Washington, who stars in Tyler Perry upcoming Peeples, says she never thought she'd become an actress.

"I imagined I'd be a clinical psychologist, with a focus on how performance shapes identity," she says. "I'd figure out ways to use role-playing in the healing of people."

Kerry adds that she never even dreamed of a career in showbiz.

"I was not that girl," she says. "I was a kooky theater kid, silly and goofy and academic."
