Kerry Washington has learned “through experience” that keeping her personal life out of the media just works for her.

In fact, the “Scandal” star got married in June to someone most fans didn’t even know she was seeing. Washington and NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha had been quietly dating for a year before secretly marrying in Idaho.

Since then, Washington is still mum when it comes to her new husband. She decided to elaborate on the silence with Glamour for its October issue, which hits newsstands on Sept. 10.

“I’ve had earlier times in my career when I did talk about [my personal life],” she told Glamour. ”I was on the cover of a bridal magazine. But I couldn’t just turn around and say, “I only want to talk about the good stuff, but not the bad stuff.” So I just thought, “OK, no more.””
