Lupita Nyong’o & Jared Leto partied with Terry Richardson in Paris: Nooo!


Yesterday, we discussed the fact that Lupita Nyong’o and Jared Leto seem to be spending a lot of time together lately. They were both in Paris for the MiuMiu show, and I guess they’re still there, and they’re still partying and hanging together. Only now it’s gone from a relatively cute “I wonder if they’re together” gossip story to “OMG, Lupita, you in danger girl” story. Because now Jared has introduced Lupita to his very good friend, Uncle Terry Richardson. RUN LUPITA RUN.

All of these photos are from Terry’s Diary, and they’re dated March 11 (yesterday). Lupita, Jared and Terry all partying together in Paris? Ugh. I mean, I’ll give Lupita a pass on associating with Terry… for now. This is the first time she’s met him, probably, and I could see how Jared would be like, “You have to meet Terry, he’s the best!” And Lupita didn’t want to be rude. It will be a different situation altogether if Lupita starts doing magazine editorials shot by this pervert.

Also, there’s a new story going around about Terry’s complete and utter grossness, his perversions, his awfulness. He basically uses his “photography” gig to assault young women and it’s beyond disgusting. You can read the story here on Jezebel, but beware – the details are NSFW.

As for Jared and Lupita… lord, I don’t even know. I think we ran through all of the possibilities yesterday. My gut is still telling me that Jared is trying to get with Lupita and she’s just being nice to him. She’s probably used to men falling all over themselves for her.

    I really don’t think very many people know how gross Terry is. I doubt Lupita sits at home Googling him.

    With that being said, she looks freaking adorable in these pictures.

    • QQ says:

      Also i doubt that he pulls all this gross shit he does with actual real starts with real power, so They might just have a hard time even believing that any of it is possible cause it is so outrageous

    • FLORC says:

      It’s really hard for me to believe no one is Lupita’s circle/team didn’t speak up about him.
      Or that Terry didn’t immediately give odd the Creep vibe.

      • Lindy79 says:

        This. I’ve no doubt that *most* celebs don’t google everyone/everything they come in contact with or frequent gossip sites etc but they have people who do, people whose job it is to find out what is being said about them, how popular they are. Lupita is fairly new to the game so maybe they’re not as on the ball as they should be but I find it hard to believe that someone in her group hasn’t at least read something about him.
        I can only hope that they’re paying attention now and will advise her not to pose for him.

      • bns says:

        Not as many people are aware of Terry as you think. And creep vibe? Have you met him in person? He may come off as a perfectly nice gentleman in real life. Just because you get those vibes when you look at pictures of him doesn’t mean that that’s how he comes off in person.

        I just don’t get why people are mad at Lupita for this. As far as we know, to her, Terry could just be a friend of Jared Leto’s. We don’t know how much she actually knows about him. Some of you guys are judging her for this and being irrational.

      • FLORC says:


        I have not met Terry Richardson ever. I assume the creep vibe and have 1 friend that did meet him in a casual setting. She got the creep vibe hard. And the people who know of Terry are not the average joe as much as they are PR or professionals that work with celebs. His reputation precedes him.

        I have met Jared Leto on a few occasions. Both in a professional and casual setting. He’s incredibly charming initially. It’s all downhill in an instant after that.
        And i’m not the only 1 who’s seen him go from nice to snapping violently at someone for what many believe to be trivial reasons. Not to mention he talks down to people like it’s normal. I wonder if Lupita has witnessed this. I hope not.

        And I don’t think anyone is angry at Lupita for this. Not really. If this hanging out goes into a friend and casual lunches that pedestal she’s placed on will start to crack.

    • Kelly says:

      She probably doesn’t know. This is the first time I’ve heard of this guy anyway, I had to click on the Jezebel link to see what all the fuss is about. I bet you anyone who isn’t really interested in the fashion world doesn’t know who he is.

    • Milla says:

      Mark Whalberg’s wife spoke publicly against Terry and his “work”. Everyone knows, no one does anything. He has powerful friends.

  2. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    I am so grossed out right now, I can’t tell you. Please, please don’t ruin this lovely young woman, Hollywood. Please.

    • Nicolette says:

      Unfortunately that probably is what will be, though I hope not. She seems to have an innocence about her and they will be all over it. Hopefully she has the sense and the right people around her not to let that happen.

    • mytbean says:

      sigh… here we go.

      She’s not innocent by any means – she’s a grown woman. But yeah, she’s already attracting people like Leto and Terry and posing candidly with them? It’s over before it started.

      Watch for the light to go out in her eyes. I give her a couple of years. But pretty soon they’ll be dead and jaded like every starlet that get’s gang groped by that industry.

      My cup lemon cake buzz is officially killed. :(

    • Mario_Fatale says:

      LOL Aww I feel you @GoodNamesAllTaken , I was soooo annoyed to even see that #%^*& Jared Leto, I freaked out. I never thought I’d see Terry and Lupita in one photo – I am positive he ( Jared ) introduced Lupita to this #*;%^^ That is Terry :) Urrrggh I need a coffee :?

  3. Jaderu says:

    OMG Lupita! Take those glasses off! Lord knows where they have been or what they have on them!

    • Splinter says:

      My thoughts exactly! Those glasses must be filthy

    • lauren says:

      Exactly!! Take those glasses off and run as fast as you can!

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      My thoughts EXACTLY.

      I don’t want to imagine what’s been on those glasses.

      Gross. Plus who wears glasses of someone who they just met–you know Terry was the one who told her to do it for the photo…

      • Yep says:

        “Plus who wears glasses of someone who they just met–you know Terry was the one who told her to do it for the photo…”

        People I barely know or have just met will often want to “see” my glasses.

      • IzzyB says:

        People ask to try on my glasses a lot too. Me and my friends all swapped around glasses to compare blindness in the first few days of knowing each other. Doesn’t bother me unless they’ve got a huge melon head.

  4. freebunny says:

    She’s lovely but it’s just a question of time before people get tired and realize that she’s just not as perfect as she seems.
    I still like her but her “friends” are gross and perhaps it’s a hint about who she really is.

    • V4Real says:

      I agree. People need to stop acting like Lupita is so naive. She’s a thirty something year old woman. She’s not a child. She most likely already knew who Terry was.

      Lupita is not hanging with Jared just to be nice to him. She’s hanging with him because that’s what she wants to do.

      • MrsBPitt says:

        I agree…and I’m sure EVERYONE in Hollywood has heard the dirt on Uncle Terry…and, no, you don’t HAVE to be polite…if someone said, “c’mon over here, and meet my friend, Jeffrey Dahlmer”, would you stand there, just to be polite. There is nothing wrong with saying “I would rather not”…

      • Allie says:

        Agree with everything you said x 10000

      • Dani2 says:

        @MrsBPitt I just don’t believe that she hasn’t an inkling about some of the stuff Terry’s been up to. When you’re within Hollywood, people talk. Even her befriending Jared is shady as hell – that guy is a douche, albeit a mostly attractive one.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Actually, I didn’t realize or remember that she was in her thirties. That does change my perspective somewhat.

      • HHazel says:

        +1 I agree with everything

        “Lupita is not hanging with Jared just to be nice to him. She’s hanging with him because that’s what she wants to do” THIS

      • FLORC says:

        Absolutely. I was thinking the same. To assume Lupita is just being polite and can’t form opinions on the character of others is silly.

        She’s smart, grown up, wise beyond her years. You can’t also claim she’s just being nice to Terry and Jared.

        This shouldn’t discredit her as a nice person who’s very intelligent. It does mean she’s flawed and has come to enjoy the company of the creepiest 2 guys that enjoy degrading women.

      • Beatrice says:

        So true–she’s not a naïve teenager. She’s with Jared because she wants to be and has almost certainly heard the dish on Uncle Terry.

      • littlestar says:

        Completely agree, V. I thought just by looking at those pictures, she’s looks pretty damn happy, so I doubt she’s hanging out with him “just to be nice”. She’s not 12 for the love of gahd, she’s 31. She doesn’t have to be “nice” to Jared Leto if she doesn’t want to.

