Kerry Washington has covered her third magazine cover this year! This time it’s for the March/April 2015 issue of “Ebony” magazine. You can check out the article below, as well as a preview of the magazine cover and 3 outtakes of Kerry from the photoshoot. Enjoy and be sure to pick up your copy, which is on newsstands now!
“Ebony” — KERRY WITH HER HANDS ON HER HIPS AND EYES NARROWED, Kerry Washington is delivering instructions in a firm tone. She is not pleased.
“I don’t have two straight lines here!” says Washington to a number of excited youngsters assembled for a class excursion. “I need two … straight … lines.”
Standing in front of the nearly 100 students from Inglewood, Calif.’s, Warren Lane Elementary School, Washington’s booming voice and stern look has transformed her into the quintessential schoolteacher. The usually designer-drenched actress is confidently leading the group wearing a simple dress and sensible pumps. The only thing that gives away her superstar status is her purse: a black crossbody Givenchy bag. Clearly enamored with—and in awe of—their mentor, these kids seem to have little choice but to fall in place.
Washington is no stranger to the children. As part of the Turnaround Arts program, she comes into the school regularly, interacting with the students and introducing them to the arts through field trips and acting classes. On this day, they’re traveling to UCLA to see a live performance of The Hot Chocolate Nutcracker, Debbie Allen’s interpretation of the legendary ballet.
“Today is very important,” states Washington, addressing the youngsters. “The performers know that a group of students from Warren Lane will be in the audience, so how you behave matters. Think about what you want them to think of your school? And what do you want them to think of you?”
“We want them to know the kids at our school are respectful,” offers a little girl after raising her hand.
“That the kids at Warren Lane are respectful!” Washington echoes. “Yes! Who else?”
A little boy standing toward the back chimes in. “That the kids at Warren Lane are fantastic.”
“That the kids at Warren Lane are fantastic!” Washington repeats. “Exactly! So will we be on our very best behavior to represent our school?”
“Yes, Ms. Kerry!” the kids ring out in unison. With just a hint of a smile, she leads them into the auditorium for the show.
(PRIVATELY) DRUNK IN LOVE
THERE ARE MANY facets of Kerry Washington, some we know well, and some we don’t know at all. Frankly, the actress can be a reporter’s nightmare—candid to a point, tight-lipped to a fault. At the same time, she drops gems on life and love that are spoken from a place of true grace, wisdom and self-awareness; the kind that she has clearly worked hard to achieve.
One week after the Hot Chocolate Nutcracker performance, the version of Washington who filed 100 students in two straight lines in five minutes is nowhere to be found. Now, she is getting all dolled up in a photographer’s studio, prepping for her EBONY cover shoot. Her hair perfectly coiffed and her face made up to understated perfection, Washington slips behind a cordoned-off area and comes out in a drop-dead gorgeous, floor-length gown. She walks toward the photographer, ready for her close-up.

Scandal > Season 4 > Screen Captures > 4×15 – The Testimony of Diego Muñoz
“The Hollywood Reporter” — Kerry Washington is headed to HBO.
The Scandal star has signed on to play Anita Hill and executive produce a TV movie for the premium cable network, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Called Confirmation, the telepic — which is in development from HBO Films — will detail the explosive 1991 Clarence Thomas Supreme Court nomination hearings (at which Hill testified), which brought the country to a standstill and forever changed the way people think about sexual harassment, victims’ rights and modern-day race relations.
Academy Award-nominated writer Susannah Grant (Erin Brockovich) will pen the script and executive produce the drama, which is being produced by Groundswell Productions in association with ABC Signature Studios. Groundswell CEO Michael London (ABC’s upcoming soap Astronaut Wives Club) and production president Janice Williams will executive produce alongside Grant and star Washington. Sources tell THR that Rick Famuyiwa (Sundance hit Dope, The Wood) is in talks to direct the pic, but no deal is in place.
