Kerry Washington: "Scandal" star, female lead across Leonardo DiCaprio and Jamie Foxx in "Django Unchained," and one of People magazine's most beautiful people of 2013. Yet when it comes to her personal life, Washington is as much of a mystery as her character on the hit ABC series, where she plays crisis management leader Olivia Pope -- who also happens to be the love of the president of the United States' life.

Not a far stretch from reality, as it turns out. Washington's pretty tight-lipped when it comes to her personal drama (either Washington really hasn't dated anybody in the past five years, or she has a really, really good PR team).

So who has the 36-year-old beauty been romantically linked to? We did a little investigating and turned up the following on Washington's dating history:

David Moscow: Washington dated actor David Moscow for four years, from 2003 to 2007, and eventually called off their engagement when she turned 30 in order to focus on herself. (Moscow is also a Bronx, New York, native and is most known for his role as the younger Tom Hanks in the movie "Big.") "Turning 30 was a time when I thought, 'Wait a second. How much of my life really reflects who I am and who I want to be?' I've learned more about myself since leaving that relationship," she told the New York Post about their split.

Lawrence O'Donnell: Neither confirmed nor denied, Washington was rumored to be dating the MSNBC political talking head in 2007 and has been photographed looking pal-y pal-y with the 61-year-old several times since.

CORRECTION: A source tells HuffPost Celebrity that Washington was not romantically linked to a businessman who was included in a previous version of this story.
