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.”

Give this woman LOTS of work. She’s beautiful inside and out and an excellent role model for women.

absolutely stunning, lupita always looks effortlessly regal, she’s a very photogenic beauty and was amazing in 12YAS. We need more talent like this in Hollywood.

She is possibly the most beautiful young actress in Hollywood right now. Absolutely gorgeous!

The true oscar winner! What a beauty!

@Zenith: I dont know if the most beautiful but probably one of the most grounded people out there. Don’t ruin her please. Well, she’s 30 lol! Wtf am I saying?

She might not have won the Golden Globe, but I really hope she wins the Oscar.

i am glad lupita is doing so well in hollywood :)
