"I had this very inspiring teacher named Larry Maldonado. He had an awesome substitute teacher named Jennifer, who would sometimes step in and teach, but then she left to move to Los Angeles and be on 'In Living Colour'," Washington said on 'The Tonight Show', reports femalefirst.co.uk.
"I learned to dance from Jennifer Lopez. It was like meant to be that I would be famous," she added.
Meanwhile, the 39-year-old previously revealed she tries to "quit acting all the time".
She said: "I try to quit acting all the time! Not necessarily the show, it's not that I would ever walk away from 'Scandal,' but at times I am like, 'Eh, I'm done with this acting thing.' But being able to tell the story brings me back."
