OK ENDLESS AMOUNT OF EXCITEMENT REGARDING LUPITA BUT I HAVE WORK SO CAN WE ALL JUST REGARD THIS PICTURE INSTEAD AND CONCLUDE THAT SHE LOOKS AND ACTS LIKE A GENUINE, 100% REAL LIFE DISNEY PRINCESS?
She’s an incredibly beautiful, talented, humble, intelligent, articulate, funny and sweet actress. She speaks four languages fluently. Following university, she becomes a production assistant on films such as The Constant Gardener, an experience which (with a little encouragement from Ralph Fiennes) inspired her to pursue her love of acting. Gets a couple of roles in MTV Africa shows, then decides to take a detour from acting and makes a fucking documentary on the plight of Albino people in Kenya. Off to Yale School of Drama, just before graduating she lands her 12YAS role. Wins all the awards. Makes us all inadequate.
Disney should be bloody begging for a Princess so perfect. I say we make her an honourary one, so that little girls have someone fantastic to look up to, yes? Especially girls of colour, girls who are made to feel ugly and unworthy because of the colour of their skin, a personal struggle she has openly discussed.
"No matter where you’re from, your dreams are valid".
Yes indeed. And so ends my hastily typed love letter to Lupita Nyong’o.
