Kerry Washington Covers The December 2012 Issue Of Women’s Health Magazine

By  |  1 Comment

Actress Kerry Washington is covering the December 2012 issue of Women’s Health magazine. The Scandal and Django Unchained star graces the cover in a tuxedo style blazer and panties. Inside, she talks about preparing for her role in Django Unchained, what would she be doing if she wasn’t an actress and her choice of junk food. Below are some highlights:

On preparing for her role in Django Unchained:

“One of the things that I really love most about my job is the research part of it….So, I studied a lot. It’s kind of hard to articulate the level of preparation that we all had to do for this film because so much of it was emotional and psychological preparation. It’s hard to talk about because we all had to go into a part of American history that is so dark and complicated and fraught with the past sins of this country.”

On being a teacher if she wasn’t a successful actress:

“If I wasn’t an actress, I would probably be a teacher. Either an elementary school teacher or a yoga teacher. Both of which I did when I was living in New York pursuing a career in acting. I liked doing both of those things very much. I think it would surprise people to know that what I really wanted to do as a child was to be the woman in the Shamu show at Sea World. And the big joke in my family is that I started taking Marine Biology and I was like, forget the whale, I’ll just be on stage by myself.”

On her choice of junk food:

“I am not a vegan, but I like vegan protein shakes. I mix them with coconut water instead of regular water. That’s my secret to having them taste better. I love popcorn. I could live on popcorn. The writers of Scandal have made my character Olivia Pope have a similar relationship with popcorn. But I don’t mind because I get to eat popcorn at work.”
