Kerry Washington might need to get up her security level to Olivia Pope status! The actress encountered a crazed fan while at ‘GMA’ on Sept. 23, and appeared totally shaken up while she tried to politely get away.
One Kerry Washington, 38, fan let the hype get the best of her while trying to meet the actress at Good Morning America on Sept. 23. The Scandal star was completely frazzled after being ambushed by the over-zealous follower, and photographers captured it on camera.
Kerry was having her makeup retouched as she headed into the ABC studio, when the fan approached her, seemingly begging for a picture and a chance to talk to the star. But she was hard at work and, unfortunately, didn’t have time! The whole thing happened so quickly, and the woman seemed relentless, leaving the 38-year-old mom totally stunned and distressed.
Policemen and other people standing nearby were able to get the fan under control and Kerry quickly headed inside to get back to work. We have no doubt that she LOVES her fans and would love to meet every single one, but with all the press for Scandal — which you can buy on DVD here — going on, we can’t blame her for having to rush away so quickly!
Once on the show, Kerry showed no signs of anxiety over what had just went down — she looked totally gorgeous in a red dress with her hair in waves. Throughout the whole interview, she could be seen smiling while discussing what’s to come for her beloved character on the hit ABC show. But if this crazed fan ever comes back, she might have to get Olivia Pope to ‘handle’ it!
‘Scandal’: Olivia & Fitz Are SO On
Scandal returns on Sept. 24 at 9 p.m., and fans of Olivia and Fitz are in for a real treat. The fourth season ended with the President kicking his wife, Mellie, out of the White House, and Olivia showing up for the final scene, in which they embrace and passionately kiss. And from the previews, we can see they waste no time getting down and dirty in the bedroom! But with Mellie in her new position as Senator, she’ll need her husband’s support — and he’s not so willing to give in and give it this time around.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Kerry should’ve stopped and talked to the fan? Or do you not blame her for having to rush away for work?
