Jared Leto poked fun at romance rumors between himself and Lupita Nyong’o during his acceptance speech at yesterday’s Independent Spirit awards. The best supporting actor winner thanked everyone under the sun, including his “future ex-wife.”
The Dallas Buyers Club actor, who played a transgender woman Rayon in the flick, dedicated his award to the “36 million people who’ve died of AIDS and the 35 million who are living with HIV and AIDS around the world today.” He also gave a special shoutout to homemade burritos, designers who make size-12 heels, and “all the women I’ve been with and all the women who think they’ve been with me.”
But, the most-talked about moment came when he thanked his “future ex-wife, Lupita.”
“I’m thinking about you baby,” he said to the 12 Years a Slave breakout star.
The alleged lovebirds have yet to confirm or deny a relationship, but we must say Jared looked real cozy at the ceremony with birthday girl Lupita and her mother, Dorothy Nyong’o. (Check out the photo above.)
The 31-year-old beauty also joked about the dating rumors during a recent appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” When the talk show host asked about her relationship with Jared, she replied: “I thought Miley Cyrus broke us up…That was the last thing I heard.”
Well played Jared and Lupita, well played.
