Kerry Washington: ‘I Didn’t Grow Up Thinking I Was Pretty’

Apparently, Kerry Washington didn’t always believe that she’s the flawless and ethereal creature that we know her to be today.
In her latest interview with Marie Claire, which was conducted by none other than Girls creator Lena Dunham, the Scandal star opens up about growing up believing she wasn’t as pretty as the other girls around her. Though Dunham gushes about Washington being her “girl crush” and how wonderful the actress is in gifting her “chocolate and a candle that smelled like alpine heaven” during their encounter, Washington says it hasn’t always been easy being, well, this awesome.
