Oscars 2014: Why Kerry Washington turned down a slice of pizza

When Ellen DeGeneres handed out pizza to some of the biggest stars in Hollywood during the 86th Academy Awards on Sunday (March 2), fans were in an uproar over why the host skipped out on handing a slice to Kerry Washington. 

The pregnant "Scandal" star thrust her hand enthusiastically in the air earlier when DeGeneres asked who would want a piece if she had some pies delivered. So why didn't she get a piece?

Because she actually didn't want a slice! "No worries on the pizza peeps!" Washington tweets. "I'm gluten-free! LOL #SnacksInMyPurse #Oscars"

And don't you fret: Washington did get her fix of greasy cheese pizza later on. "Yes! @TheEllenShow =D There IS gluten-free pizza!!!! #OSCARS #greenroom," Washington writes, sharing a photo of herself chowing down on Instagram.
