Kerry Washington - Kerry Washington surprised by success

Kerry Washington thinks her success is a ''miracle.''

The 'Scandal' star, who is expecting her first child with her NFL star husband of four months, Nnamdi Asomugha, was terrified of becoming famous but she decided to become an actress because she loves telling stories.

The 36-year-old beauty told the December/January issue of Lucky magazine: ''It's a miracle to even work in this industry. I didn't become an actress to be on the cover of magazines. That was always a little scary to me. What I love about acting is the craft of becoming different people and telling a story.''

Despite being considered one of the most beautiful and fashion savvy women in Hollywood, the New York-born star insists it takes a lot of work to make her look good and she doesn't compare herself to other actresses.

She said: ''Even for me, I think it's a real danger to compare yourself to someone on a television show. I know that I am not going to look like ['Scandal' character] Olivia when I wake up and go to the bathroom at 4 o'clock in the morning. On the set, it's somebody's job to follow me around all day with spackle.''
