Hollywood is wild with Lupita buzz. This talented actress is no stranger to working at her craft and working on her health. She is a graduate from the prestigious Yale School of Drama and broke out in 2013 with her role in “12 Years a Slave.” It is safe to say her life will never be the same.
Lupita’s approach to fitness and health can best be described as a balanced approach of moderation. She makes sure to maintain her “regimen” of “rest, water, eating well, and working out.”
She recently spoke at Essence’s 7th Annual Black Women in Hollywood Gala about beauty. Here she recounted her own personal struggles accepting her skin color as a young girl and goes on to talk about the true beauty that comes from compassion.
Lupita’s background is nothing if not diverse. She grew up in Kenya, born in Mexico, and eventually went to college in the United States. She speaks four languages and approaches health as less of a workout or diet regime and more of a holistic moderated balance.
She’s also made a splash on the red carpet with her bold fashion choices. Never shy to infuse color into her award show choices that only accent the external beauty that radiates from this very talented woman.
Her awareness and examination of beauty has been a lifelong pursuit. In 2008 she wrote, directed, and produced the film “In My Genes,” which examines the treatment of Kenya’s albino population. “In My Genes” went on to win first place at the Five College Film Festival and establish Lupita not only as a talented actress, but also as a multi-talented writer and director concerned with issues far larger than Hollywood’s glitz and glamor.
Although the world is largely just learning of Lupita, she is clearly a woman that is centered in who she is and draw her beautify from a place far deeper than her perfect smile. Lupita is clearly the “it” girl of Hollywood for 2014 and with her most recent Academy Award win for Best Actress in a Supporting Role the future looks bright.
