Kerry Washington on ‘Lakeview Terrace’

Kerry Washington says she’s never seen a black woman on screen like the one she plays in “Lakeview Terrace.”

“I loved the idea of playing this kind of Berkeley graduate, environmentalist, crunchy granola, progressive, open-minded young woman because I have a lot of girlfriends like that, and I have a lot of that in me,” she says. “I think she really represents a new kind of young woman. I think sometimes Hollywood has a hard time dealing with hybrids. You know, we kind of want to go, ‘This is what black people are like and this is what white people are like or this is what women are like and this is what men are like.’ I think that we’re moving into a world where all of those lines are getting more fluid and more movable.”
