Kerry Washington, 46, looks incredibly youthful in lakeside selfie… and includes throwback photo taken at the same ‘special place’ three decades ago
Kerry Washington shared a breathtaking new Instagram picture of herself posing beside a picturesque view of a lake.
The 46-year-old Scandal star posted the photo as part of an album – alongside a throwback of her on the same lake as a teenager.
‘Same girl, same lake. 30 something years later. Almost all of my favorite childhood memories involve being in the water,’ she wrote in her caption.
In a plug for her upcoming memoir, she teased: ‘This lake holds such a deeply special place in my heart. I can’t wait for you all to see why.’
She then urged her more than seven million Instagram followers to preorder her book Thicker Than Water, which will be published September 26.

The cover of the autobiography is a picture of Kerry staring into the depths of a body of water, with her face reflected back at her at the surface.
Three days before the memoir appears in stores, Kerry will be kick off her book tour with an event in the Bronx alongside Tarana Burke, who coined the hashtag #MeToo.
Then, on the day the book comes out, she will hold another talk in New York City alongside Vanity Fair editor-in-chief Radhika Jones.
Her tour will include an appearance in Atlanta with Tyler Perry, a Los Angeles stop with Gabrielle Union and a London engagement with Edward Enninful.
She will wrap up her string of appearances by throwing an event in Miami with Eva Longoria, who a few years ago was meant to direct Kerry in a film called 24-7.
Kerry appeared on the Today show a few months ago and reflected on the process of cobbling together her autobiography.
‘I think when Scandal was coming to an end, it really was an opportunity for me to start to do more thinking about myself and learn more about myself, and so a lot of it is me kind of sharing that journey,’ she explained.
‘It’s kind of about new information that I learned about myself and my family, and trying to integrate that information,’ Kerry added cryptically.
