Lupita Nyong’o prayed for lighter skin during adolescence

The 12 Years a Slave star wanted fair skin!

Lupita Nyong’o prayed for light coloured skin during her adolescence. The 12 Years a Slave star, 31-year-old Kenyan-Mexican actor said that she always wanted a lighter skin because she thought having a dark black skin was a curse, TMZ reported.

While receiving an award at a luncheon for Essence, the Nyong’o said that she was mocked for her “night-shaded skin” during her growing years. She further added that she eventually learned that beauty comes in all shades and hopes to be an inspiration to other young girls who face similar issues.

Well, with Brad Pitt having a crush on this actor and her alleged link ups with Oscar winner Jared Leto, we’re sure, Nyong’o is now beyond that phase.
