Actress Kerry Washington (Scandal
) covers the October 2013 issue of Glamour
magazine. Kerry's wearing a Dior dress on the cover and a diamond ring by Van Cleef & Arpels. In the interview, Kerry talks about her secret marriage to San Francisco 49ers cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha. She also talks about learning how to work the red carpet to boost her career.
On Her Surprise Marriage in June
: "Absolutely! I'm walking around in the world with my ring. And when people say congratulations, I say thank you. But I'm going to continue to not talk about it and just let it unfold."
On Learning to Work the Red Carpet
: "It started out as, like, Good-Student Kerry. OK, I'm going to admit this: There were a couple of actresses whom I felt were having the upper hand careerwise - because they knew how to work that red carpet. I was like, 'I'm missing a really important tool. If I am the CEO of the Kerry Washington Corporation, my marketing department is really lax.' So I sort of developed a new character: Red-Carpet Kerry."
On Managing to Keep Her Wedding a Secret From the Press
: "I don't want to sound smug about it...but the point is to do what's best for me. I have girlfriends in this business who talk about their personal lives, and it works for them, and I love it. But not for me."
