Kerry Washington Covers 'Parade' Magazine!

Kerry Washington is ready for her close up on the latest cover of Parade magazine.

Here’s what the 36-year-old Scandal star had to share with the mag:

On her work in Django Unchained: “I feel like I barely survived Django emotionally. The violence. Hearing the N-word every day. It cost me a lot psychologically, but it was worth it to tell that story.”

On choosing to do Peeples: “I’m a goofy person. That’s how I ended up in Peeples. Tyler Perry saw me joking around…and said, ‘I had no idea you were this silly.’”

On taking the role in Scandal: “I didn’t realize…when I was auditioning for the role. I knew that in my lifetime I’d never seen it. But it didn’t compute to me that I’d be making history. I just fell in love with the character.”