Confirmation comes as Washington was poised to film Warner Bros.’ feature drama Unforgettable in the summer for director Amma Asante, but the HBO project may take over her hiatus from Scandal, her hit ABC series from Shonda Rhimes.
For HBO, Confirmation comes as the premium cabler is building its roster of original films. HBO this week tapped Elizabeth Banks and Paul Giamatti to play tennis legends Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs, respectively, in a movie detailing the duo’s legendary Battle of the Sexes match. Additionally, HBO is also prepping an adaptation of Bryan Cranston’s Tony winner All the Way with Jay Roach attached to direct.
The Confirmation deal also marks a big off-network sale for ABC Signature, the boutique arm of ABC Studios. It’s also HBO’s latest buy from an outside studio following series including Warner Bros. Television’s The Leftovers and upcoming Westworld.
Grant is repped by CAA and Kleinberg Lange; Washington is with CAA, Washington Square Films and Hansen Jacobson; Famuyiwa is with WME, Oasis Media Group and Del Shaw.
Kerry Washington graced us with yet another magazine cover! This time it’s the April 2015 issue of “Marie Claire” magazine. You can check out a preview of the magazine cover below, as well as the full version in our photo gallery and 3 outtakes from the photoshoot. Not only that, but you can read highlights from the interview below. Enjoy and be sure to pick up your copy, which hits newsstands on March 24th!
“Marie Claire” — It’s no scandalous secret: I worship Kerry Washington. It’s no secret I am an obsessive Scandal fan (and an early adopter to boot), but I am also an obsessive fan of Kerry the woman. From her passion for politics to her playful yet thoroughly on-point red-carpet fashion, from her ability to maintain a very private life to the way she has redefined identity and visibility for so many women—she is my ideal gal.
If I believed in the term girl crush, I would use it on her, and if I needed advice on how to stay classy, strong, and honest in the public eye, she is who I would consult. And now I got that chance. I decided to forgo a traditional profile structure and simply ask Kerry the questions I have long craved answers to. Not only did she respond with kindness and candor, she actually brought me a gift (chocolate and a candle that smelled like alpine heaven), proving that she is, in fact, the 24-hour woman. (I have never showed up with a gift, unless you count an empty Dr. Pepper bottle to recycle.) I hope her humor, wisdom, and chic-attack style can rub off on me. I hope I asked the right questions, so we can all benefit from Kerry’s magic.
Here, highlights from our conversation:
Kerry Washington on privacy: “Earlier in my career I was much more super-sharey. There were moments when I wanted to process things that were happening to me more privately, and I didn’t have the space to do it, because once you let people in, they’re in and you don’t get to say, ‘Oh, I want this for myself.'”
On collaborating with Scandal creator Shonda Rhimes: “I’m very respectful of Shonda’s vision of who Olivia [Pope] is, but she has said that she is informed by the choices I make. If we were waltzing, she’s definitely leading. And she picked the song, and she probably dressed us, but it is a waltz.”
On fashion: “I just put myself in a boot camp of figuring it out—and realized that I really loved it. I guess because I came to it later in life, I realized, ‘Oh, going to a fashion show is like going to the opening of Degas at the Met or going to see Swan Lake.'”
On growing up: “I didn’t grow up thinking I was pretty; there was always a prettier girl than me. So I learned to be smart and tried to be funny and develop the inside of me, because I felt like that’s what I had.”
On family: “I just want [daughter Isabelle] to know that she’s heard. Really heard, because I feel like that is what we all really want. When I think about any of the missteps in my life that I’ve made, all of which I’m grateful for, it’s because I just so wanted to be truly seen and heard for who I am and was afraid I wasn’t or wouldn’t be. I see you, I hear you, I’m with you as you are.”
On Olivia Pope: “I don’t think I consciously say, ‘What would Olivia Pope do?’ but there’s a new thread of belief in my own capacity that I think comes from her. She makes it happen. She figures it out. She fixes it.”
