The Scandal Actress looks stunning as usual as she covers the August edition of U.S. Vanity Fair magazine. She also talked a bit about her role on Scandal and how white women really want her role, see excerpt below;
'One of the most profound things for me about the show is the number of white women of all ages who come up to me and say: "I want to be Olivia Pope". It's especially profound in a place like South Africa. It's called The Fixer over there and it's just started its second season.
The fact that white women can see this woman of colour as an aspirational character is revolutionary, I think, in the medium of television. I don't think white women would feel that way about Olivia if her identify as a woman, period, wasn't first in their minds.'
