“I decided it was going to be my side hustle. I was going to make some money braiding people’s hair. So I went to the great troubles of creating a poster — but I just didn’t have the heart to charge anyone.” For me braiding hair is an intimate thing. It’s getting up close and personal and I like to do it for people I know and love and trust,” Lupita recently shared to Vogue. Check out the video below!

Lupita Nyong'o Becomes 2nd Black African Woman to Cover 'Vogue'!

Lupita Nyong’o looks absolutely breathtaking while posing for the cover of Vogue‘s July 2014 issue.

The 31-year-old actress becomes only the second black African woman to ever grace the cover of the magazine. The other is Ethiopian model Liya Kebede. Here is what Lupita had to share with the mag:

On watching herself in 12 Years a Slave: “I was really nervous about seeing myself in 12 Years a Slave because it had been such a profound experience in all ways. I remember it being one of the most joyful times in my life — and also one of the most sorrowful. I didn’t want my experience to be a vain one. But I will say that when I watched it, my heartstrings were pulled so tight for [the main character] Solomon that I couldn’t go into the ego trip. I cried — I mean, I was inconsolable. I wept for an hour after the movie.”

On being photographed by paparazzi for the first time: “For a split second I looked behind me to see who they were flashing at — and it was me! That was, I think, the beginning of the end of my anonymity.”

On being intrigued by Star Wars‘ R2-D2 and C-3PO: “They just resonated with me. Being able to convey emotions with just a few digital sounds—it speaks of good storytelling… It’s a wonderful opportunity to be working in these fantastical realms. They’re worlds away from 12 Years a Slave, that’s for sure—but that kind of diversity is what dreams are made of.”

Lupita Nyong'o to Star In & Produce Love Story 'Americanah'

Lupita Nyong’o just signed on to star in and produce a cinematic adaptation of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie‘s novel Americanah!

“It is such an honor to have the opportunity to bring Ms. Adichie‘s brilliant book to the screen. Page after page I was struck by Ifemelu and Obinze’s stories, whose experiences as African immigrants are so specific and also so imminently relatable. It is a thrilling challenge to tell a truly international story so full of love, humor and heart,” the 31-year-old Oscar winner said in a statement (via The Wrap) about signing on for the film.

The novel is “an epic love story of young Nigerians, Ifemelu and Obinze; a romance that spans continents, visas, phone cards, and breakups, while exploring the cruelties and the humor of both the modern immigrant experience and the difficulty of finding your way home.”

The film will be produced by Brad Pitt‘s Plan B, marking the second team-up between him and Lupita – both Oscar winners for 12 Years a Slave!
