LOUISVILLE, Ky (WHAS11) -- On the heels of her serious and substantive appearance at George Washington University on Friday, actress Ashley Judd's nude movie scenes are now the buzz as Kentucky waits to hear whether she will run for U.S. Senate.
The Courier-Journal's Joe Gerth has a column that wonders whether Judd's "Hollywood exposure" will hurt her political chances.
And, the conservative website The Daily Caller observes the "potential U.S. Senate candidate sure has done a lot of on-screen nudity."
USA Today's Martha T. Moore, meanwhile, focuses on the celebrity factor in Judd's poltical future, with insight from basketball star turned senator Bill Bradley and Mary Bono Mack, who succeeded her late husband, singer Sonny Bono, in Congress.
Bono said Judd "is always playing great strong female characters. She's schooled herself on what she's going to be in for and is known for being very bright — and I think Sen. McConnell could have a fight on his hands."
"The advantage of being well-known was that when I started to run, it meant that very few people hated me, even if they couldn't support me," Bradley added in the USA Today article.
In Judd's case, some film appearances have left little to the imagination.
