Ashley, 49, said: 'Well first of all, my first audition yielded a screen test and I was asked to take my shirt off.'
She continued: 'It was between another woman and me, and I said that isn't about out acting, that's about evaluating a pair of breasts.
Adding: 'And the answer was not "no" but "h**l no."

Ashley didn’t specify whether or not the alleged incident involved Weinstein or for which film role.
The movie star, who is a vocal supporter of the Time's Up movement, also spoke out about the cost of her battle against sexual harassment: 'I have to know the hill on which I'm willing to die,' she said, according to People.
Ashley said on stage on the panel that 'the hill on which I'm willing to die is equality, and if that means going to jail, being maligned, being defamed, having economic loss because I stood up to Harvey Weinstein - and it's incalculable the amount of money I could have made that I didn't - that's the hill on which I'm willing to die.'
The actress accused Harvey of alleged sexual assault in a October in a New York Times story; she said that the assault happened 20 years ago when she filmed the movie Kiss The Girls, according to Ashley.
Since she spoke out about Harvey, more than 50 women have revealed similar experiences with the former producer.
