After seven seasons of Scandal and playing one of the most powerful and history-making female leads on television, Kerry Washington is ready to return to the Broadway stage in American Son (opening November 4th). The notoriously private Bronx-native opens up to Marie Claire US‘ November 2018 issue (photography by Thomas Whiteside) about how she defines power, her special connect to theater, how Shonda Rhimes changed her outlook on Hollywood, her mission with for Times Up, and what her children teach her.
Kerry Washington wears Versace dress on the cover, styled by Solange Franklin Reed with hair and makeup by Takisha and Carola Gonzalez, manicurist Tom Bachik.
On how she defines power: “Honestly, I think about power as more of an internal phenomenon. I tend to think about empowerment for myself so that I have the courage and ability to act on the ideologies and priorities that resonate with me. I’ve always wanted to cultivate a sense of empowerment within myself without seeking approval from outside sources.”
On her work with Times Up: “Our priority has been to not reinvent the wheel, to not feel like, ‘Oh we’re going to come in and do what nobody has been able to do,’ but rather to acknowledge that there are so many communities of powerful women committed to advocacy, and our job is to leverage whatever power we have to support that work, grow that work, shed light on that work.”
On how Shonda Rhimes changed her vision of what power looked like in Hollywood: “I didn’t feel like I had to twist myself into some other understanding of what black womanness is supposed to look like, because Shonda [Rhimes, Scandal creator and showrunner] got me, and so I could get closer and closer to my truth because I wasn’t worried about going to work on Monday and somebody being like, ‘Why would you talk about that?’ Just her existence and working with her so intimately changed the idea of what power looked like in this business.”
On her special connection to theater: “The last time I did theater, it completely transformed my life. That’s where I met my husband.” (source)

Selena Gomez breaks her silence after removing herself from the Tabloid Industrial Complex. Inside the issue that will hit newsstands on September 25th, the most followed person on Instagram discusses her new album, working at a global anti-human-trafficking nonprofit, supporting Demi Lovato, and much more.
Selena wears Coach on the October covers of Elle US photographed by Mariano Vivanco with styling direction by Anna Trevelyan. Hair and makeup by Chris McMillan and Hung Vanngo, manicurist Tom Bachik.
On supporting Demi Lovato: “All I’m saying is, I reached out personally. I didn’t do a public thing. I didn’t want to. I…I love her. I’ve known her since I was seven. So…it’s…that’s what I’ll say.”
On turning 26: “It’s peaceful. It’s weird. The moment I turned 26, I felt 26. Right now, I feel very sure of where I am. I don’t feel erratic or emotionally unstable. Or like I can’t handle my emotions, like I used to. It’s kind of understanding myself a little more. By all means I don’t have myself figured out. But it feels good.”
On the meaning behind ‘Flawless,’ a song on her upcoming album: “Meaning through all your imperfections, you’re flawless. You’re not striving. It’s me encouraging a younger version of myself. Even when you’re imperfect, even when you’re feeling worthless, you are flawless. It’s a song I’m going to sing for the rest of my life.” (source)

Kim Kardashian opens up to Elle US in a revealing interview discussing everything from her relationship with Kanye West to using a gestational carrier to the whether or not she’ll have more children, and much more.
On caring less about what people think of her: “At the beginning, I looked at people’s opinions. Now I’m content in my life, and I don’t care. The Things that make me happy now are different. But I swear you have to be born for this. It’s not for everyone. I know I can handle it.”
On why four children would be her maximum: “I don’t think I could handle more than that. My time is spread really thin. And I think it’s important that in all couples, the mom give the husband as much attention as the kids.”
On using a gestational carrier: “I hated being pregnant. But as much as I hated it, I still wished I could have done it on my own. The control is hard at the beginning. Once you let that go, it’s the best experience. I would recommend surrogacy for anybody.”
On her relationship with Kanye: “He’s taught me to have more of an opinion. I’ve taught him to be a bit more calm or cautious. We’re a good balance.”