        I think I am officially over her. Not that I was completely into her in the first place, but I definitely thought she seems like an interesting, beautiful woman. But seriously, as IF she doesn’t know about that sleeze ball Uncle Terry. If someone like me, a nobody in the middle of nowhere land, knows about his grossness, don’t tell me an Oscar winner who is the newest “It Girl” wasn’t told by others about his horribleness. She likes the attention. Her Instagram is a pretty good account of how into herself she is. Yes, even I will post the occasional picture of myself on my Instagram and Facebook, as do many other people, but hers is ALL her.

        I think she should start being careful, both with the image she is putting out there of herself and who she is hanging out with (Leto is a pretty unsavoury character imo too). I mentioned last week that I looked at her IMDB account and she has no upcoming future acting projects. Sure, she might have a modeling contract with MIU MIU, but she’s an ACTOR right? Not a model. I think that’s something she should be concerned about. I’d love for her to be able to succeed in HW, but NOT surround herself with shitty men.

      • FLORC says:


        She is said to be looking over a million scripts that now want her. I’m sure in a few weeks time her IMDB page will be littered with future projects.

        I also get super judgey over how often people post selfies and overly flattering pics of themselves. If she’s getting a big head I hope someone close to her will keep her grounded.

      • littlestar says:

        Hey Florc! I’m very interested in seeing what kinds of movies she’ll take on in the future. I really do hope she is able to obtain a long term career in HW.

      • nicegirl says:

        ITA. YUCK

    • Diana says:

      ALL of this! you can like her but don’t infantilize a grown woman just because you don’t wanna see a flaw in her.

    • Eleonor says:

      Agreed. Ok she’s talented and well educated but she is not a gift God send to us.

    • Gia says:

      Absolutely! Just because she played an interesting, strong character doesn’t in any way mean that she is immune from hanging with idiot and possibly being one herself. She’s still a young girl chasing her dream of being a star…time will tell I guess. Good PR only gets you so far…

  5. Tatjana says:

    Why is he called Uncle Terry?

  6. cloud&feather says:

    Dammit, Lupita! lol Since it’s over now and can’t be helped….just don’t pose for him! Just don’t pose for him! Just don’t pose for him!

    I didn’t know Uncle Terry from anywhere but this site and made the mistake of googling him. If you haven’t seen his tumblr, keep it that way. Yuck.

  7. lisa2 says:

    I just saw a story about Richardson on another site. It was beyond nasty and gross. I get that some actor/actresses/models think it is the cool thing to be photographed by this man. But I cant’ believe that they are unaware of the stories and his antics. Woody Allen has been attacked and people online and in the media have called him out on things. But Terry gets a pass.

    Lupita is young, but she is not dumb. Time for her and her people to stop having her attend all these parties and runway events. Sitting front seat at an event does not equal work. She needs to research who she is associating with.

    I find this man so so horrible and can’t believe women are still smiling next to him. So I guess women power and strength is only there unless you want this sack of shit to take you picture for a magazine. .

    • Jen says:

      It’s not that surprising that most people don’t know about what he does.

      1) It’s not like most celebrities spend time hanging out on the gossip sites where most of the stories about him are.

      2) he is very careful to ONLY prey on young and upcoming models who have no power. He knows that if he ever made gross advances towards anyone famous, his ass would get in trouble.

      3) So that’s why if anyone was to ask a famous person about the stories against him, they would probably say, “WHAT? But he’s always been so cool with ME and other famous people I know…”

      • lady mary. says:

        thats true , recently there was an article abt a models harrowing experience with Terry ,thats how he fools them making it all look oh hey this is normal ,see iam doin it ,everyone is doin it , join the fun ,hurrah, .
        jeez even when i type his name i can feel fungus growing on my keypad ,yikes

      • AG-UK says:

        I asked my husband about him as he is in the arts he said oh he’s an ok photographer but a bit of a pervert. I thought oh… he doesn’t read gossip sites

      • FLORC says:

        He’s not only know on gossip sites for being a creep. When a friend of mine was going to RISD there were numerous signs put up to warn students to avoid him. Apparently he prowled the campus and did some terrible things to a few students.

        If you know the name Terry Richardson it’s likely you know he’s a perv.

      • littlestar says:

        I have to agree and disagree with that. Yes, it’s up and coming models are who he mostly preys on. But what about Miley Cyrus and the disgusting photos she did a few months back with Richardson? She is very famous, but I have to argue that Miley doesn’t really know what she was doing. She was doing the photo shoot to be provocative and get attention, but she’s uneducated and personally, I find Miley to be quite dumb. While the photos definitely got her a lot of attention, they also brought her a lot of negative attention – I lost the tiny bit of respect for her after seeing that shoot – she just doesn’t have the ability to realize how poor those photos made her look. I guess technically he didn’t sexually assault her like he does to models, but he definitely took advantage of someone who doesn’t have the ability to realize she’s being taken advantage of.

      • Jen says:

        Miley Cyrus is 22 years old. She is a grown woman. She knows EXACTLY what she was doing, and she happily participated. She loved them. She loves that crap. She’s not being taken advantage of at all.

        And it’s not even close to a similar example of all the models who have been basically forced to perform sexual acts for him against their will.

      • littlestar says:

        To be blunt, which means I’m going to be mean – Miley Cyrus is 22 years old, but she’s a f*cking idiot. She is not smart. She has a limited education. She loves the negative attention she receives, even though a lot of it is degrading. She craves the instant gratification. So no, I do not agree that she knew FULLY what she was doing. Richardson, however, knew exactly what he was doing.

    • Flowerpot says:

      I read the Richardson story linked in the article above and I’m totally not surprised this predator is still in business. I must first state I hold Uncle Terry responsible for his depraved behavior. However, I find myself wondering, who is this “assistant” I consistently read about in nearly all of these disgusting articles? This person is clearly a participant. I’d love to see this woman confronted by a reporter to get her take on what’s going on here.

    • YuYa says:

      Lupita is 31 years old and a Yale graduate, not 16 and in High School. She should know better IMO. Terry is well known to be an abusive tool to unknown models and if this is who she is OK with hanging out with, I just lost quite a bit of respect for her. Gross.

    • GGG says:

      I think this is some kind of Hollywood initiation. Declass yourself and you’re in- next will probably be half naked shoots for Vogue. Name an up and comer who hasn’t crossed paths with Terry?

    • aquarius64 says:

      Watch Uncle Terry get charged a with a sex crime involving a minor (or several) and watch the stars run from him like the plague. He’s not on Woody Allen’s level -he’s glorified help – so I see Hollywood throwing him under the bus.

      Lupita, if you don’t want your reputation and career taking a hit you get as far away as possible. The press that loves you now will turn on you with a quickness as soon as the first nasty Richardson pictures surface.

  8. Tiffany27 says:

    Idec how this sounds, someone needs to set Terry Richardson on fire. He’s been an assailant for years and that story is just as horrifying as the other MANY stories about him.

  9. AG-UK says:

    No he isn’t still there he is on tour elsewhere in Europe. There are other photos too of he and that girl Lea whatever from Blue is the Warmest Colour and some other random person I don’t know. Also once this guy posts photos they are all on his website/tumblr nonsense. Photos never go away people.

  10. blue marie says:

    Well that’s disappointing, Lupita needs to run from both of them.

    • Marty says:

      Exactly! This actually isn’t the first time she’s taken photos with them because I remember seeing photos of the three of them last week. This is why I can’t get behind a Jared/Lupita hookup.

      Hopefully, she’s smart enought not to actually pose FOR Terry.

  11. Mia4S says:

    Lupita is a 31year old educated woman, she needs to do some research….fast.

  12. Jessica says:

    I just lost any respect I had for Lupita. Gross.

    Re the models experience with Terry: That’s assault and I really hope she got tested after.

    • bns says:

      Why? These pictures were taken at a dinner for the Miu Miu fashion show and a lot of celebrities were there and also photographed by Terry that night. It’s not like this was a friendly dinner just between Lupita, Jared, and Terry.

      • AG-UK says:

        exactly. it was taken last week, she ‘s probably back in Brooklyn wishing for spring

      • Jessica says:

        Because I don’t have any respect for anyone who hangs out with that guy. All those other people that were with him and willing to be photographed by him, I have no respect for them either. Just because you’re at a party with someone doesn’t mean you have to pose all friendly with them, or wear their nasty glasses.

      • AG-UK says:

        Also I hate that stupid thumbs up. What is that grown people and the twisted mouth. ughghgh. He took photos in LA as well at those pre Oscar parties with her mother.

