Lupita Nyong'o Thought Her Career Would End After the Oscars

Lupita Nyong’o displays her natural beauty on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar UK‘s May 2015 issue, on newsstands now.

Here is what the 32-year-old Oscar-winning actress had to share with the mag:

On life after the Oscars: “You know, I thought it would come to an end after the Oscars. I thought the Oscars would come and go and then all of a sudden everything would be back to normal and I’d be back in my apartment.”

On wanting to act despite difficulties with fame: “I enjoy learning new things. I enjoy being uncomfortable for some reason. It’s more interesting, more challenging… That’s why I’m an actor. Because there’s nothing comfortable about being an actor. You’re always out on a ledge, you know?”

On the responsibility that comes with her skin color: “I don’t feel like the responsibility I feel comes from any place other than my gut. I feel a responsibility to speak about certain things because I wish someone had spoken about them for me… I know I’m in a unique position where lots of people all over the world are seeing me and connecting with me, and perhaps because of my demographic and how limited representation is for my demographic, I do feel not a responsibility but an impetus to speak. It’s an impetus…. It’s 2015, man. We could all use some diversity. It can get tedious to have to explain that I speak English because Kenyans speak English.”

Lupita Nyong'o to 'Lucky' Mag: Fame Can Be 'Awkward'

Lupita Nyong’o takes the cover of Lucky magazine’s March 2015 issue, looking as gorgeous as always!

Here’s what the 31-year-old Oscar winner had to share:

On pursuing acting: “I didn’t feel like I had a full grasp of my instrument [before applying to the Yale School of Drama]. I needed to know more. Pursuing acting in that way made me feel equipped and helped me manage my inner critic, which is something I thought I really needed-the ability to quiet that voice that says ‘You can’t do this.’”

On the pitfalls of fame: “The not-so-fun part of all this is that when I don’t feel like being famous, I still am. When you’re in the middle of Manhattan and you have to pop into Starbucks to use the restroom and everyone recognizes you when you’re waiting in line, it’s awkward.”

On speaking in public: “It makes me very nervous. My heart is on my sleeve when I do those things, but the only way I know to do them is to speak from my heart. So it costs me a lot…and then I need to take a nap.”
