Manti Te'o isn't the only one with an imaginary girlfriend.

"The Daily Show" host Jon Stewart says his girlfriend, "Zero Dark Thirty" actress Jessica Chastain, has, like, totally died.

"My girlfriend totally exists," said Stewart, mocking the fake-dead- girlfriend troubles of Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o. "She's going through a tough time -- she died."

With a slight grimace, Stewart added: "And then also fell off a cliff ... of leukemia."

Stewart interviewed Chastain on Wednesday about her leading roll in Kathryn Bigelow's "Zero Dark Thirty."
