In other news, Kerry Washington has been dating an NFL star.

The "Django Unchained" and "Peeples" actress, 36, tied the knot with San Francisco 49ers cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, 31, on June 24 in Idaho, reports E! News. Up until now, she had successfully kept their one-year relationship on the down-low.

An activist and philanthropist like his bride, Asomugha has also dabbled in acting, having scored small parts on TV shows "The Game," "Friday Night Lights," and "Leverage."

While the marriage comes as a surprise, Washington's tendency toward privacy is nothing new: The "Scandal" star has maintained a careful barrier between her public and personal lives ever since her 2007 split from fiance and fellow actor David Moscow.
