Kerry Washington Covers 'Elle' June 2013

Kerry Washington Covers 'Elle' June 2013

Kerry Washington is stunning on the cover of Elle magazine’s June 2013 issue, on newsstands May 21.

Here’s what the 36-year-old Peeples actress had to share with the mag:

On her 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 a career she thought she’d have: “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.”

On getting ready 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.”

    She deserves a Vogue cover. I wrote to Vogue about this. No talent Blake Lively and Sienna Miller have each gotten 2 Vogue covers, but none for Kerry who’s doing work people care about????

    It’s been a long time coming but Kerry Washington so deserves her place in the sun front and center. This is what humility, brains, beauty, talent a sense of self and working toward a higher purpose for the benefit of others looks like. This is what a real celebrity is all about and I couldn’t be happier that it happened to someone who actually deserves and earned it. You Go Kerry!
