    Kerry Washington's TV alter ego, the always fierce Olivia Pope on the hit series Scandal, is known to guzzle a big glass of red wine while she is trying to "handle" situations.

    But, it's all an act. In real life, Washington doesn't drink alcohol.

    "I actually live quietly," the always stunning 36-year-old actress told the NY Post. "Work hard. Get bored easily. Don't drink. Who needs those empty calories?"

    However, she recently dished to E! News that "cookies and wine" were a part of her Pre-Emmys diet. Guess she only breaks out the vino for special occasions?

    The New York native also explained that she is very health conscious when it comes to her diet.

    "I watch what I eat," she said. "I train, do Pilates."

    Besides being the ultimate fixer on the ABC drama, she is also busy fixing another thing in her life: her home!

    "I'm now renovating my L.A. apartment, and that tests your patience and clarity," she revealed. "Living out of a suitcase so long, I'm finally establishing residence, but I'm always back in NYC. I'm born here. My parents are here."

    Next up for Washington?

    Hosting SNL for the first time on Nov. 2, with musical guest Eminem.
