Inside, she dished on becoming a household name, marriage, personal style, and what she loves about vacationing.
Excerpts and more unrecognizable photo shop pics below:
On working in the industry and becoming a household name:
It’s a miracle to even work in this industry. I didn’t become an actress to be on the cover of magazines. That was always a little scary to me. What I love about acting is the craft of becoming different people and telling a story.
On playing the role Olivia Pope:
One of the things I really love about playing Olivia,” says Washington, “is the juxtaposition of her being such a powerful woman and her immeasurable vulnerability.
On Olivia Pope’s style and fashion:
There are shows where every time you see the character she’s in a different piece, and it’s like a fashion event. I didn’t want that. I wanted Olivia to be a real person. We will always buy new pieces, but on every episode we try to use at least one piece that you’ve seen before, whether it’s a suit jacket or pants or a pair of shoes.People always come up to me and say, ‘Oh, I want Olivia’s closet,’ and I’m like, ‘Me too!
On her wedding band:
I never wanted to have a ring that I would feel uncomfortable riding the subway with. My wedding band and engagement ring are the only things I can say that I wear every day. I pin them to my clothing on set. That way, I always have them with me.
On her love for hotels while vacationing:
I love everything about hotels. I love having a view that’s different. I love ordering up a movie on demand and room service and thinking, Well, I guess I’ll just have to eat this in bed! I love televisions in bathrooms, that is the best: taking a bath in salts you’d never buy for home and watching television from the tub. Heaven.
