JENNIFER Lopez taught Kerry Washington (pic) how to dance in the Bronx, New York, when they were growing up.
The 37-year-old actress grew up with the ‘I Luh Ya Papi’ hitmaker, 45, in the Bronx, New York, and believes she’s the reason she can shake her butt.
Speaking to Yahoo Beauty, Kerry said: “We had this amazing dance teacher, Larry, and Jennifer actually used to substitute teach when Larry wasn’t around.
“You wouldn’t know it from my build, but Jennifer taught me how to dance.
“And I remember when she left the Boys Club because she was leaving New York to go to LA to try and make it big and we were all like, ‘Oh my gosh.’ ”
Meanwhile, the ‘Scandal’ star gave birth to her first child, daughter, Isabelle with her husband Nnamdi Asomugha in April and admits motherhood is a great experience and she’s just enjoying her little one.
Asked how she’s finding being a mum, she replied: “You know, it is amazing and life changing and extraordinary. I normally don’t talk about this stuff… I think I am just in awe of her.”
The brunette beauty has bounced back into shape really quickly after giving birth and credits her love of Pilates for helping her lose the baby weight.
She said previously: “It’s such a great way to get in shape in a loving way. I feel like I’m both challenging myself and healing my body at the same time.” â€“ Bang Media
