Lupita Nyong'o is an incredibly talented performer. That said, it apparently doesn't take much convincing to get her to agree to a movie. It only takes the name of a director.

The name of one of the biggest, rising directors having a massive debut take over the public discourse, that is.


In an interview with Buzzfeed News at SXSW over the weekend, Nyong'o spoke about her adoration for Jordan Peele's freshman film, Get Out.

She apparently enjoyed it...a LOT.

"Black Panther'was intense and time-consuming and all-encompassing. But I found time to go to the cinema five times in one month while I was working on that film to watch Get Out."

Get Out was released at the end of February, right in the middle of filming for Black Panther. She would talk about the film with her brother and friends during phone calls to dissect and discuss every detail of the movie.

So the only thing she needed to know about the new film Us was that it would be another Jordan Peele project. She was in.

The excitement for the new movie is palpable.





During the interview, Nyong'o talked about how scared she was reading the script.

"I read the script kind of with one eye, being like 'oh god, oh god, oh god,' and my shoulders are going up up up up up. And I finished, and was like, this is amazing."

The amazing script aside, after how much she watched Get Out, there was no way she wasn't doing this movie.

Speaking about Peele telling her more about the movie, Nyong'o said,

"He was like, 'And if you do this film, and if...' and I was just laughing, because of course I'm going to do this film!"

Which was a brilliant choice, as Us has some excellent early reviews.






Get Out not only was a pop culture phenomenon, but also made $255 million on a $4.5 million budget. The film brought Jordan Peele's horror sensibilities to the forefront of entertainment and has people excited for Us.

His follow up, Us, premiers on March 22nd, and sees Nyong'o joined with Winston Duke and Elizabeth Moss. In the film, they'll have to battle dark doppelgangers and try to survive.

I have a few wealthy friends and I've seen a thing or two that has made my eyes pop out of my head. Let's just say that the priorities of a wealthy person and a dude who has never broken six figures are entirely different. But that doesn't compare to working for the fabulously rich. A friend of mine was a nanny for a super rich family for several years and described the lavish trips she took with them (and how picky and out of touch they were, too).

People told us their own stories after Redditor NeighborhoodTrolley asked the online community,

"People who cater to the super rich: What things have you seen?"

Oh the matters of the heart are just never going to be easy. Love seems to be a never ending mess. I've dated a lot and can attest that the percentage of bad to good is 70/30. And that may be generous math.

I've heard about people fighting on dates, setting fire to the restaurant, discovering hidden identities and dramas I thought only ever occurred on daytime television.

I use to believe the biggest fear about dating was that the other person may turn out to be a serial killer, but they at least tend to show you a respectable time before they strike.

Oof. Let's see who has been left scarred by the hunt.

Redditor u/givemeyourfreefood wanted everyone to share the stories that almost made them re-think searching for love, by asking:

What's the worst date you ever had?
