Those hula-hooping skills, though! Lupita Nyong’o just scored her second Vogue cover (the October 2015 issue), and this time, the fashion bible made sure that the Oscar-winning actress participated in their “73 Questions” series.
The star of the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens, 32, set out not only to answer some of our most burning questions (Luke versus Han? C3PO versus R2D2?), but also to beat out Reese Witherspoon’s legendary “73 Questions” somersault.
Her strategy? To hula-hoop through the Vogue offices while answering the onslaught of questions—and in heels!
The Jungle Book actress then gave fans an inside peek into her life as a Brooklynite, where every morning, “I wake up, I read, I meditate, I work out, and then I face my days,” she shared. She also dished that she wore more than 168 CGI dots while portraying her Star Wars character, Maz Kanata. (“I like specificity!” she laughed.)
