Remember when Kerry Washington gave birth a few years ago? Me either, because she kept it a secret. Despite her starring role on a network show with Scandal, Washington is notoriously private. In lieu of discussing any actual personal details in a new interview with Elle, she opens up about her policy not to share her private life — and it makes for a fascinating read. We can all learn what it's like to have (or raise) a child. A celebrity talking about the lengths she'll go to to shield her life from media coverage? Now that's newsworthy. Celebs, they're not just like us.

Washington discusses her choice to use her social media primarily to promote her projects — and she does promote, as those who follow her live tweeting of Scandal each week know — as opposed to crafting a personal brand. "Social media has actually been great for [other celebrities'] relationships with the weeklies or the gossip sites because people say things and they say, ‘That's not true! Just so you know, that's BS!' I say ‘BS' because it's Sunday. So I'm thinking in some ways, it's been great because people are able to maintain their voice," she says.

Recently, rumors bounced around that Washington was divorcing her ex-football player husband Nnamdi Asomugha. True to form, she stayed silent. "If I don't talk about my personal life, it means I don't talk about my personal life," she said according to E! Online. "That means not only did I not tell you when I was getting married, it also means if somebody has rumors about what's going on in my marriage, I don't refute them, because I don't talk about my personal life."
