We’ve been waiting to see what her next big role would be, and here it is.
The news was revealed earlier this morning on NBC’s Today Show, where the Oscar-winning actress claims she never dreamed she would receive the nod, saying:
“It was exciting and just a major, major compliment. And especially, I was happy for all the girls who would see me on [it] and feel a little more seen.”
But if not her, then who else? Seriously.
We couldn’t think of anyone who’s more deserving of it than she is.
The Most Beautiful issue hits newsstands this Friday. Congrats, Lupita!
