Kerry ‘worships’ Eminem

Kerry Washington has confessed she’s nervous about meeting Eminem on SNL.

The actress is hosting the show on November 2, with Eminem as the musical guest. Kerry has made no secret of the fact she is a huge fan of the rapper, but now she regrets talking about it.

“I'm gonna try to downplay it, it’s become sort of a rumour now that I’m such a fan of Eminem’s and I feel like he's the kind of guy where you have to play it cool when you meet him,” the Scandal star told Extra.

“So I'm going to stop telling people how much I worship him so that it doesn't become weird when I meet him,” she laughed.

Kerry is currently in New York preparing for her hosting gig, and she couldn’t be more excited. She admits that SNL is a huge deal for her because she grew up in New York and the show is “part of TV history.”

“Especially growing up in New York, SNL is a part of my fibre, it’s a part of New York, it’s a part of TV history,” Kerry said. “I don't remember a time not knowing what SNL is, so it’s very cool to be here and join the legacy of all the people who have been on the show and uphold that history. I am super excited to be here. I'm really excited to be a part of it.”

Kerry is reportedly expecting her first child with husband Nnamdi Asomugha.
