KERRY’S SECRET WEAPON
KERRY Washington credits Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo (right) with giving her the advice that has kept her at the top of her game in five seasons of Scandal.
“I ran into Ellen at an event in New York before we started our first season of Scandal, and Ellen said, ‘I want you to think like an athlete’,” Washington recalls.
“She talked to me for hours about the rigour of it. You need to eat like an athlete. You need to sleep like an athlete.
“This is an instrument. I have to be in tune to do this.”
