The actresses, who both accused former producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment, met up on the red carpet at the 2018 Academy Awards and posed for photos.
Judd, 49, was one of the first actresses to speak out against Weinstein in October, alleging that he asked her to meet him in a hotel room where, dressed in a bathrobe, pushed her to give him a massage and watch him shower. Sorvino, 50, gave her account just a few days later, saying that Weinstein also brought her to his hotel room where he massaged her shoulders and tried to make further physical advances on her by chased her around the room.
Judd and Sorvino also say that Weinstein blacklisted them in the movie industry, which Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson, among others, confirmed.
A spokesperson for Weinstein has denied all allegations against him.
