Kerry Washington doesn’t drink alcohol

65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - Arrivals Unlike her Scandal character Olivia Pope, who usually finishes her day with a glass of vine, Kerry Washington doesn’t drink. The actress likes to keep a clear head in every situation and stay away from the extra calories in alcohol, so she only drinks on special occasions.

”I actually live quietly. Work hard. Get bored easily. Don’t drink. Who needs those empty calories? I watch what I eat. I train, do Pilates. I drink maybe twice a year,” she told the New York Post.

Washington also abstains from coffee and sticks to the healthy diet plan.

She explained: ”Most people do not know about this but I carry an EpiPen with me almost everywhere I go because I have a lot of food allergies, like fatal food allergies, that if I eat these things, I could wind up dying in an emergency room somewhere. So I always have an EpiPen. It’s not sexy, but I’m being honest, I have an EpiPen in my bag.”
