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.”

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.

Kerry Washington Felt Dirty Watching Bradley Cooper & Betty White Make Out on 'SNL 40'

Kerry Washington is stunning in a dress while making an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing on Thursday (February 19).

The 38-year-old actress chatted about being part of the 40th anniversary episode of Saturday Night Live, her pet pooch, and missing out on the Oscar selfie last year.

“It was crazy [SNL] invited me to just be in the audience. Which was super cool because there were no SNL civilians in the audience. Everybody in that room had either performed on the show as a musical guest or as a host so it was very cool. Nobody was allowed in the building who hadn’t been on the show. And then they asked me to be in a sketch. And then they asked me to be in a sketch with Bradley Cooper and Betty White. So it was very fun. I had front row seats to that crazy make out session,” Kerry shared. Watch the video below!
