Love is in the air this week, even Oscar Nominees need Valentines! Jared Leto and breakout actress Lupita Nyong’o were spotted enjoying a romantic dinner for two this week in New York City during Fashion Week. Rumors have been circulating for weeks now that Jared and Lupita were hooking up, but this is the first time the couple has been seen together on an actual date and not an event that they were working or attending. Fans began questioning whether they were involved when multiple sources reported Jared and Lupita were getting cozy together during the Golden Globes last month.
Lupita Nyong’o rocketed to super stardom after her award-winning role in the 2013 film 12 Years A Slave. She landed an Oscar Nominee for the part she played in the controversial film, and is up for Best Supporting Actress at the 2014 Oscar Awards. Ironically, Jared Leto has been nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar this year for his role in the movie Dallas Buyers Club. How cute would it be if Leto and Nyong’o won his and hers Oscars?
A source told the New York Post that Lupita and Jared were having a romantic dinner Wednesday night at Crosby Street Hotel. According to Page Six, Jared Leto and Lupita Nyong’o “were huddled at a corner table together looking very close.” Both actors were in New York City this week for Fashion Week, and working separate events, but they managed to slip away to enjoy a quite date together.
Do you think Lupita Nyong’o and Jared Leto have what it takes to be the next Hollywood power couple?
