Kerry Washington gets sexy on the June 2013 cover of ELLE magazine. The 36-year-old actress, recently posed for her first fashion-magazine spread. The 'Scandal' star opened up with Elle to discuss her current success, the career path she would have chosen, playing dress up on the red carpet and what she envision her future to look like as a child. Washington is also starring in Tyler Perry’s upcoming movie Peeples, which hits theaters this Friday.

On the career Washington thought she'd pursue: "I imagined I'd be a clinical psychologist, with a focus on how performance shapes identity. I'd figure out ways to use role-playing in the healing of people."

On her current success: "I'm the luckiest broad in Hollywood now. To be the lead actor on Scandal and to be in the highest-earning Tarantino movie- I don't get to ask for more."

When asked if as a girl she thought she'd ever consider modeling or becoming a film actress:

"I was not that girl. I was a kooky theater kid, silly and goofy and academic."

On getting red-carpet ready:

"I found out I enjoy the process. All these people show up at my house, they all have kits, someone has dresses. And it's like, Let's have fun. It's not all about me. We're able to create stories on the red carpet."
