Lupita Nyong'o Covers 'Dazed & Confused' February 2014

Lupita Nyong’o looks flawless on the cover of Dazed & Confused‘s February 2014 issue.

Here is what the 30-year-old Golden Globe nominated actress had to share with the mag:

On deciding to be an actor: “The first time I thought I could be an actor was seeing The Color Purple. Whoopi Goldberg looked like me, she had hair like mine, she was dark like me. I’d been starved for images of myself. I’d grown up watching a lot of American TV. There was very little Kenyan material, because we had an autocratic ruler who stifled our creative expression.”

On using the Lucid Body acting method: “It’s about investigating your emotional make-up through your physicality. We store our emotions in our bodies.”

On modeling her 12 Years a Slave character after Michael Jackson: “There’s something very Michael Jackson-like about Patsey – the childlike quality he always had. She had her childhood stripped away from her suddenly as soon as she became of sexual age.”
