Ruth Negga on Hollywood's Lack of Diversity: It's Unacceptable

Ruth Negga on Hollywood's Lack of Diversity: It's Unacceptable

Ruth Negga stuns on the cover of Vogue magazine’s January 2017 issue, on newsstands December 20.

Here’s what the 34-year-old Loving star had to share with the mag:

On her and her mother fleeing to Ireland and waiting for her father to join from Ethiopia: “We were going to go to America but my dad didn’t get out in time.” Three years later, her father died in a car accident. “We found out in a letter and a phone call. This was 1988. There wasn’t any grief counseling for kids.”

On Hollywood’s lack of diversity: “[It's been] unacceptable for a long time, and its becoming clearly an embarrassment.”

On Loving: “The film is reminding us that there’s a conversation that we need to be having still…It does annoy Joel and me when people say it’s a quiet film. Because it doesn’t feel very quiet to us. It feels really loud.”

FYI: Ruth is wearing an Alexander Wang shirt and Rodarte ear cuff on the cover.

Isla, 40, was the recipient of the Trailblazer Award from AACTA president Geoffrey Rush for her work advocating for strong comedic roles in Hollywood while building her career as an acclaimed dramatic actor and an author.

“It’s the pinnacle of my career so far, and a complete honour,” Isla expressed (via The Guardian). “There aren’t many roles for gingers, particularly because Amy Adams stole them all. I’d also like to thank Donald Trump for showing the world that it’s okay for unqualified orange people to win things.”

Mel‘s latest film Hacksaw Ridge swept the awards during the ceremony, winning five major prizes – for Best Lead Actor, Best Supporting Actor, Best Original Screenplay, Best Direction and Best Film.

Scooter Braun & Piers Morgan Feud on Twitter Over Cruz Beckham

Scooter Braun, Cruz Beckham‘s new manager, and British personality Piers Morgan are feuding about Cruz, 11, and his new music career.

The young singer put out his first Christmas song “If Every Day Was Christmas.” All proceeds for the song are going to benefit a charity called Make Some Noise.

“Why don’t you go to school mate? Because you’re not famous, your parents are famous. Carry on your education, and stop putting these kids into the public domain, while simultaneously saying ‘privacy!’” Piers said on Good Morning Britain.

Scooter responded, “He is an 11 year old who wanted to make a song to help other kids. Once again Piers shows why he is a jackass and why his show was cancelled.”
