Kerry Washington must constantly watch what she eats because she suffers from ''fatal food allergies'' and goes everywhere carrying an anti-allergy injection in her bag.
Kerry Washington suffers from ''fatal food allergies''.
The Emmy Award-nominated actress has severe reactions to certain foods and must travel at all times with an EpiPen, a syringe containing epinephrine, which is used to treat allergic reactions.
She revealed to E! News: ''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.''
The 36-year-old beauty has become a household name since starring on hit TV drama 'Scandal', however, the actress - who secretly wed her football player beau Nnamdi Asomugha in June - insists she is nothing like her character, Olivia Pope, a political fixer who is tasked with handling major scandals in Washington, DC.
She said: ''There is no Olivia Pope in Kerry Washington. I'm never bossy, I never suggest that people should do what I say they should do, I never think I can fix situations, I never try to take care of people and I never only keep situations to myself privately ... that's why everyone knows about my private life!''
