Lupita Nyong’o Stuns While Promoting Queen Of Katwe
The actress who plays the mother of chess champion Phiona Mutesi in the film, showed off her slimmy trimmy physique in blue..
and sported crimson heels to set off the ensemble.
Lupita’s got a helluva baaaaawdy, no?
In addition to being on the promo run, Lupita’s also covering Time Out London and dishing on the film’s all African cast.
The film’s the story of an African chess prodigy and has no white characters. Were you surprised that Disney didn’t want to, say, stick Leonardo DiCaprio in there to make it more ‘palatable’?
‘It’s very refreshing. It’s all thanks to Tendo Nagenda, who is of Ugandan descent and he’s an executive at Disney. He saw the magic in this story, and you know Disney loves magic. It takes people like that – people in positions of power – who are unafraid of the global. Because the world is made up of all sorts of people. We share more than we differ. And this is an African film that demonstrates that.’
All hail Lupita.
