No More Privacy for Lupita Nyong’O
IT IS obvious that Lupita Nyong’O, the Kenyan beauty, is having the time of her life. Aside winning numerous awards for her first major film role in ‘12 Years A Slave’, the Yale graduate has been featured in countless prestigious fashion magazines across the globe and has instantly become America’s sweetheart.
Unfortunately for Lupita, the world-wide attention and her new -found fame, have been hard to adjust to. In the latest issue of New York Magazine, which also features a beautiful spread, she reveals that she was disturbed by a recent run-in with the paparazzi and now she can’t move as freely as she used to. “I don’t know who they were waiting for, but they definitely chased me down, which is a startling, disturbing experience. I did not expect it. I went into flight mode.… There are so many highlights that are no longer highlights. I’m living a very swollen life. I haven’t been out much. I haven’t gotten used to being recognized.”
The actress also admitted: “I was blissfully ignorant of the magnitude of the project I was in or what it was going to mean for the world.” In the interview, Lupita also made sure she tells the world what she stands for and what drives her, “I thrive on structure. I find my freedom in structure. It was very hard to adjust to an individualistic and very liberal system. I mean, my upbringing, I would iron my clothes every night. I would plan what I wore the night before, and then I would iron it. That’s just the way my mom raised us. Then I got to Hampshire, where clothing is sometimes optional and all this kind of thing. I was mortified.”
