Kerry Washington Calls Out Magazine For Photoshopping Her Cover
You know who's a perfect specimen of a human being? Kerry Washington.
You know who's so not here for Adweek photoshopping that perfection? Also, Kerry Washington.
On Tuesday, in a long Facebook post, the "Scandal" star wrote she loved Adweek and was proud of the interview she did with them. But she also said she felt "weary" when she saw the cover image of herself she believes was obviously photoshopped.

On Tuesday night, Adweek Editorial Director James Cooper released a statement in response to Kerry. According to Refinery29, Cooper said,
Kerry Washington is a class act. We are honored to have her grace our pages. To clarify, we made minimal adjustments, solely for the cover's design needs. We meant no disrespect, quite the opposite. We are glad she is enthusiastic about the piece and appreciate her honest comments.
Cooper also tweeted a statement, claiming the only editing done to Kerry was volume added to her hair.
Hmm. I'm no Photoshop expert, but it kind of looks to me like there was more going on than just hair editing.
The actual interview with Adweek is a good read for all the Kerry fans out there, and it includes a look into Kerry's upcoming role as Anita Hill in "Confirmation." The film airs on HBO on April 16.
In the meantime, keep slaying just the way you are, Kerry!
