But is her love life taking the centre stage of her success?
Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'O is beaming her signature dark flawless skin on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter’s latest issue and she’s joined by fellow actress Michelle Dockey and personal stylist Micaela Erlanger. But is her love life proving to more popular than her golden movie trophy at this time?
Inside the mag, Lupita talks winning, Hollywood, Africa and love.
Speaking of love, it looks like the 12 Years A Slave star is leaning towards another Oscar winner, Jared Leto than she was seen holding tight to rumoured boyfriend, K’naan.
Both were spotted in Paris couple of weeks back looking very friendly and just early this week, she posted selfies with same Jared on her Instagram before famed photographer Terry Richardson posted up tons of shots of the two looking cozy at dinner.
According to reports, ever since pics of Lupita and K’naan surfaced, people have been throwing major shade, including Wendy Williams, Perez Hilton and even a few media outlets. An article in the Latin Post referred to him as a gang member who has been arrested 12 times while overlooking his humanitarian work.
The belief is Hollywood would much rather see her paired up with Jared, which would make for a cute story than the Waving Flag crooner, K'naan, who posted this cute message on tweeter few days ago: "Beauty accompanied by substance is an unjust weapon against a man’s armor."
But what do you think?
