NEW YORK (AP) — Looking back, Lupita Nyong’o says the moments after she won her Academy Award this year were a blur and time stood still.

But she says in the July issue of Vogue there’s one thing she does remember: worrying she would trip on her way to the podium.

“It’s not cute if you follow Jennifer Lawrence — it’s not cute if you’re the second one!” she laughed, referring to Lawrence’s famous stumble while collecting her best-actress Oscar the year before.

The 31-year-old actress has a steady path ahead of her.

She will voice a character in Jon Favreau’s take on Disney’s “The Jungle Book” and landed a role in “Star Wars: Episode VII.” Plus she’s going to co-produce and star in an adaption of the Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie book “Americanah,” saying the story blew her away.

The July issue of Vogue goes on sale Tuesday in New York and Los Angeles.
