The Oscar-winning actress looks stunning on the cover, and within the mag’s spread, as she sports a multi-colored two piece dress, along with some bouncy curls and au naturale makeup.
In the spread, Lupita opens up about social media, not being allowed to wear makeup as a teenager, fame, applying to Yale University, and much much more.
Read some excerpts below:
On Her View Of Social Media :
“I’m governed by things that made me smile, laugh and think. And if they do that to me, then I ask myself, would anybody else care to see this? If I can think of one person, I post it.”
On Public Speaking:
“It makes me very nervous. My heart is on my sleeve when I do those things, but the only way I know to do them is to speak from my heart. So it costs me a lot, and then I need to take a nap.”
On Her Not Being Allowed to Wear Makeup As A Teen:
“My mother has never ever worn a drop of makeup in her life-not even at her wedding. Honestly, my mother’s outlook was hard for me to take when I was a teenager and wanted to experiment. But in the end I appreciated it, because today I can look in a mirror with no makeup on and love myself.”
On Fame Itself:
“The not-so-fun part of all this is that when I don’t feel like being famous, I still am. When you¹re in the middle of Manhattan and you have to pop into Starbucks to use the restroom and everyone recognizes you when you¹re waiting in line, its awkward.”
On Applying To Yale School of Drama:
“How difficult it was to get in is something I had to ignore. It wasn’t up to me to decide that I didn’t belong there. What I had to do was just show up and do my thing-to dare to try.”
