J. Lo Taught Kerry Washington How To Dance

Before Kerry Washington became Olivia Pope, the new mom was acting in films like “Save The Last Dance” where she displayed some of her best dance moves. Little did we know, Kerry learned how to dance from fellow Bronx-native Jennifer Lopez! Kerry opened up about her boom-kack roots during an interview with Bobbi Brown, Yahoo’s Beauty Editor in Chief.

“You wouldn’t know it from my build, but Jennifer taught me how to dance. And I remember when she left the Boys club because she was leaving New York to go to LA to try and make it big and we were all like, ‘Oh my gosh.’”

Kerry also added,

“It is really interesting for me being an actress, because I feel like I have a responsibility to myself and to my family to have gone through this miraculous journey of pregnancy and birth and all of that and be healthy and sane and present and loving to myself and to my family. And then at the same time I have this responsibility to Olivia Pope, to be that character and maintain that essence of that character even if my belly is ever expanding.”

In related news, Shonda Rhimes’ hit show “How To Get Away With Murder” pulled in strong ratings for the second week in a row. The murder mystery hit 11 million viewers last week (episode 2) following the 14 million viewers that tuned in for the premiere episode.  We’re here for it!
