Kerry Washington On Women’s Health To Promote Django Unchained
Kerry Washington is on the cover of December’s Women’s Health magazine which hit newsstands November 20th. Her career is on fire after becoming the first black female lead on a network TV drama since 1974 in her ABC show Scandal.
In the magazine, she does a multi-page spread and talks about what she would be doing if she wasn’t an actress, and her role in next months highly anticipated flick Django Unchained.
If She Wasn’t An 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.
Her Favorite Snacks: 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.
For those interested, she also talks about her workout routine extensively at WomensHealthMag.com
Scandal co-star Darby Stanchfield also chimed in on Kerry Washington:
“She thinks about everybody… After shooting a day in five-inch heels, my calves and arches were splitting. She sent me a contact for her masseuse and was like, ‘You’ve got to get that worked out.’”
