Kerry Washington’s 2016 Adweek cover didn’t thrill the actress.
She expressed her unhappiness on Instagram.
She said it looks very different from what she sees when she looks in the mirror. “I just felt weary,” Washington wrote on Instagram. “It felt strange to look at a picture of myself that is so different from what I look like when I look in the mirror. It’s an unfortunate feeling.”
Adweek’s editorial director at the time said the magazine made “minimal adjustments.”
“Kerry Washington is a class act. We are honored to have her grace our pages,” James Cooper said in a statement. “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.”
