ifwt_Corey Hawkins x Lupita N

Straight Outta Compton has taken its actors – all relative unknowns before the film – and made them into celebrities overnight. Of course the focus is on the main three guys: Corey Hawkins (playing Dr. Dre), O’Shea Jackson Jr.‘s fine ass (playing his father, Ice Cube) and Jason Mitchell (playing the late Eazy-E,) and besides gaining quite the social media following in the last few weeks and having their name and faces plastered on posters and screens across the globe, it looks like their love lives are getting a boost as well!

Earlier this week, actress Lupita Nyong’o posted her very first #MCM…and it went to none other than Mr. Hawkins (aka Dre if you’re still not solid with who’s who yet, LOL.)

“My first #mcm is the irresistible @CoreyHawkins who plays Dr. Dre in #straightouttacompton. This is us laying back after a day’s work on the movie #NonStop. So proud of you, blood. #startedfromtheSKYnowwehere. #goseehimnownow in theaters.”

So they’re together working on a film right now – which would explain why he’s not with the guys on their European press run right now…but does this mean that they’re just showing some co-worker love, or could it be the real deal? Corey’s caption was interesting as well:

“Repost @lupitanyongo | Well… There it is. I guess it’s never too early for my #WCW(Everyday) ?#startedfromtheSKYnowwehere”

Do you think these two make a cute couple?
