Kerry Washington is embracing her roots. The 40-year-old Scandal star attended the Bronx Children’s Museum Gala on Tuesday night in NYC where she opened up about the importance of supporting the institution in her old neighborhood.
“This is really a passion project of my mother,” Washington told ET. “She has spent her entire life working to improve lives for children in the Bronx myself included. I was a kid who benefited from her hard work in the Bronx… she's just a phenomenal… I mean the Bronx was the only borough without a children's museum and thanks to the hard work of everyone here, my mother included, that legacy is ending, so I'm proud to be here to support the Bronx and to support children, being that I was a kid from the Bronx and, you know, have children of my own it's just a very important night.”
Washington reflected on her fun-filled childhood in the Bronx, saying, “We spent our whole summers at the pool at Jaime Towers where I grew up, but also Jennifer Lopez was my dance teacher at the Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club in the Bronx, so Jennifer was one of the big girls… I remember when she left to go off to L.A. to try to make it big and obviously that left a big impression on me, so I just think it's such a special place.”
Now the ABC star leads a glamorous life, one with red carpets like the one at the Met Gala on Monday. She attended both events with her hubby, Nnamdi Asomugha, as her date.
“What was the most surprising thing from last night? Um, I saw my husband jumping into selfies that doesn't usually happen,” Washington dished about her man. “That was very surprising.”
Washington also opened up about the upcoming season finale of Scandal, revealing that it’s the best the most unexpected yet.
“I'm going to be completely honest with you, when we shot -- this is totally honest -- when we shot the final scene for the last episode of the season,” the actress said. “I had goosebumps cause it's such a like it's such a crazy turn. I never saw it coming, and I'm crazy excited about next season cause, like, I had no clue that this would happen at the end of our season.”
