Kerry Washington Facts
She’s named after Ireland’s County Kerry. In order to play a lesbian longing for a child in Spike Lee's 2004 film She Hate Me, Kerry Washington was sent to "lesbian boot camp" by the director. "I always approach a role like an anthropologist, so I like to lose myself in a culture and an identity," she told The Advocate. "It was amazing to spend time in that world."
She won an Image Award for Outstanding Actress in a Motion Picture in 2005 for her role as Ray Charles' wife Della in the film "Ray."
