Lupita Nyong'o has officially made it in Hollywood -- and in the tabloids!

In an upcoming appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," the "12 Years a Slave" star reveals how much her life has changed in the past year.

While the actress gained notoriety for her award-winning performance in the film, she wasn't exactly prepared to be the topic of false magazine stories.

"But now, so you’re actually in tabloids which means you’ve really made it," Ellen explains. "Because there’s rumors that you and Jared Leto are together."

"Ah, but I thought Miley Cyrus broke us up. That was the last thing I heard," Lupita quipped back about the recent dating rumors that surfaced between Jared and Miley.

"But you know it's crazy cause when I read these rumors they're so detailed that even I start to question whether they're true or not," the 30-year-old added.

We love Lupita!
