Lupita Nyong’o has had a huge year, winning the Best Supporting Actress Oscar, being named People magazine’s “Most Beautiful Woman In The World,” and becoming the new face of Lancôme, but it wasn’t until Wednesday that she finally made it as a star — having a private moment on a beach in Hawaii spoiled by a paparazzo.

The actress, who is in Hawaii for the Maui Film Festival, was strolling in a white bikini, hat, and sunglasses, when a photographer snapped her. Nyong’o seems to have taken it in stride.

After transforming the pics with some commentary (see below), she posted the photos of herself and even the long-lensed paparazzo on Instagram, along with the caption, “The paparazzi: They got me good!!! #FirstPapStakeout#ZoomLensesSuitableForHorrorFilms.” CLICK HERE FOR PHOTO!

Not only did Nyong’o share the paparazzi run-in on Instagram, but she also posted a picture of herself lounging by the ocean shore. Next up for the Oscar winner is a role in the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII.

Check out the photo below of Nyong’o on the beach, and tell us what you think.
