Lupita Nyongo Declared as People Magazines Most Beautiful woman

April 23, 2014 Gwyneth Paltrow

Lupita Nyong’o is People’s ‘Most Beautiful Woman.”

The Oscar-winning 12 Years a Slave star surpasses the Iron Man 3 star, Gwyneth Paltrow fpr this year’s ‘most beautiful’ title for the magazine’s cover.

Revealed on NBC's Today Wednesday, Nyong’o says she never thought in her dreams that she would be chosen for the cover of the publication’s 25th issue.

"It was exciting and just a major, major compliment," the 31-year-old Non-Stop star humbly admits. "And especially, I was happy for all the girls who would see me on [it] and feel a little more seen."

Born in Mexico and raised in Kenya, Nyong'o first equated beauty with what she saw on TV: “Light skin and long, flowing, straight hair," she recalls. "Subconsciously you start to appreciate those things more than what you possess." Luckily, Nyong'o says her mother, Dorothy, "always said I was beautiful. And I finally believed her at some point." Now she says the best compliments are "when I have been called beautiful with not one drop of makeup on. And also before I comb my hair or put on a pretty dress."

When it comes to beauty, Nyong'o says, "Happiness is the most important thing."
