Lupita Demonstrates Her Spanish Fluency On Mexican 'Sesame Street' (VIDEO)

Since her Oscar win, Lupita Nyong'o has been hailed as one of Hollywood's most beautiful talents -- and boy does the young actress have the brains to match. "Sesame Street" in Mexico was lucky enough to receive a visit from the spanish-speaking star.

Lupita may be Kenyan and attended American universities, but she was born in Mexico -- something that is apparent to anyone who watches her appearance on "Plaza Sésamo."

The Grio reports that the highly-acclaimed actress had this to say about celebrating smiles: “Hello, I’m Lupita, today I want us to celebrate smile day. Do you know how laugh? Why don’t we laugh together? Ready, 1, 2, 3!”

Check out Lupita's appearance on "Plaza Sésamo" in the clip above.
