Actress Kerry Washington is our Woman Crush Wednesday this week. The 37-year-old working mum only gave birth five months ago but is already back on the red carpet showing off her svelte frame. Since her first major role in an independent film called Our Song in 2000 Washington has starred in blockbusters such as Save The Last Dance, Ray, Mr & Mrs Smith, The Last King of Scotland, Fantastic Four and Django Unchained. However, it was her portrayal as Olivia Pope in the hit US drama Scandal that cemented her status on the A List…
Least likely to…dumb it down. Washington received university offers from both Yale University and Dartmouth College but turned them down.
Impress her with…singing. Whilst at school Washington was a member of a nine-girl acappella singing group called Triple Trio..
Mention…Jamie Foxx. Washington has played his wife twice. First in Ray and then in Django Unchained..
And another thing…Washington was back at work filming for her role as Olivia Pope in Scandal a mere three months after giving birth to her first daughter…dedication!
