Here's what's happening today in pop culture:

• Ashley Judd dissects the media and Internet speculation over her "puffy" look -- arguing (quite successfully) that "the conversation was pointedly nasty, gendered, and misogynistic and embodies what all girls and women in our culture, to a greater or lesser degree, endure every day, in ways both outrageous and subtle."

• If you've been waiting to see the movie version of Orson Scott Card's "Ender's Game," be prepared to wait longer -- as the movie's release date has been moved from March 2013 to November 2013. [Collider, via Vulture]

• "The Lion King" has broken the record for the most money earned on Broadway, which in its 15-year run has surpassed the $853.1 million earned by "The Phantom of the Opera." [The Hollywood Reporter]
