Lupita Nyong’o for W Magazine
Posted by on Feb 8, 2014


Lupita Nyong’o strikes a pose for the February cover of W magazine.

This marks the first major fashion cover for the 12 Years a Slave star.

On telling her father she got a part in 12 Years a Slave:

“ When I got the role in 12 Years a Slave, I called my father and said, ‘Daddy, I got a part in a movie! Do you know Brad Pitt?’ And he said, ‘I’ve heard of him, but I don’t know him personally.’ I said, ‘Well—he’s producing this movie, and he’s really big in Hollywood.’ My father paused and then said, ‘So you have a job! Good. Congratulations! And good night!’ That call put everything in perspective.”

Nyong’o is up for her first Oscar for ‘Best Supporting Actress’ for 12 Years a Slave. Find out if she wins, on Oscar Sunday, March 2, 2014, on the ABC Television Network.
