so, when i was like 14 or something, after Save The Last Dance came out, my dad is Kerry Washington's older cousin, we had thanksgiving dinner with her.
then she wasnt as big of a celebrity as she is now, but she was still pretty massive in my mind. she was extremly humble, she asked me questions about what i wanted to do in the future--at that time i responded "be a actress and a journalist." she told me if i ever needed tips she'd help me.
but no longer do i want to be a writer,
but because she was such a nice person, and a humble person i feel a certain kinship with her, so to see her excel now is almost fascinating.
she has impecable style actually.
