First Viola Davis and now Kerry Washington. The ‘Scandal’ actress has dared to go Au naturel for her Allure magazine cover.
In a rare photo opt, Kerry Washington and husband Nnamdi Asomugha get cutesy at Vanity Fair Oscar party. Kerry and her former NFL hubby were just too adorable while snappy photos in the Vanity Fair photo booth over the weekend. The photo is a treat considering the couple are rarely photographed together.
The beautiful Kerry Washington visited Jimmy Kimmel Live, Thursday night, following Scandal season 4 premiere to chop it up. The actress, whose pregnant with her first child, discussed how she remain healthy while pregnant and being very excited about becoming a mom. She also talked about the highly anticipated season premiere, attending the Oscars and much more.

This is certainly an interesting statement to make. When I first read that Kerry Washington would have rejected the role of Olivia Pope on popular ABC drama “Scandal” if the President had been black I immediately thought how much backlash that statement would garner. In fact, Washington was previously in a long term relationship and engaged to fellow actor David Moscow, who also happens to be white. During her relationship with Moscow, Washington faced criticism in the black community for dating outside of her race so with a statement like the one she made alarms went off.
The President is actually played by Tony Goldwyn (pictured above with Washington). He is engaged in a passionate, heart wrenching love affair with Olivia Pope, his mistress.
The truth is, Washington’s statement shouldn’t bring about any controversy . She goes on to explain her stance on why she wouldn’t have done the show with a black President.
Kerry Washington has been globe trotting for the release of ‘Django Unchained’ but what we’ve all been paying attention to is her style. We’re absolutely loving it.
Here she is at the Monday night premiere in Berlin, Germany. She’s wearing a two-tone natural white and beige patch work gown. Just beautiful. And we’re loving the head head piece.
