Ruth Negga covers the January 2017 issue of Vogue magazine photographed by Mario Testino and styled by fashion editor Tonne Goodman.
On fleeing to Ireland with her mother and waiting for her father to join them: “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 it’s 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.”
