The Truth Behind Jared Leto and Lupita Nyong’o’s RelationshipJared Leto, Thirty-Seconds To Mars frontman, and Lupita Nyong’o, Twelve-Years a Slave actress and Oscar winner, were seen together at the SAG awards.

On camera, the chemistry between the two was electric and it was obvious that they are attracted to each other. Rumors started flowing following their announcement of Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Miniseries or Television Movie at the SAG awards. Leto pulled Nyong’o close on stage and the gossip crowd kept eyes on the pair at the afterparty.
Lupita was very comfortable with Leto, they “looked cozy chatting in a corner. Very cozy. And they continued the closeness together on the dance floor,” a party goer claimed to Hollywood Life.
But alas, after all the media frenzy, the rumors came to a screeching halt this evening when a close friend told Hollywood Life, “Jared and Lupita are super super close and really good friends. It definitely could have been looked at as a major flirt fest but they are so close from spending so much time in last years award season that they just started from where they left off, the affection comes from a friendly place and not a budding relationship. They are not dating.”
