Lupita Nyong'o is the latest award season darling , and with her newfound fame comes plenty of rumors. She addressed one with good humor when she sat down on The Ellen DeGeneres Show for an interview airing today. After Ellen DeGeneres brought up the news that she's dating Jared Leto , Lupita responded, "Ah, but I thought Miley Cyrus  broke us up. That was the last thing I heard."
Jared isn't the only guy who has been getting close to Lupita this award season. She's won the hearts of many sexy stars , from Matthew McConaughey  to Pharrell Williams — and taken plenty of photos along the way. Watch the video to see her chat about Jared and get a special sparkly gift from Ellen, and then tune in to the Academy Awards on March 2 to see if she takes home her biggest honor of the year. And if you're rooting for her, be sure to vote for her in our Oscars ballot !
