Kerry Washington barely misses looking ‘Scandal-ous’ on the cover and pages of the October Issue of Glamour Magazine.
We know that the movie star secretly got married to Nigerian-American NFL Player Nnamdi Asomugha in June 2013 and of course that makes her officially Nigerian.
See excerpts from her interview below:
On being tight lipped about her relationships
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. I was on the cover of a bridal magazine [InStyle Weddings, in 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.”
On managing to keep her wedding a secret
Absolutely! 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.
On pulling off her wedding with no press
[Laughs.] 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.
