Kerry Washington learned how to pop, lock and drop during her days hanging out at the Boys and Girls Club in the Bronx. But who actually taught the Scandal star how to dance? The one and only Jennifer Lopez. Yep, Jenny from the Block.
“We had this amazing dance teacher, Larry, and Jennifer actually used to substitute teach when Larry wasn’t around,” Washington said during a recent interview with Yahoo. “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.”
Basically, Kerry could’ve been a “Fly Girl” just like Lopez, but needless to say, it all worked out perfectly for both New York natives.
During the Scandal star’s chat with the Internet corporation, the mom of 6-month-old Isabelle Amarachi Asomugha, also opened up about being in the public eye or on a red carpet when feeling down or just exhausted.
“I tend to think about those moments on the red carpet as being a character called the “red carpet Kerry.” I try to step into that. I don’t mean deny the fear—I don’t deny my feelings on a bad day—but I kind of try to invite myself to shift into something else to pull it together. You don’t have to handle things alone, you can reach out and get help from close friends and family. Sometimes I try to imagine, “Well what would I do if Mother Theresa showed up at my door right now?” I would pull it together! What if Michelle Obama called me right now? I would pull it together. And not to deny who I am, but to sort of go, “OK, how can I dig deep and get in my stronger self in this moment.”
