Ashley Madison Myrick is a former American actress. She rose to fame after her relationship with the award-winning actor James Woods was made public. Born in the world of glamour and entertainment, Ashley decided to pursue acting as a career after dating Woods. When she was just 19 years old, she began her journey by starring in the movie ‘The Indie Pendent’ and later in ‘Buckaroo: The Movie’. Soon, she received bigger roles in hit series such as ‘Shark’ and ‘Entourage’. These roles gave her the much-needed push; however, Madison’s career declined drastically afterward, and she appeared only in minor roles for the rest of life. Her other projects included the movies ‘Lost Dream’, ‘Miss March’, and ‘Pretty Cool Too’. Her relationship with Woods became her most famous claim to fame, but the couple split up after dating for seven years. Since then, Madison has been in the news after a dating website of the same name took off and she sued them. After winning the suit, she retired from her career as an actress and moved to Orlando. She currently works as a real-estate investor and a businesswoman.

Career
  • Ashley Madison’s interest in becoming an actress was supported by her then-boyfriend James Woods, and he successfully helped her navigate the rocky paths of entertainment industry in the beginning. She made her on-screen debut in 2005 with the comedy action movie ‘The Indie Pendent’. The movie also starred Nick Ernst, Rusty Meyers, and Joy Highsmith and was directed by Kelly Schwarze. However, it performed poorly at the box office and received low ratings. In the same year, Madison starred in the Western ‘Buckaroo: The Movie’ alongside Kelly Aleccia, Rex Allen Jr., and Amy Austin. Directed by James A. Brooks, the movie was a slow hit and Madison received her share of publicity for her role as Jenny.
  • In 2006, she received her first recurring role as Brittany Forest in the crime drama series ‘Shark’. She appeared in the episodes titled ‘Dial M for Monica’ in 2006 and ‘Blind Trust’ in 2007. The series was a popular affair, and her off-screen chemistry with the lead James Woods only added to the spark. She also starred as Tiffany in the ‘Aquamom’ episode of the popular comedy drama ‘Entourage’. Her role in ‘Entourage’ turned out to be the biggest hit of her career, and she continues to be associated with it.
  • Despite a steady and strong start, Madison’s lack of consistency put a dent in her work. She wasn’t offered many roles and her on-screen appearances dwindled. For the rest of her career, she ended up starring only in minor or supporting roles. In 2007, she appeared as the sexy jogger in the movie ‘Pretty Cool Too’. In 2009, she was seen in two films ‘Miss March’ and ‘Lost Dream’. She played minor roles in both these movies. Her last credited role on the big screen was in the comedy TV series ‘This Indie Thing’ in 2011. She appeared as the rejection girl in the episode titled ‘Winners and Losers.’ Since then, Ashley has steered away from acting and has stayed off the grid. In an interview with TMZ magazine, it was revealed that Ashley has since moved to Orlando and currently works as a real-estate investor and businesswoman.
