The star shot to global fame after portraying Shuri in the 2018 Marvel blockbuster, but being so easily recognised has been a drawback when it comes to trying to find love online - something her close friend has been encouraging her to explore.
Asked by Dazed magazine if she often thinks about finding love, she replied, "Of course...! I just need to meet the one person that's for me and that's it. Done. I don't need to do all that website stuff (online dating)."
Wright also explains she hasn't been able to escape the famous "Wakanda Forever!" salute used throughout the comic book movie - an issue her friend doesn't have to deal with on dating apps.
"She has the benefit of exploring without somebody going, 'Oh my God! Wakanda Forever!' " the actress shared. "She doesn't have that problem."
Also she's often asked why she didn't date her fellow stars. "Everybody's like, 'Hey, you have successful friends - they're cute,' and I'm like, 'Yeah, but they're dating every girl they fancy," she said. "You don't want that. Like oh, dang - you've got five chicks? I'm not trying to be number six. I'm just trusting that I will find the person that's for me when the time is right. My friends have told me I'm too passive. They're like, 'You need to do something about it.' "
