Ashley Judd explains puffy face is due to medication, not plastic surgery

ashley-judd-before-after-getty.jpgSpeculation has swirled in recent days that something is awry with Ashley Judd, perhaps that she'd even undergone plastic surgery. This comes following recent appearances in which the "Missing" actress looked rather puffy. But it seems that there's a simple explanation for the matter.

Judd's publicist tells E!, "Ashley has been battling an ongoing, serious sinus infection and flu. Therefore, Ashley has been on a heavy dose of medication to overcome it so she could get on a plane and travel to Toronto and New York to fulfill her commitment of completing four consecutive days of press to promote her new show, 'Missing.'"

The actress offers more detail on Twitter. "Steriods [sic] are dramatic," she writes. "My clothes don't fit right."

And that appears to be the end of that.
