Could all of last year's Lupita Nyong'o and Jared Leto shipping finally have paid off?
Fans have been salivating at the thought of "Jupita" becoming a thing since the 2014 awards season. And after their adorable interaction at the SAG Awards last night, many people's hopes went into overdrive. No, really:
Well, lucky for you (and all of us), Yahoo can confirm reports that the two took their flirty friendship out on the town following the show. The Star Wars actress, 31, and Thirty Seconds to Mars rocker, 43, hit up Weinstein and Netflix's afterparty at the Sunset Tower in West Hollywood.
The Oscar-winning duo arrived separately but hung out together for most of the night, particularly on the dance floor.
"They joined the Orange Is the New Black cast for a dance off and looked like they were having a blast together," says a partygoer. "Jared and Lupita were laughing, flirting, and just having a blast together the entire time. They looked really cute! Jared was definitely all about it."
Heineken, Meiomi Wines, and Red Bull champagne cocktails fueled the star-studded crowd — which also included Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette, and Andy Samberg — throughout the night.
So are they BFFs or something more? Much to our dismay, Jared and Lupita left separately, although Us Weekly reported that the actor told her to text him later.
The duo struck up a great friendship during awards season last year, but shot down dating rumors at the time.
"Ah, but I thought Miley Cyrus broke us up," Nyong'o told Ellen DeGeneres last February poking fun at tabloid rumors. "That was the last thing I heard. It's crazy, cause when I read these rumors, they're so detailed that even I start to question whether they're true or not… I know I've believed them in the past and now I guess I can't believe anything."
Hey… a lot can change in a year. After all, Nyong'o did have a boyfriend at the time, but according to Us Weekly she is now single.
We're on the Jupita bandwagon. How could you not be?
