Lupita Nyong'o is Harper's Bazaar May issue UK CoverGirl. Since winning the Oscar for 12 Years a Slave, Lupita Nyong'o has been unstoppable. Her success story is a great one and her star power continues to improve. She admitted that ‘she is happy that her career path is allowing her to be an inspiration to others. She continue, ‘It’s an impetus…. It’s 2015, man. We could all use some diversity. I don’t feel like the responsibility I feel comes from any place other than my gut. It can get tedious to have to explain that I speak English because Kenyans speak English.'
Looking every inch of Spring, the beautiful actress looks vibrant and gorgeous in the looks above. During the interview Lupita said, ‘There was a time when I was afraid to dance,’ says Nyong’o. My older sister would dance with abandon, she would do it to entertain. I was so mortified at the thought of wiggling my body in any direction. And I wrestled with myself, because I didn’t want to be so self-conscious. She continue, I wanted to be able to enjoy music and not care that I looked cute. I don’t know when something switched in my head, but I’m so glad it did, because I feel like dancing, and being able to enjoy one’s body for oneself is such a precious, precious thing. For yourself, you know?’ She pauses. ‘If this had happened to me at a time when I couldn’t dance – ha – my God, I think I would be way more of a wreck.’
Nyong’o’s speaking about her extremely fast rise to fame after her only movie released 12 Years a Slave, she said, ‘This’ is the last two years, one of those trajectories that make you feel woozy with vertigo and that make no sense in any world beyond Hollywood. ‘You know, I thought it would come to an end after the Oscars. I thought the Oscars would come and go and then all of a sudden everything would be back to normal and I’d be back in my apartment.’
