Though Double Jeopardy, which co-starred Tommy Lee Jones, got terrible reviews, it stayed atop the box office for a number of weeks and grossed a total of $116 million.
Though both of her next efforts -- the thriller Eye of the Beholder (2000) and the sentimental Where the Heart Is (2000) -- were greeted with far less than an enthusiastic reception, Judd's star is continued to rise. In 2001, she starred in Someone Like You,
a romantic comedy for which she reportedly received a career-high salary of $4 million. She has also starred in such films as The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood (2002), and Bug (2006).
In fall 2003, she made her Broadway debut as Maggie in a revival of Tennessee Williams' Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.
Judd lives on a 100-year-old farm in Tennessee, close to both Naomi and Wynonna. In addition to McConaughey, she has also been romantically linked to De Niro and the pop singer Michael Bolton. In April 2000, Judd announced her engagement to Dario Franchitti, a Scottish race car driver. The couple married in Scotland in December 2001.
