Kerry Washington is one of the most beautiful actresses in Hollywood, but not everyone feels her beauty was captured in her latest magazine cover photo. The star of ABC political drama "Scandal" is nearly unrecognizable on the cover of the December issue of Lucky, and it's unclear what exactly was done to make her look so different.
The cover immediately sparked reactions from fans, with most questioning why Washington was so excessively photoshopped. Her eyes appear smaller than usual, her hair is undone, her complexion looks more bronzed than usual, and the shape of her face looks different.
“Why would they subject beauty and perfection to photoshop?? Weird [sic].” One reader asked.

Though opinions on the cover are generally negative, Washington seemed to be happy, tweeting a photo of the cover along with the caption, “Whoo hoo.”
Meanwhile, the 36-year-old stunner is going to be a mom, it was revealed in October, after weeks of speculation prior to the announcement. Washington stirred pregnancy rumors this month after she began wearing larger clothes that completely hid her slim frame.
At this year’s Emmy Awards, "Scandal" fans began speculating that Washington was hiding something when she wore a Marchesa gown that hid her stomach and placed emphasis on her bust line.
Now, sources tell Us Weekly that the actress is five months along with her first child. In July, Washington shocked fans when she married San Fracisco 49ers cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha in Idaho. The two had been dating secretly for a year.
