the ongoing disassembling of my
appearance is salient," she says, lamenting that she too sometimes has
commented on other women's looks.

    Seems some people have nothing better to do than criticize. They should look at themselves in the mirror at their bumps, crooked toes, cellulite or what ever else they hide under their clothes.. Ashley Judd you look wonderful....Go Ashley !!!!

    good for her. the way society jumps alllllllll over any chance to put down a beautiful women really hurts what little remaining faith in humanity that I have. its COMMON SENSE, people; when the aging process begins, not only is there often weight gain, but facial contours change as well. additionally, perimenopause could also be the culprit for the "puffiness"; these are facts, so why these people dont know this leaves me completely baffled. besides, ashley has some of the most beautiful skin I've ever seen, and is the LAST person that may need---or want, for that matter---- plastic surgery. and I'm not at allll surprised that this is coming from women----of the two genders, women are the ones that get off on seeing changes in beautiful women because they want to rejoice in what they think is diminishing attractiveness---its downright evil.
