Lupita Nyong'o on the January 2018 Cover of Vogue Magazine

Before she attended the Star Wars LA premiere, Lupita Nyong'o was revealed as the January 2018 cover star of Vogue magazine. On the cover which was shot by Mikael Jansson, Lupita is wearing CHRISTIAN DIOR SPRING 2018, POMELLATO earrings and TACORI rings. In the issue, she talks her love life, 'The Black Panther, working in the industry and so much more. Continue below to read excerpts from her interview. For more on her feature, visit Vogue.com and pick up a copy on newsstand. 

On wanting to remain childlike:
That’s why I like to try new things, like pole-dancing or mastering new languages and accents. I value not being good at things, because children are not good at things.

On not thinking about the struggle of the industry & protecting her creative work:
I got such a head start in this industry that it is not in my best interest to look for struggle. That’s such a powerless place for me to think about: what is working against me. I don’t think of what I don’t have; I think of what I do, and use that to get the next thing. It’s a finite reservoir, so it’s important that I safeguard it with my life.

On working in the industry as an actress:
I am here. I am happy to be here. I know this industry was not made for me. But I’m not going to apologize for being here.

On her love life:
You can ask, but you definitely won’t get an answer. There have been rumors and rumors and rumors about my love life. That’s the one area that I really like to hold close to my heart.
