Lupita Nyongo saying she's lonely in America is the price of success

Lupita Nyongo is currently in Hollywood where she was formerly enjoying her time in the Los Angeles lockdown and then when the state of California lifted the lockdown, she was still exercising self-quarantine because you know, Covid-19 is not a joke.

But that isn’t the reason why Kenya’s movie queen is lonely. She recently gave an interview to the British Vogue in which she spoke about just why it is she feels lonely. And according to her, this feeling and situation shifts from movie set to movie set.

Filming is so time-consuming and intense. With Black Panther, a lot of us were single. On Little Monsters, nobody was single. Everyone when they are done with their day´s work, wants to go home to their families, which makes a whole lot of sense. When you don´t have that it´s very isolating.

And while there are some bleeding hearts who are about to start crying about the fact that Lupita is feeling lonely but I am here to tell you that you do not have to feel sad for her, she is merely paying the cost to be the boss.

You see, every career path has it’s own challenges and a lot of the times, you have to go through them on your own. And this is simply what Lupita is facing.

She is at a point in her career where she is making her bones. And my oh my, she has had a fortunate run of things given Luooita has appeared in the following movies which I found thanks to Wikipedia:

2008 East River F Short film
2013 12 Years a Slave Patsey
2014 Non-Stop Gwen Lloyd
2015 Star Wars: The Force Awakens Maz Kanata
2016 The Jungle Book Raksha (voice)
2016 Queen of Katwe Nakku Harriet
2017 Star Wars: The Last Jedi Maz Kanata
2018 Black Panther Nakia
2019 Little Monsters Miss Audrey Caroline
2019 Us Adelaide Wilson / Red
2019 Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Maz Kanata
2021 355

So her complaining that she is lonely yet in all honesty, Lupita Nyong’o has a solution that is open to her that she says she saw in another one of her sets: she could always start a family. However, the unfortunate truth is that this would derail her career so at the moment, she needs to keep a stiff upper lip and focus on her mission which is to be the biggest female movie star in the world.
