Can we say stunning?
Scandal star, Kerry Washington covers the new issue of Net-A-Porter.com’s The Edit looking oh so chic! The actress explained what you have to do when your the biggest television star and your show is about to come on, but you’re in labor and you don’t want anyone to know. It’s definitely something Olivia Pope would advise her clients to do as well. Kerry also reveals what she would like to be if she wasn’t an actress.
On tweeting while in labor: “Every Thursday within three weeks of my (daughter Isabelle’s) due date, I loaded up pre-tweets based on the episodes and what I would want to say. I tweeted in the very early stages of my labor. I figured that if I went completely silent on social media, then people would know I was in the hospital!”
On what she’d be if she wasn’t an actress: “I would be involved in politics, but I would probably be teaching. It’s what my mother did, so it’s in my blood. My mother is so badass. I watched her get her doctorate when I was a little girl: she got that around the same time that I graduated from kindergarten so we both had caps and gowns. I grew up with a belief in the importance of a woman’s mind and that has been a real gift for me.”
On if she feels pressure to be politically active: “I have a sense of responsibility that was ingrained in me as a kid, but I’m not perfect; I haven’t voted in every election. But I’m trying to be better about it because so many people put their lives on the line for me to have this right.”
