Kerry Washington covers the June 2013 issue of ELLE Magazine when she reflects on the career she thought she'd have and why she's the luckiest chick in Hollywood.  Find out what she said inside and watch the ABC trailer for "Mistresses".

 

In the June 2013 issue of ELLE Magazine, screen goddess Kerry Washington reflected on the career she thought she'd have in academia and why she never expected to become a leading lady.  Also, the "Scandal" actress, who turned heads at the 2013 Met Ball last night, commented on her red carpet process and the village of fashionable people it takes to help her create memorable looks.  Here are the highlights:

On her current success: "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.

When asked if as a girl she thought she'd ever consider modeling or becoming a film actress: "I was not that girl. I was a kooky theater kid, silly and goofy and academic."

On getting red-carpet ready: "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."

On the career Washington thought she'd pursue: "I imagined I'd be a clinical psychologist, with a focus on how performance shapes identity. I'd figure out ways to use role-playing in the healing of people."

She really does look amazing.

She really does look amazing. I'm very proud of her achievements and for being SO successful and using her celebrity as a platform to empower young black girls. I really appreciate how she's different and is comfortable with herself and having the time of her life. I think those you foul enough to joke about speech impediments and other disabilities are actually giving Kerry even more credence to do what she does. You bullies are the reason that some kids are scarred or don't speak, etc...We've only got ONE sista on a primetime show with ONE sista writing. I know you won't be, but you ought to be ashamed. Commenting on her fashion is one thing but something she truly can't help (which gives her character anyway) is low. Not that she and her millions and white man are thinking about yall anyway. Lol, enjoy your check to check. Hopefully you can keep the lights on so you can peck out your negative comments.

No matter what, no matter

No matter what, no matter who, these folks (women) always have something negative to say about just about everybody. Especially other black women. Talk about crabs in a barrel! Dayum!! Instead of this mandatory sign in shyt, I wish there was a mandatory photograph of the commenter so everyone could see what the troll commenting looks like.

Kerry is beautiful, educated, smart and talented as hell . Most of the ones dissing her are probably overweight and underachievers. That's how it goes.

Love Kerry and I love Scandal

Love Kerry and I love Scandal but either ole girl has a serious case of anorexia or they have airbrushed the hell out of her hips and ass....

Kerry is beautiful and she

Kerry is beautiful and she looks awesome in these pics. It's funny that a few days ago, Zoe Saldana was on this site with a very similar skirt and everyone loved it...but on Kerry it looks like a diaper? Really? I don't believe that Ms. Washington got her breaks on her back with white men, she has been around for years playing roles in movies like Mr. and Mrs. Smith with Angelina Joliee and Brad Pitt for example. She is intelligent, articulate and sophisticated. Scandal is a well-written show withs lots of twists and cliff-hangers and Kerry plays the hell out of that role. That's why it's doing so well. When was the last time you saw an intelligent black woman as a lead in a major network television series? I'll wait.......The point is let's stop tearing each other down. I don't care who she dates or even that her character is having an affair with a white character - they're characters and its entertainment.

I love Kerry and she is

I love Kerry and she is stunningly beautiful but I do not like these photos with the hair pulled back. WTF with having her hair in a bun? She has beautiful hair, why are they hiding it? Black women do have hair you know Not all of us wear weaves.

Wait, so why aren't you

Wait, so why aren't you complaining about Kim Kardashian being on this site everyday? Just because you young black girls are desperately trying to make her an honorary black woman, excited because she dated and marry black men, but that's ok, but Kerry Washington being on a top rated t.v. show, in a ovie that made over 100 million dollars, she isn't worthy being discussed everyday? The only argument people have against Kerry is that she dates white men, in real life and on camera. Let it go already.

If it makes you feel any

If it makes you feel any better to hear this, I don't give two shits about Kim. Too much of anything or anybody becomes just that......TOO MUCH!!!

This is one over rated speech

This is one over rated speech impediment having girl. Luck and sleeping with someone powerful has to be the reason she gets all these parts. She is mediocre in looks, fashion and everything. i just dont understand it. I hate her lisp so I dont watch anything she is in.

I Don't Like That Outfit On Ms.Washingston...Specially The Bottom. The Bottom Looks Like A Baby Diaper Cover. Smh.

I agree. She looks like she

I agree. She looks like she has on a diaper in that one shot. If she had more hips or ass, or the material was made differently, then it wouldnt look like that.

Damn that's one beautiful

Damn that's one beautiful black woman smh. You guys should checkout thegrandreport, they usually have good stories as well

Scandal & all these shows got

Scandal & all these shows got jumpoff's thinking they are the shit but unless Shondra Rhimes is writing your weekly life story u still a jumpoff. On another note Kerry need to ask for a huge raise. Word on the street is for the 2nd season of Scandal Kerry wasn't even making 6 figures per episode. At the same time u got a nontalented hood rat extraodinaire Nene making 275k per episode for last season & negociating for twice as much for next season.
