I am not alcoholic: Kerry Washington

London: Actress Kerry Washington hardly drinks alcohol as she thinks it has a potential to make her gain a few pounds.

The 36-year-old `Scandal`, who prefers a simple living, said she keeps a watch on food she intakes, reported Contactmusic.

"I actually live quietly. Work hard. Get bored easily. Don`t drink. Who needs those empty calories? I watch what I eat. I train, do pilates. I drink maybe twice a year," Washington said.
