Watch Lupita Nyong'o talk starring in 'Eclipsed' on Broadway and her high school prom disaster on 'Late Night With Seth Meyers.'
Believe it or not, Lupita Nyong’o was stood up at prom.
The Academy Award winner–looking fly as ever in a red suit–stopped by Late Night With Seth Meyers Monday night to talk starring in Eclipsed on Broadway and the time a date flaked during her high school days in Kenya. As you may recall, Nyong’o mentioned her prom disaster during a conversation with Trevor Noah a few weeks back.
Written by Danai Gurira and directed by South Africa's Liesl Tommy, Eclipsed, which opened last Sunday at the Golden Theatre, tells the story of a group of women during the second Liberian War. Find out how to support the show’s 10,000 Girls Campaign by heading here.
