It’s no exaggeration to refer to Kerry Washington as Hollywood’s latest ‘it girl,’ and it seems like her talents are being recognized around every corner.
The Scandal actress has landed the cover of Elle Magazine’s June issue, and opens up about her recent success, the red carpet process, and what she would be doing if she wasn’t acting.
On her current success:
I’m the luckiest broad in Hollywood now. To be the lead actor on Scandal and to be in the highest-earning Tarantino movie- I don’t get to ask for more.
On preparing for the red carpet:
I found out I enjoy the process. All these people show up at my house, they all have kits, someone has dresses. And it’s like, Let’s have fun. It’s not all about me. We’re able to create stories on the red carpet.
On the career she initially thought she’d end up in:
I imagined I’d be a clinical psychologist, with a focus on how performance shapes identity. I’d figure out ways to use role-playing in the healing of people.
The issue officially hits stands on May 21, but you can check out the full spread and a behind-the-scenes look at the shoot below.
