Award-season darling Lupita Nyong'o appeared on The Ellen Degeneres Show on Friday, looking perfect—as per usual—in a sleeveless double-breasted vest and shorts.

Nyong'o is also a dancing, smiling ball of charm and wit. She dished about that pesky rumor that she and actor Jared Leto are an item. She didn't outright deny the claim, but she did explain why Miley Cyrus might be the reason they're no longer together. Home wrecker.

She also talks about that time she was almost killed by an elephant. Watch:
