Kerry Washington Explains What She Learned from Anita Hill

Kerry Washington speaks on stage during a conversation with Fast Company editor-in-chief Stephanie Mehta at the Fast Company Innovation Festival on Tuesday (October 23) at the 92nd Street Y in New York City.

The event also featured conversations with music mogul Scooter Braun and horror movie pioneer Jason Blum.

During her interview, Kerry discussed playing Anita Hill in the HBO movie Confirmation and what she learned from playing her in the film.

Anita Hill taught me what fearlessness really is,” she said. “She really taught me what sacrifice looks like, and how to maintain your dignity in the face of absolute absurdity. What Anita did was she gave up her anonymity for the sake of our democracy.”

FYI: Kerry is wearing Jennifer Fisher hoops.

Ivanka Trump Defends Father Ahead of Final Presidential Debate

Ivanka Trump steps out in red while speaking on stage at the 2016 Fortune Most Powerful Women Summit held at Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel on Wednesday (October 19) in Dana Point, Calif.

The 34-year-old businesswoman and daughter of Donald Trump was joined at the event by Kate Hudson, Chelsea Handler, and Anita Hill.

During the interview, Ivanka defended her father in regards to the crude conversation that recently leaked from Access Hollywood.

“I did find it to be offensive, he acknowledged it was as well,” she said (via Time). “This tape was over a decade old, I’m sure he didn’t remember this conversation but was very embarrassed by it. And he expressed that, not only to me personally, but to the American people. I appreciate that he did that. I think it was very important for him to have done so.”

Ivanka added, “Well he recognizes that it was crude language. He was embarrassed that he had said those things and he apologized. That’s not language consistent with any conversation that I’ve ever had with him certainly or any conversation that I’ve overheard so it was a bit jarring for me to hear. He was very sincere in his apology.”

Anita Hill Praises Kerry Washington For 'Confirmation' Performance

Kerry Washington is getting some praise from Anita Hill, who she portrays in the upcoming HBO movie Confirmation.

“I loved her dignity and emotion,” Anita told Essence about Kerry‘s portrayal. “She appeared a lot more dignified than I felt during that moment, but she still lost nothing in terms of how painful the experience was. That is hard to convey, but she did it beautifully.”

Back in 1991, Anita spoke out against then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas for sexual harassment.

Greg Kinnear, Jennifer Hudson, and Eric Stonestreet also star in the movie, set to debut on April 16.
