Kerry Washington Covers 'Uptown' January 2013!

Kerry Washington Covers 'Uptown' January 2013!

Kerry Washington strikes a pose on the cover of Uptown magazine’s January 2013 issue.

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

On choosing her movie roles: “If I were to say it’s okay to play a lawyer but not a maid, or it’s okay to play a professor but not a slave, that would be sort of spitting on the legacy of my grandmother, who was a maid on Park Avenue for years, or my ancestors in South Carolina, who came from slavery.”

On Django Unchained: “I’ve never seen slavery dealt with this way before in film. So often it’s a white character who’s the savior of black people…. We should have a plethora of visions and interpretations of who we are as a nation. This is not necessarily the film I would make about slavery.”

On what roles attract her: “If you look at my body of work, I’ve always taken huge risks. I’ve played prostitutes, drug addicts, pimping lesbians. I do work I’m drawn to.”
