Kerry Washington Reacts to Being Photoshopped on 'Adweek'

Kerry Washington is speaking out after she was photoshopped on the cover of Adweek‘s latest issue to a point where she was unrecognizable.

“So…You know me. I’m not one to be quiet about a magazine cover. I always celebrate it when a respected publication invites me to grace their pages. It’s an honor. And a privilege. And ADWEEK is no exception,” the 39-year-old Scandal actress wrote on Instagram. “I love ADWEEK. It’s a publication I appreciate. And learn from. I’ve long followed them on Twitter. And when they invited me to do a cover, I was excited and thrilled. And the truth is, I’m still excited.”

“I’m proud of the article. And I like some of the inside images a great deal. But, I have to be honest…I was taken aback by the cover,” Kerry added. “Look, I’m no stranger to Photoshopping. It happens a lot. In a way, we have become a society of picture adjusters – who doesn’t love a filter?!? And I don’t always take these adjustments to task but I have had the opportunity to address the impact of my altered image in the past and I think it’s a valuable conversation.”

“Yesterday, however, I just felt weary. It felt strange to look at a picture of myself that is so different from what I look like when I look in the mirror. It’s an unfortunate feeling,” she continued.

Kerry Washington Doesn't Get a Heads Up on 'Scandal' Storyline

Kerry Washington wears a black and white striped dress while posing for the cover of AdWeek‘s latest issue.

Here is what the 39-year-old Scandal actress had to share with the mag:

On if Shonda Rhimes tells her Scandal storylines in advance: “No. I had no idea that the abortion scene was coming until I turned the page at the table read and read it out loud with everybody else.”

On Hillary Clinton stopping by set: “I’m really close to the campaign. … Hillary was in town for a fundraiser, and Tony [Goldwyn, who plays President Fitzgerald Grant] and I thought we might get off work in time to go, but we didn’t. So I emailed Huma [Abedin, Clinton’s longtime aide] and said, “Why don’t you guys come here?” And they were able to. It was very surreal, because at some point you couldn’t tell the difference between our pretend Secret Service on the show, and the real Secret Service walking on the set.”

Tony Goldwyn on next season possibly being the last: “I’m assuming at the end of next season, my presidency will be finished. So what happens to Scandal once there’s a new president? Either that’s the end or Shonda has something in mind that may or may not include me, a whole other direction.”

Kerry Washington Says Playing Olivia Pope Has Helped Her with Motherhood

Kerry Washington looks so sultry on the cover of Elle magazine’s April 2016 issue, on newsstands March 22.

Here’s what the 39-year-old Scandal star had to share with the mag:

On speaking for what she believes in: “I’m a person who’s always been politically active and passionate about people’s rights. I marched against the [2004] Republican Convention. And as my career has expanded, it’s been important for me to not stifle that voice. Because you want to be popular, you want people to hire you, and I have to make sure I don’t do it less because I’m an actor.”

On how playing Olivia Pope helped her with motherhood: “Even though Olivia Pope has obviously made the decision that she is not a mom…playing her made me feel like I could be a mom. Because she knows there’s always another way—there’s always a way to fix it, there’s always a way to solve it, to win. And I feel like playing her made me feel like, All right, I can do it. I will figure out how to juggle it all.”

On her mentor/boss Shonda Rhimes: “She’s been such an amazing resource, as a mom, and as a working mom…I am on one show and I have one kid, and she has three shows and three kids.”
