Lupita Nyong’o Graces The Cover of Vogue Magazine
This is the truly of the year of Lupita Nyong’o. Right after being cast in the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII movie, Lupita is once again dominating the world of fashion by gracing the cover of Vogue.
On how she knew her life would never be the same:
For a split second I looked behind me to see who they were flashing at—and it was me! she recalls. That was, I think, the beginning of the end of my anonymity.
On her Oscar win:
Very confusing, very numbing. I was just repeating my name in my head, so I didn’t know whether I had said my name or they had said my name! And then my little brother screamed, and time was suspended and it was just noise in my head.
The advice she was given during her press tour
Everyone said, ‘Brace yourself, Lupita! Keep a granola bar in that clutch of yours!’ I didn’t really understand what they meant, and it was only once it was past that I realized that my body had been holding on by a thread to get through this very intense experience. Nothing can prepare you for awards season.
On being cast in the upcoming Star Wars movie:
They just resonated with me. Being able to convey emotions with just a few digital sounds—it speaks of good storytelling, she says. Starring in the next installment is a dream come true. It’s a wonderful opportunity to be working in these fantastical realms, she says of director J.J. Abrams‘ upcoming movie. They’re worlds away from 12 Years a Slave, that’s for sure—but that kind of diversity is what dreams are made of.
