The actress also once opened up on how she does not believe in jumping from one man to the other because it is better to have just one and not give oneself out to every man who crosses her path.
In her words:
“I don’t believe in jumping from one man to the other. I’m a relationship kind of person. I believe in having someone, a man that you do this thing with, not giving it out to all men that cross your path at the same time. You do whatever that works for you. On relationship, I love relationship, it’s how I’m created. If a relationship doesn’t work out for you, you can decide to break up and get hooked again or give yourself a break. Relationship is not all about sex or emotional things. I love to have normal relationship with intellectual people, people I can learn from. So anything “relationship” with the right person is a welcome idea.”

Judy on her dislike for playing romantic roles
In her words:
“I’m not going nak*ed for any amount, and I hardly kiss in a movie. I will not do a kind of kissing where the guy would be fondling my Bosoms. I must not go nu*de to be a star. I shouldn’t do what my kids or family will see and be ashamed of. My limit is, I don’t do nu*de and I don’t do over romantic films.”
