kerry_washington-essence_nov_cover

Scandal actress Kerry Washington wears a Rafael Cennamo gold dress on the cover of Essence magazine’s November 2013 issue. For this issue, the Emmy nominee was styled by celebrity stylist June Ambrose. Inside, Washington talks about why her role as Olivia Pope has more impact on America then we think.

They are allowing an educated, intelligent, powerful, complicated, human, flawed, multidimensional Black woman into their homes. They’re not walking past her on the street, they’re not trying to avoid engaging her, they’re not ignoring her and pretending she’s somebody else’s family and somebody else’s problem…,” said Washington.

Season 3 of Scandal premieres tonight on ABC at 10pm. Are you tuning in? I am! Let’s support Black Hollywood. The November 2013 issue of Essence magazine hits newsstands October 1oth.

In related Kerry Washington news, yesterday Wednesday (October 2), the Bronx, New York-native and George Washington University graduate was spotted at NYC’s Paley Center for a special event in her honor, “She’s Making Media: Kerry Washington“. While there, Washington talked about the contributions of Black actresses to the arts and also commented on her own political activism with the John Kerry and President Obama campaigns.

Kerry Washington Covers Glamour; Talks Fashion, Scandal & Her New Marriage

20130903-082700

Successful Hollywood actress Kerry Washington covers the October Fall 2013 issue of Glamour magazine. Things are really looking good for Washington. She’s truly blessed! She is the first African-American female to lead in a network drama in almost 40 years. Her role on Scandal made history and it also earned her an Emmy nomination. Earlier in the summer she got married to San Francisco 49ers cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha. Washington also serves the Obama administration (as a member of the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities).

On the cover of Glamour, she gets pretty in a pink Dior dress. Inside she poses in designer brands including DiorDolce & GabbanaBurberry ProrsumChloeChristian LoboutinJimmy ChooLouis Vuitton and more. She also talked to writer Cindi Leive about fashion, Scandal and her new marriage. Below are some highlights:

I want to ask about fashion too. At what point did it start to be fun, or is it still kind of something you do because it’s part of the job?
It started out as, like, Good-Student Kerry. OK, I’m going to admit this: There were a couple of actresses whom I felt were having the upper hand careerwise—because they knew how to work that red carpet. I was like, “I’m missing a really important tool. If I am the CEO of the Kerry Washington Corporation, my marketing department is really lax.” So I sort of developed a new character: Red-Carpet Kerry.

And the fashion on Scandal is a whole other story. All that white! Did that come from you?
From me and the costume designer Lyn Paolo. And the pants—that Olivia wears pants—that was mine, because I really wanted her to wear the pants in that relationship.

OK, so relationships. In interview after interview, you always use the same phrase: “I don’t talk about my personal life.” I’m curious about the discipline that it requires to be so tight-lipped.
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 [InStyle Weddings, in 2005, when Washington was engaged to actor David Moscow]. 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.

You even managed to get married in June without anyone knowing.
Absolutely! I’m walking around in the world with my ring. And when people say congratulations, I say thank you. But I’m going to continue to not talk about it and just let it unfold.

This is shocking to all of us! Kerry Washington pulled a Janet Jackson move and secretly married her NFL player boyfriend. Who even knew she was dating? The Scandal and D’Jango Unchained actress married San Francisco 49ers cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha in Idaho on June 24, according to a marriage certificate obtained by E! News.

According to ABC News, “The Blaine County Recorder’s Office confirmed to ABC News that a marriage license was issued for the couple at 9:16 a.m. on June 24. The actress’s parents Earl and Valerie Washington signed the document as witnesses to the nuptials while Chisaraokwu Asomugha was listed as the minister.”

The twosome has been secretly dating for about a year before they decided to tie the knot. In 2007, Washington broke up with her ex-fiancée, actor David Moscow, after dating for three years. Asomugha is a three-time Pro Bowler, who currently plays for the 49ers.

Are they Hollywood’s newest hottest couple?

Washington recently covered Vanity Fair, the first Black woman to grace the cover of the publication since Beyoncé in 2005, Maxim Australia and Hype Hair.

Kerry Washington Covers The December 2012 Issue Of Women’s Health Magazine

Actress Kerry Washington is covering the December 2012 issue of Women’s Health magazine. The Scandal and Django Unchained star graces the cover in a tuxedo style blazer and panties. Inside, she talks about preparing for her role in Django Unchained, what would she be doing if she wasn’t an actress and her choice of junk food. Below are some highlights:

On preparing for her role in Django Unchained:

“One of the things that I really love most about my job is the research part of it….So, I studied a lot. It’s kind of hard to articulate the level of preparation that we all had to do for this film because so much of it was emotional and psychological preparation. It’s hard to talk about because we all had to go into a part of American history that is so dark and complicated and fraught with the past sins of this country.”

On being a teacher if she wasn’t a successful actress:

“If I wasn’t an actress, I would probably be a teacher. Either an elementary school teacher or a yoga teacher. Both of which I did when I was living in New York pursuing a career in acting. I liked doing both of those things very much. I think it would surprise people to know that what I really wanted to do as a child was to be the woman in the Shamu show at Sea World. And the big joke in my family is that I started taking Marine Biology and I was like, forget the whale, I’ll just be on stage by myself.”

On her choice of junk food:

“I am not a vegan, but I like vegan protein shakes. I mix them with coconut water instead of regular water. That’s my secret to having them taste better. I love popcorn. I could live on popcorn. The writers of Scandal have made my character Olivia Pope have a similar relationship with popcorn. But I don’t mind because I get to eat popcorn at work.”
