The couple were divorced in 2013.
The actress complains after inappropriate exchange with a male member of staff.
We might be living in a modern world where bigotry of all kinds is hugely frowned upon, but you'd be amazed at the kind of casually sexist attitudes women have to experience in their day-to-day lives. Ashley Judd has called out one such occasion after visiting an airport recently.

A sharp improvement on the original, this second entry in The Divergent Series has a much stronger sense of its premise and characters, which makes it much more exciting to watch. Where Divergent felt gimmicky and a bit shallow, this chapter pushes the characters much deeper, giving the actors a chance to bring them more engagingly to life, which makes the odd set-up more involving as well.
It picks up immediately where the first film ended, with Tris (Shailene Woodley) escaping from post-apocalyptic, segmented-society Chicago with her boyfriend Four (Theo James), her brother Caleb (Ansel Elgort) and their shifty cohort Peter (Miles Teller). Hiding out in the Amity agricultural community, they know that Erudite leader Janine (Kate Winslet) has sent her goons (Jai Courtney and Mekhi Phifer) to find them. Actually, she needs a divergent to open an artefact from the pre-war days so she can rid Chicago of pesky divergents forever. When their location is discovered, Tris and pals head back into the city, teaming up with factionless leader Joanna (Naomi Watts) and getting help from the head of Candor (Daniel Dae Kim) before going to Erudite to face Janine.
The story has a strong push to it, driving these rebels ever closer to a confrontation with their nasty nemesis, and their journey is fraught with surprise wrinkles, vicious battles and some mind-bending imagery. In fact, there are so many dreams, flashbacks and computer simulations that it's not always clear if what's on screen is actually happening or not. But it all looks so cool that we hang on to discover where it'll go next, so the two hours passes briskly, and sometimes breathlessly. The film looks terrific, as director Robert Schwentke keeps the focus on the characters while creating some amazing effects around them, especially in the simulation sequences.

The 'Insurgent' actress received a barrage of abuse after tweeting during a basketball game over the weekend, as has vowed to seek legal redress against those responsible.
Ashley Judd has declared war on Twitter trolls by vowing to press charges against those who recently subjected her to a barrage of abuse over a basketball game.

Ashley Judd - A host of stars were photographed as they attended the premiere of 'The Divergent Series: Insurgent' which was held at the Ziegfeld Theatre in New York City, New York, United States - Monday 16th March 2015
Watch the emotional trailer below
Don’t expect anything new from the trailer for Dolphin Tale 2, but expect some heart-warming music, cute kids crying about animals, proud and determined parents and – of course – some plucky dolphins surviving against all odds. This family adventure is back for another round of dolphin tales, which are – again – based on a true story.
Winter the dolphin had his life-saved by Dr. Cameron McCarthy (Morgan Freeman) back in 2011. But now his elderly surrogate mother Panama has passed away, the determined non-fish needs a companion in order to comply with USDA regulations.
'Dolphin Tale' saw Sawyer Nelson and Dr. Clay Haskett save the life of a beached dolphin named Winter who was so badly injured, she needed a special prosthetic fin fitted in order to survive. She was thus housed in the Clearwater Marine Hospital with a motherly dolphin named Panama. However, following Panama's tragic passing, Winter's future could look very lonely indeed unless the staff at the hospital can find her a new friend to share her life with; an action that is stringently required lest she is moved to another aquarium. That's where Hope comes in; an incredibly tiny dolphin who the Clearwater staff have shipped over to join Winter. The question is, is Winter's heartbreak over Panama's death too much to deal with in spite of new company?

Teens tackle yet another dystopian future in this well-made but derivative franchise-launcher. Filmmaker Neil Burger is more interested in whizzy visuals and a thorny plot to pay much attention to the characters or larger underlying themes, which leaves the film feeling eerily superficial. So while the film is relatively entertaining, it ultimately feels rather pointless.
The story's set after a war has reduced Chicago to a walled-in enclave of people divided into five stabilising factions: charitable Abnegation, peaceful Amity, honest Candor, defending Dauntless and brainy Erudite. Tris (Shailene Woodley) was born to parents (Ashley Judd and Tony Goldwyn) who are leaders in Abnegation, but when time comes for her to select her own path she discovers that she's Divergent, a cross-faction state that threatens those in power. So she chooses to join Dauntless, entering intense physical training under the tutelage of sexy hunk Four (Theo James) and harsh hunk Eric (Jai Courtney). then Dauntless' soldiers get caught up in a power struggle as Erudite leader Jeanine (Kate Winslet) plots to take governmental responsibilities from Abnegation.
All of this scene-setting takes about half of the film's running time, and it's frankly not very exciting. Burger makes sure it looks fantastic, with seamless visual effects, impressive stunt work and flashy action sequences, but the character drama takes longer to kick off. And there's also the problem that it essentially feels like a cross between The Hunger Games and Harry Potter as an unusually gifted teen takes on a controlling society.

Shailene Woodley and Kate Winslet stole the show at the 'Divergent' premiere, but which other stars were dressed to impress?
With a cast like that of new blockbuster Divergent it’s not a surprise that the movie’s premiere was packed with stylish stars. The red carpet was swarming with a wealth of designer ensembles, and that’s just from the men! We’ve have a root through all of the fabulous outfits from the evening and picked out the looks that we love the most.
We're in love with Kate's Safiyaa London gown
Kate Winslet may have given birth to her baby boy just three months ago, but you’d never have been able to tell, so fabulous did she look in her floor length red Safiyaa London gown. Bear Blaze has got one yummy mummy, that’s for sure! Kate completed her look with two totally on trend accessories, a metallic gold clutch bag and gold cuff bracelet. This girl knows how to red carpet (she does have a fair bit of experience at it!).
