May 7th, 2013 4:10pm EDT

Kerry Washington Django Unchained star Kerry Washington has done her first major magazine spread for the June issue of ELLE.

The sexy actress, who also star's on ABC's hit show Scandal, showed her curves in styles by Marc Jacobs and opened up about her success.

"I'm the luckiest broad in Hollywood now," she says of her recent success. "To be the lead actor on Scandal and to be in the highest-earning Tarantino movie -- I don't get to ask for more."

Washington, who stars in Tyler Perry upcoming Peeples, says she never thought she'd become an actress.

"I imagined I'd be a clinical psychologist, with a focus on how performance shapes identity," she says. "I'd figure out ways to use role-playing in the healing of people."

Kerry adds that she never even dreamed of a career in showbiz.

"I was not that girl," she says. "I was a kooky theater kid, silly and goofy and academic."
