Breakout star Lupita Nyong'o shows no signs of slowing down. After winning an Academy Award in March for her first movie role, slaying red carpet after red carpet and being named the World's Most Beautiful Woman by PEOPLE magazine, the actress further cements her incredible year by scoring her for first cover of Vogue with the publication's July issue.

In the magazine, the actress, who has booked a role in 'Star Wars: Episode VII' and the lead in 'Americanah', talks about her zero to sixty rise to stardom, not wanting to play second fiddle to Jennifer Lawrence and the joy and intimidation of '12 Years A Slave'. Read excerpts beneath:

On Her Zero To Sixty Rise to Stardom:
"It just feels like the entertainment industry exploded into my life. People who seemed so distant all of a sudden were right in front of me and recognizing me -- before I recognized them! 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. Even in my dreams of being an actor, my dream was not in the celebrity."

On Not Wanting To Trip Like Jennifer Lawrence:
"It's not cute if you follow Jennifer Lawrence, it's not cute if you're the second one," the actress say of fearing she would fall on her way to stage. "People are still filling me in on what happened after. My mother says I cried during the speech; I don't believe her."

On the Joy and Intimidation of Her '12 Years A Slave' Role:
"I remember it being one of the most joyful times in my life -- and also one of the most sorrowful. I didn’t want my experience to be a vain one. But I will say that when I watched it, my heartstrings were pulled so tight for [the character] Solomon that I couldn’t go into the ego trip. I cried -- I mean, I was inconsolable. I wept for an hour after the movie."

On Fans Reactions To His Music:
"In all honesty, I give one shit. I do hear them–that’s why I say one shit. I do give a shit, but not two shits. Two shits is a lot. I care enough to make sure they understand that I’m making it for them, but I’ve got to be true to where I am."

On the Importance of Artist Development:
"Artist development made me who I am. Somebody took the time to help me find what it is that works for me as an entertainer and who I am as a music maker."

On His Meaty Role In Upcoming 'Hands Of Stone' Biopic:
"I wanted to show a different side of who I am, not just throw my acting chops toward a romantic comedy. When I played Sugar Ray, everything was Sugar Ray. Every day I trained like a boxer. I ate like a boxer. I moved like a boxer. We spent some time at his (Sugar Ray Leonard’s) house. I spent time training with him here and out in Los Angeles, just to get the nuances of how to move and to understand his approach."
