Kerry Washington Admits Being Less Private Early in Her Acting Career

Kerry Washington Admits Being Less Private Early in Her Acting Career

Kerry Washington is pure elegance in white on the cover of Marie Claire magazine’s April 2015 issue, out on newsstands on March 24!

Here’s what the 38-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On privacy: “Earlier in my career, I was much more super-sharey. There were moments when I wanted to process things that were happening to me more privately, and I didn’t have the space to do it, because once you let people in, they’re in and you don’t get to say, ‘Oh, I want this for myself.’”

On fashion: “I just put myself in a boot camp of figuring it out—and realized that I really loved it. I guess because I came to it later in life, I realized, ‘Oh, going to a fashion show is like going to the opening of Degas at the Met or going to see Swan Lake.’”

On collaborating with Scandal creator Shonda Rhimes: “I’m very respectful of Shonda’s vision of who Olivia [Pope] is, but she has said that she is informed by the choices I make. If we were waltzing, she’s definitely leading. And she picked the song, and she probably dressed us, but it is a waltz.”
