For Harvey Weinstein to tell that to Peter Jackson was to ensure that Ashley Judd would get no role in anything Peter Jackson was doing.

One of the realities of Acting, (although it is true in other professions) is that when you get a reputation of being difficult to work with, you don’t get much work if any.

Sometimes the reputation is earned. Sometimes some no body gets a role, especially in television and obtains a great deal of public attention.

In the 50s and 60s most actors avoided television as if it was beneath them. That is why, if you watch programs made in the 50s and 60s, you’ll see the same faces over and over again.

It isn’t the same today.

Unless an actor makes people like him/her, they don’t work often.

For example, Alex McLaughlin started in a Vampire serial which do to the writers strike in America ended early.

He then went into Hawaii 50 which began in 2010 and is still airing.

Jesse Spencer began on House in 2004 until 2012 and then went right in Chicago Fire in 2012 which is still airing.

There are others who appeared in Hawaii 50 and House which have disappeared. Whether they asked for more money or were ‘nightmares’ to work with, they have disappeared.

Which is why Ashley Judd’s statement is so serious.
