Kerry Washington says “Scandal” helped her to see that she could be a good mother.
The 39-year-old actress has daughter Isabelle, 22 months, with husband Nnamdi Asomugha. Washington plays Olivia Pope on the TV show, reported Femalefirst.
“Even though Olivia Pope has obviously made the decision that she is not a mom… Playing her made me feel like I could be a mom. Because she knows there’s always another way – there’s always a way to fix it, there’s always a way to solve it, to win. And I feel like playing her made me feel like, ‘All right, I can do it. I will figure out how to juggle it all.'”
Washington revealed Shonda Rhimes, who created the show, has also been an inspiration to her.
“She’s been such an amazing resource, as a mom, and as a working mom…I am on one show and I have one kid, and she has three shows and three kids.”
