Lupita Nyong’o and Jared Leto: 5 Signs that Point to Romance

Lupita and Jared
Are Jared Leto and Lupita Nyong'o dating?
Rumors about a romance between Lupita Nyong’o and Jared Leto have been flying around since last year’s award season, but the duo continues to deny there’s anything going on.

However, when you look at all the signs–especially after all the flirtation at last night’s SAG Awards–they point to some serious love potential.

Have a look at what’s causing us to think that there’s more to the Jupita story and decide for yourself…

1. Lupita is single. Sources tell Us Weekly that Lupita broke things off from her rapper boyfriend K’naan at the end of last year. So she’s definitely single and ready to mingle.

2. The chemistry is obvious.  The famous duo presented the award for Outstanding Male Actor in a TV Movie or Miniseries last night at the SAG Awards, and everyone noticed how flirty they were together.  Leto couldn’t keep his hands off her!

3. They love being around each other.  After the SAG Awards, Nyong’o and Leto hit up the Weinstein-Netflix after-party at the Sunset Tower in West Hollywood together, dancing and hanging out together throughout the night.  “They were together most of the night, whether they were outside chatting or inside dancing,” an insider tells E! News.

4. They spend time alone together.  The two got cozy last week on a lunch date at Joan’s on Third restaurant in Studio City, Calif.  The 12 Years a Slave actress didn’t mind dressing down in gym clothes with the 30 Seconds to Mars singer, who rocked a comfy flannel.

5. They’ve never actually denied dating. Though Nyong’o has laughed at the tabloids surrounding the “romance,” and Leto joked about the actress being his “future ex wife,” they’ve never actually denied the speculation… Which leads us to believe there might be a spark of something there.

I mean, come on!  Even their love story is awesome: they both took home the Oscar for Supporting Roles the same year, they’re both idols, and they’re both incredibly fashionable.  They’re destined to be together…. It’s happily ever after in our eyes!
