Kerry Washington for Emmy Magazine. ‘I Wasn’t Interested in Being Famous’ The former Scandal star (Olivia Pope) graces this issue. The beauty is wearing a white dress and she has been photographed by Sarah McColgan. She dishes on her decision to have a Hollywood career.
“[I wanted to be a college professor] or a shrink,” the 36-year-old actress revealed. “I had a real curiousity about how people became the people they are.”
When discussing the reasons why acting wasn’t for her, Washington answered,
”I thought that to be an actress, you had to want to be famous. And that wasn’t something I was interested in.”
“I realized there were lots of people who made a living as actors who may never be on the cover of a magazine, but had fulfilling careers. And I decided, ‘I’m going to go for it.’ But I never really saw myself as someone who would be that girl on the cover of anything,” she added.
