‘Us’ star Lupita Nyong’o reveals how she terrified her mom

Fans know Lupita Nyong’o from “Black Panther” but the Oscar winner is taking on a new movie genre in the horror film, “Us.”

Nyong’o stopped by “Good Morning America” Tuesday to discuss the terrifying film and admitted that she loves scaring people in real life — including her own mother.

“My mom was terrified of seeing this film,” Nyong’o told “GMA.” “In fact, she watched it with her eyes closed and [covered] her ears so she hasn’t really seen it.”

In “Us,” Nyong’o and her co-star Winston Duke are being terrorized by a family that looks just like them. Nyong’o therefore acts in two different roles at the same time.

Much of her appeal and beaury comes fron within…her natural self confidence, her intelligence, her light heartedness, her wit and playfulness all complimented by her flawless skin, wide eye innocence and perfect cheekbones.
