Keri Washington turns up the heat in her latest magazine spread. As she covers Maxim Australia’s July 2013 mag, the 36 year old teases with a little boob action and her notorious sexy pout. In the issue, on sale now, Kerry dishes on her role in Django Unchained and explains why educating African-Americans on their history is more important than ever. —Ashley Travers

On Django Unchained:
“I wanted to be a part of this incredible project that represents a painful part of US history but also creates a hero out of it. There were people who fought for freedom and rebelled but we don’t hear those stories. This is obviously not a documentary or a true story but it’s exciting to watch Jamie become this badarse cowboy hero.”

On working with Quentin Tarantino:
“Quentin was always saying to Jamie, ‘Don’t forget, this is a love story.’  I think one of the great things about Quentin is that he’s so complicated as a human being. He is so excited about these exploitation films and yet so believes in the real humanity of people. He is so into blood and gore but such a romantic. These seemingly contradictory ideas that he embodies so fluidly are why his films are so great – because he’s paying attention to both of those aspects.”

On educating people about African-American history:
“We don’t deal openly with the reality of what was done. Partly because it’s so uncomfortable. It’s so horrific. It would take a director like Tarantino, who’s not afraid of that level of violence, to even tell the story. It was that bad. We tend to think, ‘No, that’s just sci-fi fantasy sh-t.’ We all should have seen this coming, though. When you kill off Hitler in a movie, your next project is going to be this.”
