35-year-old Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o is gearing up to star in Jordan Peele’s next horror film, Us, in theaters March 22nd.
Inside the pages of Marie Claire US (the March 2019 cover is photographed by Daria Kobayashi Ritch, styled by Joseph Errico in a Balmain dress), Nyong’o opens up about why she considers horror films to be a cathartic experience, what she treated herself to after the opening of Black Panther, her father being a feminist, and why we have to retain vigor within this political climate.
On working with Jordan Peele for their film Us: “He [Peele] asked me, ‘What is your process as an actor? What do you need from a director? And I just started to cry. I was like, ‘I’ve never been asked that before.’ I could just tell in that question was a man who understood what it meant to be an actor…
On what she treated herself to following the success of Black Panther: “I went on a 10-day silent retreat. It was a gift. I did it for my birthday.”
On what she hopes to provide with first her children’s book, Sulwe: “In no way do I imagine a child will read this and never have a problem with the world discriminating against their skin or themselves discriminating again their skin. But at least you have a foundation. You have something that reminds you that you are enough.” *Sulwe is due out later this year.
On the support from her father: “It makes a huge difference to have a father who champions you. My dad was a feminist before it was cool for men to be feminists – his father too in many ways.”
On not becoming passive during within the current political climate: “Right now it’s a very, very polarizing environment. The pendulum has swung to the nth degree. But it’s important that we still find vigor when things are not that extreme because it’s in those moments when the pendulum is just swinging side to side that the most damage can be done. That’s when you get passive when things aren’t that bad. Before you know it, things are terrible again, because we fell asleep at the wheel.” Image courtesy of Marie Claire. (source)
