The actress believes that fame is wonderful, but prefers to keep her children away from her.
Kerry Washington is “really vigilant” about keeping her children out of the spotlight.
The ‘Scandal’ star, who has a five-year-old daughter, Isabelle, and a three-year-old son, Caleb, with her husband, former NFL star Nnamdi Asomugha, in addition to being the stepmother of the 12-year-old daughter Nnamdi, work hard to keep your personal life as private as possible.
Speaking of her children, she said: “I am really, very vigilant to keep them out of public view. These are their lives. But it’s not about throwing a Rapunzel and hiding them in a world castle, I don’t want to do that. I think any parent would want to take children away from a situation that makes them feel scared. I don’t want them to be exploited, particularly in this world of social networks. ”
Kerry greatly appreciates the “extraordinary privileges” that fame has granted him, but admits that fame is an “interesting and vulnerable dynamic,” since there is a sense of superb familiarity, where people feel they already know it.
Speaking in the March 2020 edition of InStyle magazine, she explained: “It is an interesting and vulnerable dynamic. But this is not, like, a river that cries. Fame has also had extraordinary privileges and benefits beyond what I can articulate. ”