    • roxy750 says:

      Me too.

  13. Cecilia says:

    Lupita is a grown woman. It is ultimately her choice to associate with whomever she pleases. She is not a child in danger of being tainted & when you think about it — we’re just beginning to discover things about this 30 year old woman.

    • Jessica says:

      Honestly, the fact that she can make her own choices in this situation makes it worse. If she is willingly hanging out with him and being photographed by him, then that says a lot about her. And it’s not positive.

      • Nick says:

        You’re assuming she’s be informed of his past behavior. Before coming to this site I knew who Terry was but I had no idea about his background. If I would have met him pre-visiting CB then I would have taken a pic with him too. I find it odd that you’re being so quick to judge.

        Lupita is just starting to make it in circles of the fashion/Hollywood world if she continues to pose for him then that’s reason to judge (like shit people give Jared) but for now I don’t know why it’s so hard to just give her the benefit of the doubt.

    • lisa2 says:

      YOU are right it is her choice. Just like the people that say they won’t see a Woody Allen movie. Just like people say they have no respect for anyone working with him. Cate B got flack for thanking Allen when she got her award.

      I really like Lupita.. but I think she needs to think about her associates. I side eye a lot of people based on who they associate with. I was taught and You are known by the company you keep. So yeah it may not be my business; but it is my choice to spend my money where I choose. And I choose not to buy any magazines that this creep snaps pictures in. And not spend it seeing films of people that hang out with him either.

  14. Oh no…super-gross.

    I’m pretty confident that Lupita doesn’t know how disgusting Terry is. Can’t give Leto that excuse though.

    That being said, I can’t help but think that Leto and Lupita are kinda cute together. Sure, she’s too good for him but they look like they have a lot of fun and a lot of chemistry together.

    • daisy says:

      Why does she get a pass and he doesn’t? Surely she must know his “thing” is to have everyone wear his glasses.

      • Oh my god..she gets a pass because she’s hanging out with her friend’s friend for one night–she’s not BFFs with Richardson like Leto.

        You’ve seriously never been out with a friend and they introduce you to their douchebag pal?
        It’s happened to me before and no, I didn’t storm off or throw a drink in his face, I dealt with it for the night. It’s really just basic social norms.

        I don’t try to impose my relationship ideals/standards on my friends nor do I talk shit about my friend’s friends to their face.
        I have enough respect for them to allow them to be friends with who they want to be friends with.
        …and no, they don’t have to like all of my friends either. *shrugs*

      • Nick says:

        I doubt it. It’s a strong possibility that Terry handed her the glasses and told her to pose with it.

        Terry’s disgusting behavior isn’t public knowledge. Unless you’re on sites like these or go searching for it, you would be unaware of his history. That’s why I’m giving Lupita a pass for now. Jared on the other hand has been friends with Terry for years. I bet people on here are going to be happy to have something negative to say about her now. Smh

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        Yeah, Terry isn’t really covered by the mainstream…I only know who he is because of this site. And I have a tumblr, but I don’t go on it very often–just to write.

        If she hangs out with him again, after this–then I’d say we can judge her.

      • @ Virg-I never knew anything about the dude until this site.
        But is she “hanging out” with him, though? Or is she just hanging out with Leto and taking a few pics with Terry?

        They obviously run in the same circles–it’s not like she’s sitting on Uncle Terry’s lap or making out with him.

        Man, I’m happy there’s not a camera handy when I have to go to industry networking events or conferences. You all would hate me for associating with some of the jackasses I have to talk to ;)

      • Kiddo says:

        @O’Kit, Unless they just ran into each other, which I doubt, Lupita is hanging out with Jared with some frequency. Jared had to have spoken of his friend, or at least Lupita would have seen his photo shoot with Terry. If you are going to engage in conversation with your friend’s friend, and they are famous, wouldn’t you do a search, simply for conversation ‘s sake, about their professional work and whatnot? Unless Lupita is the least intellectually curious person on the planet. She would at least want to know what contacts he had for her own career. Not buying that she doesn’t know or wasn’t told. No plausible deniability, IMO.
        Was this instance a Hollywood function and networking event or was it a private dinner party? We all have to hold our noses when dealing with the stink of people we don’t like, but this is more than that, or it appears to be more than that, I’ll put it that way.

      • Well none of us know for sure, Kiddo–it doesn’t make your conjecture any more/less valid than mine. But even if she DID know, I still don’t get the hand-wringing over this.

        As I posted on the Tilda thread, those of you who are expressing outrage on this thread need to come down harder on Swinton, because Richardson was invited to Swinton’s 53rd birthday at MOMA.

        Personally, I still love both actresses. I know this is celeb gossip, but subjectively, if I love an actress, I love her for her WORK, not her personal or professional relationships.
        FTR, I still love Blanchett as well, even though she did a Woody Allen film.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        Well someone said they were at the Miu Miu event/dinner in Paris–I would assume that Uncle Terry is there because he is a photographer, and both Lupita and Jared are there for the event as guests/faces or whatever…..

        So were they all put at the same table? I don’t think that I would willingly pose for a picture with that creep, even at a work event…..but she’s new and maybe she didn’t want to make waves??? But I still wouldn’t want to go anywhere near him–but I wouldn’t want to go near Leto either.

      • Dani2 says:

        @TOK But are those jackasses alleged sex offenders? I appreciate you offering up an alternate point of view but Terry really is at the height of the scumbag-meter.

      • @Virg-Maybe she knows that “general shadiness” and controversy surrounds Richardson, but doesn’t know the specifics? Or maybe like Kiddo says, she DOES know.

        I think our opinions on this situation are really subjectively-based (then again, I guess ALL opinions are) because I probably would pose for a photo, assuming it was networking-type thing.

        If it was a private party at a friend’s house? Well, I’d probably politely decline.

        Maybe that makes me a soulless sell-out and maybe I’m giving Lupita too much leeway but I think I’m just forming my opinion on how I would handle it. It’s much harder to say ‘no’ to a photo op when you’re surrounded by cameras and in a public situation. I also think that Lupita is still new on the scene, still trying to network and make connections. Eh….I simply don’t hate her for this.

        @dani2-No probably not but I suppose they could be. Still, some of those people do fall into the same category that I put pedophilia in, which is the Morally Reprehensible Category.
        I didn’t like talking to them and felt gross about it, but I did it anyway because my job called for it.

      • lucy2 says:

        I would imagine she’s been introduced to and photographed with literally hundreds, if not thousands of people since award season, so it’s possible this was a two minute thing and she didn’t know. But I hope someone fills her in and she stays away.

        I never heard of him before this site either.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        Well I know what I would do—I’m a sissy, I hate confrontation. So if I had been in her shoes, I would have politely declined to be in a picture with him, and I would’ve avoided being at his table–but maybe Jared brought him as a guest, or she had no choice over the seating charts.

        Where they are is not the place to accuse anyone of anything (true or not)–it’s a work function, so if I had to be seated near him, I would not initiate any conversation, but I wouldn’t outright ignore him.

        And maybe she does know that he’s shady–I know that a lot of people, even celebs (think Emma Thompson) only have a general idea of the shadiness of some people–like Polanski. Emma Thompson signed that Free Polanski petition after a friend called her and gave her some sanitized version of what went on, Emma said sure I’ll put my name on it, and then when she found out the real story, then she took her name off.

        Whenever I heard that Polanski was accused of statuatory rape–it was always under the guise of consensual sex with a sixteen year old–not that he drugged a 14 year old, and then anally raped her. I didn’t hear the full story until I came onto this site…but then again, I’m not in the industry.

        @TheOriginalKitten…I give up. Tried to respond, but got moderated out.

      • FLORC says:

        Isn’t that frustrating? It’s always my most detailed comments that I can never repeat word for word from memory.

        To the topic… Lupita can have the benefit of doubt because she IS the latest IT Girl and everyone is banging down her door to ang out or work with her. So, she can hang out with Terry and Jared for now, but if she becomes buddies with them well… Jared and Terry aren’t know for being humble in conversation. It would only relfect poorly on Lupita.

        This is what happens when people get praised and put on pedestals.

