Inside the magazine the actress also shares a few things about herself we didn’t know:

Her 12 Years a Slave character was modeled after Michael Jackson:

“There’s something very Michael Jackson-like about Patsey – the childlike quality he always had. She had her childhood stripped away from her suddenly as soon as she became of sexual age.”

She loves Eye’s Bayou and Louisiana:

“It’s this magical realism that’s just so lush. It’s also set in Louisiana. I just love Louisiana.”

We’ve also learned that the beautiful Mexico-born Kenyan is the new face of Miu Miu Spring/Summer 2014. See her on the big screen again in Non-Stop alongside Liam Neeson and next month.

Dazed & Confused February 2014 will be available February 16, 2014.
