If this whole acting thing doesn’t work out,Â it looks likeÂ Lupita Nyong’o would make a very savvy publicist. Lupita has managed toÂ deflect the attention from being photographed on the beach in her bathing suitÂ by the paparazzi and ending up on a “Best Summer Best Bodies 2014″Â list intoÂ a incident that proves howÂ hilarious she is.Â And that’s saying something considering it looks like she managed to pull off wearing a white strapless bikini with a massiveÂ IndianaÂ Jones-style sun hat. Â It’s just another reason why weÂ totally want her to be our best friend. And how did she pull-off such an impressive feat? Not with the standard PR statement but with Instagram.
After some pesky paparazzi photographed Lupita relaxing on the sandy beaches in Hawaii, Lupita posted this on her Instagram account:
Despite being photographed in her bikini,Â which no woman should be forced to put up with, Oscar-winning celebrity or not, she didn’t go all smash-the-camera angryÂ like she rightfully could have. Instead she saw the humor in the event and captioned the photo:
“The paparazzi: They got me good!!! #FirstPapStakeout #ZoomLensesSuitableForHorrorFilms”
She also posted her own beach photo:
Ignoring the fact that I’m jealous becauseÂ she’s in Maui and I’m not,Â her response justÂ makes me love her more. This girl must have gone to one hell of a celebrity media training course. Well played Lupita, well played.
