So there’s a rumor going around right now that Lupita Nyong’o‘s role in the upcoming “Star Wars” film was cut due to a lackluster performance, but obviously this is untrue.
Director J.J. Abrams released a statement today defending Lupita and squashing the rumor that she sucked on set.
“The number of rumors floating around about ‘The Force Awakens’ is truly stunning,” said Abrams. “Some are wonderfully funny, others simply preposterous. But the only one more ridiculous than Jar Jar Binks being a Sith Lord is that I cut Lupita Nyong’o’s performance because it wasn’t satisfactory.”
“In truth, her performance wasn’t satisfactory.” Wait, whaaaaat!?
“It was spectacular.” Oh, okay! We good, we good!
“She has brought the character of Maz Kanata to life in the most wonderful, wise, touching, deep and funny way. Lupita never ceased to amaze me. Yes, we tried many approaches, and we finally landed on just what the film needed. She elevated all the scenes she is in, I’m forever grateful, and can’t wait for people to see her stunning performance.”
