Kerry Washington plays a fixer on Scandal - but how does she thank the Gladiators in her own life?
The pregnant actress reportedly gave her team, including her makeup artist and stylist, expensive vacuums from the company Dyson as Christmas presents. The top-of-the-line products run for about $400 apiece. They're also known for picking up pet hair, which is good since Kerry is a major dog lover. Her pup, Josie, is a Shorkie (combination Shih-Tzu and Yorkie).
Still, not everyone was thrilled about the holiday gifts from the 36-year-old actress. Some staffers were reportedly hoping for cash bonuses they could spend on whatever they wanted or something slightly glitzier like jewelry.
However, giving such a practical gift shows how down-to-earth Kerry really is. She already killed it in 2013, and 2014 is set to be even more incredible for the multitasking actress. She and football-player husband Nnamdi Asomugha are expecting their first child next year, and what's more practical than something that helps clean up?
