Lupita Nyong’o is slaying on yet another cover

Award winning actress, Lupita Nyong’o is gracing the January cover of Elle magazine UK and she looks every bit like a vintage goddess.

In the issue Lupita talks about her role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens where she plays a pirate named Maz Kanata. The film hits theaters on December 18. There has been controversy that Lupita’s part in the film was cut short by director J.J Abrams because of her performance. But J.J has come out to defend Lupita’s work saying that the rumors are simply not true.

Lupita who recently filmed Queen Of Katwe where she plays mum to real-life Ugandan Chess prodigy Phiona Mutesi is is also set to play Raksha in the animated film, The Jungle Book.

The 12 Years a Slave star addressed the film she is currently working on with Brad Pitt who is the producer. “Americanah is something I went after before anyone knew who I was,” she says. “I read the book and said, I have to do this,” she told Elle. She says that Americanah is an opportunity to make stories that were missing in her childhood.
