Earlier this week, TMZ published photos of the two in a car, with Nyong’o seemingly ducked down in the passenger seat out of view, ahead of a trip to the grocery store in Los Angeles. They first sparked romance rumors in October, when they were seen together at a Janelle Monáe concert with a group of friends.
Representatives for Jackson and Nyong’o did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Jodie Turner-Smith and Joshua Jackson are seen at the 2023 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on March 12 in Beverly Hills, California.
Nyong’o and Jackson have both separated from their previous partners in recent months.

The Oscar winner did not mention Masekela by name in that post, but she wrote that she was choosing to “face the pain” caused by a breakup.
“Let’s face our pain so we don’t spread it,” she wrote at the time.
