Lupita Nyong’o saw this one coming. She even mentioned it herself in her Vogue interview. The “12 Years a Slave” actress told “Vogue” … “The red carpet feels like a war zone, except you cannot fly or fight; you just have to stand there and take it.” Stars like Tom Cruise and Gwyneth Paltrow have felt the heat after making similar comments to being famous and being at work.
During her Vogue interview, Lupita quickly tried to clean up her comment by saying, “I hope they don’t make that the big quote! Because that would be sad! Tell them not to do that!”
Well the “thems” in question already have. Several commenters on sites have questioned why would she even say such words.
Maybe this is Lupita’s first Hollywood “scandal”, and we’re quite sure she’s learned her lesson. And for the record, there’s no similarities at all. If I had to pick a mortar attack over paparazzi flashing lights in my face. Guess which one I’m going with?
