Ashley Judd Talks Beauty Secrets, Spirituality and Why She'll Never Go Blonde
By Emily Taylor, Editorial Assistant |
Ashley Judd is known for many things: for fearlessly being the first woman to go on the record against Harvey Weinstein, for a film career that spans more than three decades and boasts such jewels as Double Jeopardy, Kiss the Girls and Ruby in Paradise, and for being an outspoken political activist.
What might be lesser known is Judd's love of natural beauty and embrace of give-back brands like Hope Fragrances, a scent-only company that offers three floral fragrances and donates 100% of net profits to the Hope for Depression Research Foundation.
We scored a few minutes of Judd's precious time to chat Hope, her morning routine and why she's a life-long brunette.
