Jared Leto is pretty obviously jonesing for a piece of Lupita Nyong’o. Here are four times we caught them flirting — including last night’s SAG Awards.
1. The 2014 Independent Spirit Awards
Leto publicly revealed his crush on Nyong’o for the first time in his acceptance speech. “I want to thank all the women I’ve been with and all the women who think they’ve been with me,” he said. “And also my future ex-wife, I’m talking to you, Lupita Nyong’o!” Hope she gets a prenup!
2. The 2014 MTV Movie Awards
In an attempt to play up the obvious chemistry between the pair, MTV had Nyong’o present Leto with his award for Best On-Screen Transformation. “That’s an award in itself to get that from her,” he said. Ooh la la.
3. Paris Fashion Week Spring 2014
The pair was spotted together at the Miu Miu show and Nyong’o later posted a selfie collage of the two on Instagram.
4. The 2015 SAG Awards
While the pair presented the award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Miniseries or Television Movie, Leto wrapped his arm around Nyong’o’s waist and pulled her closer to him as she giggled. Later that evening at an after-party, a source told Us Weekly the couple was “very flirty.”
“He came in and spoke to Harvey [Weinstein] for a second, than raced right for Lupita,” the insider said. “He hugged her and started whispering to her quietly,” adding that he “dragged her right to the dance floor.”
And Twitter agrees with us that Leto and Nyong’o need to stop fooling around and… well, start fooling around.
It's comforting to see that Jared Leto is still just as obsessed with Lupita Nyong'o as he was last year. #SAGAwards
