Lupita Nyong'o Covers Vanity Fair


  • Lupita credits her mom and her aunt as style influences, and appreciates both classic and unconventional fashion choices.

  • She started as a production assistant on The Constant Gardener before auditioning for 12 Years a Slave in her last year at Yale.

  • She's happy that Hollywood has become more sensitive to sexism and abuse since her creepy encounters with Harvey Weinstein several years ago, and appreciates that productions now often hire intimacy coaches to help actors navigate sex scenes.

  • On her love life: "I feel like there’s parts of myself that I care to share and then there are parts that I don’t.”

  • Credits Black Panther with allowing the African experience "to exist aspirationally", and its resounding success and impact inspiring her to finish her upcoming book.

  • Lupita has several projects coming soon: a children's book called Sulwe, a horror-comedy called Little Monsters, and the television adaptation of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's Americanah.
