Lupita Nyong’o has become the “it girl” in what seems to be overnight. The beautiful 12 Years A Slave actress graced the cover of NY Mag.

Inside the issue, Lupita Nyong’o dished on being afraid to leave Kenya, her childhood, and adjusting to living in the United States.

On adjusting to being in the U. S.:
I find my freedom in structure. It was very hard to adjust to an individualistic and very liberal system. I mean, my upbringing, I would iron my clothes every night. I would plan what I wore the night before, and then I would iron it. That’s just the way my mom raised us. Then I got to Hampshire, where clothing is sometimes optional and all this kind of thing. I was mortified.

On how she got into acting after meeting Ralph Fiennes:
He asked me what I wanted to do with my life, and I very timidly admitted that I was interested in being an actor. He sighed and said, ‘If there’s something else that you want to do, do that. Only act if you feel you can’t live without it.’ It wasn’t what I wanted to hear, but it was the thing I needed to hear.

On her first run-in with paparazzi:
I don’t know who they were waiting for, but they definitely chased me down, which is a startling, disturbing experience. I did not expect it. I went into flight mode.

On what she has been doing since award season:
I’ve been in a bubble. I haven’t been out much. I haven’t gotten used to being recognized. I was blissfully ignorant of the magnitude of the project I was in or what it was going to mean for the world.
