Ruth Negga is kicking off the upcoming award season with style and class.

The 34-year-old actress, who is drumming up a ton of buzz for her role in Loving, recently talked about why she was interested in the part.

“I was moved by the Lovings’ story because of my own background as a mixed-race person,” Ruth told the Los Angeles Times. “I was also drawn to this great love story that has never been told.”

She added, “We’re living in a very tumultuous time. People are looking for integrity somewhere, for a direction to take. The Lovings’ story isn’t over.”

Ruth stepped out for the Indie Contender’s Reception held during 2016 AFI Fest presented by Audi at Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel on Sunday (November 13) in Hollywood.

Others in attendance included Chris Pine, Miles Teller, Adam Driver, Kate Beckinsale, Rebecca Hall, Viggo Mortensen, Margo Martindale, and Sally Field.

Matt Ross Only Had Eyes For Viggo Mortensen To Star In 'Captain Fantastic'!

Viggo Mortensen flashes a smile alongside Matt Ross while attending the photo call for their latest film Captain Fantastic held during the 2016 Rome Film Festival at Auditorium Parco Della Musica on Monday (October 17) in Rome, Italy.

While promoting the flick, writer-director Matt, 46, expressed his love for Viggo and how he only wanted him for the leading role.

“I’ve admired him since he was in [Sean Penn's 1991 film] The Indian Runner and I’ve followed his work for years,” Matt expressed (via Stuff). “I think he brings an integrity, gravitas to everything he does and that his choices as an actor speak volumes. I also believe that the lead actor is in some ways the public face of the movie, so for me this was a statement of artistic intent, aligning myself with him.”

Viggo Mortensen Calls Out Actors Behaving Like Babies On Set!

Viggo Mortensen is dapper in a blue suit while attending the premiere of his latest film Captain Fantastic held at UGC Cine Cite Bercy on Monday (October 3) in Paris, France.

While promoting the flick, the 57-year-old actor opened up about the infantilised behavior that sometimes happens on set of big budget films.

“It can. But people let themselves be infantilised. And you set the tone as an actor,” Viggo expressed (via The Guardian). “Young actors see older actors behaving in infantile ways. ‘I want the biggest trailer. I want to go to the premiere in this country and take my family even though the distributor has to pay for the hotel and it’s going to make it harder for them to buy another movie.’ Having their agent fill their contract with privileges then saying, ‘Oh, it’s in my contract’, as if they had nothing to do with it. As adults these are not good excuses. And the way you behave on set, how you talk to the crew. A lot of experienced actors choose not to even stay around off camera, or do such a poor job on camera it’s obvious they couldn’t give a f*ck what you’re doing. I’ve had to say to an actor in a scene where the focus was on me: ‘You know, you seem very tired, why don’t you go home? I’d rather just do this with someone from the crew.”

“I say this without naming names. But it’s just one example of the piggishness,” Viggo added. “Then there’s the sense of competition, fueled by these mushrooming award shows. Accepting jobs because you might get nominated. Trying to win scenes. They’ve decided to cry because it’s going to get them their nomination, and the other actor doesn’t matter a fuck. But that also happens in independent movies. It’s not unique to studio movies. It’s not unique to American movies. I’ve seen that working in London. A movie only works because people adjust to each other. And if they don’t, well, the philosopher Lao Tzu said that if you don’t change direction then you may just end up where you’re headed.”
