2014 has been off to a great start for 31-year-old actress, Lupita Nyong’o. The Oscar winner was just named this year’s “Most Beautiful,” by People Magazine.

The big announcement was made on Wednesday morning. Lupita said, “It was exciting and just a major, major compliment,” the 31-year-old says of gracing this year’s cover. And especially, “I was happy for all the girls who would see me on [it] and feel a little more seen.”

Lupita also admitted that she thought beauty was what she saw on television. “Light skin and long, flowing, straight hair,” she says. “Subconsciously you start to appreciate those things more than what you possess.” Her mother, Dorothy, who is the managing director and head of PR for the Africa Cancer Foundation, “always said I was beautiful,” Nyong’o adds. “And I finally believed her at some point.”

Now Lupita loves hearing compliments like, “when I have been called beautiful with not one drop of makeup on,” she adds. “And also before I comb my hair or put on a pretty dress. Happiness is the most important thing.”

Congrats Lupita !!!
