KERRY WASHINGTON Glamour Cover Girl!


Oh la la! Kerry Washington looks absolutely lovely on the cover of this month’s Glamour Magazine. Inside the mag, the actress opens up about being Olivia Pope and of course talks about her career and how she’s trying to keep her private life out of the spotlight. Here are a few snippets of what she says:

On what is in Olivia Pope’s handbag: “Usually folders, pens, the phone on the show, and often a bottle of water to add a nice weight to the bag. And some panties in one episode!”

On keeping her personal life private: “I learned through experience that it doesn’t work for me to talk about my personal life. I’ve had earlier times in my career when I did talk about it. I was on the cover of a bridal magazine. But I couldn’t just turn around and say, ‘I only want to talk about the good stuff, but not the bad stuff.’ So I just thought, ‘OK, no more.’”

She studies before her appearances on Real Time with Bill Maher: “I am cramming in the green room like it’s a presidential debate. It drives me crazy when artists go on shows like that and don’t sound informed. It gives us a bad name.”

She loves Olivia Pope: “When people come up to me and express their love for [Olivia], I understand it, because I read the scripts and I feel the same way: Wow, what a complicated, three-dimensional, interesting, flawed, inspirational human being.”
