“We are obsessed with each other,” the actress told Celebuzz and other reporters at the premiere for her new film, The Details.

The ABC show in which she stars as political fixer, Olivia Pope, was just given a full season order for its second season on Monday. Washington says the cast, which includes Columbus Short, Katie Lowes, Tony Goldwyn and Bellamy Young often hang out together when they’re not working.

“Yesterday we all got together on a Sunday afternoon to watch future episodes,” she said. “We live tweet when the show is on and the show moves so quickly and it changes so much in post that we can never really be watching it for the first time and live tweeting. So, we try to watch the episodes beforehand so that we can really be engaged with the fans while the show is on. So yesterday, we were watching Episodes 5 and 6 and they’re really good.”

On the Shonda Rhimes-produced Scandal, Washington’s character Olivia Pope is involved in affair with the President (Goldwyn), so has Washington ever had any presidential crushes, fictional or otherwise?

“It’s funny because we have another president in our movie, Dennis Haysbert, and he was a hot president,” she said referring to Haysbert’s role as President David Palmer on 24.

The actress also revealed her support for President Barack Obama in the upcoming election.

“I’m really glad we have the president we have right now and I think he’s doing an amazing job. And I pray that we have him for another four years,” said Washington, 35.

The Details is available for purchase on Amazon and will be out in theaters this Friday. Scandal airs Thursday nights at 10 PM on ABC.
