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."
