Lupita Nyong’o fronts the May 2014 issue of Marie Claire magazine

On her past year: 

"It was phenomenal. As brilliant as it was, onward ho. I hope that I will get to work soon. In due time, what I should do next and what I want to do next will reveal themselves. I am not in the business of trying to top this year – that’s virtually impossible. I’d have to be pronounced the queen of England or something."

On her reaction to being called gorgeous: 

"Being called gorgeous is not a bad thing! But at the same time, I don’t want to thrive on people’s opinions of me."

On her anxiety at shows: 

"I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy. It’s not even about the outcome; it’s about the agony of the unknown. It’s like waiting for test results in a hospital."

On meeting one of her idols: 

"I met Sidney Poitier, who has been someone I've looked up to and blessing from afar. It was an incredible thing and something that I hold very dear to my heart."
