"Scandal" star Kerry Washington had made a career of playing very complicated and challenging women on-screen.  And in the latest issue of PARADE, Kerry, who'll soon hit the big screen in Peeples (May 10th), sat down to talk about the physical and emotional toll that playing Broomhilda in Django Unchained took on her.  She told the magazine,

"I feel like I barely survived Django emotionally. The violence. Hearing the N-word every day. It cost me a lot psychologically, but it was worth it to tell that story."

She also commented on the history she's making as Olivia Pope on "Scandal",  as the Black female-lead in a primetime series.

‘I didn’t realize…when I was auditioning for the role. I knew that in my lifetime I’d never seen it. But it didn’t compute to me that I’d be making history. I just fell in love with the character.’

Kerry's article in PARADE premieres tomorrow.  Check out some video footage from her gorgeous cover shoot & interview below:

But we're all clutching our pearls (and diamonds) to see if Vlad Doronin shows up on her arm, as word on the street is that they're on the border of splitting up

How can any black woman think

How can any black woman think it is an honor to play a role in a movie called "Scandal" with a black/white love story line? Doesnt Kerry know that ALL WHITE WOMEN and many WHITE people want to believe that white men are not capable of loving black women, and always describe their love matches as scandalous or dirty or rape???? Why would you play into the perpetuation of that stereotype. I dont know if long tall muscular body of a man, Naomi will keep paying that russian or not, but his wife approves of him getting all her money. The wife said he would never shame his family by marrying her, and she was right. Its obvious she's broke. With the money she made, and lied like she got from him, she shouldn't have to work at all at her age.
