When someone asks if you'd like to encounter a venomous snake, most people would run the other direction.
Lupita Nyong'o isn't most people apparently, proving that she is much, much more than your average Academy Award-winner.
At first glance, a video recently posted to the 12 Years a Slave stars Instagram seems like something most people do on vacation. She's in the middle of nowhere with an unidentified gentleman wrangling the king of snakes around her neck.
Rightfully so, Lupita is a bit nervous about the whole situation.
The video is actually a behind the scenes shot from the Vogue shoot that landed Lupita on her very first cover.
she's so cute
