New mommy, Kerry Washington, keeps us glued to the tube every week on her ABC drama Scandal, and although we see the 37-year-old on a regular basis, there’s a lot we don’t know about the gorgeous star, who’s actually very private.
Some may already be aware that she graduated from George Washington University in 1998; and, that she was engaged to actor David Moscow from 2004-2007. Some may even know that she’s a big supporter of President Barack Obama. But, many may not be familiar with the three facts below:
1. This is the second year in a row Washington has made People’s Most Beautiful list. She recently told the magazine, “The ‘imperfections’ are actually a gift. The reality is we all have nerves and moments of insecurity … But if I said to myself that I’m only going to show up, or speak or be visible when I’m perfect, I would never get out of bed.
2. Washington has made notable history. She’s the first black actress to lead an American network drama series since 1974, when Teresa Graves starred in the crime drama Get Christie Love!
3. The star kept her marriage to retired cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha hidden for over a week before the press found out. She even sat for magazine interviews and never mentioned she was a newlywed. They married on June 24th and kept it private until July 3rd.
