Kerry Washington Loves To Fly

“It feels like magic to me,” she said.

Kerry Washington Went To Same Boys & Girls Club As J. Lo

Did you know Kerry Washington and Jennifer Lopez went to the same Boys and Girls Club? Washington said she and J. Lo grew up in the same neighborhood in the Bronx and she could remember watching Jennifer Lopez perform for all the kids in the Boys and Girls Club. She even remembered when J. Lo left for California and everyone was wishing her luck hoping she would make it in Hollywood so they could all say they knew her.


It seemed like after Jennifer Lopez left for the West Coast, it was Kerry on the block.

Kerry Washington Peeples Review

Kerry Washington has a new movie coming out, Peeples, where she plays Grace Peeples, a successful attorney who is surprised by her boyfriend at a family reunion. While that sounds pleasant for everyone, Washington said her parents in the movie are not too fond of her boyfriend because they don’t think he is successful enough.

While Washington said shooting the movie was fun, her favorite part seemed to be the times she spent with the cast. Since they were shooting in a house, none of the actors or actresses had trailers. Instead, everyone stayed in the house, sleeping in the rooms upstairs, hanging out in the kitchen where they made “family” dinners and singing songs with each other around a piano in the house.

“We already had a reunion and the movie isn’t even out yet,” she said.

You can see more of Kerry Washington in Scandal, which airs Thursdays on ABC, or in Peeples, which opens in theaters May 10 2013.
