"The not-so-fun part of all this is that when I don't feel like being famous, I still am," Nyong'o told Lucky magazine, reports people.com.

"When you're in the middle of Manhattan and you have to pop into Starbucks to use the restroom and everyone recognises you when you're waiting in line, it's awkward," she added.
