“Hey you guys. So you know how private I am, but I am going to do something crazy. I am going to give you my phone number, which I know sounds insane, but you know I posted about this last week. I’ve been missing that TGIT love.”
Missing her "Scandal" Fans
According to Kerry, she used to "bond" with her fans every Thursday night through their show, but now that it's come to an end, it's becoming more difficult for her to interact with fans. As she would put it, "it's hard to sift through and really connect with the people who matter to you most."
Of course, Washington's fans made sure to respond to her Tweet, letting her know that they've already texted the number that she posted, hoping for her response.
One with the Fans
The actress also updated her fans about the people she's actually been texting, calling the entire experience "nuts."
You guys. This is nuts!!!! So many texts. Forgive me if I didn’t get to everybody today. But I’m soooooooo happy you texted. This is CRAZY exciting. AND YES ITS REALLY ME pic.twitter.com/l6kYuzRk4k— kerry washington (@kerrywashington) August 29, 2019
It comes with no surprise that Kerry tweeting her number would be answered with a whole lot of text messages, as she's considered an influential actress and personality in general.
Kerry's Girl Boss Power
In fact, there's no better way to know just how influential a person is, but with the type of crowd that she associates with.
Kerry Washington hangs out with the likes of former First Lady Michelle Obama, and with both of their wisdom, achievements, and interests, such conversation between two girl bosses must have been for something great.

Now that she's done with being a girl boss on "Scandal," Kerry is taking her talent to Hulu's "Little Fires Everywhere," which premiers in 2020.
