She said, all she can remember seeing was long, straight flowing hair on light skin. That caused her to subconsciously start to appreciate more the things she did not possess than what she really was.
Nyong’o said that Dorothy her months always told her that she was beautiful and at some point in her youth, she finally started to believe what her mother said was true.
The actress said the best beauty compliment she ever received was when she was called exceptionally beautiful when she did not have an ounce of makeup on.
She added that not only did she not have makeup on but also, she had not combed her hair or slipped into a pretty dress and she still was called beautiful.
However, what is most important to the actress is happiness and at this point, she has much of that in her life.
