Kerry Washington Tweeted While in Labor for a Very Specific Reason!

Kerry Washington takes the cover of Net-a-Porter’s The Edit magazine looking stunning!

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

On tweeting while in labor: “Every Thursday within three weeks of my (daughter Isabelle’s) due date, I loaded up pre-tweets based on the episodes and what I would want to say. I tweeted in the very early stages of my labor. I figured that if I went completely silent on social media, then people would know I was in the hospital!”

On what she’d be if she wasn’t an actress: “I would be involved in politics, but I would probably be teaching. It’s what my mother did, so it’s in my blood. My mother is so badass. I watched her get her doctorate when I was a little girl: she got that around the same time that I graduated from kindergarten so we both had caps and gowns. I grew up with a belief in the importance of a woman’s mind and that has been a real gift for me.”

On if she feels pressure to be politically active: “I have a sense of responsibility that was ingrained in me as a kid, but I’m not perfect; I haven’t voted in every election. But I’m trying to be better about it because so many people put their lives on the line for me to have this right.”

Kerry Washington Delivers a Powerful Speech at GLAAD Media Awards - Watch Now!

Kerry Washington gave an extremely powerful speech last night while accepting the Vanguard Award at the 2015 GLAAD Media Awards and it’s definitely a must-watch this morning.

“On Monday morning, people are going to click a link to hear what that woman from Scandal said at that awards show, and so, I think some stuff needs to be said,” the 38-year-old actress started off her speech.

“Women, poor people, people of color, people with disabilities, immigrants, gay men, lesbians, bisexuals, trans people, intersex people…have been pitted against each other and made to feel like there are limited seats at the table for those of us who fall into the category of other,” Kerry said.

“We need more diverse LGBT representation [in the media],” Kerry added. “And this is big — we need more employment of LGBT people, in front of and behind the camera. We can’t say that we believe in each other’s fundamental humanity and then turn a blind eye to the reality of each other’s existence and the truth of each other’s hearts.”

Kerry Washington Will Play Anita Hill in Upcoming HBO Movie

Kerry Washington looks super fierce in two different outfits while filming scenes for Scandal on Tuesday (March 17) in downtown Los Angeles.

The 38-year-old actress just landed a great new movie role – she will play attorney Anita Hill in the upcoming HBO movie Confirmation.

The film will be about the “1991 Clarence Thomas-Hill Supreme Court nomination hearings, which brought the nation to a standstill and forever changed the way people think about sexual harassment, victims’ rights and race relations in the modern world,” according to Entertainment Weekly.

Susannah Grant, who wrote the screenplay for Erin Brockovich, will pen the script and a director has not been set yet.

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.”

Kerry Washington, Tony Goldwyn, Bellamy Young, Darby Stanchfield, Scott Foley, Guillermo Diaz, Josh Malina, and Jeff Perry were all in attendance for the talk, which was hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.

One awkward question was asked by a fan during the chat. It pertained to Columbus Short, who ended up off the show after some domestic violence charges.

“Everybody who is in this family is in this family, whether we’re working on the show or not,” Kerry said (via THR). “Thank you for understanding why we’re not going to answer that.”

FYI: Kerry is wearing a Mary Katrantzou dress, Christian Louboutin shoes, Isharya earrings, and a Jennifer Fisher cuff. Darby is wearing a 2nd Skin Co dress and belt, Le Silla shoes, Edie Parker clutch, and Dana Rebecca Designs jewels. Katie is wearing a Dorothee Schumacher blouse and skirt.
