    You have to commend Peter Taverns. It was nice to see and hear another side to Lupita and the Movie due to his introspective questions.

    Omotola must be green with envyyyyyy.

    All her waka in Yankee and media PR couldn’t land her a decent feature in a Hollywood movie (her 2secs cameo with akon doesn’t count).

    See how lupita has blown. Fame is not by gra gra oh.

    I never got the hype but my oh my, after this interview, to find that she’s so eloquent, and thoughtful and AWARE, and not afraid in the slightest of revealing how aware she is, when most others would rather be more politically correct, especially for fear of courting controversy so early in their career, my days, I’M A LUPITA STAN! Love love love! And THANK YOU to Peter Travers for not keeping this interview light and superficial like all the other TV hosts have.

    Young (emphasis on young due to some other actress’ recent-on-BN interview) Lupita is able to talk about her role and also slavery that she didn’t experience.
