Lupita Nyongo Covers New York Magazine

Lupita Nyong’o is on the cover of New York Magazine‘s latest issue. She  speaks about life after her awards season run.

The 12 Years a Slave star said, "I’ve been in a bubble. I haven’t been out much. I haven’t gotten used to being recognized. I was blissfully ignorant of the magnitude of the project I was in or what it was going to mean for the world.”

She describes her first few months in America as "mortified".

“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.”
