Scandal’s Kerry Washington: I Don’t Drink Alcohol or Coffee

Looks like we won't see Kerry Washington mired in a boozy Scandal!

The 36-year-old Emmy nominee is practically a teetotaler, abstaining from alcohol except for rare occasions, as she tells Page Six. In fact, it sounds like she enjoys a low-key lifestyle in her downtime!

"I actually live quietly," she tells the outlet. "Work hard. Get bored easily. Don’t drink. Who needs those empty calories? I watch what I eat. I train, do pilates."

(So now you know that whenever you see Olivia Pope unwinding with a glass of red wine on the hit ABC drama, it's probably just grape juice.)

She does admit, per Us Weekly, that she drinks "maybe twice a year" — when she's hanging out with old friends or fellow Scandal cast members.

And, as she reveals to Us, she doesn't even drink another drug-like beverage: coffee!

Clearly her diet does wonders for her — she came in at number two on People's 100 Most Beautiful People list this year, and Neutrogena just snapped her up as their creative consultant.

More power to her, but one woman's "empty calories" is another's "funtime juice!" What time is happy hour?

How much do you drink on the Kerry Washington Scale? Just kidding — you don't have to spill. Just give us your take on Kerry's restraint below.