      • Kiddo says:

        @FLORC, Some subjects you just dare not speak of, regardless of how respectful or carefully worded you approach them. Take care. It’s been fun. :)

      • @ Kiddo–aw man sorry about that. It’s happened to me on many occasions as well. *hugs* If it’s any consolation I probably wouldn’t have responded because I’ve already over-commented and I don’t want people to think I’m defending Richardson in any capacity. Anyway, I know you feel really strongly about your disgust for him and I love that about you.

        I do agree with FLORC that we’re even now starting to see the public backlash and the fall from the pedestal with Lupita.
        I just think in the world of celeb misbehavior–so far, so good. I like her and I hope she doesn’t get drawn into Uncy Terry’s Terror Dome of Perversion.

    • Kiddo says:

      Everyone knows. First, as artists, I question their aesthetics; Uncle Terry’s photos suck balls. Secondly, their chumminess makes me question whether either of them are capable of empathy, for the victims. He has never been convicted, and all that, the girls all made it up, he’s soo cool…and vomit.


      • MrsBPitt says:

        exactly Kiddo! Some of the general public haven’t heard Terry, but I’m sure Hollywood know ALL about him…I’m not cutting her slack because she is Lupita…if that was Jennifer Lawrence, for example, no one would be giving her a break…

      • Dani2 says:

        @MrsBPitt Exactly. If this was Jennifer Lawrence or (lol) Shailene Woodley, there wouldn’t be talk of “b-but she doesn’t know any better!”

      • Peppa says:

        Thanks Kiddo. Uncle Terry’s pervy ways are WELL known in the industry, believe me. His photos do, in fact, suck balls. Anjelica Houston had some interesting revelations about Terry’s father Bob in her memoirs, and it looks like the apple didn’t fall far from the tree in this case.

      • nicegirl says:

        me too. zero respect

    • Kiddo says:

      @Virgilia Coriolanus, Lupita isn’t an outsider. She’s an insider in Hollywood and posed for MANY magazines. No way there isn’t talk about him.

      • Violet says:

        Right? I mean she has been in the Miuccia Prada fashion circle for almost a year and hanging out with them, so she is aware of who he is and the shadiness that surrounds him. Also to those saying that Tilda is also friends with Richarson, it may be true BUT the reason that he went to the MoMa tribute to her on her birthday is not a confirmation of this, as anyone could buy a seat there if they had the money. It also was sponsored by Chanel so the brand send invitations to many fashion insiders such as photographers, so it is probable that they invited him. It was not a private party for friends of Swinton, so I don’t know why people are dragging Tilda on this.

        By the way, I think whoever Nyong’o hangs out with is her business but putting her like some innocent girl who is just been nice is totally clueless and borderline offensive to her capacity of decision. She is an adult for god’s sake, stop portraying her like a helpless girl.

  15. lady mary. says:

    When i look at those pics ,i wish i could hook her onto a fishing pole and yank her away from predator Terry and his Fallen angel , is there no one else in this world that she can take selfies with ?Girl just stop with all the promotion with the wrong folks

  16. Felice says:

    I think it’s sad that Terry is so respected. The thing I’m thinking though is that he isn’t the only one who has been able to pull this crap with models. He’s just the one who is notorious for it.

    I hope Lupita knows better. Not that I condone his behavior, it seems that he would never try to do this with artists who are established. At least, I hope not.

  17. Lee says:

    Well, that didn’t take long. Eeeewww.

  18. lucy2 says:

    Ugh, Lupita, no. I hope someone fills her in and she stays away from him from now on.
    Instead of telling gossip blogs, these women he has assaulted need to go to the POLICE. If a hint of what has been said about him is true, then he deserves to be in jail. I realize many of them are probably afraid of losing their careers, but someone has to stand up to him or it’s just going to continue.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      Well it’s hard—because if they say anything publicly, they’re going to be known as the girl who slept with the ‘boss’ and then cried rape. It’s hard enough for a ‘regular’ person, but when celebrities are involved??

      Like I had an account, where I wrote a post on Jared Leto and his penchant for choking his groupies, sometimes. I made it clear that these were rumors, that this could be entirely untrue because it’s on the internet, etc–gave a big disclaimer, and said it was all my opinion of what I had seen and read of Leto—I had a ton of comments saying that I was basically a jelli h8ter, and how DARE I say something bad about someone who does charity work….

  19. Cammie says:

    I guess most of Hollywood ignores the stories about Pervy Terry because people like Oprah have taken pics with him…

    I hope Jared and Lupita are dating…they are cute together

    • Cecilia says:

      I’m thinking that many people are willing to turn a blind eye to Uncle Terry. What the reason is for this, I’m not sure. In a way it is very Woody Allen-esque.

      • YuYa says:

        Right? I don’t get it at all. He is not “powerful” in the sense that he owns a Studio or is a huge director. He is a fashion photographer who sucks at what he does! I want to know who he has some information on that everyone keeps laying out the red carpet for him. So mind-boggling.

  20. Andrea1 says:

    Good God after seeing this I feel terrible.
    Celebrities who associate with this man are gross by association

    • mayamae says:

      That was …… disturbing. The last picture was of a person with both penis and breasts. All of the girls look barely legal, and not necessarily happy to go along. Are the sex shots of Terry himself, or is he taking the pics? Yuck. And this is why I hate former models who push/strongly encourage their daughters to go into the industry. Besides the eating disorders, there are perverts like this everywhere.

      • Andrea1 says:

        @Mayamae who asked….. Are the sex shots of Terry himself, or is he taking the pics? Yes they are sex shots of Terry himself and others.
        After seeing it I wanted to wash my eyes with bleach! And no one who is friends with this creep should be given a pass. Including all those he has photographed for magazine covers and other photoshoots

    • Applapoom says:

      Why did I click on that? Urrgggh. He is so disgusting and if I were one of those models, especially the one that looks like she has jizz on her face I would feel traumatized. What an awful human being he is.

    • freebunny says:

      UGH!!!!!! What the hell is this??????????????
      Ok, forever judging people who are friends with him.
      He’s GROSS.
      It’s not art in any way, just porn.

      I can’t believe she hangs out with him, he’s a perv and it’s written on his face.

    • IzzyB says:

      I feel sick to my stomach. That’s not art in any way, it’s abuse.

      He’s a predator taking advantage of naive young models who don’t know how to get out of a bad situation.

  21. Alexis says:

    Eh, maybe Lupita and Jared are more alike than it would appear, which is why they seem to be such good buddies. Smdh. I still love her though.

  22. Nicolette says:

    Just read this on Jezebel.

    “Two days ago, a sometime model named Jamie Peck wrote of an experience she had on a shoot with Richardson six years ago. When she said she wanted to keep her underwear on because she was menstruating, Peck says Richardson asked her to take out her tampon so he could play with it, and make “tampon tea.” He insisted on being called “Uncle Terry,” and during their shoot, Richardson unexpectedly stripped naked.”

    I don’t know what’s more disturbing. His sickening behavior, or the fact that the fashion world continues to embrace him and celebrities happily keep posing for him.

  23. Jaded says:

    There’s this thing called “tainted by association” and those in the know are well aware of Leto’s kinky tendencies and Richardson’s horrible, misogynistic perversions. That’s why I’m shocked that Lupita would hang with these two, just as much as I shade Justin Theroux and Anniston for hanging with him as well. Anyone who debases, often forcibly, women the way Richardson (and by extension his cohorts like Leto) does is evil, period, and he should be avoided like the plague instead of fawned all over for his mediocre talent and famewhoring.

  24. als says:

    Actually Lupita posed for Terry Richardson (with Jared Leto of course) at the SAG Awards too, so she wasn’t just introduced to him in Paris.
    Anyway, professionally speaking, the pictures are fug – too much fun in there if you ask an ol’ blanket like me.
    And as for Leto trying to make this happen and Lupita just being nice…I think Leto is trying to make something happen definitely – like getting our attention, promoting his image, etc. The association with a rising, beautiful and talented star like Lupita is good for him.
    But Lupita…she’s just dumb or as Kaiser put it – ‘nice’. Girl, have some standards for God’s sake! Make him your bitch first!
    Oh and Lupita was aware about the rumours concerning her, Leto and Miley, so yeah, she googles and gossips. She probably googled uncle Terry too.

