In an interview with British Vogue, Lupita revealed that sets can be lonely places.
Lupita told British Vogue:
“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’RE 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.”
Lupita also explained why she picks the roles that she does.
“IT’S PASSION. I DEFINITELY WANT TO CLAIM AMBITION, BUT I GET VERY COMPULSIVE ABOUT THE THINGS I AM PASSIONATE ABOUT, TO THE POINT OF NOT SLEEPING. IT’S VERY IMPRACTICAL. I FIGHT THE BARRIERS THAT I FORM FOR MYSELF, BECAUSE THEY’RE OFTEN RIDICULOUS.”
“I DON’T GET FULFILMENT FROM THE NUMBER OF ZEROS ATTACHED TO A PROJECT. WHAT I’M SEDUCED BY IS THE POTENTIAL TO SHIFT A NARRATIVE. THAT IS VERY SEDUCTIVE TO ME, HAVING SOCIAL AND CULTURAL IMPACT.”
