Anita Hill Praises Kerry Washington For 'Confirmation' Performance

Kerry Washington is getting some praise from Anita Hill, who she portrays in the upcoming HBO movie Confirmation.

“I loved her dignity and emotion,” Anita told Essence about Kerry‘s portrayal. “She appeared a lot more dignified than I felt during that moment, but she still lost nothing in terms of how painful the experience was. That is hard to convey, but she did it beautifully.”

Back in 1991, Anita spoke out against then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas for sexual harassment.

Greg Kinnear, Jennifer Hudson, and Eric Stonestreet also star in the movie, set to debut on April 16.