  25. ZAK says:

    People should stop putting halos on celebrities heads. They have flaws just like anyone else. Also I wish people would stop pretending that Lupita isn’t a 31 year old woman. Yes she is young but she isn’t a bright eyed 22 year old. Further more she has only played a big part in one film, can we stop pretending that this woman is the second coming of actresses after only one acclaimed performance. Lets see how well she does in other roles.

    • Violet says:

      This so much. Please she is not the second coming and her performance was amateur at best (all those hands gestures, they scream film class 101).

      • annie says:

        finally someone speaks the truth. god bless

      • nicegirl says:

        Absolutely. I thought I heard somewhere that she has had the benefit of an amazing education. So, good for her she has used it so well to gain acclaim for her breakout role. I am not sure she is the second coming, though, no matter how pretty she looks in designer wear.

  26. MrsLovely says:

    Why is everyone acting as if Lupita and Jared are the only two celebs connected to this freak. Gwen P, Katy Perry, Upton, Jolie, Lansbury…..the list goes on and on.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      I found that Gwyneth Paltrow posed for him–for a Harper’s Bazaar cover, Kate Upton
      I already knew posed for him, Katy Perry did for Rolling Stone, Angela Landsbury posed for him on Gentlewoman’s magazine (whatever that is)—I found nothing about Angelina Jolie posing for him, not even when she was younger i.e. a teen model.

      The only thing that links their names is some femail first crap about how Angelina isn’t any better than Jennifer or Justin (the post was about Justin and Jennifer being gross for being friends with Terry)….do you have a link? Because I think that it would be something that is VERY serious and hypocritical of Angelina, being that she is so in control of her own image (so she would know if he was a creep or not), and her work with sexual assault victims in Bosnia, her work with making Warzone Rape an actual crime against humanity, etc….so link???

      • YuYa says:

        I agree with you. I don’t think that Angelina would pose for this guy knowing his reputation. She such a pro-woman person that posing for him would never be an option. If she did, I would be very disappointed in her.

      • Cecilia says:

        Uncle Terry has done photo shoots with many influential people & no, I’m not condoning him. Our POTUS did a series of pics with him. You can just google that one. I bet he has done other political figures as well.

      • POTUS too? Good GOD this man has a wide reach.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        I knew that he posed w/Obama—I’m pretty sure it was covered on this site–or someone linked it, because I read about it on here.

        And yeah–that’s gross.

      • Cecilia says:

        Yeah, VC…that was me that threw up the link about the photo-shoot with POTUS. I was shocked & mystified that it had occurred.

      • No excuse for Pres. Obama either because you KNOW he has a team of people to vet every person he works with.
        Gross. I wonder what FLOTUS feels about that?

      • V4Real says:

        I thought the photo of him with Obama was from 2007 before he was elected President.

    • Dani2 says:

      Angelina Jolie? Show me the receipts.

    • bns says:

      Yup. If they want to be mad about this, they might as well hate every celebrity out there. Terry was all over Hollywood during Oscar week.

    • Andrea1 says:

      Nice try Mrslovely… But Angelina jolie has “NEVER” been photographed nor has she worked with Terry Richardson before.

    • sweetlyn says:

      Angelina jolie has never worked with Terry and for those siting the Harper bazaar cover she never posed for pictures or anything the magazine decided to use a paparrazi picture from the priemere of benjamin burton.
      Angelina jolie isn’t a hypocrite she talks the talk and walks the walk.

  27. smee says:

    There’s also a pic of St. Tilda on the same date in Terry’s Diary, so it’s nbd
    Her super cute lovah is next to her in that pic too……..

  28. judyjudy says:

    What’s that saying? When people show you who they are, believe them. Or something like that.

  29. booboolarue says:

    Ugggggggggggggggga i feel the need to scrub my monitor with bleach. Bleck.

  30. dagdag says:

    I lost interest in fashion photography for many reasons and quite some time ago. I had to google Terry Richardson and the list of people who shun him must be way shorter than the list of people who work with him:

  31. hissyfit says:


    Girl, don’t fall for that skeeve!

  32. Renee28 says:

    This isn’t the first time she’s been photographed with Terry. She’s obviously comfortable with him. She’s a grown woman not some naive teenager. People just fell for her carefully, crafted PR image.

  33. K says:

    I’m wondering if she’s cool with Leto because he’s not a real Hollywood guy; he’s more the rock star type … which is just as bad I suppose.

    • Em says:

      How is he not Hollywood? He dates Hollywood girls. Like paris Hilton, Lohan, Olsen twin, Diaz and tons of minor actresses. To me he is as Hollywood as they come. Someone like Matt Damon is not Hollywood.

  34. Em says:

    Lupita needs to get out of Hollywood ASAP. She is becoming so cliche. She was fresh and interesting when she first arrived on the scene.

    • taxi says:

      Fresh? Interesting? She “arrived” on the scene as the beneficiary & product of a massive PR award campaign, photographed constantly & provided with designer clothing to kick off her own single feature-movie career & TYAS. At 31, from an affluent & well-educated family, she isn’t naive. Her father is a college professor-turned-politician. Her mother is a businesswoman. She’s had PA jobs on major films since 2005. Lupita’s actively worked around the movie scene for 9 years & has surely noticed many aspects of her chosen industry.

      I doubt if she was inundated with attention from men until she was styled & promo’d as the newest actress-who-isn’t-white. Until TYAS, she was a PA then Yale drama school student who made a 9 minute documentary, not a beautiful butterfly on the party scene or a power-player. As often happens, people confuse the actress-person with her scripted film role and make inferences which are not necessarily correct.

      • Christy says:

        Thank you! I am so tired of people gushing about how ‘fresh’ and ‘innocent’ and ‘intelligent and lovely’ she is. She may well be, but her major exposure consisted of a very well run oscar campaign. Time will tell whether she is or isn’t all of those things. I should add I don’t love or hate her. I am curious to see where she goes from here though.

  35. candycanecane says:

    Honestly I had no idea who Terry Richardson was but I don’t live in the US. Is he covered by mainstream media? Is there a lawsuit against him or has he ever been arrested ? I am not sure if his background is known outside the US or the fashion/entertainment world…….Anyway,these pictures seem pretty spontaneous (I can see Lupita still eating) and to be fair it wasn’t exactly a private dinner for Lupita,Jared and Terry, there were other guests there and he took photos of them too. I guess since Jared is crushing on Lulu/or they are friends, I guess he sat next to her and Terry focused on them.Or maybe he just wanted to have pictures of the Oscar winners in his blog.Needless to say I am sure Lupita’s publicist probably had a breakdown going by some of your comments and FULLY BRIEFED my dear Lupita on the DISGUSTING PERVERSENESS that is ‘Uncle Terry’….So now if this Terry Person is so famous,who made him famous,because it sure isn’t Lupita ? Who else should be called out for making Pervy Uncle Terry famous?

  36. LadyS says:

    You know, Lupita went to Hampshire College which is well known to be a hippie school. I wouldn’t be surprised if she were WAAAAY more crazy than she lets on. I love her, but I keep in mind that she is an actress so anything is possible.

    • Cecilia says:

      Yes…she’s an actress. She was in a soap opera that was pretty risque — even doing some nude or partially nude scenes. She is comfortable in front of the camera & I’m betting she knows the score with Uncle Terry & Hollywood as a whole. She’s no baby — she’s in her 30′s.

      • L.L says:

        Yes because if a woman does any nude scene or is comfortable with her skin then that is equivalent to hanging out with terry richardson or being “crazy”

      • LadyS says:

        @Cecilia Yeah, I’m not convinced that she doesn’t know Terry. She’s very “art crowd;” I’m sure she’s been exposed to his work. If this is the second time they meet then she definitely has looked him up by now.

        @L.L I didn’t equate her doing nude work with being crazy, but rather work with Terry which is what everyone is freaking out about here. There is nothing about being “comfortable with [your] skin” that justifies posing for an exploiter of women. Granted she hasn’t really posed for him yet. My point is that she is not naive. She even mentioned once the culture shock of her college and how it liberated her from her need for structure. She’s a Brooklyn hipster who happens to own an Oscar now. I like her so far and don’t think she’s done anything wrong with these photos.

  37. Leah says:

    She needs to lie low for awhile.

    • AG-UK says:

      She won’t not this week she is on the cover of I think THR something about actresses and their stylist. Maybe next week/month.

