Kerry Washington, 37, Talks Insecurities

resizedimageKerry Washington says she still gets nervous. The Scandal star (Olivia Pope) also still feels insecure and does not in any way wish to be perfect. The Ray star is waiting the arrival of her first child with her husband Nnamdi Asomugha is on a regular basis called one of the beautiful and talented women in Hollywood.

The 37-year-old actress told

”I think it looks that way. But the reality is we all have nerves and moments of insecurity … But If I said to myself that I’m only going to show up, or speak or be visible when I’m perfect, I would never get out of bed. I [show up] to be of service and to be used for something greater. It’s about knowing what I am in this moment is what I need to be, and going for it. The ‘imperfections’ are actually the gift.”

Washington says that her own mother is beautiful but also says that she wasn’t raised to focus on her appearance. She said:

”I came into beauty and fashion much later in life — like after college and when I had to walk red carpets. I became a student of fashion and beauty.”

She added:

”You can learn how to embrace your own unique beauty, celebrate your unique gifts and then have confidence around them.”
