A perpetual participant in the Delta 99 Most Desirable Women reaching as high as #11 in 2005. She also took home a Delta's Choice Award in 2004
for Dancing In her Underwear in the movie "Someone Like You". Ashley Judd is an at least 8th generation Eastern Kentuckian. She currently resides
on a farm in rural middle Tennessee and maintains close kinship and cultural ties with Appalachia. The daughter of country singer Naomi Judd and the
younger half-sister of singer Wynonna Judd. Her parents divorced in 1972, and her mother struggled to raise two girls on her nurse's salary. The girls
wore second-hand clothes, and the family moved often. They occasionally lived without electricity or indoor plumbing in remote, poverty-stricken areas
of Kentucky. When Judd was a teenager, her mother and sister's country music duet, The Judds, became popular and successful, and suddenly the
Judd family was rich. Ashley didn't sing, though, so she moved in with her father during the school year, and only accompanied her mother and sister
on tour during summers.

Judd wore braces as a child and had acne as a teen, but she was gorgeous enough to be a cheerleader in high school. She majored in French in
college, but after graduation, she moved to Hollywood, deciding to be an actress. She was quickly hired to play a junior member of the Enterprise
engineering staff on Star Trek: The Next Generation. She appeared in two episodes, briefly sparking with Ensign Wesley Crusher (Wil Wheaton) as
they saved the ship's crew from an addictive computer game. After that she appeared on the sitcom Sisters for several years, playing Swoosie Kurtz's
spoiled daughter.

Her first movie role was as "wife of paint store owner" in 1992's Kuffs. She was originally offered a bigger role, but turned it down when she was told it
involved a topless scene. She starred in 1993's Ruby in Paradise, winning critical raves. Her better films include Heat, Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya
Sisterhood, and De-Lovely, though she has also appeared in a number of lowball thrillers like Kiss the Girls and High Crimes.

In 2004, during a stay at the Ahwahnee hotel in Yosemite, Judd accidentally locked herself out of her cabin without her clothes, and with her face
covered in pimple cream. She wrapped herself in a yoga mat and went to the lobby to get a new key.
