Lupita Nyong'o has no TV

Lupita Nyong'o doesn't own a television.

The 'Jungle Book' actress relies on her friends to keep her up to date on news and current affairs.

She said: "I don't own a TV, but I do get my news in other ways.

"I have friends who are avid news readers, they give me the summary.

"They're like human news apps, they're the best kind."

Friends play an important part in the 33-year-old star's life and she loves to "gather" them together for evenings of food and music.

She told Stylist magazine: "You spend so much of your life travelling. You pick people up as you go along.

"My parents have friends who they've had since before we were born and those friends have now become my parents when I travel.

"I have adopted their friends and they have adopted me so now I wish that for myself.

"My mother has this group they call the 'mom squad' and all the women who bring me up and share news about what's going on in my life together were a support group for her when everything [winning an Oscar] was happening.

"I think I've inherited that, you hold on to people for a long time. I like to gather my friends together. I have them all over for dinner. I'd cook a whole fish with kale and rice. There'd be a lot of talking with good music."
