Actress Lupita Nyong’o picked up one more honor to add to her award-winning year. The film star has been named People’s Most Beautiful person. The magazine unveiled its 2014 World’s Most Beautiful list on Tuesday with the Oscar winner finishing at the top. Nyong’o also graces the cover of People’s latest issue which will be on newsstands at the end of the week.

She tells the magazine in a behind-the-scenes video of her photo shoot that she didn’t always feel beautiful growing up.

“The first person to tell me I was beautiful was definitely my mother. She said that a lot especially when I felt the least bit beautiful which is you know as an adolescent you go through times when you just feel ugly generally. But my mother always said I was really beautiful and I finally believed her at some point.“

Actresses Gabrielle Union and Kerry Washington also made People’s Most Beautiful list.

Nyong’o won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her star-making role in Steve McQueen’s “12 Years a Slave”.
