Nyong’o talked about a number of topics, including her time at Yale, and being starstruck over Leonardo DiCaprio at The Golden Globes.

“During one of the commercial breaks,” Nyong’o explains. “I went over to him and said ‘I’m very sorry to bother you but I’m Lupita Nyong’o and I’ve been dying to meet you.”

“Jimmy Kimmel Live” airs every weeknight (11:35 p.m.-12:37 a.m., ET) and features a diverse lineup of guests that include celebrities, athletes, musical acts, comedians and human interest subjects, along with comedy bits and a house band.
