Chiwetel Ejiofor: Kids Should See '12 Years A Slave'!

Chiwetel Ejiofor suits up while attending the premiere of his latest film 12 Years A Slave during the 2013 BFI London Film Festival held at Odeon Leicester Square on Friday (October 18) in London, England.

The 36-year-old English actor was joined on the red carpet by his co-star Lupita Nyong’o and director Steve McQueen.

Earlier in the day, Chiwetel and Lupita promoted the highly anticipated flick at a photo call.

“I absolutely think that kids in school should see this movie,” Chiwetel recently told Vibe. “I think it’s never too late and it’s never too early to start learning and talking about human respect. I think that’s the overall message of this film.”

FYI: Lupita is wearing a Christopher Kane dress, Christian Louboutin shoes, a Monica Rich Kossan bag, and Kwiat jewelry.

    Out of all the dresses Lupita Nyong’o has worn for the premieres, this one has to be my favorite. Shows off her amazingly toned body.

    They should watch history to make sure it never repeats itself.

  • Maria

    Who thinks Lupita looks like Jennifer Lawrence ?? I can’t wait to see this movie.

  • Kelly

    @Maria: Jennifer Lawrence? LOL
    Lupita doesn’t have a chubby face, big head and skinny body that are all unproportional.

  • xyz

    NO, KIDS SHOULDNT BE INDOCTRINATED AND INDUCED WITH WHITE GUILTED. SHUT UP, TOOL!

  • xyz

    @michaboa:

    ABSOLUTELY NOT. DIDNT MLK SAY THAT IT TAKES 13 YEARS FOR KIDS TO BE BRAINWASHED, INDOCTRINATED? THEN?

  • Love The Shoes

    Ever since I read the book………long before it was made into a movie, I said “this should be on the same required reading list in every history class and maybe even English and writing class too.” Solomon Northup’s writing is excellent. Its just an amazing story and told in first person so descriptively that you see, hear, taste everything. This should be right there on lists that include Catcher in The Rye, To Kill A Mockingbird, Things Fall Apart etc. If you plan on seeing the movie and haven’t read the book, try and get it first.

  • Love The Shoes

    @xyz: I think you might want to focus on your English grammar skills before attempting to delve deeper into the conversation. Oh, and you can turn that volume down while you’re at it. You can be just as ignorant in lowercase as you can in uppercase.

  • Lacroix is a freak

    @LaCroix: You are that freak on perez hilton aren’t you.

  • lia

    Lupita is just perfection. Who is her stylist? Kerry Washington, please take note!
