Kerry Washington: Actress Talks About Cover Not Looking Like She Does.April 6, 2016
Actress Kerry Washington is an actress that is known for many different roles she steps into in Hollywood that are but not limited to the 'Fantastic Four' series and tv series 'Scandal'.
However, still, everyone is beautiful in their own right or every right and Kerry Washington's beauty is uncanny. With that said, the actress who could easily take up modeling if she wanted has graced many covers of many different publications and starred in many commercials for different products on television.
I must say that throughout her career, Washington is known for being outspoken when she thinks its something worthy to speak about. The actress was yet to speak none compliant with a cover shoot though or that is until now.
Just recently, Washington graced the cover of ADWEEK and it was a beautiful one but even I noticed something seemed a little off. Washington notice and felt the same way and released a great response about how different she look in the cover. This is what Washington had to say via her official Facebook page:
"So... You know me. I'm not one to be quiet about a magazine cover. I always celebrate it when a respected publication invites me to grace their pages. It's an honor. And a privilege. And ADWEEK is no exception.
I love ADWEEK. It's a publication I appreciate. And learn from. I've long followed them on Twitter. And when they invited me to do a cover, I was excited and thrilled. And the truth is, I'm still excited. I'm proud of the article. And I like some of the inside images a great deal. But, I have to be honest... I was taken aback by the cover.
Look, I'm no stranger to Photoshopping. It happens a lot. In a way, we have become a society of picture adjusters - who doesn't love a filter?!? And I don't always take these adjustments to task but I have had the opportunity to address the impact of my altered image in the past and I think it's a valuable conversation.
Yesterday, however, I just felt weary. It felt strange to look at a picture of myself that is so different from what I look like when I look in the mirror. It's an unfortunate feeling.
That being said. You all have been very kind and supportive. Also, as I've said, I'm very proud of the article.
There are a few things we discussed in the interview that were left out. Things that are important to me (like: the importance of strong professional support and my awesome professional team) and I've been thinking about how to discuss those things with anyone who is interested, in an alternate forum. But until then... Grab this week's ADWEEK. Read it. I hope you enjoy it. And thank you for being patient with me while I figured out how to post this in a way that felt both celebratory and honest.
What do you think? Do you agree with Washington's statement? Let it be known by commenting below.
