Kerry Washington finally made her way on to the cover of a major women's magazine for the first time. The actress, who was nominated for Oscars for her roles in "Ray" and "The Last King of Scotland", graces the cover of Elle
magazine's June edition and fills the inside spread with a series of her sexy photos.
Making her debut covering a fashion magazine, Washington dons a cropped gray cardigan and plaid shorts that highlight her legs. Showing off her full red lips, she gives the camera her signature pout. In an inside photo, she bares her chest in a Giorgio Armani Jacket and a low-cut top that goes with a pair of short jeans by Levi's.
In an interview with the magazine, Kerry talks about her current success. The actress, who worked with director Quentin Tarantino in "Django Unchained", says, "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."
Kerry tells Elle that when she was younger, she wasn't the kind of a girl who considered modeling or being an actress. Saying that she was "a kooky theater kid," she imagined she'd "be a clinical psychologist, with a focus on how performance shapes identity." She adds, "I'd figure out ways to use role-playing in the healing of people."
