On a break from her newly opened Broadway play Eclipsed, Lupita Nyong'o stopped by Late Night with Seth Meyers to talk to Meyers about topics like brutal disappointment during her teenage years. Nyong'o, who grew up in Kenya, told Meyers about the "harrowing" experience that was getting stood up for prom. 

Poor girl plucked up the courage to ask the cute neighborhood boy to prom, and then she designed her own dress. Oh, wow. Sounds like a Drew Barrymore movie.