    • candycanecane says:

      I don’t want her to lay low. She might have played a slave but imagine the stereotypes she has broken since she came into the limelight ? She has to work 1000x harder than someone like JLaw for example, who also campaigned hard last year just to get the same amount of work ( Which is unlikely). Anyway, no one forces anyone to click , read and comment on a Lupita story. I still can’t get enough of her. Lupita has an amazing appeal on her own but I am impressed by her publicist.I wish someone could do an article about her management/PR team. I am however hoping for some news on her next movie projects.Unfortunately, due to limited roles for black women in film, these might be a big challenge for her to surmount. I see her doing a lot of Broadway and a couple of supporting roles before another good one.But what do I know, I don’t want to put any limitations on this woman, she is here to break Hollywood rules, . She said she was prepared in Yale for a long trajectory to her career, not an Oscar on her first role.She must know her limitations already.Who knows what doors she will open for others.

      • AlmondJoy says:

        Candy: +1 I’m with you completely!

      • dagdag says:

        I will never ever understand that Hollywood thought-terminating cliche on limited roles for black women.
        In real life black women are in any and every type of profession and environment, why should this not be possible in Hollywood films?

      • Nick says:

        Love your comment!

      • Ag-UK says:

        Exactly. Hollywood has a very narrow view of AA actresses. They seem to have a few categories and Gabby Sibide is one that breaks the mold but she plays the sassy American. Even in TV how man AA actresses on? We can only wait and see maybe I will be wrong.

      • bns says:

        Spot on. Some people just don’t get it.

  38. mercy says:

    Maybe she turned a blind eye because he’s a friend of a friend she met at a party and he was nice to her and treated her with the kind of respect that he hasn’t shown many of his subjects. I can see where it would be hard for a polite person to confront or ignore him in a scenario like that. Or she might not be fully aware of his history. She may be 31, but she is relatively new to the scene and maybe still a little star struck. She’s a smart young woman. She’ll figure it out, if she hasn’t already.

    • lunchcoma says:

      Meh. I’d understand if she sat through dinner with him. She didn’t need to put on his glasses for a picture.

  39. lunchcoma says:

    Yeah, so yesterday when I defended her against the “needs to go away for awhile” thing? I take it back. If she’s going to do things like this, she needs to go away for awhile and come back when she has a project to promote.

    And, no, I’m not going to make excuses for her. She’s 31, extremely well-educated, and has worked in the industry in other capacities. She either knows what Terry is up to or should know.

  40. Karen says:

    Yesterday I read snippets of the piece about Terry and the new model that came forward about his abuse. I couldn’t even read it all, so upsetting and disturbing. I’m disgusted with all of them, particularly Obama. There’s absolutely no way that he or his staff were unaware, it’s just his usual pandering to the youth. I’m a “youth” and I’m appalled.

    The same goes from all those women – miley, miranda kerr, beyonce, gaga – that all preach love, acceptance, and girl power but have all worked with him in varying capacities. It’s no surprise these airheads are full of shit, but their association with him just really brings it home.

  41. DaisyDuchess says:

    i think since Lupita has only been in one film, where her character was one people sympathised with, and considering shes a good actress, people have confused the actor with the character. She wasnt born yesterday, she knows who terry is. deal with it.

  42. Tessy says:

    People are judging her by her appearance, because she’s so pretty and innocent looking. But she’s not stupid, she knows exactly what she’s doing. She’s out partying and having a good time with a party-er. She’s been around long enough to have heard stuff about creepy uncle Terry, and if she was turned off by him she certainly wouldn’t have posed with his filthy glasses on her face. btw… that Oscar dress suited her to a T, the sweet baby blue colour, with the deep plunging neckline down to her navel showing that she is no innocent. I think time will tell.

    • Mica says:

      +1000 agree. Heck it could be the other way around – she’s chasing after Jared. She could be a freak, she’s 31 and knows what she wants. If she’s hanging around these two perverts(Jared and Terry) then she’s not as innocent as everyone has been portraying her to be.

      If she ever does a full photo shoot with this creep Richardson, I would be thru with her.

      • nairobibluesky says:

        Uhh..that makes no sense.How is she chasing after Jared when she was contractually obligated to attend the Miu Miu show in Paris as was Elizabeth Olsen and Elle Fanning since their are the faces of the brand? Was she supposed to tuarn down a group dinner hosted by Miuccia Prada? What was Jared doing there anywaye,I thought Miu Miu is an exclusively women’s wear line. And no one really knows L upita or any of these stars personally .Anyway,the work of Hollywood is to build people up to tear them down.

    • L.L says:

      So if she wears a dress that is body revealing then she is “not innocent” and therefore dirty and not pure? What are you even insinuating?

  43. Double 07 says:

    Wasn’t this the miu miu dinner? With Elle, lea, miucca? They were all photographed. Tbh I don’t think she can decline being photographed at an event. That will be rude of her? I will give her a pass on this. Hopefully she’s not in a studio taking pictures with him.

    Also the media claims she’s with k’naan. That will make him the biggest dumb to me to have your gf opening flirting with Jared and deflecting question on their supposed friendship or whatever they have.

    • MatD says:

      Yeah I think you’re right. In the picture where Jared has his hands together like he has just clapped and Lupita is holding her fork, the reflection of the girl between them looks a lot like Elle Fanning sitting across from them at the table.

      Jared also posted a picture of Elle in Paris on his instagram (maybe from this dinner) that was captioned “Elle with her mouth full.” Actually, there are quite a few pics of Elle, Jared and Terry on her instagram from various occasions. That’s more interesting/worrying to me than these pics with Lupita!

  44. Lucretia says:

    She needs to get to work, or she’ll turn into a “celebrity” instead of an actor. And contributing to Leto’s ongoing self-promotion was cute for about five minutes.

    • Gypsy says:

      I don’t think with Leto it’s self promotion, I have been looking at a lot of the early photos of them and I think he wanted the woman, he pursued the woman and he got the woman he wanted and pursued.
      There are even pictures of Leto with her and her mother in deep conversation, so there was a formality to them getting together.
      They seem to make each other happy, he goes to Helsinki to perform and she waits for him to return to Paris the next day, he’s not spending any time with his band mates.

      Regarding her IMDB status, these are jobs reported by the actor’s PR people to IMDB, but if you are getting scripts and deciding what to choose then there will be nothing listed on IMDB until actor makes a decision and reports it.

      • Ag-UK says:

        He never went back to Paris those photos are from last week he is in Russia or wherever now he will be touring until mid Sep. No one knows what the situation is could or could not be only time will tell. The same with her career NOW if she drags herself to the middle of some country to follow him and sitting on the side if the stage then I will shut my mouth. However I have my own theory and i will see if it plays out.

      • Gypsy says:

        Actually the Helsinki concert was on Saturday 03/08/2014 then after he returned to Paris the next day and spent the 9th and and 10th in Paris on the evening of the 10th those selfies were taken.

        Don’t believe me check his band schedule.

      • Ag-UK says:

        Maybe you are right but seems odd to have a fashion show one week during PFW 5th Mar was the last day and then having a dinner a week later 9-11th when most of the fashion people would have gone.

      • Gypsy says:

        That’s quite true, that’s why I think the only reason why Lupita would hang around Paris is to wait for Jared Leto to do his concert and get back to Paris, then they do the selfies and the uncle perv stuff.
        I just hope she doesn’t spend her time waiting for a Rock Star to come home, because there are many -a heartbreak songs about that.

      • Steff says:

        Gypsy, there’s a difference between when some photos are taken, and when they’re Published. These are all pics ( incluced the J/L selfie ) of the same dinner at Paris fashion week on March 5th. Jared stayed only 2 days: at the Miu Miu event and the day after to record a French tv show called C Vous ( main reason he was in France ).

  45. Janet says:

    I don’t understand why any of the modeling agencies book him for photo shoots. It’s not like they’re unaware of his reputation for abusing models. He’s notorious for this. And I definitely can’t understand why any reputable celeb would want to be seen in the same vicinity with him, let alone sit at a table with him.

    • Double 07 says:

      Model agencies don’t book him. Clients like vogue, Harper baazer, hm and etc book him. The thing is he doesn’t take advantage of known established models with agencies, it’s the unknown ones with none of these that he takes advantage of. My question is why hasn’t any of these models sued him. Something needs to be done.

