Well this is a curious couple: apparently rumours abound that Lupita Nyong’o, possibly the most beautiful woman ever, and Jared Leto, are dating. I say “curious couple” because I can no longer picture Jared Leto dating anyone. Maybe a cactus. I could see him bringing a small cactus with him to events and calling it his “wife.” He’d show up in a wide-brimmed hat and skinny tux, clutching the cactus in a diamond-studded pot,and say, “Please, no personal questions about my wife.”
Anyway, here’s what Page Six is saying:
The pair, who are up for Best Supporting Actress and Actor, were spotted alone together at a table at the intimate Crosby Street Hotel early Wednesday evening.
They were cozying up between attending numerous Fashion Week shows and events, and according to a witness, “They were huddled at a corner table together looking very close.”
Another source said Nyong’o was staying at the Soho hotel for a night after flying into town from LA for Calvin Klein’s fashion show.
There have been whispers during Hollywood’s awards season about the off-screen chemistry between Leto and Nyong’o. The two have stayed close together at the Golden Globes and other events leading up to the March 2 Oscars. They even appear side-by-side on the cover of Vanity Fair’s Hollywood issue with Julia Roberts and George Clooney.
Oh wait, they were on a magazine cover together? Case closed, they’re TOTALLY doing it.
