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.”

Kerry Washington Addresses Nnamdi Asomugha Divorce Rumors

Kerry Washington arrives for her talk about the New Rules of Social Stardom with InStyle Editorial Director Ariel Foxman during the 2016 SXSW Music, Film + Interactive Festival held at the Austin Convention Center on Sunday (March 13) in Austin, Tex.

The 39-year-old Scandal star addressed rumors that she and her husband Nnamdi Asomugha are divorcing.

“I think — and this is something Reese Witherspoon has talked about a lot — it’s a little different for me because I don’t talk about my personal life,” Kerry said. “Social media has actually been great for [other celebrities'] relationships with the weeklies or the gossip sites because people say things and they say, ‘That’s not true! Just so you know, that’s BS!’ I say ‘BS’ because it’s Sunday. So I’m thinking in some ways, it’s been great because people are able to maintain their voice.”

“If I don’t talk about my personal life, it means I don’t talk about my personal life,” she clarified. “That means not only did I not tell you when I was getting married, it also means if somebody has rumors about what’s going on in my marriage, I don’t refute them, because I don’t talk about my personal life.”

“My husband says that I’m funnier since I became a mom, and that luckily I was pregnant when I did SNL because I was really funny,” Kerry joked. “I think something about being a mom has made me let go even more of ideas of perfectionism, like when you’re pregnant you’re just not in control of anything. Like every day you’re like, ‘What am I today?’”

FYI: Kerry is wearing Dolce&Gabbana with a Salvatore Ferragamo handbag.

Strong but flawed, human but extraordinary. Our characters are on television but the real world… The real world has Hillary Clinton. A bonafide, rolls up her sleeves, fights for what’s right, in it for you, won’t back down, champion for all of us. That’s why I’m with Hillary. Join us.”
