Kerry Washington Covers 'Parade' Magazine!

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.”

Love my job, since I’ve been bringing in $5600… I sit at home, music playing while I work in front of my new iMac that I got now that I’m making it online.(Click Home information)

Her career really picked up because of Scandal. She was doing movies but could never be A list from them like from this tv show.

Making history? WTF is she talking about? You’re on a tv show, not curing HIV.
