Kerry Washington looked beautiful at the premiere of her new film about Anita Hill, titled Confirmation, in Los Angeles on Thursday.
The stunning 39 year old actress, who played Anita Hill in the movie, wore a floral print Dolce & Gabbana gown. She also had her hair in a chic updo with a shiny barrette, and classic black Louboutin heeled sandals.
She was joined by a pregnant Erika Christensen and fellow actors Gabrielle Union, Zendaya, Greg Kinnear, Rose McGowan, Eric Stonestreet, Zoe Lister Jones and Wendell Pierce, who plays Clarence Thomas at the screening of the film, based on real-life events.
Kerry plays law professor Hill, whose defining 1991 testimony that she had been sexually harassed by then-Supreme Court nominee Thomas opened up a national conversations about sexual harassment in the workplace. The news story put Hill in the eye of a storm while her character was questioned and attacked.
Kerry appeared to be in a great mood as she caught up with pregnant Erika, who looked glowing as she showed off her baby bump in a plunging dress.
According to Washington, “Neither one of us desired to live a life in the public eye,”Kerry Washington said of likeness between her and Anita Hill, who she plays in HBO’s new movie, Confirmation. “Privacy is really important to both of us, but because of the circumstances of our lives, our private lives have become public and that’s not something that I relish. It’s definitely not something that she does.”
“Confirmation” airs on April 16. What do you think of Kerry’s look?
