|Kerry Washington gets up close and personal with her Django Unchained co-star Jamie Foxx on the cover of Los Angeles Confidential magazine’s December/January issue, out on newsstands now.
Here’s what the 35-year-old actress and 44-year-old actor had to share:
Kerry on their natural chemistry: “What you see with Jamie and me—it’s rare. But it comes from a whole lot of crying, a whole lot of sharing, a whole lot of blood, sweat, and tears.”
Jamie on when he first met Kerry?: “I remember exactly when I first saw you. You were driving up in your little green car. ‘Little Miss Do-good. Keepin’ the community clean so we can stay a little longer on the earth,’ and I’m thinking, Here comes somebody!”
Kerry on adversity for black actors: “My grandmother was a maid on Park Avenue and her grandmother was a slave. The expectations about what’s possible for African Americans is always shifting and always growing, but Jamie’s right: If you’re black in Hollywood, you have to be twice as good and work twice as hard as everybody else.”
