Oscar Winner Lupita N'yongo, the 31-year-old Oscar winner is a bona-fide triple-threat: an actress, a director and a producer. She's also just inked a major beauty deal.
On her Oscar win:
“It doesn’t feel real. I couldn’t believe I was climbing up the very same stairs that Jennifer Lawrence was climbing. It’s still very surreal. It’s changed a lot — more people know who I am, for example, and I’m sure it’s bound to change [other] things.”
On working with Lancome:
"What appealed to me about Lancôme is that they’re not dictating what beauty is. What they do supports something that already is — and that was appealing to me, too. It’s what drew me to them."
NOAH is the number one movie in the world! At last that's what the current commercial declares and after an amazing first weekend, March 28-March 30, raking in 40 million dollarshere in the US--we're not surprised. We checked it out last Sunday and it blew us away. A stunning biblical epic that mixes at times a bit of the modern, it has stunning cinematography, memorable lines, and a quirky yet poignant appearance by Sir Anthony Hopkins.
Over the last few weeks lead Russell Crowe (Noah) and Co-Star Jennifer Connelly (Naameh) have shined at Noah premieres all over the globe including: Paris, London, UK New York, LA, and Madrid.
We've heart Connelly's incredibly glam Louis Vuittonensembles per each premiere.
