Ac­tor Ruth Negga loves work­ing with her part­ner Do­minic Cooper be­cause she thinks the en­ter­tain­ment busi­ness can be “lonely” with­out some­one to sup­port her.

“It can be so lonely ilm­ing, so it’s like your buddy and your back up. He’s got my back and I’ve got his. Very much so,” Negga told “Harper’s Bazaar” mag­a­zine, re­ports fe­

Ear­lier this year, Negga was nom­i­nated for an Os­car in “Lov­ing”, in which she played Mil­dred Lov­ing, one half of a mixed-race cou­ple who chal­lenged the US le­gal sys­tem for the right to marry and live to­gether in Vir­ginia in the 1960s.

She misses the char­ac­ter so much that she of­ten re­watches a doc­u­men­tary about the late ac­tivist and her hus­band Richard.

Negga says that even if she never works again, she’ll al­ways be thank­ful for that movie.

She said: “Hon­estly, if I never do any­thing again, I got to be in the or­bit of re­ally spe­cial peo­ple.”

Ruth even wor­ries she’ll never ind another role that matches her ex­pe­ri­ence on “Lov­ing”.
