There are more sexy shots in the spread, but the real interesting part is Kerry's interview talking about motherhood and playing Anita Hill in the upcoming HBO biopic Confirmation, which she also executive produced like a total boss.

In a surprising reveal, Kerry says that playing Olivia Pope made her feel more confident about being a mom:

"Even though Olivia Pope has obviously made the decision that she is not a mom, playing her made me feel like I could be a mom. Because she knows there's always another way—there's always a way to fix it, there's always a way to solve it, to win. And I feel like playing her made me feel like, All right, I can do it. I will figure out how to juggle it all."

Kerry, we know you got it handled.

The 39-year-old diplomatically talks politics without naming names:

"I'm a person who's always been politically active and passionate about people's rights. I marched against the [2004] Republican Convention. And as my career has expanded, it's been important for me to not stifle that voice. Because you want to be popular, you want people to hire you, and I have to make sure I don't do it less because I'm an actor."

Her passion for politics obviously extends to women's issues, which made producing the Anita Hill movie so important to her:

"This moment was so important because it created a language around women being able to protect themselves. The behavior that Anita Hill described was going on in a lot of offices throughout the country, and most people didn't think they were doing anything wrong. But this created awareness around that and around the need for women's voices to be heard in our public spaces, both testifying before Congress and sitting on the committee. It really was such a huge cultural shift."

Finally, she praises Shonda Rhimes for being the ultimate inspiration:

"She's been such an amazing resource, as a mom, and as a working mom…I am on one show and I have one kid, and she has three shows and three kids."

Hey, we bet Kerry could do it too.

Well this explains that awkward TV interview from yesterday

angelina jolie talks syria

On Tuesday, Angelina Jolie-Pitt stepped up as a special envoy for the United Nations as she returned to the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon to comment on the Syrian refugee situation. Talk about being an inspiration!

Not only did Miz Jolie-Pitt give an emotional press conference where she asked the world's leaders to help millions of displaced people, but she also reunited with a girl named Hala and her family — whom she had met on her first visit to the region back in 2014.

A source revealed that the 40-year-old joined the family for dinner where they ate, talked, and colored together. Aww!

Surprisingly, Hala opened up to AJP that she was eager to return to Syria — mainly to be able to place flowers on her mother's grave. We're not crying, you're crying!

Not to mention, her father was also ready to return home and has hopes to gain a vocational skill to use before they get back.

And it seems that this poignant meet up inspired some parts of Angelina's address (below). She noted:

Let Sia Be The Wind Beneath Your Wings With An AH-Mazing Performance Of Bird Set Free On Jimmy Kimmel Live!

| Filed under: TV NewsMusic MinuteJimmy KimmelSiaLate Night TV

Sia is flying higher than ever with her latest album This Is Acting, which is made up completely of tracks that she originally wrote for other artists!

And the Elastic Heart songstress continued to soar when she stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Monday night for an uplifting performance of Bird Set Free!

Joined by the typical Sia dancer donning a two-tone wig and a flesh colored unitard, the singer belted out her powerhouse vocals from a platform towards the back of the stage.

BTW, Bird Set Free flew around a bunch of coops before it returned to its original writer. It was first written for Pitch Perfect 2, then turned down and sent to Rihanna, then turned down again and sent to Adele — but ultimately landed back in Sia's nest!

And we're glad it did, because no one can sing the track quite like she can! Check out the show-stopping performance (above)!
