Loving's Ruth Negga & Joel Edgerton Pose for 'Vogue'

Loving‘s Ruth Negga and Joel Edgerton pose together in this photo shoot for Vogue magazine’s latest issue.

Here’s what the pair had to share with the mag:

Joel, on Loving‘s message: “A robin’s a robin, a sparrow is a sparrow.. That’s the double beauty of the film. It’s a racial period piece, but it also echoes very loudly today.”

Ruth, on identifying with her character Mildred: “Land and home and community are superimportant. When I was playing her, I tried to imagine I couldn’t go home again because of whom I married. It must have drained the lifeblood from her. When I was a kid in Ireland, there were not very many black people. I was very much like the strange brown thing, intriguing and cute. I didn’t experience racism there. The first time I did was in London. It was that moment that you realize you’re black. A kind of lifting of the veil.”
