In her cover story she reveals how she wants the world to remember Olivia Pope as well as confessing that she live tweeted during the labor of her daughter Isabella saying, “I tweeted in the very early stages of my labor. I figured that if I went completely silent on social media, then people would know I was in the hospital!”

Ans when asked how Olivia will be remember Kerry responded by saying:

“I hope people remember her as a complicated, fully realized human being; she’s not a stereotype and she’s not an accessory. I think that it’s important for women to know, in film and in TV and in life, that you can be the lead of your own story. I hope she’s remembered for that, as somebody who is the driving force of her own life.”
