Hollywood star Natalie Portman has praised Irish actress Ruth Negga, describing her as a “rare, powerful talent”.
The Black Swan actress is tipped to receive a Best Actress Oscar nomination for her role as Jackie Kennedy in an upcoming biopic about the late former US first lady, and says she thinks former Love/Hate star Negga could take home the gong for her performance in Loving.
Negga stars alongside Joel Edgerton in Jeff Nichols’ civil rights drama Loving, which is based on the true story of a Virginia couple who were jailed for their interracial marriage in the sixties.
Portman was full of praise for Negga’s performance and the film’s message, telling The Irish Sun: “Loving is such an important story to tell, given the unfortunate relevance in today’s society.
“It makes me hopeful and happy that this business is recognising the heightened significance of projects like this and how crucial they are for audiences.
“People are definitely talking about Ruth and the extraordinary emotion she conveys and that to me, indicates a rare, powerful talent.
“It’s not the final word but awards can be vital in broadening the audience for a movie, especially smaller independent projects so you hope it gets that recognition.
“And I’m sure the movie and Ruth’s performance will.”

To some people, the act of falling in love is very much like falling into pieces. For when they love, they love all of you. They do not abandon any parts of you, they take you for who you are entirely. And when the night comes to tuck the sun into the moon, they tuck your brokenness into their bones even if they wake up in pieces in the morning. Those people, they are build to break each time they fall in love.
