Lupita Nyong'o Shines On 'InStyle' Cover

Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong'o is the epitome of beauty and poise on the April issue of InStyle magazine, where she opens up about diversity issues within the industry, how she stays passionate about her craft and trying to avoid the Oscar curse.

The 33-year-old actress is currently winning rave reviews in the Broadway production, 'Eclipsed', and has several films on the horizon including the live-action version of 'The Jungle Book' and the chess-prodigy drama 'Queen of Katwe'. Read excerpts of her interview beneath:

On Diversity:
"It’s a disappointment that the nominations this year have not reflected some of the work of people of color, and I hope this moment helps fuel that conversation. There is a real imbalance, from the very creation of the stories and who’s telling them, how, and why. Change has to happen with the writers, the studio, the marketers, the directors. That’s got to be diversified because there is a hunger for the expansion of the role of people of color in the center of narratives."

On Staying Passionate About Her Craft:
"Both my parents raised me to pursue the things that make me feel most alive—what you feel called to do—because that’s how you can have the most effect. That allowed me to get passionate about something that can sometimes seem as inconsequential as acting and then find important things to do with it."

On Avoiding The Oscar Curse:
"Right after the Oscars, I had no idea what I was going to do next. Zero clue. There’s a part of me that thought my life would go back to normal. Like at school. But it didn’t. I did not get out of that unscathed, you know?"
