Kerry Washington: the tribute video ti celebrate reese Witherspoon’s birthday
The video shows Kerry – who worked With Reese on the popular Hulu show Little Fires Everywhere with Reese – floated along in a pool in a blue sequined bikini atop a pink float, just like in the 2001 comedy. She also combed her hair like Elle’s in a high pony tail and she smiled happily towards the camera.
A lovely way to celebrate their close friendship! The actress also channeled a similar vibe in another recent Instagram post. In the post she stood at a formal looking desk, held a gavel, and wore a t-shirt that stated, “BLACK WOMEN BELONG ON THE COURT” on the front. As noted in the caption, Kerry was making a reference to the recent swearing in of Ketanji Brown Jackson.
Jackson just took her position on the Supreme Court as the first black woman to ever hold the position.
In addition, Washington linked up with another former co-star at this year’s SAG Awards: Tony Goldwyn. The ex-Scandal costars presented the best ensemble in a drama nominees at the awards. Both Tony and Kerry took on their old roles (their characters were in love) for the occasion. Tony asked, “Should I read the nominees for outstanding ensemble in a drama series?” and Kerry assured him there was no need, by giving him her character’s iconic catchphrase: “It’s handled.”
Before announcing the winner, Kerry, 45, said, “in serious television, it’s no secret that the success or failure of a show is a result of the entire team’s collaboration and chemistry. Each actor shining individually while collectively giving off a dazzling light.” There’s no doubt that the two actors share an enviable chemistry even off-set!
