Saoirse Ronan

I wouldn't go down the route of having an assistant. I don't want to be like that. I want to be normal.

Saoirse Ronan

I play basketball, I surf and swim and go to the cinema and listen to music and read. I like shopping.

Saoirse Ronan

I'm very much for strengthening our industry at home. It's great now there's a lot of work happening but I think with Irish film in particular, the views were starting to get a little stereotypical and we were pigeonholing ourselves a little bit. We needed to get out of that.

Saoirse Ronan

I love New Zealand. It's my favorite place to shoot. It's one of my favorite countries to visit. The people, the food, the landscape, everything about it I love.

Saoirse Ronan

I don't think you could get anything worse than losing a child. I think if my child died, I would prefer it if I were dead.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Saoirse Ronan

I saw 'Clueless' probably when I was about 8 or 9 years old. And, I had certain films that I would fall asleep so it was 'Clueless' for quite a long time, and I used to just watch it every single night and knew every single line, every single quote.

Saoirse Ronan

Sometimes the director will want you to write about the character, sometimes he'll want you to live in the location that the character is from or something like that, but I don't usually make a lot of notes or anything like that.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Saoirse Ronan

When I can't get the character out of my head, and I'm in my bedroom and I start to actually act out the scenes that I've read in a script, I think okay, I really want to do this.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Saoirse Ronan

I try as best as I can to have a normal life. People recognise you, of course, and that's very strange. But I sort of leave my working life behind when I go home. That's my other world.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Saoirse Ronan

When I was younger, I was very athletic and I always loved sports and physical things.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Saoirse Ronan

I certainly don't feel like I am desperate to run away from a film set. I love the hustle and bustle. Everything is sort of mad right before a take, and then it just settles, and you've got these two minutes of a bit of magic. I just love that in film.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Saoirse Ronan

Once you move away from home, it's never quite the same again. You expect everything to be just as you left it, and it never is. It's almost the first step into adulthood, realising you've got to make your own way.

Saoirse Ronan

I've been dealing with so much press for Brooklyn, and now I am rehearsing for a play, and it is hard.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Saoirse Ronan

Ivo van Hove is directing The Crucible, and rehearses in quite an unusual way. We started rehearsals last week and dived straight into the first act, like, five minutes after we all turned up. No warm-ups. We were very intensely immersed in that whole world on day one. It was quite surreal because I've never done any theater before.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Saoirse Ronan

There are a lot of people who say, 'Yeah yeah, I'm a feminist,' and they're not, actually. I wouldn't want to throw that word around, because it's a very strong thing.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Saoirse Ronan

I like to get far away from myself when I'm acting.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Saoirse Ronan

I think it's important that we have strong, female characters in movies now, which can really leave an impression on people - especially young people - and that they're not 'sexy' or 'cool'.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Saoirse Ronan

I think 'Twilight' was such a phenomenon that it will be a while before anything like that will happen again. Cause it really influenced pop culture, and the stars of it - well, the people who became stars out of it - their lives were completely changed.

Saoirse Ronan

I know most of the photographers in Ireland. And if I don't want my photograph taken, they will leave me alone.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Saoirse Ronan

The majority of teenagers don't even make eye contact with people, even people of the same age.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Saoirse Ronan

Everyone thinks I'm ethereal. But I'm not like that, you know. I'm not ethereal. Well, I might have a little bit of that quality to me, that 'old soul' thing, but I'm not ethereal.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Saoirse Ronan

When I was younger, I would mess about and have a laugh with everyone. I was doing Atonement when I was about 12, and as we went to do this very serious scene, the director Joe [Wright] came up to me ... I'd been giggling right up to the beginning of the take. And he came up to me and said, "Okay, you need to be serious now." I completely idolized him.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Saoirse Ronan

Joe Wright was almost like a teacher, to be firm with me, that really stuck with me. And that helped me as I've gotten older.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Saoirse Ronan

I grew up my whole life in Ireland and obviously sound very, very Irish. I feel like it's just one of those things that just charms the socks off of people.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Saoirse Ronan

