Lupita Nyong'o Totally Nails Her First Vogue Cover
1 of 3
On her new red carpet fame:
"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 her marathon award season:
"Everyone said, 'Brace yourself, Lupita! Keep a granola bar in that clutch of yours!' I didn't really understand what they meant, and it was only once it was past that I realized that my body had been holding on by a thread to get through this very intense experience. Nothing can prepare you for award season. The red carpet feels like a war zone, except you cannot fly or fight; you just have to stand there and take it."