  46. Gypsy says:

    I see the standard you folks have set for Lupita’s associations, so.
    If you find out your husbands or boyfriend or you were working for someone who is accused as this guy is, and he is the one who signs the checks that feeds your family and pays those house and car notes, would you.
    1. Resign and take a lower paying job somewhere else, those you might not be able to afford the car note or mortgage – or perhaps the private school for your kids.
    2. Would you clean out your bank account of all the money you or your husband ever got from this guy and give it to charity o burn it.
    3. Or politely live with knowledge of those accusations, taking his money but never inviting him to your home.

    Since you want to be judgmental about Luptia’s choice to be polite with her “new boyfriend”s friend”, then you need to also judge yourselves.

    • FLORC says:


      They’re not dating. Are they?

      And as far as a lot of these comments go it’s approached from a casual relationship. Not Terry being Lupita’s meal tick or boss that signs her checks.

      Lupita doesn’t depend at all on Jared or Terry. And Jared doesn’t depend at all on Terry.

      I just can’t figure how this argument is relevent to the conversation.

      • Gypsy says:

        My point is you want to judge then also present yourself to be judged.

        This photographer is doing a job that benefits actors and models, these photos translate into money and fame for these people, so yes there is a meal ticket attached to this.

        Of course they are a couple, it’s obvious, my only problem with that coupling is that she’s with a Rock Star, and we all know Rock Stars are famous for falling in and out of love quickly, or cheating on the road or going on drink/drugs benders and hurting the ones they love.

      • Eleonor says:

        @Gypsy my problem with this is that she associates herself with a well known pervert, who use his power to assault young women. In this moment she is an oscar winner ,she doesn’t need to do this, she can have all the free publicity she wants without Richardson. In this moment she has the power to decide, she is not an unkown actress who’s looking for her big occasion.

      • Gypsy says:

        I just don’t see how she can be blamed, unfortunately Jared Leto has an history of association with uncle perv and right now Lupita doesn’t want to burst the happiness bubble, so when he’s around be polite and otherwise ignore him.

      • FLORC says:


        I guess my point is she’s become popular. VERY popular!
        An image was created. She was a beautful Yale educated, actress in a huge Oscar movie and proudly announces she loves her skin and no one should be ashamed of that.

        People took an interest in her over that. Now she’s tarnishing her image in the eyes of those who thought her a goddess of sorts. So, in many people are falling out of love with her just as easily as they fell in. By association there’s backlash.

    • lunchcoma says:

      It seems like a more accurate comparison would be if my boyfriend was friends with someone like Terry Richardson. Finding out something like that early in a relationship might be enough for me to decide my boyfriend isn’t someone I want to date. If I did decide to continue the relationship, I’d let my boyfriend know I wasn’t comfortable spending any time with Terry and that they’d need to have their friendship when I wasn’t around. If I bumped into him, I’d be civil but not warm. (I once dated someone who I had a friend who I disapproved of for less severe conduct, and that’s how I handled it then.)

      Employment situations are a bit different, but I wouldn’t engage in more than polite business socialization with someone who I thought was guilty of criminal behavior.

      • Gypsy says:

        I totally agree with you 100%.
        Lupita was being polite and nice but if you will notice what Leto did, at not time was Uncle next to or touching Lupita, Leto was always between them, the only contact was his glasses.. – I will bet Leto would never leave a room with Lupita alone with uncle Perv.

        Remember what Leto told Ellen on her show, when Ellen asked if the Paps saw Lupita leaving his Hotel the next morning he replied that she’s too classy for that to happen.

      • lunchcoma says:

        She’s wearing his glasses and taking pictures with him. To me, that’s past saying hello at the holiday party.

      • Gypsy says:

        Actually I was wrong there is on photo where she and Leto are on opposite sides of uncle perv pointing at each other.
        I would say judge her when she without Leto have a shoot with uncle perv in his studio.

      • lunchcoma says:

        Why? My judgment of her isn’t that she’s careless with her own safety. My judgment is that she’s willing to overlook someone’s crimes and mistreatment of women because her boyfriend and everyone else in Hollywood thinks he’s cool.

  47. I Choose Me says:

    Aaaaaand the backlash has officially begun.

    Don’t think Lupita knows about Terry’s rep. Why would she? Like someone upthread said, she’s not sitting behind a computer like we are reading gossip and Googling every celeb she’s met.

    Also, like it or not, Terry Richardson is a Hollywood player and meeting all right people and shoring up connections for later is all part of the Hollywood game if you want to make it there. So assuming she has ‘people’ I don’t think they’d tell her not to associate with Uncle Terry at this point. Not unless some kind of Woody Allen type scandal goes down and look how many people are still springing to defend that particular turd.

    People like Woody, Terry et al, know how to choose their victims. Ones who are vulnerable and easy to discredit. I’m certain to everyone else, they come off as perfectly nice/kind and or professional. I’m reasonably sure if I actually met say, Woody Allen and didn’t know what I know, it would be hard to reconcile his personality with what he’s being accused of.

    Let me also add that she’s not the first or last celebrity we like to hang with Uncle Terry. But it’s always interesting to see who gets given a pass and who doesn’t.

    • lunchcoma says:

      I don’t approve of anyone who I know hangs out with Terry. There are lots of degrees between loving someone unreservedly and hating them with a burning passion. I liked Lupita before. I like her slightly less now.

      I also don’t buy the claims that people in Hollywood are widely ignorant of their peers’ actions. We all know because some of the accusations have been public. I assume these people gossip about their peers and colleagues, just as the rest of us do.

  48. LadyS says:

    @Gypsy I don’t see anything “obvious” about her being in a relationship with Leto. They’re friends who won this year. They work in the same industry and like to hang out. She’s getting to know people. She probably sees Leto at the parties and chooses to hang out with him because he’s been nice to her so far. Big deal! People seriously need to chill out. She’s an actress not a friggin’ martyr. When has Hollywood ever really had clean and conservative people? They all have dirty laundry, hence why we come to websites like this one.

    Unfortunately for Lupita, she is now entering the realm of overexposure and because she is a black actress in lily-white Hwood people are way less forgiving. She needs to get to work ASAP. People are going to tire of her quick. They love to build them up only to tear them down again. She can’t afford that. There are no comebacks for the black girls.

    Also, it’s really annoying that people on here are claiming she is groundbreaking for a black actress. People, please!! There are many great black actresses we just choose to ignore them after a while. That’s how Hollywood works. The old white men rewarded a few black people this season so they can congratulate themselves with how liberal and progressively accepting they are. Now everyone goes back to their favorite blondes until another five years pass and they pick someone new to exalt. It’s really sad.

    I really hope Lupita overcomes this. People can be so cruel. For weeks you lot have been on here cheering her on and now the Oscars have passed so you hate her? She didn’t pose for Terry. They happened to be at the same party and she amused him a bit. Give me a break! IF and only IF she poses for him are we allowed to freak out. Until then…breathe!

  49. Nancy says:

    @ Gypsy…

    When I look at Jared and Lupita’s body language I think they are dating, and they never completely denied the dating rumors, just danced around it…Yes Jared does seem completely respectful towards her…

    To see them hanging out after the Oscars seems to confirm things IMO!

    • Gypsy says:

      Leto even did the “get Lupita’s mommy’s blessing” think and all that.
      1. Paris was a paid job for Luptia, but not for Jared who hopped a plane to Paris fashion show when the next day he had a concert in Helsinki – All the while complaining that he didn’t get any sleep.
      2. After Helsinki he returns to Paris the next day where Lupita is waiting.
      3. The following day in Paris they have dinner with Prada also, do that famous “4 selfie” and uncle perv snaps photos.

      Check out 1:50 minute into Ellen’s Leto interview:

      After a fantastic win like the Oscars you want to be with and share with the one you love and who you want to be proud of you, so Lupita did that and Jared by his itinerary did just that.
      Lupita doesn’t have the power to ban uncle perv and in polite circles (especially the French) you are polite to even your worst enemy.

  50. LadyS says:

    Again, I really don’t think she and Leto are a thing:

    I think it’s good for Leto’s image to be seen with a somewhat normal media darling though.

    • Steff says:

      I agree with you, there’s nothing better than a huge publicity, he’s smart.

      • LL2 says:

        Why is it so hard to consider that they just might genuinely be friends? How would you feel if someone who didn’t know you stated that your friends were just hanging with you to get ahead? If you have proof that’s one thing but to cast aspersions for no reason is something else.

