Saoirse talks to The LA Times

Saoirse talks to The LA Times

Saoirse continues to promote Lady Bird all over the United States, and The Los Angeles Times has just posted a new interview with her, which features a brand new photo session. We’ve added it to our gallery, and you can read their article below.

When Saoirse Ronan found out she’d be spending a couple of weeks in Los Angeles to promote her new film, “Lady Bird,” she asked to stay in an apartment instead of a hotel. She wanted to be able to light her Diptyque candles, do her own laundry and drink herbal tea before bed.

“I think it’s good for me to go back at the end of the night and look after myself,” says Ronan, 23.

But when she arrived at her temporary L.A. home, she found bags of groceries from Whole Foods awaiting her. Her mother, more than 5,000 miles away in Ireland, had ordered the provisions online.

“She bought vegetables for me to cook with,” the actress says. “I have such a great mam. She makes sure I’m getting a good dinner from across the pond.”

Ronan is exceptionally close to her mother, Monica. Growing up as an only child in Carlow, Ireland’s second-smallest county, she relished her relationship with her homemaker mother and actor father. They’d all watch “Seinfeld” together, and Ronan was such a rule-follower that she willingly did the dishes, because she wanted her parents “to be happy.”

Saoirse Talks To Collider

Collider published an interview with Saoirse this week. She talks about Lady Bird and Mary Queen of Scots. Read it below:

Collider: This is such a great film, with such heart to it. Did you immediately get that from reading it?

SAOIRSE RONAN: Yeah! It was a very well-rounded script, in terms of the story and the characters, from the very first time that I read it. Actually, the draft that I read, initially, wasn’t far off from what we ended up shooting with, anyway. Nothing really changed. It was really nice to have that. Even then, we knew we were making something very special to us, but with a film that small and one that has a female lead who’s younger, that doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s going to be a success, commercially. So, the fact that that’s happening is amazing. It’s really exciting, actually, for myself and (writer/director) Greta [Gerwig]. It really feels like a girl power moment to have a film like this actually reach a wider audience. And not just the gender, just a film being so intimate is not necessarily seen as profitable. It’s great that that whole idea is starting to change now.
