For the time being, Lupita is content with her low-key life in Brooklyn.

She said: "I live alone there. I lie quite low. I take the subway. I do yoga. I meditate."

However, she will always feel "a child of Kenya".

She added: "I definitely feel there's a lot of America in me.

"The idea that you can be self-made is very vibrant in America. You can do anything that you want to do. That spirit pushes you on. But it took me leaving Kenya to really appreciate the glory of the place. Ultimately, I will always be a child of Kenya."