    • LL2 says:


      Lupita and Jared have been hanging out together on the awards circuit since last year. You can see a photo of them goofing off together from last December on her instagram page. This was before Lupita was the “it girl” she is now. So to suggest that he is hanging around her for his image is a bit much. Why is it so hard to believe that they just click and enjoying hanging out? I don’t believe they are besties, but do enjoy running into each other at Hollywood functions.

    • LL2 says:


      I could be wrong, but I’m not buying the K’Naan story either. Lupita seems to hang out with males more than females. In fact, her best friend is a guy. I’ve seen her out with a couple of other males as well, they are likely all just her friends. It seems some are uncomfortable seeing Lupita hang out with an attractive white successful actor and feel the need to find her a black boyfriend quick. According to someone in another tread, K’naan already has a girlfriend.

      • Rachel says:

        @LL2-I agree. Lupita has many long time male friends. K’naan is one of them. Supposedly, he’s dating a redheaded chick. Even if they were dating briefly, it’s quite obvious something is with her and Jared. Once she started hanging with his friends, brother at parties, he was meeting her mom and the Paris trip…being a fan of Jared for a long time those are sort of clues right there. As someone said, if Jared wants a chick boyfriend be damned anyway. That being said, it doesn’t matter. People were bringing up the arrest history of K’naan, Michael Fassbender’s sketchy dating history when Lupita was rumored to be with them. And poor Jared, just because he has long hair and a rock star he gets dragged. Besides the fake fan fiction people believe about the dude from a decade ago. Bottom line is, Lupita is 31. She is a grown woman and looks at the internet. She makes the decisions of who she wants to be around. She’s also not stupid. She’s been around Terry at another party before with Jared. Also, it’s Hollywood. They think differently and are more forgiving, not as accusatory. I’m not going to attack her or even Jared because I’m not there and I don’t know them personally. Who knows? If they are or do get together, Terry is bad news then maybe she might be the person to wake Jared up to it. Sometimes, people are naive and don’t see how their friends are. That’s the thing…we don’t know. We only assume. They’re human. Let it play out. But, you can’t treat her like a child. If she dates Jared or another guy who is not a Yale grad or upper crust actor, or hangs with a rebellious crowd, then that’s who she is. You can’t put false expectations on these celebrities. No one said she was innocent. Maybe that’s why there is that connection with Jared she has…they may be more alike then you think or want to admit.

    • candycanecane says:

      Honestly I am on the Jupita ship but I think these two are just good friends who like each others company.They are probably laughing their asses off at the way people are pressed about a couple of pics.I am a 30 stm fan and to be fair Jared doesnt need the PR.Just check out some of his concert videos.Crazy packed and he just won an oscar. Lupita just won an Oscar and 20something other awards.I dont think they are at the point where they need to hang out just for PR.I think it would be easier if she was dating that cute guy she was at the basketball game with.He doesnt seem to be of Hollywood,or who was he?

  51. maggy says:

    ugh lupita the flawless goddess queen worthy to be worship dont let holliwood destroy you.

  52. Gypsy says:

    Lupita has chosen a hard life, by this choice.
    Dating a touring lead musician/rock star is a life of traveling to tours and waiting for him to get home, hopefully without any unwanted gifts.
    And as an actress when he’s home not touring she will be on movie sites for months.
    And if they love sex it will be hard, really, really hard not to cheat.

    The odds are against this relationship longevity.

  53. Steff says:

    Oh please, They are not still in Paris partying. Terry simply published these photos yesterday, BUt they were taken at the Miu Miu night of few days ago ( as you can see other guests at the table and even Elle Fanning ). Let’s not create a new topic based on old stuff we already knew.
    The only “new” element here is Terry, only because we didn’t have a chance to see him in other pics of the event, but just a nice selfie of Jared and Lupita. Nothing exciting about it, I mean Jared and Terry are often together at events, it’s normal Lupita could have joined them.
    I think they’re friends, who may have had some “adult-fun” because why not, but nothing more than that. He doesn’t commit.

  54. Mica says:

    I think that Leto is an opportunist and will take advantage of a situation to sell and market himself. If Leto and Lupita are dating(which I hope not) it will just be some months of quick sex and fun for Leto (that’s all I can see of their relationship).
    As I’ve said above, I just hope that Lupita doesn’t let Leto charm her into doing a photo shoot with his creepy best friend Terry.

    • Lucretia says:

      I agree with this. Leto likes being seen with the “it girl” of the moment. Flying to Paris to be with her gets him a lot more publicity that being in Helsinki with his band.

  55. janet says:

    Lupita is not all that! She has a nice toned upper body but her legs are thick and her ankles chunky. That is why all her dresses are cut so long and sometimes when she wears her dresses to the knees you can see these thick ankles and huge knees. AND, she is 31 years old. She can play the game and is an actress (and a very good one). By Summer, she will be a has been unless she scoops another good role.

    • LadyS says:

      WOW this is an incredibly bitter and, may I add, stupid comment! I don’t know what the hell her legs have to do with anything!!! She is a beautiful and intelligent woman with lots of talent. Why are we tearing her down like this? I’d rather have her “thick” legs than the talent-less, anorexic bobble heads we normally get!

    • Gypsy says:

      @Janet – Unfortunate for you we have video of Lupita in her Lingerie from her other movie and she has a great body and legs that she wasn’t afraid to show off.

    • annie says:

      i dont like her too but you really dont need to rip her to shred like that .Its downright spiteful take it easy please

    • AlmondJoy says:

      Your comment is utterly ridiculous.

    • FLORC says:

      This is a Lupita thread. If you want to body shame someone where you are agreed with go to a KK thread.

    • candycanecane says:

      Wow! Her imperfections make her even more relatable and beautiful.Are you perfect? Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.It is ok to not like her but you don’t have to tear her down like that.

    • Janet says:

      What Janet is this? Don’t get her mixed up with me. I’m the original Janet. She’s some lower-case janet. Her opinions don’t represent mine. I think Lupita is stunningly beautiful, imperfections and all. But she does need to be very careful whom she associates with.

  56. Gypsy says:

    I realize what this K’naan rumor is about, it’s an attempt to destroy Lupita’s character, first you start a fictitious rumor that her friend is really her boyfriend and then later attack her that as soon as she won the Oscar she dumped her boyfriend for Jared Leto, that it was an opportunistic trade up.
    Remember my words it will be coming soon.
    First you create the rumor then later you report the rumor as news.

    Take a look at her instagram page and you will see who her boyfriend real is.

  57. LL2 says:

    These photos were taken at the after-party for the Miu Miu fashion show. Lupita and Jared were hanging out with a lot of other celebrities. No big deal. As for Terry, maybe Miuccia Prada invited him to the party.

  58. Damaris says:

    The problem is that high expectations have been thrusted upon Lupita for a while now. She’s a normal woman. She’s got these Hollywood stars sprung over her. Who wouldn’t take advantage? If Jared Leto wanted to wine and dine you in Paris, would you not agree to it? Part of me wants her to slow down because people do resent overly successful actresses (Lawrence, Hathaway), but part of me wants her to go for it and take it all in before those opportunities are no longer an option. I wish her the best.

    And, yes, I do not like her befriending Terry Richardson. Not one bit.

  59. Mazunte says:

    I have a Theory #10: Jared finds her fun and attractive, and Lupita is lovely as she seems to be but also a normal woman – not a saint, not a bad person. She realized that Jared Leto can be fun in his unusual way (I’ve seen some of his interviews… he can be quite humorous), regardless of what he might or might not have done in his private life. So, they have become friends with benefits for some fun, while it lasts and with no drama.

    Regarding Terry. He also photographed the highly praised Tilda Swinton and Miuccia Prada in Paris. Isn’t it asking too much to expect Lupita to be above all these people?

    Besides, I know there are dodgy stories about Jared from the past, and maybe they are true, maybe not. But I have seen a couple of interviews of one of his closest female friends, Annabelle Wallis, and she seems to be a smart and classy woman. So, most probably Jared Leto can be a quite decent and cool guy to some women he appreciates, and Lupita has become one of them.

    All I’ll say is, all you judging judges, get your gavels ready, cos LUPITA is here to STAY n WIN n you will DEAL! LOL
