Actress Kerry Washington Covers ESSENCE Magazine!
Actress Kerry Washington covers ESSENCE Magazine’s March 2012 issue. Incerpts below:
“I Think It’s A Really Special Time To Be A Woman Of Color In This Business” – Kerry Washington
- “I think it’s a really special time to be a woman of color in this business,” says cover girl Washington. “The landscape of who has the power is changing. We are in more influential positions and are able to have a say in the stories that are told. I feel very lucky to be in the business now…”
Washington says she was inspired by a certain American Idol judge. “I grew up blocks away from Jennifer Lopez. She and I went to the same Boys & Girls Club. She was like the dancer who made it big and moved to Hollywood.”
Kerry says that years later when they met, she told Lopez: “I don’t know if I would’ve taken a risk in my career if it weren’t for you.”
