Shonda Rhimes Admits She's 'Obsessed' with Idris Elba and Spills More Fascinating Insights on Life After McDreamy and Her Leading Ladies' Futures

There are plenty of amazing things about working for Shonda Rhimes – a job on a hit TV show, unbelievably attractive love interests, a built-in primetime family – but for Kerry Washington, the job comes with one incredible perk in particular.
"I was talking to an actress who's pregnant and really worried about telling her bosses, and I said, 'Yeah, when I told my boss I was pregnant, she literally jumped up and down in my trailer,' " the Scandal star told Entertainment Weekly when she sat down with the magazine for their epic Shondaland cover story. "I don't know if there's a male showrunner who would do that."

Here are five of the best things we learned when the #TGIT casts and their fearless leader Rhimes came together for PEOPLE, Essence and EW.

As part of his Discovery Channel miniseries Idris Elba: No Limits, the Luthor actor broke the "Flying Mile" U.K. land speed record that was last set in 1927 by Sir Malcolm Campbell, according to a press release from Bentley, which was more than happy to take credit for the historic event.
Elba, 42, hit a top speed of 180.361 mph – the existing record was 174.8 mph – behind the wheel of a Continental GT Speed.
