    Lupita fan Says:

    @Zooma: You are correct! They may not be dating, but there’s definitely an attraction there. Whether they act on it, is to be seen.

    Fabulous girl! who cares about the rumors? besides aren’t they both single? I hope they both just go on with their lives/careers and keep their private lives private.

    Nineta Says:

    Nah…. i don’t think they are dating…. she is 30 years old, she is a Yale graduate (so i hear) therefore she has brains and she is classy. We all know that Jared loves girls not over 22 years old, blond, models (mostly) brainless, trashy and without personality so that he can control them. She is way to good for him.

    I love how Lupita is so up to date to the minute with the latest Jared rumor! LOL He is very charismatic…and Lupita seems like a fun gal.
    Wishing them the best on Oscar night.

    Lupita can do better than Jared. I do not think there was anything to the rumor in the first place.

    Thank goodness! Says:

    @pink: I don’t hate Jared Leto or dislike him, but he is not on Lupita’s level. Looking at her, I see class and refinement. Looking at him, I see a nice guy who probably lives life on the edge — drugging, partying and what not. Sorry folks, but the black woman DOES NOT have to take just ANY white man. Yea, some black females think they do (and plenty of white men think black women are supposed to put them on a pedestal), but those black women have low-self esteem or problems accepting who they are. There is nothing wrong with Lupita dating or marrying out of her race, but please, at least a man on her level, and a man who doesn’t act like he is better than her. In these relationships especially, people have to treat each other equally (have deep love AND respect). Those are the interracial relationships that are beautiful. I wouldn’t accept anything less.

    Love ,Love,Love Lupita. she is a rarity in Hollywood standard of celebrity or actresses this days. She reminds me of a black Audrey Hepburn and Natalie Portman. I also love Jared Leto but when it comes to standards he is beneath her. I don’t think the likes of her will date someone who is allegedly infected with STD from dating a porn star called Tia Tequila. I could believe the rumor between him and Miley Cyrus though. LOL.

    Lupita fan Says:

    She’s very smart. There’s no denial. Something going but she’s keeping it private. Jared will have to bring it to get this one. There’s an attraction but will he be man enough to follow through.

    thewaysheis Says:

    @thank goodness, you’ve said it all. That was my thought when I heard the rumour!! Such a classy girl wouldn’t date that drug addict!! Nothing much nothing less.

    E. Says:

    @Thank goodness!: Just saying, Jared is straight edge + vegan. He lives a very healthy lifestyle. And most of the time he is working, so he has no time to party. It’s such a stereotype to think now that as he’s a rockstar + actor, he has a really crazy life that includes drugs and alcohol. Well, in his case, you’re wrong. :)

    Don't believe it all Says:

    @E.: Exactly E!!! We has a society really needs to stop putting people in little boxes where WE think they belong. He’s probably healthier than every single person who posted and had something negative to say because of what they believe to be the truth.

    You Don't know her Says:

    Don’t assume who Lupita will or won’t date. You do not know her personally nor do you know Jared either.

    omg Says:

    what snobbery on this thread? people being beneath and how come this conclusion? By looking at a man’s past dating history or profession? Jared is a vegetarian, does not do drink nor drugs. He’s a dedicated & driven artist in every sense of the word who lives for artistic expression. He’s extremely well spoken, easily giving the best acceptance speeches this awards season. Lupita, has chosen a career in the arts so she can easily connect with Jared’s creative spirit. Is that so hard to comprehend?

    EJ Says:

    I just adore her. She’s so good at these interviews too… “oh that’s so pretty” lol…she’s so pretty!

  23. 23
    :) Says:

    Not on Lupitas level???? Is this a joke. This girl is so far an IT-girl. She had one small role on a good movie. Why people are acting like she is too good for Jared. He is a worldwide star who earned his stardom through delivering continuously good work. Lupita had just ONE role, so far for the cinema.

    QT Says:

    @thewaysheis: These comments are beyond ridiculous! If you do not have basic common sense you should stay home and keep quiet. Drug addicts or anyone who lives the “rock ‘n roll” lifestyle do not have good skin, clear eyes, fit bodies, look 15 years younger than their actual age and definitely do not live highly productive lives (entrepreneur, actor, musician). He’s not “clean cut” (aka BORING) he’s an artist. I think the juxtaposition of their looks is really attractive and complementary. I think they are equally intelligent as they are equally articulate. His SAG speech was awesome, and throughout the awards season, whether respectfully dealing with an ignorant heckler or helping 84 June Squibb up the risers at the nominee luncheon, his responses to any situation shows that yes he too has “class”… which is a stupid term by the way.

    QT Says:

    @Nineta: We all “know”? I don’t think any of us “know” anything. We have opinions, some of base it on what unnamed sources say and some of us base it on what we see caught in videos or people who put their names behind what they say.
