Fresh from a Elle Magazine cover and her T.V. father trying to murder her the beautiful Kerry Washington covers The Hollywood Reporter. Sharing the front page with Connie Britton, Anna Gun, Kata Mara, Elisabeth Moss, and Monica Potter, the ladies pose for the cover in black and white. The ABC Scandal star was outfitted in a black tank crop top that has a slight peplum like flare and a lose pair of pants that were fitted at the ankles and pointy toe pumps.
Along with the amazing cover Kerry participates in a group interview where she talks about not landing roles because she’s “ethic”, being politically active, and Scandal’s popularity on Twitter. Check out a piece from the interview below courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter :
THR: Last year, January Jones told THR a story about her audition for Coyote Uglyduring which Jerry Bruckheimer told her she was a terrible dancer. What’s your worst audition?
Washington: It’s a little bit different for me because I’ll audition for something and they’ll just decide that they’re not going “ethnic” with a character, which I hear a lot.
THR: Casting directors still use the word “ethnic”?
Washington: If not “black,” then yeah. People have artistic license … that’s what casting is: fitting the right look to the right character. Whereas you could maybe lose some weight, there’s not really anything I can do, nor would I want to, about being black.
