Lupita Nyong'o Recalls Ralph Fiennes Asking 'Give Me My Space' During Her Time as a Production Assistant

Lupita Nyong’o hits the red carpet while attending the Star Wars Force 4 Fashion Event at the Skylight Modern on Wednesday (December 2) in New York City.

The 32-year-old actress was joined by her co-stars John Boyega and Daisy Ridley.

That same day, Lupita wore a bunch of different outfits while also stopping by the SiriusXM studios and The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.

Lupita recently revealed that she served as a production assistant for the 2005 film The Constant Gardener in which she was in charge of escorting Ralph Fiennes to and from set.

Ralph is a very still man on set. It would be very quiet and that made me uncomfortable,” Lupita said (via ABC). “I’d try to make chitchat, asking, ‘What’s your favorite film? Of all the films you’ve been in, which have you enjoyed the most?’ He was so polite, and he responded to me. At one point, though, he just said, ‘Lupita, give me my space.’”

FYI: Lupita is wearing a ZAC Zac Posen dress (designed by Posen and coded by girls through Google’s Made with Code mission-driven initiative), a ZAC Zac Posen bag, Christian Louboutin shoes, Lady Grey earrings, and Wwake rings. John is wearing Creative Recreation shoes. Daisy is wearing David Koma.

    This has BOMB written all over it, of galactic Fantastic Four levels!! They’ll need that tricky Nylawood accounting to claim a box-office profit with this disaster!! Seriously, it’s 2015 and they’re making a movie that was supposed to be released in… 1985!!?? WTF!!?? AND… they changed the whole original George Lucas story!!?? George Lucas isn’t even involved with this!!?? WTF, DISNEY!!?? BOMB!!?? MAY THIS CHEAP STINKER NOT BE WITH YOU!!??

    It’s cute you think it’ll fail. You’re wrong. So very very wrong.

  • Waterer

    The only way this will succeed is through pure “Hollywood accounting”, old-timey pretending underpaid troll kiddo. It has THAT ONE FACTOR backing it up on its side!! Read them and weep, Han So Low!! 8O

    ENOUGH with the stupid f*cking Ralph Fiennes story already. She shared ONE anecdote about being a PA, and it’s been posted on blogs for the past week. Does Lupita have any achievements to talk/write about?
