How did she not know?!
While the Oscar winner was on the show, Ellen asked about the auditioning process for Star Wars at which point Lupita revealed:
"It was crazy. I accepted this audition … and I didn't really know what I was auditioning for. I knew I was going in for J.J. [Abrams], but I was so busy."
The 32-year old actress then went on to talk about her motion capture role in the film and how difficult it was to eat!

Dressed in a floral one-shoulder gown and with minimal makeup, the star looks as radiant as we've come to expect.
She also gets into some important topics for the interview portion.
