Kerry Washington Turned 41, And She Decided To Commemorate The Date In A Sweet Way

February 2, 2018

American actress Kerry Washington, known for the role of Olivia Pope in the popular ABC drama Scandal, turned 41 on Tuesday. Kerry celebrated her birthday on the set of the 6th season of the drama series with her colleagues. But even though she had to work that day, she managed to have so much fun.

The mom-of-two shared with her Instagram followers a hilarious photo where she is pretending to take a bite from a gigantic cake that has “Happiest of Birthdays Kerry!” written on it.

But it’s not the only thing that her Scandal co-workers had to munch down. The massive dessert was surrounded by the sea of cupcakes because 'why not'!

Her Twitter had exploded with sweets congratulations by her friends and colleagues.

Her onscreen love interest, Tony Goldwyn, didn’t forget about her too when he posted a photo of them with a sweet note.

Even in her forties, the star looks beautiful and as youthful as ever!

While Kerry is accepting birthday posts, she asked for something very special instead of simple gifts.

The Scandal star asked her Twitter followers to help fight for the rights of all Americans by making a donation to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). This nonprofit organization has an inspiring mission behind it:

To defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed to every person in this country by the Constitution and laws of the United States.

The ALCU opposed against the President of the United States Donald Trump’s immigration ban and won in a court against him on Saturday.


This victory helped gain a lot of attention and support to the cause by many celebrities. Kerry Washington was one of them. She urged her fellow celebrities to not be afraid to speak up when it comes to politics.

Even on her special day, Kerry wants to contribute to the cause and make a difference.


Happy birthday, Kerry!
