Kerry Washington: Queen of the Network and Film World

If you are like me you don’t answer your phone, email or facebook on Thursday evenings as that is Scandal Time. Kerry Washington is the Queen of the world right now with the number one television show on network tv not to mention the star of Tyler Perry’s new movie Peebles that opens on May 10th.

When asked about her success in an exclusive interview by Ebony Magazine, Kerry Washington responded:

“I’ve been really blessed,” she says. “My whole life I have been in acting classes with people who are vastly more talented than I am, so I wish I could say that it was something I did that has made me have the career that I have today. I’ve just been really blessed with opportunities, and by the grace of God I have been able to meet those opportunities when they come along. I’ve been taught to have a really strong work ethic. I come from a family where there’s a big expectation of excellence, so I’ve been able to meet that opportunity, but I can’t take credit for the opportunities.”

I love the fact that Kerry Washington appears to not have a problem with becoming a DIVA and gives credit to God for her blessings.

Read her entire interview with Ebony here and make sure you go to see Peebles this weekend.
