Ashley Judd: Growing Up Tragic Country Song
Ashley Judd seems like she has it all: gorgeous looks, a successful Hollywood career and a happy marriage.
According to a story by Aliyah Sahid at nydailynews.com, in a shocking new memoir, the actress reveals her troubled childhood, which was riddled with neglect, sexual abuse and thoughts of suicide.
In "All That is Bitter & Sweet," the actress recounts how her mother, country legend Naomi Judd and singer sister Wynonna traveled around the nation to try to make a name for themselves, leaving the young girl to feel "like an outsider."
After her father moved out, Judd, now 42, said her mother started a relationship with a man she described as an "abusive full-blown heroin addict with a criminal record," according to Radar Online, which obtained a copy of the book.
