There’s a lot of cool things about actress Kerry Washington that you may not know.
Many of us are familiar with Washington for her highly acclaimed role as Olivia Pope in the hit ABC-TV political drama Scandal. But did you know that she is an also a trained dancer? And that one of her instructors was a then unknown young hoofer by the name of Jennifer Lopez?
Or how ’bout this little factoid? On her mom’s side of the family, Washington is cousins with a former United States Secretary of State, retired four-star Army General Colin Powell.
Washington also makes it a habit to secure some manner of memento for every character she plays, like a particular piece of furniture, for example. Considering her current mega-popular role on the tube, wonder what it is she’s gonna lift from the fake White House?
Apart from being an absolute babe on Scandal, you might have also seen her buck naked in shows like Django Unchained, The Last King of Scotland and She Hate Me. Her only full frontal scene comes from Django Unchained when she’s dragged out of a locked wooden box in the sun. Pics are all below.
