Kerry Washington Has A Popcorn Addiction Problem!

Kerry Washington and her Scandal character Olivia Pope don’t have too much in common, except for one thing – their love for popcorn!

“In season one I thought that there were cameras in my apartment… because I sit alone at home and eat popcorn. I was like, ‘Shonda [Rhimes] knows, she knows what I do when I’m alone,’” the 40-year-old actress revealed while making an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday (February 10). “I just read a script and got scared that she’s watching me or psychic.”

“I love it so much. If I have to eat popcorn the whole time I’m thrilled,” Kerry added. “It’s a problem. I may have to go into rehab.”

During her interview, Kerry also talked about her love for Alicia Keys, living in New York and discussed her old headshot.

While speaking to a group of women at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival‘s annual Women in Film Brunch co-hosted by Refinery29 on Monday (January 23), the 39-year-old Scandal star told guests that progress is going to take “courage on all of our parts.”

“Sometimes the people who are in charge of those rooms, they want us to feel lucky to be in the room. And we are because we’re all really blessed to be doing what we do…but that doesn’t mean that I don’t get to bring other people with me,” Kerry expressed (via NYDaily). “Being alone in the room is exhausting…you feel like you have to stand up for the entire gender or race. A woman who shouts out other women? That’s just something we all have to do.”

Kerry also talked about making it a priority to hire other women, people of color and people of the LGBTQ community to work on their sets, adding: “(It’s) making sure people in society who we’ve labeled as other have a seat at the table.”

That same day, Kerry stopped by the Crown Heights premiere at Library Center Theater to show her support for the cast and crew.

FYI: Kerry is wearing Pour La Victoire boots and a Maje sweater.
