Lupita Nyong Covers Glamour Women Of The Year Issue

2014 will end on a high note for Lupita as she’ll grace the December cover of Glamour‘s annual Women of the Year issue. The strong and smart actress was interviewed for the magazine. Lupita talked candidly about Oprah, Skin and Family.

“Oprah played a big role in my understanding of what it meant to be female and to really step into your own power,” Nyong’o shared.

“I wouldn’t even call her a role model; she was literally a reference point. You have the dictionary, you have the Bible, you have Oprah.”

The 31-year-old told the magazine that “European standards of beauty are something that plague the entire world.”

“This is the message: that dark skin is unacceptable. I definitely wasn’t hearing this from my immediate family—my mother never said anything to that effect—but the voices from the television are usually much louder than the voices of your parents,” Nyong’o answered.

“I come from a loving, supportive family, and my mother taught me that there are more valuable ways to achieve beauty than just through your external features. Beautiful people have many advantages, but so do friendly people….I think beauty is an expression of love. There’s room in this world for beauty to be diverse.”
