Lupita Nyong'o is on fire! The Star Wars: The Force Awakens actress is taking a well deserved break from the limelight to enjoy some rest and relaxation in the beautiful Dominican Republic.

The 32-year-old Academy Award winner posted a picture of herself leaping in the ocean on Tuesday wearing a bright red one-piece bathing suit, a pair of aviators, a woven sunhat and one gigantic smile. "#PicesPowerCharge" she captioned the snap.

The photo's effervescence is something fans have come to expect from Nyong'o, who explained how she developed a more playful nature in InStyle's December 2015 issue.

"I cut all my hair off when I was 19. I used to be very self-conscious, but being able to free myself from thinking that hair makes me beautiful was liberating. I am not what grows out of my head or just what I wear. This realization has made me more playful," she told InStyle. "That's what I love about the red carpet too. There's nothing normal about the experience, but I find it to be a performance opportunity, and I embrace it."
