The “Scandal” star appeared on Thursday’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on ABC and revealed that she followed in the actress and Goop founder’s footsteps into a nine-girl a capella group called Triple Trio.
“When I was in junior high school, there was this really amazing senior named Gwyneth Paltrow and she was president of Triple Trio,” she told Kimmel. “So, I wanted to be the president of Triple Trio.”
Although the two would never sing together, Washington — the go-getter that she is — would later become the co-president of Triple Trio as well.
The two-time Emmy nominee also expounded upon the benefits of being a member of an a capella group, including embarrassing one’s boyfriend.
