Ruth Negga absolutely slayed the Oscars red carpet AND got her own E! fun fact


RUTH NEGGA HAS been consistently killing it on the red carpet all awards season – and tonight is no exception.

The Irish-Ethiopian actress, who is nominated for Best Actress for her role in Loving, was one of the night’s early arrivals and stunned in a custom Valentino gown.

We are not worthy.

Look closely and you’ll see that she is also wearing a badge in support of the American Civil Liberties Union.

And here’s what’s in her clutch.

The actress joined Ryan Seacrest for a criminally short interview in which she said, “I feel like I’m floating.”

weare E! E!

That interview was followed up by one of E!’s signature ‘fun facts’ stings in which we’re told fun facts about some of the night’s nominees.

E!’s fun fact about Ruth Negga? Despite speaking with a southern American accent in Loving, she was actually raised in “Limerick, Ireland” and usually speaks with an Irish accent. And… that was it.

Imagine! An actress sounding different to the character they play on screen. Very fun fact indeed.

Good luck tonight, Ruth!
