Real talk: We're still not over Lily Gladstone's scene-stealing performance in Killers of the Flower Moon.

The 37-year-old actress, who stars as war veteran Ernest's wife, Mollie, received high praise from critics for her work, including her co-star, Leonardo DiCaprio. When the actress made history as the first Indigenous person to win a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Drama Motion Picture, DiCaprio celebrated her victory on Instagram and wrote, "Lily, you are the heart and soul of this film, a formidable force and an incredible talent. Congratulations, friend."

The actor also gave Gladstone a special shoutout after she scored a historic Oscar nomination for Best Actress. On IG, he said, "Congratulations to my dear friend @LilyGladstone for making Oscars history, as the first Native American woman to be nominated for Best Actress in Killers of the Flower Moon, and the fourth Indigenous actress to ever earn a nomination in the category."

The co-stars did a phenomenal job of portraying a romantic couple on-screen, but now, we're turning our attention to Lily Gladstone's dating history IRL. Does she have a boyfriend? And what has she said about her love life? Here's what we know.

1. Does Lily Gladstone Have a Boyfriend?

Gladstone has not publicly confirmed whether she's in a relationship, likely because she prefers to keep this part of her life out of the spotlight. Since the actress has not shared any dating updates in her interviews or on social media, it appears that she is single.

2. What Has She Said About Her Love Life?

Gladstone tends to steer clear of this topic in her interviews. However, the actress did confirm in 2023 that she goes by both she and they pronouns. She told People, "In most Native languages, most Indigenous languages, Blackfeet included, there are no gendered pronouns. There is no he/she, there's only they."

She added, "Our gender is implied in our name. But even that's not binary. There were lots of women historically and still now who are given men's names. They fulfill more of a man's role in society as far as being provider, warrior, those sort of things. So, yeah, my pronoun use is partly a way of decolonizing gender for myself.”

3. Who Has She Dated In the Past?

Gladstone may not be vocal about her dating status, but she did open up about a past relationship with her high school sweetheart.

As it turns out, he gave her a thoughtful gift to wear if she ever attended the Oscars. Gladstone told People, “He got me out of a little, just one of those little machines where you drop a couple quarters in and then you get a little prize back. He had gotten these little star glasses, like these little tiny kids' glasses with stars on them. He said, ‘You have to keep these and you have to wear them to the Academy Awards when you go one year.’”

She continued, “I still have them. If I end up going this year, I'll dig them out, and I'll keep them in my purse at least.”

If Gladstone steps out on the red carpet with star glasses, we'll know why.

4. Does She Have Any Children?

As far as we know, the Quantum Cowboys star does not have any children. However, she's a proud dog mom.

Gladstone has shared a few snaps of her adorable pup, Birdy, on Instagram. In 2018, she paid a special tribute to Birdy for International Puppy Day and wrote, "Missing my goofball. Don’t tell this sweet derpy face I spent #internationalpuppyday with two kittens."
