Kerry Washington Covers 'Flare' October 2013

Kerry Washington Covers 'Flare' October 2013

Kerry Washington is a super fashionista in a Miu Miu coat on the cover of Flare magazine’s October 2013 issue.

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

On rooting for the mistress on Scandal: “A lot of people have had an affair. Most people haven’t had an affair with the president of the United States. But they can relate to it… I had girlfriends calling me from week three [of Scandal] going, ‘I’m really uncomfortable. Why am I rooting for the mistress? I’m a married woman!’ And I would say, ‘It’s OK, it’s OK.’?… There are some ways you want to be Olivia Pope and some ways you want to do a major intervention for her.”

On why she loves acting: “I love those moments that are few and far between, where you’re so deeply, deeply invested in an imaginary world that you truly forget yourself for a little while, and the only reality that exists is the reality of that scene. That’s like drugs to me. And it is hard to find that high, but that’s what you work for.”

On her love of fashion: “The red carpet is good marketing. When you work so hard, you should stand behind the project in a way that magnetizes people. So I, like a good, only-child student, studied fashion and decided I was going to play that game, and fell in love with it, and with the artists and designers.”

FYI: Kerry is wearing a Sydney Evan ring.
