The world may know a few more intimate details about the life of Kerry Washington, but the Scandal star still plans on keeping her personal life private.
During a recent interview with Glamour magazine, the actress opened up about why she keeps her personal business to herself. “I learned through experience that it doesn’t work for me to talk about my personal life. I’ve had earlier times in my career when I did talk about it,” she explained.
“I was on the cover of a bridal magazine (InStyle Weddings, 2005, when Washington was engaged to actor David Moscow). But I couldn’t just turn around and say, ‘I only want to talk about the good stuff, but not the bad stuff.’ So I just thought, OK, no more,” Kerry told the publication.
Washington secretly tied the knot in June to 49ers player, Nnamdi Asomugha in Blaine County, Idaho. And although we all know who she is married to, she will still remain tight-lipped.
“I’m walking around in the world with my ring. And when people say congratulations, I say thank you. But I’m going to continue to not talk about it and just let it unfold,” Washington explained.
“I don’t want to sound smug about it…but the point is to do what’s best for me. I have girlfriends in this business who talk about their personal lives, and it works for them, and I love it. But not for me,” she added.
Washington graces the cover of Glamour’s October issue in a gorgeous red-orange Dior dress, paired with Christian Louboutin pumps.
