While promoting the now blockbuster hit movie that we can’t enough of, Black Panther, we couldn’t help but notice all of the beautiful Black excellence on the red carpets, at the press junkets and beyond.
But one thing that particularly caught our attention is the way Lupita Nyong’o’s castmates respond to her vibes.
They are captivated by her beauty and enthralled by her intelligence, and she definitely knows how to keep everyone around her smiling.
It definitely seems like the Academy Award winner has the juice–and we want to know the secret!
From Black Panther’s leading man, Chadwick Boseman to his archnemesis Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan), and stars Daniel Kaluuya and Winston Duke, we can’t get over the ways Lupita has made our favorite baes fall hard.
