Lupita Nyong'o Reveals Why She Spoke Out About Harvey Weinstein

Lupita Nyong’o graces the cover of THR‘s new issue.

Here’s what the 34-year-old Oscar winner had to share with the mag:

On why she spoke up about Weinstein: “I felt uncomfortable in my silence, and I wanted to liberate myself from it and contribute to the discussion. That was just what I felt I needed to do, quite viscerally. I couldn’t sleep. I needed to get it out … I had to talk to [my mother] about it because it was something that we hadn’t talked about. She was really moved and very supportive.”

On her insecurities: “There is a part of me that will always feel unattractive … That’s OK, because it will keep me grounded. I don’t need to be so full of myself that I feel I am without flaw. I can feel beautiful and imperfect at the same time. I have a healthy relationship with my aesthetic insecurities.”

On the importance of Black Panther: “On the importance of Black Panther: “We were creating an aspirational world where an African people are in charge of their own destiny. And that really appealed to me and had the little girl inside me jumping for joy. To just have African people, black people, at the center of that narrative is so exciting.”
