Lupita Nyong’o joked about the false rumors linking her to Jared Leto on Friday’s “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” Check out the video below!

Asked about the bogus reports, which Gossip Cop was the first to debunk, Nyong’o cracked, “Ah, but I thought Miley Cyrus broke us up!”

“That was the last thing I heard,” quipped Nyong’o.

The 12 Years a Slave star was referring to the fact that just days after tabloids claimed she and Leto were an item, Us Weekly reported that he and Cyrus were “hooking up.”

Of course, both rumors were untrue, but Nyong’o’s sense of humor shows she has what it takes to overcome some of the nonsense that comes with being a celebrity.
