Kerry Washington: 'I'm so blessed'

Jul 18 2013, 9:18pm CDT | by

Kerry Washington says she is "blessed in all areas of my life".

The 'Scandal' actress recently tied the knot with NFL star Nnamdi Asomugha, 32, in a secret ceremony and was just nominated for an Emmy for her role in the ABC drama and Kerry, 36, has never been happier.

She told People: "I don't talk about my personal life in the press, but I will say I'm really happy. I'm blessed in all areas of my life.

"I'm the luckiest broad in showbiz. I just feel really blessed and humbled and grateful for this nomination."

Speaking about the Emmy's ceremony which will take place on September 22 in Los Angeles, she said: "I have not decided who will be my date. That was my parents question this morning! We'll see."

Kerry recently opened up about her desire to live a normal life and revealed she was always reluctant to be an actress because she didn't want to be famous.

She said: "I'm the daughter of a professor, so ... well, I think acting's not a real job. I come from this sort of academic, working middle-class family where you make something respectable of your life ... I always loved acting, but I think for a long time, in my brain, the desire to be an actor was equivalent to the desire to be famous. I did not want to be famous. I did not want to be that girl. I thought that if you wanted to be an actress, you had to want to be on the front cover of magazines, otherwise you shouldn't do it.

"I'm lucky I come from a really grounded family and I have the three best friends from high school who have made it their job to remain unimpressed by everything I do. If I started being super-diva Kerry, they would be like, 'What is that?' "
