Lupita Nyong’o revealed that, after watching some experienced pole dancers do their thing, she ‘needed’ to learn the skill herself.

The actress was inspired to try pole dancing after visiting a ‘fancy’ New York strip club with a male friend and being hella impressed by the ‘sexy’ dancers and their skills.

‘It was incredible and sexy, and I thought “I need to learn how to do that.”‘

The 34-year-old actress said that while she loves trying out loads of new things, she’s not that fussed if she can’t get the hang of it.

‘That’s why I like to try new things, like pole-dancing…I value not being good at things, because children are not good at things.’

Lupita’s new movie, Black Panther, is adapted from the Marvel comic of the same name, and sees King T’Challa return home to Wakanda after the events of Captain America: Civil War.

But when two enemies conspire to bring down the kingdom, T’Challa must team up, as the Black Panther, with CIA agent Everett K. Ross and members of the Dora Milaje – Wakanda’s special forces – to prevent a world war.

The movie sees Lupita playing Nakia, an undercover operative of the Dora Milaje, the all-female special forces of Wakanda who serve as T’Challa’s bodyguards.

Lupita got into shape for the new film – which, normally, is an activity most people hate, but thanks to co-star Chadwick Boseman it was something she looked forward to.

‘Chadwick had a live drummer come in as we worked out, and it was so cool – it changes your sense of internal rhythm,’ she told American Vogue Magazine. ‘My character fights with anything: guns, spears, ring blades, shoes, glass.’

Now, if she can get that drummer in when she does her pole dancing, she’ll never want to stop. Read More
