Kerry Washington Covers 'Women's Health' December 2012

Kerry Washington Covers 'Women's Health' December 2012

Kerry Washington shows off her gorgeous figure on the cover of Women’s Health magazine’s December 2012 issue.

Here’s what the 35-year-old Django Unchained actress had to share with the mag:

On prepping for Django Unchained: “One of the things that I really love most about my job is the research part of it….So, I studied a lot. It’s kind of hard to articulate the level of preparation that we all had to do for this film because so much of it was emotional and psychological preparation. It’s hard to talk about because we all had to go into a part of American history that is so dark and complicated and fraught with the past sins of this country.”

On what she’d be doing if she wasn’t an actress:
“If I wasn’t an actress, I would probably be a teacher. Either an elementary school teacher or a yoga teacher. Both of which I did when I was living in New York pursuing a career in acting. I liked doing both of those things very much. I think it would surprise people to know that what I really wanted to do as a child was to be the woman in the Shamu show at Sea World. And the big joke in my family is that I started taking Marine Biology and I was like, forget the whale, I’ll just be on stage by myself.”

On her go to snacks:
“I am not a vegan, but I like vegan protein shakes. I mix them with coconut water instead of regular water. That’s my secret to having them taste better. I love popcorn. I could live on popcorn. The writers of Scandal have made my character Olivia Pope have a similar relationship with popcorn. But I don’t mind because I get to eat popcorn at work.”

    Yay, Kerry looks great

  • Kirsten

    @DarkieInvader:
    WTF? There are some disgustingly rude/twisted people on this site lately. She looks great.

  • AMY

    @Yiddle: You’re a pig, what year is this? Go going the Klan you animal.

  • Tina

    She is just so incredibly beautiful! Those features are amazing. Great actress too :)

  • AMY

    @AMY:
    Whoops, I mean go join the klan, you animal.

  • janie

    she has a really big head lol

  • LooseLipz

    Sadly, she has admitted to having eating disorders and it’s obvious she is still suffering…she’s far thinner than she was not too long ago and at this weight her head and lips look too big…
    She’s falling into the bobble head territory…shame…

  • A

    She’s beautiful, ignore the jealous haters.

  • aly

    She’s gorgeous

  • Rebecca

    She either has a big head or the photo chopped the picture wrong. It certainly looks odd.

  • sea

    Women’s Health? I see a super photoshopped plastic woman in these pictures.

  • DB

    I wish women did not have to appear nearly nude on covers of magazines to get attention.

    Their acting ability should be able to represent who and what they are without having to resort to such measures.

  • Leon

    Anyone can be “gorgeous” with all of that airbrushing. You people need to get into reality.

  • Peapo

    Yiddle and Darkievader, I have flagged you and reported you. I ask the rest of you to do the same. Arguing with these haters will only make them post more. Let’s get rid of them.

  • Emma

    She’s absolutely beautiful. Easily one of the most stunning women in Hollywood.

  • joey

    shes been sexy to me ever since i saw “SHE HATE ME”, her and dania ramirez had a great sex scene together

  • G

    she lost so much weight since save the last dance, i mean its been approximately 12 yrs since, but still, its weird

  • Cate

    Great to see Kerry get a cover! She is a talented, beautiful and classy actress

  • o

    she looks great? she looks anorexic. you people are twisted

  • retrobanana

    id love to know how much she weighs..she looks super skinny now……i like her and i find her really pretty but she has lost a lot of weight i think she is trying to keep up with ultra thin zoe saldana…so thats the new thing…since halle berry is getting old…we’re getting anarexic black girls…one thing about halle she was just soo beautiful she didnt have to starve she was perfect zoe and kerry will never live up to her.

  • retrobanana

    i actually think they photoshopped her bigger

  • Sienna

    Kerry (and Halle Berry) have the most beautiful cheeks in HW! Just perfect :)

  • No Bull

    Why are they saying such mean things about her? I see inflated lips, cheeks and the fakest of tans on tons of women but no body implies they’re a monkey because of it.

  • kate

    some of you ppl are so stupid and have such double standards!! i love how everybody can easily call kerry a bobble head, but no one says anything about anjie whose frickin bones i see popping out of her knees (literally). Until i see someone mention tht keep you mouth shut & dont type bulls***.

  • see

    OMG
    When photoshopping a picture and replacing the head, MUST REMEMBER TO RESIZE THE HEAD!
    FFS!

  • Michele

    @janie:
    her head is HUGE. That was the first thing I noticed. Either the editor for the cover did a VERY sh!tty job or this chick is a bobble head anorexic who seriously needs help.
    I’m vegan and very healthy…….this is NOT healthy. She really looks like someone Photoshopped her head and made it too close to the front or way too large for her frame.
    This is BAD inspiration for young teens to see on fronts of magazines while strolling thru the stores.
