What Really Happened Between Lupita Nyong'o And Jared Leto?


Lupita Nyong’o and Jared Leto first sparked dating rumors after they were spotted together on numerous occasions during awards season in 2014. Both actors won the best supporting categories at the 86th Academy Awards that year — Nyong’o for her performance in “12 Years a Slave,” and Leto his role as Rayon in the 2013 hit film “Dallas Buyers Club.” 

In February 2014, a month before the Oscars, Nyong’o and Leto were seen cozying up at the Crosby Street Hotel in New York City while out on what appears to be a date, according to Page Six. “They were huddled at a corner table together, looking very close,” an eyewitness said of the two. However, when asked about Leto during an appearance on “The Ellen Show” weeks later, Nyong’o only laughed and poked fun at the romance rumors. “Ah, but I thought Miley Cyrus broke us up,” she said, referencing another tabloid gossip linking Leto with Cyrus. “That was the last thing I heard.” 

“It’s crazy, cause when I read these rumors, they’re so detailed that even I start to question whether they’re true or not,” she added. “I know I’ve believed them in the past and now I guess I can’t believe anything.” At the time, Leto himself kept mum about the rumors, but did speak to OK! Magazine about sharing a “special” bond with Nyong’o. “We were both nominated for Academy Awards and that makes it a very special thing,” he told the publication. “You share a class right? It’s like the class of 2014.”
