Kerry Washington to 'Lucky': It's a Miracle to Work in Hollywood!

Kerry Washington to 'Lucky': It's a Miracle to Work in Hollywood!

Kerry Washington exudes fun on the cover of Lucky magazine’s December/January issue, on newsstands November 19.

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

On the dangers of the media: “Even for me, I think it’s a real danger to compare yourself to someone on a television show. I know that I am not going to look like [Scandal character] Olivia when I wake up and go to the bathroom at 4 o’clock in the morning. On the set, it’s somebody’s job to follow me around all day with spackle.”

On living low-key: “I can run into Madewell and J.Crew and be good for a few months. I’m not a formal person. I have a lot of jeans. And I have tons of sneakers, whether they’re the custom Nikes that you can make online or the Isabel Marant wedges. That’s the Bronx in me, for sure.”

On working in Hollywood: “It’s a miracle to even work in this industry. I didn’t become an actress to be on the cover of magazines. That was always a little scary to me. What I love about acting is the craft of becoming different people and telling a story.”

Black women have the most beautiful hair in the world.
This cover proves my point.
It’s so shiny and well styled.

# 6

She is NO beauty.
Big lips are always munching on something.

# 7

the cover looks nothing like kerry washington! i had to read who the heck it was on the cover #photoshopfail

# 8

She’s way prettier than this. But I don’t like her makeup in films; they’re always playing up her lips for appeal to the porno crowd or something.

# 9

is it me or is she trying way too hard to be michelle obama….gosh Kerri you ware way better than this.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen Kerry Washington with stick straight hair…I don’t think it suits her. I also think the photoshopping is not doing her any favours. If we can’t recognize her, what’s the point?!?!
