I think it’s safe to say we’ve all fallen in love with Kerry Washington right?
The 35-year-old Scandal star looks undeniably gorgeous for the December/January issue of Uptown magazine shot by famed photographer Nino Muñoz.
Kerry sports an array of looks including a Natori bra, paired with a black Altuzarra skirt for the issue in which she speaks about her blossoming career and her latest flick, Django Unchained, co-starring Jamie Foxx.
On movie roles: “If I were to say it’s okay to play a lawyer but not a maid, or it’s okay to play a professor but not a slave, that would be sort of spitting on the legacy of my grandmother, who was a maid on Park Avenue for years, or my ancestors in South Carolina, who came from slavery.”
On “Django Unchained”: “I’ve never seen slavery dealt with this way before in film. So often it’s a white character who’s the savior of black people…. We should have a plethora of visions and interpretations of who we are as a nation. This is not necessarily the film I would make about slavery.”
On choosing roles: “If you look at my body of work, I’ve always taken huge risks. I’ve played prostitutes, drug addicts, pimping lesbians. I do work I’m drawn to.”
