Ruth Negga. Ireland's Loveliest Actress.

Yup. According to a poll conducted by Film Ireland, Miss Ruth Negga is the sexiest actress to hail from these shores.

The poll is actually part of a wider survey conducted by the magazine for their January/February issue. An issue that fittingly enough deals primarily with sex and Irish cinema. (I merely thought that the lovely girl angle would reel in more punters. Cynical?)

The issue is quite a fascinating read. Paddy Breathnach, Lenny Abrahamson and Colin McCarthy all talk about shooting Irish sex. Mark O'Halloran and Niamh Creely discuss the results and implications of the various polls. Mairead Whelan contemplates the murky depths of Irish porn, or Lepreporn. Irish Film Censor John Kelleher offers some interesting insights into Irish film censorship in our new era of atheist perversion and skiing holidays. For example:

"By the way, it is not an offence for a retailer to sell an over 18s film to someone under 18, that's not a crime. It's absolutely crazy... If we made a porn film available as an 18s to a kid, it wouldn't be illegal."

Oh, yes, lest I forget. Colin Farrell topped the poll as the sexiest Irish male actor alive today. In other earth shattering news, most footballs are spherical and gravity still works.

Lepreporn? That's just wrong.

At first glance, I read that as leper-porn.

Gimme: I'm afraid that I did not make that up. I would be quite proud/disturbed if I had!

Slurkid: Now that's just so very wrong. So very wrong indeed. Huzzah!

Hi, Merely returned here to advise you regarding Mobile Monopoly. This is a superb technique and WILL make you money, especially seeing as you own a website. Take a quick look at the video, the strategy is about using Mobile Advertising which is completely new and an unexposed market where you can make thousands by doing hardly any work. I assure you that after you watch their short video it will change you and it will start making you think. said...

Her career almost ended before it began after she became pregnant at 17 but she survived the scandal of being a young unmarried mother to become a massive star, scoring hits including the themes to the James Bond films Goldfinger and Diamonds Are Forever.
