Kerry Washington is a vibrant beauty on the October 2013 issue of Glamour magazine. Washington rose to fame with her starring role in television series “Scandal.” However, the actress refuses to give in to Hollywood pressures and manages to keep her private life completely 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… 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.’”
Washington has also become well known for her smashing red carpet looks, with bold, couture dresses that only she seems to be able to pull off. However, the actress says her red-carpet skills didn’t start off so strong.
“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.”
