Kerry Washington gave her vote to Access Hollywood's Billy Bush!
"You're better than Fitz. Fitz is a fictional character," the "Scandal" star said to Billy on the Oscars red carpet on Sunday in Los Angeles. "You're the real thing. Fitz is part of our imagination. You're flesh and bones."
The Gladiator credited the onscreen president for sticking with Olivia Pope, regardless of how she speaks to him at times.
"Olivia says tough things to him, another [fictitious] character," Kerry said. "He's a trooper to hang in there the way he does."
On recent episodes of "Scandal," Olivia looked disheveled as she was being held hostage by terrorists, but walked the red carpet looking glamourous.
"This is a little different," she said of the Miu Miu dress and straight hair she wore to the Oscars. "I decided to clean up for you guys."
"Scandal" airs Thursdays at 9/8c on ABC.
