*Kerry Washington is one of those stars who keeps her personal life out of the media.
Judging by the fact that she was able to get married in June to someone most of her fans didn’t even know she was seeing, she’s doing a good job. Washington and NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha were quietly dating for a year before secretly marrying in Idaho.
Even though their marriage is no secret, she is still not saying much about her new husband. Washington shared her reasons on the chosen silence during her interview with Glamour. The issue and her cover story hits newsstands on Sept. 10.
“I’ve had earlier times in my career when I did talk about [my personal life],” she told Glamour. ”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.””
Back in 2005 she made that bridal magazine cover while engaged to actor David Moscow. Since then she has kept quiet about anyone she becomes involved with, marriage included.
“I’m walking around in the world with my ring. And when people say congratulations, I say thank you,” she said. ”But I’m going to continue to not talk about it and just let it unfold.”
Washington admits that she has friends in the industry who do talk about their love lives, but that it’s not her way.
“I don’t want to sound smug about it…but the point is to do what’s best for me,” she added.
