According to Kerry, the two grew up together in the Bronx (an area in New York City). They even went to the same local Boys & Girls club, where Kerry got to see Jennifer's skills first-hand.
"We had this amazing dance teacher, Larry, and Jennifer actually used to substitute teach when Larry wasn't around," Kerry revealed to Yahoo.
"You wouldn't know it from my build, but Jennifer taught me how to dance. And I remember when she left the Boys Club because she was leaving New York to go to L.A. to try and make it big and we were all like, 'Oh my gosh.'"
Needless to say, both Kerry and JLo ended up making it big in Hollywood! Kerry, 37, keeps viewers hooked every week on the hit show Scandal while Jennifer released her latest album A.K.A. in June this year.
