It’s been no less than five years since Lupita Nyong’o and Jared Leto sparked dating rumors but it looks like they are not only still in contact but are also closer than ever! The Black Panther actress opened up about what kind of relationship they have.
During an interview for Net-a-Porter’s digital magazine, PorterEdit, Lupita shared that ‘Jared Leto, he is still on speed dial, since we were on that [Oscar] journey together and he is so embracing of me.’
She went on to address their undeniable chemistry back in 2014 during the award season.
However, according to the actress ‘There was an intimacy that grew from that, that goes beyond the dating rumors, beyond all that.’
Not only did the two have a lot of chemistry that got people to ship them pretty much just like they do now with Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, but Jared added to the rumors, even more, when he shouted Lupita out in a flirty way.
While at the Film Independent Spirit Awards, as he was being awarded the ‘Best Supporting Actor’ title Jared said: ‘To my future ex-wife Lupita…I’m thinking about you, baby.’ Gasp!
She stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show that year, and the woman made fun of the romance speculations.
Lupita also joked about another rumor saying: ‘Ah, but I thought Miley Cyrus broke us up. That was the last thing I heard.’
She referred to the fact that Miley was also linked to Jared at the time.
‘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. I know I have believed them in the past and now I guess I cannot believe anything,’ Lupita added.
