Kerry Washington — Celeb Crush
This 35-year-old Bronx native is lighting up the big screen this month, and we’re crushing all over again.
We first laid eyes on the lovely Kerry in 2001’s ‘Save the Last Dance,’ where she showed off her slammin’ bod and we fell in love pretty instantly. Since then she’s gone on to star as Ray Charle’s Wife in the 2004 ‘Ray,’ and has also been featured in ‘The Last King of Scotland,’ both ‘Fantastic Four’ films, ‘Our Song,’ and in 2012 took the lead female role in the ABC drama ‘Scandal.’
This month, ‘Django Unchained’ hit theatres, and you can bet we’ve already seen it twice. She plays Django’s wife Broomhilda Von Shaft, and once again proves that we just can’t get enough of her.
Kerry grew up in the Bronx, and attended George Washington University, where she graduated in 1998 Phi Theta Kappa with a double major in anthropology and sociology. Though she chose a career in Hollywood, Washington is also a political activist and social advocate. She spoke at the 2012 DNC in support of Barack Obama, and spends much of her time volunteering for the Adopt-a-Classroom program in New York.
Brains, beauty and heart make this babe a triple threat.
