Lupita Nyong'o's Breathtaking Hollywood Reporter Cover Story Is Full of Gems

The actress graces the January issue of the magazine, where she opens up about her childhood, insecurities, and 'Black Panther.'

Lupita Nyong'o opens up about her childhood in political exile, her journey into acting, working on Black Panther and much more in a new cover feature with the Hollywood Reporter.


The actress reveals several illuminating details about her life and career throughout the interview that she hasn't spoken about openly until now.

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.
