Lupita Nyong'o's Prom Date Stood Her Up, Is Now Likely Crying Himself to Sleep Somewhere

Lupita Nyong'o stopped by Late Night With Seth Meyers on Monday night to talk up her starring role in Broadway's Eclipsed and ended up telling the host a story that was both sad and hilarious — she was stood up by her prom date. Lupita, clad in a gorgeous red Balmain ensemble, recounted the harrowing details to Seth: "I gathered up the guts to ask him to prom and he said 'Sure, sure, sure,'" she said, adding, "I told him what the colour scheme was going to be, since I was designing my own dress." What a catch, right? That guy is probably, definitely still kicking himself. Watch her story above now, then check out all the times she was a flawless human being, prom date be damned.
