36-year-old Kerry Washington decided to open up about her secret relationship later on wedding to San Francisco 49ers cornerback Nnamdi Asomugh which took place in July.
No one knew Washington was dating and it was a surprise that they even got married. Although it was a shock, this is what the Scandal star said about it. “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,” the Emmy-nominee says. “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.”
She goes on to add on keeping her private life private saying, “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. 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.’”
