Kerry Washington on the Cannes Film Festival: "Walking up the steps of the Palais in a gown, day after day. It's terrifying. Have you ever seen how scared everyone looks when they're walking up those steps? We're all afraid we're going to fall ... [I]f you've ever noticed in pictures at Cannes, when everyone gets to the top, they wave at the crowd. It's really because we're all just so happy we made it."
