On her brave decision to come forward with her account of sexual assault at the hands of Harvey Weinstein, the actress had this to say:
"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."
Nyong'o was also candid when speaking about her insecutires—yes, she has them too.
"That's OK," she says, with a sly smile, "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."
The piece also features a playful video, in which the actor answers some fan questions about her acting experiences and life on the set of Black Panther. Check out a clip from the video below.
