Ashley Judd - Quotes
I have a responsibility to nurture and shepherd my talent and when I'm living the parts of my life not related to that I feel I have the right to be left alone.
Both my husband and I give a lot of ourselves in what we do because that is our public lives; but in my private life, I have an intrinsic right to be left alone.
A lot of people over the years have been doing yoga and I think even more these days are expressing an interest in it. So there are a lot of manifestations of spirituality here in town.
And it blew my mind when I started to get wind of the fact that they actually liked me being around. That was humbling, because Kentucky basketball is a big deal, and I am not the biggest fan - I am just the most notorious one.
And of course there's so much music in and around our family. I had a piano during Christmas because it's obviously useful through the season. There are so many people, songwriters, who are around.
And then all of a sudden, it was time for me to shoot the singing stuff and I just lacked confidence, so those were not my favorite days.
But I grew up with a vocal genius in my house. And then I married someone with a very elite, very different kind of gift.
Everything I've done has been personally fun, important, and meaningful to me.
I bake so much at home, so I try to eat junk every other day. It's kinda my thing.
I can't think of anything I want and need that I don't already have but at the same time, I'm not sated.
I did a lot of hiking and I loved it.
I enjoy other things too, but yoga is the fastest and most complete way to get fit, and there are so many beautiful instructors out there.
I get lonely when I'm a Playstation widow.
I have a lot of variety within me, and the dream role, I think, is actually a compilation of parts that express different aspects of my persona and personal interests.
I think that my peace of mind and my solitude are greatly enhanced by being at home.
I just think that you have to be very protective of your own world. The self can be very inundated and if you're porous, it can become problematic.
I think it's easy for me to connect to some people, and I don't know if that's the same thing as falling in love whereas before, I might have said it was.
I think that being perceptive and having interests is nothing but an asset.
It's funny, though, because when I first started going to races after we met, I was extremely nervous. It's like being backstage and hoping you don't trip over something or break an amp or accidentally speak into a live microphone, so I was really hesitant.
My house is the destination in our family. We still do some things in Mom and Pop's kitchen but overwhelmingly at my house.
I've been devoted to Alison Krauss for many, many years.
Regardless, we are a two career household, and it's Dario's season, and I'm really excited about going racing.
Ruby in Paradise and the intensity and quality that I was able to experience on Smoke were equally as important to me as working on this movie every day for three-and-a-half months.
