Academy Award nominee Lupita Nyong’o recently stopped by ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ and addressed rumors that she was hooking up with fellow nominee Jared Leto.
The ’12 Years a Slave’ actress is garnering much praise for her work in the Oscar-nominated film, but DeGeneres noted that she was also starting to pop up in the celebrity rumor mill.
“You’re actually in tabloids as well, which means you’ve really made it,” DeGeneres joked. “‘Cause there’s rumors that you and Jared Leto are together.”
“Ah, but I thought Miley Cyrus broke us up,” Nyong’o responded, laughing. “That was the last thing I heard.”
Indeed, reports of N’yongo’s supposed relationship with the ‘Dallas Buyers Club’ actor were thwarted when rumors began to surface that Leto was actually hooking up with the twerking queen, Miley Cyrus.
“It’s crazy ’cause when I read these rumors, I mean, they’re so detailed that even I start to question if they’re true or not,” Nyong’o told the host.
But it looks as if she has put this one to rest — and with a great attitude.
