Is Jared Leto Dating Lupita Nyong’o?
The 42-year-old Leto took a break from his duties as frontman for rockers 30 Seconds to Mars to portray a transgendered AIDS patient in ‘Dallas Buyers Club.’ Newcomer Nyong’o, 30, is up for her role as a brutalized slave in ’12 Years a Slave.’ Both were nominated in the supporting acting categories and both are considered shoo-ins to win.
The demands of the movie awards season mean that fellow nominees see one another many times at several different events. As front-runners, Jared and Lupita have attended a bunch of the same awards shows and parties. They even posed next to each other on that epic Vanity Fair cover celebrating this year’s Oscar nominees.
But both are also in NYC for Fashion Week festivities, and now whispers suggesting there’s something more going on between them. Spotted at a table in the Crosby Street Hotel on Wednesday (Feb. 12), a source reports, “They were huddled at a corner table together looking very close.”
Perhaps they will have new romances to go along with those shiny new Oscars?
