Ashley Judd has remained mostly silent since her allegations of sexual harassment against Harvey Weinstein were reported last week, but on Sunday she took the time to thank some friends and supporters.

The story about decades of harassment by the movie mogul was published in the New York Times on Oct. 5, and featured claims by Judd that nearly 20 years ago Weinstein had her up to his hotel room, where he asked if he could give her a massage, and for her to watch him shower.
