How much is Kerry Washington worth? Kerry Washington is worth $8 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth, and it’s no “Scandal” that the film and TV star is sitting on that much green. Washington has been on the scene since the early ’00s, and over her decade-plus career, the Bronx native and George Washington University graduate has appeared in such films as “Save the Last Dance,” “Ray,” “The Last King of Scotland,” and “Django Unchained.” Her TV resume includes stints on “Law & Order” and “Boston Legal,” though Washington is best known for her turn as Olivia Pope on the hit drama “Scandal.”

Washington’s net worth of $8 million is a testament to the wise choices she’s made over the years, and alongside big-budget blockbusters like “Fantastic Four” and “Mr. & Mrs. Smith,” she’s appeared in indie dramas and comedies. Away from the camera, she’s made a name for herself as a political activist, and in addition to campaigning for Barack Obama, she’s emerged as a crusader for women’s rights. She’s also a wife and mother-to-be. In June 2013, Washington married NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha, and in October of that year, she announced that she was pregnant with the couple’s first child.

How much is Kerry Washington worth compared to others in her field? According to Celebrity Net Worth, she’s No. 26 on the “Richest Black Actresses” list, and that puts her ahead of some pretty impressive competition. Her $8 million fortune means she’s worth more than Vivica Foxx, Wanda Sykes, Rashida Jones, and Paula Patton. Washington’s got a way to go if she’s going to catch Janet Jackson, though. She tops the list with $150 million — more than double that of runner-up Halle Berry, who’s worth $70 million. Of course, Janet owes the bulk of her nest-egg to music, so if Kerry Washington wants to unseat Jackson, she might need to start making albums.
