March 23 (UPI) -- Ashley Judd opened up about her relationship with retired race car driver Dario Franchitti in the latest issue of Ladies Home Journal.

“He’ll always be my loved one," the 45-year-old actress said of her estranged husband. "Even before our wedding we agreed not to tell people about our relationship, but to show them instead."

Judd and Franchitti announced their separation in January of last year, but seemed to reconnect when Franchitti sustained serious injuries during a race last October.

"Thank you for the prayers for @dariofranchitti I have only clothes on my back & the dogs but that's all that we need & we are on our way," Judd tweeted immediately after the accident.

"What we’re showing them now is we’re human, we’re family and this is what family looks like," Judd added.

Judd stars in Divergent, based on Veronica Roth's YA novel about teenagers living in dystopian Chicago, as Shailene Woodley's mother.

“It’s based on the teen books about a society that divides humanity into factions," Judd said of the film. "I play a woman who doesn’t fit with the group she was born into. The film is really about the greatest fundamental human longing, which is to belong. But it’s also about that opposing desire to be an individual. That’s a profound tension I can certainly relate to."
