Kerry Washington Reveals How She Deals with Today's Politics

Kerry Washington looks fresh faced and beautiful on the cover of Allure‘s November 2017 issue.

Here’s what the 40-year-old Scandal star had to share with the mag:

On people thinking she’s Olivia Pope being able to “handle it” in real life: “It happens All. The. Time. I mean, part of it is because they know I can connect them to Judy Smith, [the crisis manager] who the role is based on. But people call me to say, ‘I have this problem. Can I talk to you about it?’ And I’m like, ‘I don’t even want to know! Just skip over me!’ But I know secrets.”

On how she handles this political landscape: “I have to dip in and dip out, because it suffocates me. Like, I become unable to function. So it’s a tricky balance between staying aware and also staying connected to a sense of hope and productivity and showing up for life.”

On her beauty indulgence: “Massages. I love them because they fall in that in-between for me: half beauty, half wellness. It’s something I do because I’m in heels a lot and I work really long hours. And I have a lot of pressures in my life. So massages are a good way for me to maintain my health and wellness, but also I feel like I’m doing something indulgent. And I’m a deep-tissue girl. I ask for the strongest massage therapist. Unravel me. Get in there.”

Kerry Washington Talks Being Substitute Teacher After Starring in Big Break 'Save The Last Dance' - Watch Here!

Kerry Washington is picture perfect in a floral dress while making her way inside Good Morning America on Thursday morning (October 4) in New York City.

The 40-year-old actress promoted the series finale of Scandal before switching into a different outfit to make her way out of the studios.

The evening before, Kerry made an appearance on The Late Show and opened up to host Stephen Colbert about the jobs she held before making it big.

“I worked in a restaurant and I taught yoga and I also was a substitute teacher for New York City public schools,” Kerry recalled. “It was a perfect job for an actor because you get a call in the morning saying, ‘We need a teacher,’ and if I had an audition, I wouldn’t go, but if I didn’t have an audition — which was most days — I would go and work in a school.”

“I got a job in a movie called Save the Last Dance, and it was my first big film,” Kerry continued. “It did not pay me a lot of money, so after the movie came out, I went back to substitute teaching for a while. And then I had to make a rule that I wouldn’t work in high schools. I could only do elementary schools because kids were cutting class to see Chenille teach French. So it was bad. I would go into a school and I would see all these kids outside the window trying to see that girl from Save the Last Dance.”

She is wearing a Dolce & Gabbana dress, Paul Andrew heels and earrings by Graziela Gems on The Late Show.
