Kerry Washington Said Jennifer Lopez Taught Her To Dance
“You wouldn’t know it from my build, but Jennifer taught me how to dance,” Kerry Washington told Yahoo Beauty Editor in Chief Bobbi Brown about the “Booty” singer.
The “Scandal” star and Jennifer Lopez grew up together in the Bronx and, well, Washington took away some key moves from that friendship.
“I remember when she left the Boys Club because she was leaving New York to go to L.A. to try and make it big, and we were all like, ‘Oh my gosh,’” the 37-year-old actress recalled.
Guess Kerry was “from the block” too…
Washington has also taken on new life roles recently, like marrying NFL Oakland Raiders star Nnamdi Asomugha in June 2013 and giving birth to their first child, daughter Isabelle, in April. The super-private actress was able to pull off both life-altering events secretly.
“It is really interesting for me being an actress,” she told Yahoo. “Because I feel like I have a responsibility to myself and to my family to have gone through this miraculous journey of pregnancy and birth and all of that and be healthy and sane and present and loving to myself and to my family.
While she feels a deep devotion and dedication to her family, Washington is also aware of the huge undertaking she’s got in living up to Olivia Pope fans’ expectations, even while pregnant.
“And then at the same time I have this responsibility to Olivia Pope, to be that character and maintain the essence of that character even if my belly is ever expanding,” she added.
We can’t even imagine Kerry droppin’ that thang low for a playa lol
