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.

The new cover for the November 15 Issue of The Hollywood Reporter is here! And it features Jessica Chastain, Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Stone, Allison Janney, Mary J. Blige and Saoirse Ronan! Our gallery has been updated with scans from the magazine, thanks to my friend Luciana, from jessica-chastain.com, and the featured photoshoot. You can read ther interview below.
Six top actresses — including Mary J. Blige, Jessica Chastain, Allison Janney and Saoirse Ronan — open up about risky roles and how the industry’s culture of abuse might finally be on the verge of change: “I feel hopeful because we’re not ignoring it anymore.”
Jennifer Lawrence had some advice for recent New York transplant Mary J. Blige on acclimating to life in Los Angeles. “Just make friends with your neighbors, like I did,” Lawrence, 27, said to Blige, 46, before the start of The Hollywood Reporter’s annual Actress Roundtable, held Nov. 11 at Line 204 Studios in Hollywood. The mother! and Mudbound stars were meeting for the first time, but Lawrence is already good friends with fellow Oscar winner Emma Stone, 29. And three of the participants — Stone (Battle of the Sexes), Jessica Chastain (Molly’s Game), 40; and Allison Janney (I, Tonya), 57 — worked together on 2011’s The Help. And all seemed endlessly fascinated by the thick Irish accent of Saoirse Ronan (Lady Bird), 23, so much so that nearly everyone attempted their own Ronan impression before the hourlong conversation was over. Of course, it wasn’t all laughs, especially not this year with the horrors of sexual harassment in the headlines. The actresses came with strong opinions on the subject, which quickly segued into a frank debate on how sexism and harassment are intertwined with the issue of pay inequality in Hollywood. Depressing? Yes, but given the attention on this subject, Janney noted, “It’s exciting to think of our culture changing.”
