Lupita Nyong'o is still getting used to this whole celebrity thing!
The Oscar-winning actress covers the March issue of Lucky magazine, where she opens up about her newfound fame.
The "12 Years A Slave" star says that things can be a bit awkward when she's in public places, which has taken some getting used to.
"The not-so-fun part of all this is that when I don't feel like being famous, I still am. When you're in the middle of Manhattan and you have to pop into Starbucks to use the restroom and everyone recognizes you when you're waiting in line, its awkward," she tells the mag (via Just Jared).
But the 31-year-old also says pursuing acting has made her a more confidant person.
"I didn't feel like I had a full grasp of my instrument [before applying to the Yale School of Drama]. I needed to know more," she explains. "Pursuing acting in that way made me feel equipped and helped me manage my inner critic, which is something I thought I really needed-the ability to quiet that voice that says 'You can't do this.'"
Still, Lupita gets nervous from time to time ... especially when it comes to public speaking!
"It makes me very nervous. My heart is on my sleeve when I do those things, but the only way I know to do them is to speak from my heart," she admits. "So it costs me a lot…and then I need to take a nap."
