#Lupstagram: Why You Need To Follow Oscar-Winner Lupita Nyong'o On Instagram

06 June 2014 by

Are you following Lupita Nyong'o on Instagram? You really should be. The Oscar-winning actress is not only amazingly talented and super chic - she's also hilarious on social media. 

From the polo to the BAFTAs and from the White House to her bedroom, Lupita documents everything she does on Instagram. But rather than post humble-brag holiday snaps or pouting selfies, her feed is jam-packed with funny poses, witty comments and interesting observations. Plus a huuuuuge number of guest appearances from her star friends like Aaron Paul, Beyonce and Solange and Jared Leto. 

We reckon Lupita's latest Insta-post is her funniest yet. The actress uploaded a snap of herself on the beach in Maui, Hawaii alongside a picture of the paparazzi photographer who was stalking her at the time. She edited the two pictures so they looked like a comic book strip with the word 'zoom' in block letters on the picture of the photographer and 'A!Eeeeee!' written under the shot of herself. Lupita captioned the image: 'The paparazzi: They got me good!!! #FirstPapStakeout #ZoomLensesSuitableForHorrorFilms.'

Lupita's got a big few months of filming ahead. She's appearing in the new Star Wars movie alongside John Boyega, Daisy Ridley and Adam Driver and she's just announced that she's bagged a role in the movie version of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's book Americanah. 'Tis true: I acquired the rights to make a film of this amazing book by this amazing writer,' she says. 'I HIGHLY recommend the read. #Americanah #GrabIt.'
