Ashley Judd has a pretty surprising message to Harvey Weinstein after he allegedly sexually harassed her decades ago … “I love you.”

Judd sat down with Diane Sawyer to recount her story of Weinstein inviting her to his hotel room for a business meeting, and then cornered her.

However, even though she is clearly disgusted with Weinstein, she says if given the chance to speak with him she would say “I love you and I understand that you are sick and suffering, and there’s help for a guy like you too … and it’s entirely up to you to get that help.”

She does say, however, that if “he is a rapist, he should go to jail.”

Judd also discusses a photo of her and Weinstein taken in 1997 … she claims he grabbed her hand while passing by and she was terrified while pretending to smile.
