Actress Kerry Washington Monkeys Around

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – If there’s ever another Planet of the Apes movie, actress Kerry Washington is a shoo-in for the lead.

According to New York-based gossip reporter Baird Jones, the Fantastic Four starlet once had an interesting encounter with a gorilla that made her go bananas.

Washington – who dished the exclusive scoop to Jones at the Movado Future Legends Gala this past Wednesday (Oct. 24) – says she once had to call on her own animal instincts after getting too close to a gorilla.

Washington explains, “When I was filming The Last King of Scotland, I went to a gorilla preserve and I got way too close to a female gorilla who started [charging] towards me. If you run, they run after you. So I did my best gorilla imitation – chewing leaves, head scratching, kneeling. I remembered watching animal behavior TV and [going on] zoo trips.”

And Washington is happy her monkeying around worked.

She tells Jones, “I wouldn’t be having this interview now if that gorilla had attacked me!”
