Kerry Washington graces the cover of ARISE’s first issue of 2013. Toning down the glitz and glamour, the 36 year-old actress opts for a more natural look instead.

In an exclusive interview, the star of Quentin Tarantino’s slavery-era drama Django Unchained reveals the emotional experience of filming Django, how she got the Ugandan accent down for The Last King Of Scotland and what it was like to get a second season of “Scandal” and retain her title as the only African-American female in a lead TV role: “I felt proud of America, ” says Washington. “I felt proud of us as a society that we allowed the face of this show to be something that we don’t normally see in this role.”
