Ashley Judd and Dario Franchitti Ending Marriage

By Nottage and Ward on February 13, 2013

Actress Ashley Judd and three-time Indy 500 champion Dario Franchitti are ending their marriage of more than eleven years. According to a January 29, 2013, statement issued by the couple and published on People.com, although they have made the mutual decision to end the marriage, they plan to continue to remain family, cherishing their relationship based on respect, integrity, and the special love that they have enjoyed.

The marriage between Franchitti and Judd began with a private ceremony in Scotland in 2001. A spokeswoman for Ashley Judd confirmed the People magazine report.

Judd starred in films like “Kiss the Girls” and “Double Jeopardy.” Just last year Judd starred in the ABC series Missing. She recently earned a degree from Harvard and has expressed interest in politics. She is a 44-year-old Kentucky native and Tennessee resident and attended the Democratic National Convention as a Tennessee delegate. Dario, 39, is a native of Scotland.

In a statement to the Louisville Courier-Journal, Judd would not rule out a possible political run against republican U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell in 2014. She has been vocal on various political issues and is rumored to be considering running.

Franchitti was the winner of four straight Indy Car Series titles, 2007-2011. Judd was present in 2007 when he won his first Indy 500.

This is the second recent separation of a high profile racing couple. Former Indy Car driver and current NASCAR competitor Danica Patrick announced in November that she and husband Paul Hospenthal were divorcing after having been married seven years.
