Kerry Washington on Orlando Shooting: 'It's Inexcusable'

Kerry Washington cradles her baby bump while walking the green carpet at the SAG-AFTRA Foundation’s 2016 L.A. Golf Classic Fundraiser on Monday afternoon (June 13) in Burbank, Calif.

Also in attendance at the event were actors Dave Annable and Joe Mantegna.

Kerry opened up to Extra at the fundraiser about the Orlando shooting.

“It’s so devastating what happened in Orlando, and I just wonder what it’s going to take for us to create some real reform around gun control in this country,” Kerry said. “My heart just goes out to the LGBT community, it’s not okay for there to be such acts of hate, it’s inexcusable… It’s also scary to me that you can put somebody on a no-fly list, but that same person can walk into a store and buy a gun.”

FYI: Kerry is wearing a Giambattisa Valli dress, SJP Collection shoes, and Anita Ko jewelry.

Lady Gaga & Kerry Washington Take on Variety's 'Actors on Actors' Covers

Lady Gaga, Jamie Lee Curtis, Kerry Washington, and Aziz Ansari take the cover of two separate Actors on Actors Variety covers

Here’s what they shared…

Lady Gaga, on being herself: “I guess the thing is, what I am as Gaga really is what other people think Gaga is. It’s not necessarily what I am. Gaga is this stronger individual part of myself that I discovered being young in New York — loving music, meeting with young artists, working with musicians, with writers, studying the scene, and being involved in the lifestyle.”

Kerry, on producing and acting: “There was that point where it was like, OK, now I’m avoiding the difficult, painful acting of being Anita Hill by going over the schedule with the line producer. I have to now take off the producing hat and focus on going to that place that she was in. It was scarier than I thought it was going to be, but exciting also to learn how to take that hat on and off as a producer and actor.”
