What is better than spending a night watching “Scandal”? Talking with the star of the show Kerry Washington!
She gave us a call today to talk about something that is a very topic to her, the importance of voting, but it wasn’t all business while the had her on.
A few weeks ago Washington stunned everyone with the dress she was wearing on the red carpet at the Emmys, and we needed to know how she was able to pull its off, “Let’s be honest, I had a team of professionals helping me look that fabulous. I did not wake up like that as Beyonce says.”
And even though she was in the third trimester of her pregnancy and probably wasn’t feeling her best, there were definitely perks, “The best part (of being pregnant at the Emmys) was that you don’t have to wait in line for anything.”
We also needed to know if she has any of the same habits of her on screen persona Olivia Pope, “I don’t drink a ton of red wine, but I am obsessed with popcorn.”
Something that is near and dear to Washington’s heart is how Important voting is, “It is so important, I think our right to vote is precious and we take it for granted. We forget that people fought a war for that right.”

Lastly, Washington was also pleased to learn that she has a very close connection to the show, “We’re basically in-laws.”
You’re going to need to listen to the interview to see what that connection is though.
