Lupita Nyong'o is preparing herself for normalcy. After the frenzy that's followed her gripping performance in "12 Years a Slave," she wants to be ready for life back home in New York. In a recent interview at a Beverly Hills cafe, she said "I try to keep my regimen — rest, water, eat well, workout — so that when this is all over, I don't experience a total hangover," She hasn't yet accepted that her life may never be the same, saying "I have a very ostrich mentality. I feel like I have my head in the sand so no one can see me."
