All awards season, supporting actor and actress frontrunners Jared Leto and Lupita Nyong’o have been photographed together in various states of closeness. She is the Mexican-born, Kenyan-raised, Yale-educated star of 12 Years a Slave and he is an actor/rockstar and, admit it, you still have a crush on Jordan Catalano. It just feels right. These two have got to get together.
Anyway, for those, like us, who are rooting on LuLeto (still workshopping the nickname) Page Six reports today that they are, in fact, getting romantic:
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.”
Meanwhile, if you’re not completely sold on why these two should be together, our older sister’s coolest friend, The Frisky, has put together a slideshow to convince you. You should check it out.
Happy Valentine’s Day, Lupita and Jared!
