Kerry Washington - Kerry Washington: I Don't Drink Alcohol

Kerry Washington doesn't drink alcohol.

The 36-year-old star admits she only indulges in booze on special occasions as she likes to keep a clear head in every situation, and would rather steer away from the high amount of calories embedded in an alcoholic beverage.

Speaking to the New York Post newspaper, she said: ''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.''

While the Emmy Award-nominated actress insists she likes to maintain a healthy diet, she previously admitted she suffers from severe allergies to a lot of food types and must travel with an EpiPen - a syringe containing epinephrine used to treat allergic reactions - at all times.

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.''
