Kerry Washington Spices Things Up On The Cover Of Maxim Australia

Kerry Washington Maxim

Kerry Washington is sure to leave a few guys with their mouth’s hanging open with her new Maxim Australia cover.  She’s featured in the July 2013 issue of the mag and the Hollywood starlet is super sexy with red lipstick while dressed in an open, revealing blazer and boy shorts for the cover.

In the issue, which names her Hollywood’s Sexiest Drama Queen, she discusses the movie Django and why she chose to play the role of Broomhilda.  She also talks about why it’s so important to educated people about African-American history.

Read the highlights below:

What attracted you to the role of Broomhilda?

“I wanted to be a part of this incredible project that represents a painful part of US history but also creates a hero out of it. There were people who fought for freedom and rebelled but we don’t hear those stories. This is obviously not a documentary or a true story but it’s exciting to watch Jamie become this badarse cowboy hero.”


Revenge tale that it is, there’s also a love story at the core of Django.

“Quentin was always saying to Jamie, “Don’t forget, this is a love story.” I think one of the great things about Quentin is that he’s so complicated as a human being. He is so excited about these exploitation films and yet so believes in the real humanity of people. He is so into blood and gore but such a romantic. These seemingly contradictory ideas that he embodies so fluidly are why his films are so great – because he’s paying attention to both of those aspects.”


Do you reckon watching this is a decent way to educate people about African-American history?

“We don’t deal openly with the reality of what was done. Partly because it’s so uncomfortable. It’s so horrific. It would take a director like Tarantino, who’s not afraid of that level of violence, to even tell the story. It was that bad. We tend to think, “No, that’s just sci-fi fantasy shit.” We all should have seen this coming, though. When you kill off Hitler in a movie, your next project is going to be this.”

You can read the full feature in Maxim Australia, on newsstands now.
