Lupita Nyong'o Felt Liberated by Her 'Star Wars' Role

Lupita Nyong’o rocks an Estar Guars shirt while making her way through LAX Airport on Friday (December 11) in Los Angeles.

The 32-year-old Oscar winner recently opened up about her role in the highly anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie, which opens December 18.

12 Years a Slave was a film that was so much about my body, and Star Wars is not at all. There was a liberation in being able to play in a medium where my body was not the thing in question,” Lupita told BuzzFeed News. “The acting challenge I was looking for was completely different, a complete departure from 12 Years a Slave.”
