Ashley Judd and husband separate
Ashley Judd and Dario Franchitti are separating after 11 years of marriage.
Ashley's spokeswoman confirmed a report from People magazine that the 44-year-old actress and 39-year-old Scottish racing driver are ending their marriage.
The star of such films as Double Jeopardy and Kiss The Girls said in a statement that the pair will "always be family" and will continue to "cherish their relationship based on love, integrity and respect".
Last year, Ashley starred in the ABC TV series Missing and attended the Democratic National Convention as a Tennessee delegate.
Dario has won the Indianapolis 500 race three times.
The couple wed in a private ceremony in Scotland in 2001.
