Yaaaas! You Better Work: Kerry Washington Covers June Issue Of ELLE And Talks Finally Reaching The Success She’s Wanted

May 7, 2013  |  

Looking like a million bucks, Kerry Washington covers the upcoming June issue of ELLE in a black cardigan and silver and black hot pants. Inside the issue, Washington talks about her current success, how she gets red-carpet ready, and more.

In excerpts from her interview, Washington was asked about her thoughts on all the success she’s been having over the last few years, and she made it clear that she’s blessed beyond measure.

“I’m the luckiest broad in Hollywood now. To be the lead actor on Scandal and to be in the highest-earning Tarantino movie- I don’t get to ask for more.”

But at the same time, to have her face on the cover of magazines and to even have ELLE say that Scandal has made her the “hottest woman on TV” is still hard for her to grasp, especially since she used to be something of a nerd back in the day.

“I was not that girl.  I was a kooky theater kid, silly and goofy and academic.”

But now that she’s embraced her cover girl looks and fame, she knows how important it is to be red-carpet fabulous. And while it’s not a simple task, however, Kerry says she finds getting glammed up with her glam team to be a lot of fun.

“I found out I enjoy the process. All these people show up at my house, they all have kits, someone has dresses. And it’s like, Let’s have fun. It’s not all about me. We’re able to create stories on the red carpet.”

She’s amazing is she not? Pick up the new issue on newsstands on May 21, and check out more shots from her spread in the magazine at Elle.com.
