Feeling trapped and facing a barrage of propositions years ago in Harvey Weinstein's hotel room, Ashley Judd says, she made a deal with the now-disgraced producer: She would say yes to his sexual advances after she won an Academy Award for one of his films.
He countered with after she was nominated for one. She held firm.
The actress found herself alone with Weinstein in his room for what she thought was going to be a business appointment, she told ABC's Diane Sawyer in a clip that aired Thursday on "Good Morning America." She hadn't been warned, she said, and had no idea of what he might do.

Rapper Eminem's camp prevailed Wednesday in a copyright dispute with a political party in New Zealand that used a version of his song "Lose Yourself" without permission in a 2014 election ad.
The lawsuit was brought by the song's publisher, Eight Mile Style, which according to the New Zealand Herald was awarded the equivalent of about $412,000 U.S. The court in Wellington, New Zealand's capital, deemed that sum to be the "hypothetical license fee" the party should have paid for the song in the first place, as well as damages and interest.
"This decision is a warning to soundalike music producers and their clients everywhere,” a Sydney, Australia-based attorney whose firm repped Eight Mile Style told the Associated Press. "It sets a major precedent in New Zealand and will be influential in Australia, the U.K. and elsewhere."
When Fats Domino sat at a piano and let loose, he did so with a flair that turned those 88 keys into 88 drums.
An original framer of the rock 'n' roll constitution whose way with rhythm was as singular as John Hancock's signature, Domino delivered melodies via vocal runs that explored desire, heartbreak and the allure of his New Orleans home.
The artist, who died early Tuesday at 89, documented life's emotional highs and lows while organized chaos swirled around him.
