If you don’t know the name Ruth Negga, you will now! The actress of Irish and Ethiopian descent is as breathtakingly beautiful as she is talented, and audiences will soon be falling in love with her powerful performance in the new biopic Loving.

The film, directed by Jeff Nichols, tells the true story of Mildred (played by Negga) and Richard Loving (played by Joel Edgerton), a Virginia couple whose interracial marriage in 1958 led to a landmark Supreme Court case and the abolition of anti-marriage laws based on race.

HipHollywood sat down with Negga, who is currently starring on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and Edgerton, to talk about their performances that are already generating Oscar buzz. “I knew this film was special,” said Edgerton, who had previously worked with Nichols on the film Midnight Special. “I was like unless someone forget to turn on the camera, there’s no way people won’t fall in love with this film.”

Negga, who herself is of mixed race, also told us she believes the film is already gaining buzz because its subject message is still so relevant, with many people dealing with racial and marriage inequality in this country today.

Loving hits theaters November 4th.

Annihilation is one hell of a visually stunning sci-fi film with five female leads on an expedition to uncover the mysterious phenomenon that is expanding across the American coastline.

For Natalie Portman, Tessa Thompson and Gina Rodriguez, the film, which also lends a voice to what is being called the year of the woman, dressing in head to toe military gear and going through tactical training was a bonding experience.

“”t was really fun. It’s weird to say that. But to have all these women in military training together, where we had to do these exercises … it was a great bonding experience with each other.” Portman told us.

And although the women had the opportunity to use real guns, firearms is not something the ladies of Hollywood advocate. “I’m anti gun to be honest,” Rodriguez said. “I say no guns. There’s no reason for people to have guns especially when you have these,” she said while holding up her firsts.

This past week Gina has been very vocal via social media about gun legislation and the idea behind policy and change following the tragic high school massacre an Parkland, Florida.
Annihilation, also starring Oscar Isaac, hits theaters on February 23.