I've always been quite mature because of the way my parents brought me up. They were very good at talking to me like a person rather than a baby, and I was around so many actors and directors from such a young age because my dad is an actor. I was more comfortable with adults rather than actually being an adult child.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Saoirse Ronan

If I'm in the middle of a take and I start to think about what I'm doing, I just mess up and I have to stop and so I find that for me, you really need to trust your instinct.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Saoirse Ronan

I was born in New York, so I'd love to study at New York University.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Saoirse Ronan

I'm all right, not as good as my mom is. Maybe because I don't have kids.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Saoirse Ronan

That's what acting is. You're pretending to be someone else.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Saoirse Ronan

I like books that are exciting and that make you think about things, as well.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Saoirse Ronan

I did find New Zealand similar to Ireland. The people, obviously. I found that, ironically, although these two countries were very far away from each other, their humor was so similar and their outlook on things was quite similar as well.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Saoirse Ronan

I think that when you're an actress, you have to think about what kind of a role model you're going to be. I hope that I'm a good role model for young girls. I'm not going to, if people still want me in their movies, I don't want to be one of these girls who goes around partying every night and is in rehab. I don't want to do that.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Saoirse Ronan

I've always wanted to act and I grew up a little on film sets when my dad was working as an actor.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Saoirse Ronan

One of the things that would steer me away from a franchise is that I'm playing the same character all the time and I wouldn't want to be known for that.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Saoirse Ronan

When I was younger and in primary school, I'd do maybe a film a year, and I had to adapt to being away from everyone for a couple of months.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Saoirse Ronan

I've grown up with my parents' music tastes, listening to Fleetwood Mac and the Rolling Stones.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Saoirse Ronan

For me, clothes are about individuality. When I wear things that are different and it works, it makes me feel good.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Saoirse Ronan

I will always have a child in me. That is what Pete Jackson has got, what a lot of the directors I have worked with have. It is about knowing how to have fun and that is something I always want to hold on to.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Saoirse Ronan

It's too distracting to read about yourself. You want to be perfect and you want everyone to love you, and that's never going to happen.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Saoirse Ronan

There's no one out there like Quentin Tarantino. His films have a signature look, and they never just stick to the same kind of story.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Saoirse Ronan

I like books that are exciting and that make you think about things, as well. I like things that have a twist - like 'Atonement,' which I haven't read obviously, as I'm a bit young.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Saoirse Ronan

I appreciate the written word and spoken word more, but Atonement sort of established so much of me. It was a character that didn't really speak, and I found that a lot of the roles I was gravitating toward after that were kind of nonverbal.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Saoirse Ronan

I've always been quite an active person especially when I was younger. When I was in primary school, I used to play lots of sports. I was a sprinter and I did basketball and swimming and Gaelic football and things like that. So I always thought, I guess, that it would be fun to incorporate that much physical activity and work into a dramatic piece.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Saoirse Ronan

My whole life I try to make into a comedy, so it would be nice to see that onscreen.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Saoirse Ronan

I've basically grown up with Harry Potter, as so many kids my age have. It's kind of a part of my life.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Saoirse Ronan

When I am on set or rehearsing for the play, the only thing I can talk about is the work I'm doing. In that way, I home in on what I am doing at the time. So maybe I am a terrible multitasker.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Saoirse Ronan

I don't feel isolated on a film set. In a way you do because you don't really mix with the outside world; you're just sort of working non-stop for a few months, but you've got so many people around you.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Saoirse Ronan

'Romeo And Juliet' is the classic love story. When two lovers are separated and trying to get back to one another, that's fiercely romantic and something you become glued to.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Saoirse Ronan

The written word can be powerful and beautiful - but films transport us to another place in a way that even the most evocative words never can.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Saoirse Ronan

With stores like Topshop and H&M you can find really great stuff, but I do like designer things as well, and I'm lucky because they approach me to wear their stuff. I really love Miu Miu.
