Co-stars end up dating each other all the time, and the award season may have pushed Oscar nominees Lupita Nyong'o, 30, and Jared Leto, 42, together.
The two were spotted Wednesday night at a table at the Crosby Street Hotel, after attending New York Fashion Week events. Nyong'o was front row at Calvin Klein, and Leto made a late and loud entrance to Jeremy Scott.
According to Page Six, a witness said, "They were huddled at a corner table together looking very close."
Page Six goes on to say that the two actors have been very close this award season, which has sparked conversation about the chemistry between the twosome.
The two have seen a lot of each other at various events, and they were recently both featured in the Vanity Fair Hollywood Issue. This is natural since he is nominated for best supporting actor for his role in "Dallas Buyers Club," and she is also nominated for an Oscar for "12 Years a Slave."
Daily Mail adds that though the two supporting actor nominees were chummy at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, where a picture of them has the actor holding on to Nyong'o, Jared Leto was also trying to cozy up to English "Game of Thrones" actress Emilia Clarke.
While E! reporter Giuliana Rancic was interviewing Clarke, Leto came over and threw his arm around the 26-year-old star.
He then refused to talk about anything but Clarke, saying, "Have you looked into her eyes? They're absolutely insane."
In the past, Leto has been tied to Ashley Olsen, Cameron Diaz and Scarlet Johansson. And Lupita Nyong'o had an on-set romance with her co-star in "12 Years a Slave" Chiwetel Ejiofor.
Guess we'll all be glued to our TVs to try to find any hints of a romance come March 2.
