Kerry Washington Surprised by Her Success




Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Drama, ABC, Features

Kerry Washington on 'Lucky'Kerry Washington thinks her success is a "miracle."

The Scandal star, who is expecting her first child with her NFL star husband of four months, Nnamdi Asomugha, was terrified of becoming famous but she decided to become an actress because she loves telling stories.

"It's a miracle to even work in this industry. I didn't become an actress to be on the cover of magazines. That was always a little scary to me. What I love about acting is the craft of becoming different people and telling a story," the 36-year-old beauty told the December/January issue of Lucky magazine.

Despite being considered one of the most beautiful and fashion savvy women in Hollywood, the New York-born star insists it takes a lot of work to make her look good and she doesn't compare herself to other actresses: "Even for me, I think it's a real danger to compare yourself to someone on a television show. I know that I am not going to look like [Scandal character] Olivia when I wake up and go to the bathroom at 4 o'clock in the morning. On the set, it's somebody's job to follow me around all day with spackle."
