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.

    I’ve seen the documentary on the Lovings. It is a very compelling story. But I won’t be seeing this movie and it’s 100% because the two stars won’t shut up complaining about my country. We have our problems, but they don’t need to be hashed out every single time some Hollywood actor has a movie to sell. SICK OF IT.
