Before Jared Leto thanked his mom in his emotional Academy Awards acceptance speech Sunday night, there were other special woman he couldn’t forget.
Those included his romantic conquests, and he added fuel to the tabloid fire by mentioning one familiar headline-making “future ex-wife.”
And it’s not Miley Cyrus.
As Leto swept award season with his litany of trophies for Dallas Buyers Club, taking home the win Saturday at the Independent Spirit Awards in Santa Monica, Calif. was no surprise.
But his ridiculously random list of thank yous was.
“In case this is the last time I get to thank anyone, I wrote down a couple of names,” he said on stage.
In a memorable acceptance speech, the rocker/actor thanked German poet Hermann Hesse, ice hockey legend Wayne Gretzky, homemade burritos, the inventor of the zipper, and “the seven billion people on the planet.”
And, most importantly, “all the women I’ve been with and all the women who think they’ve been with me.”
Especially, fellow Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong’o, with whom he’s reportedly been romancing from coast to coast.
“And [to] my future ex-wife Lupita! I’m thinking about you,” who took it in stride, smiling at her table alongside her 12 Years a Slave cast.
